BIG RIDEAU LAKE COTTAGE

Set high above the lake, this cottage expands all views toward the water. The main living quarters opens up to a screen porch and large patio overlooking the lake. A bed and bath wing extends north, the spare bedroom acts a buffer for privacy of the master suite. The garage and entry hall create a covered walkway and threshold between the short driveway and main living quarters. A loft extends up from the middle of the main floor, and expands out to a roof deck for panoramic views.
