Leafy Enclave: 1906

Leafy Enclave: 1906

1906. "Cottages at Harbor Springs, Michigan." The resort community in its early years. 8x10 inch glass negative, Detroit Publishing Company. View full size.

 

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.
