Look mighty big to be cottages.

More like bed and breakfasts. Looks like a very pleasant place to be in a pleasant time.

"Cottages"

I always assumed cottages to be small simple houses, typically near a lake or beach. Several years ago, I was a guest for a week at a cottage on Lake Michigan. It was like these, 6 bedrooms, large kitchen and dining room and great room. Built about 1903. However, the bathrooms were rather skimpy.
