Susanne is our oldest cottage and was built in 1962 by Gerrit, the property owner's father. He spent his summers there until he passed away in 1978. His wife continued to spend her summers there until the early nineties. Susanne was named after Gerrit's oldest granddaughter.
In 2005 this cottage was totally renovated and updated, but you'll still see much evidence of its hominess. The entire cottage is paneled in knotty pine on the walls and ceilings. The spacious kitchen and great room is flanked by a large master bedroom/study and an additional smaller bedroom. It has a unique brick fireplace and a pullout bed for smaller children or visitors in the great room. The master bedroom has a queen size bed (two twin beds) together with a small study. The other bedroom has two day beds. The total cottage size is about 600 sq. ft. The cottage has an HD TV with satellite service and a DVD player. Also, high speed Internet is now available. Note that the pictures below were taken before the HD TV was installed.
The cottage has cathedral ceilings and a large bay window providing a striking view of the sun setting over the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. It has a single bathroom with tub and shower. For the occasional chilly night or morning, there is an electric baseboard heater. It is gently nestled in the trees and very well insulated. For the occasional warm day, the great room and the smaller bedroom have ceiling fans.
