Don't you love a New Year? A fresh start? A new beginning?
So do I! This is the time of year that is such an exciting time for The Cottage. We are planning what we want to work on this year to make our guest home the best stay possible for our guests. I love going to hotels and getting ideas of ways that we can bring the comfort, convenience and style of a great hotel to a smaller setting of The Cottage while still making it feel like home.
We've been brainstorming and lots of details will be getting fine tuned this year...stay tuned because soon you will be seeing pics of some of our projects getting underway. I can't wait for you to see what we have in store for 2017!
Tessa and I at my wedding in June
This post feels a little overdue! Finally, it is time to really say that the Cottage is just about ready to go! What a fun journey! I first discovered and fell in love with this house when my friend Tessa was moving to Michigan and stayed there a couple weeks before they moved. That was when it was first a Guest House. I was in high school at the time and all I knew was that the time I spent there with her was my last few weeks before she moved (Tess and I are still close 11 years later and she still lives in Michigan). Since then I have always had sweet memories at this little house! A couple years after high school, I had the opportunity to rent it while I went to college at WTAMU. Since then, I purchased the house, lived there for several years and always dreamed of opening it as a Guest House again one day. The day has come! In June, I married the love of my life and we moved into our new home together. He was supportive of me opening it as a Guest House...so here we go!
