A charming Michigan lake cottage offers ultimate weekend getaway

beach-style-dining-room

This gorgeous beach style cottage designed by Visbeen Architects in collaboration with Francesca Owings Interior Design offers an upscale family retreat in White Lake, Michigan. The home provides comfortable living spaces throughout for both adults and children alike. The interior color palette was inspired by the natural beauty of the lake that the property is set next to.

The design of the cottage was maximized to capture sweeping views of the lake from almost every room. An open concept floor plan enables easy family living and entertaining. Separate living spaces for both the children and adults provides a fun weekend escape for the whole family to enjoy.

What We Love: This beach style cottage provides a warm and comfortable living environment, catering to the needs of a family who enjoys this home as a weekend getaway. Spectacular waterfront views helps to create a serene haven to soak in the sights and sounds of the lake throughout the cottage. The expansive windows also provides luminosity, helping to keep the spaces feeling bright and airy… readers, tell us, what is it you most appreciate about the design of this home?
