Warm and inviting cottage getaway on the shores of Lake Superior

This inviting cottage was designed by Rehkamp Larson Architects as a family getaway home for three generations, nestled in the woods of Bayfield, Wisconsin. The architects positioned this home just above the rugged cliffs on the shores of Lake Superior. 

The house is rotated on the site and angled in its relationship to the lake, allowing filtered light through the trees and views both up and down the shoreline. A covered front entry, screen porch and lakeside patio provide a range of shelter and exposure for the beautiful summer weather, cool fall nights and windy days.

Project Team: Architect: Rehkamp Larson Architects | Interior Design: Fortier Interiors | Contractor: Lake Effect Builders

Inside the heart of the floor plan is a large double-sided fireplace open to dining on one side and lodge room on the other—the perfect place to hunker down during winter storms. The house is designed for one- level living on the main floor with additional bedrooms for three grown children and grandchildren upstairs.

An attic loft is accessed by a ships ladder and provides space for toys and play. Masculine spaces in the lodge room and study balance with more refined feminine spaces in the kitchen and pantry. Materials were selected for their durability, natural beauty and connection to the region and will age well for generations.

What We Love: This inviting cottage offers its inhabitants a tranquil setting to enjoy family gathering and relaxation. Beautifully designed interior living spaces in a neutral color palette promotes a feeling of serenity. A cozy screened in porch is the perfect spot to cozy up next the fire and enjoy all four seasons. We are especially loving this home’s peaceful lakeside side and the intimate feeling provided by the surrounding woods.
