Project: Hovland Lake Cottage

Set on a rugged rock outcropping of Lake Superior, this lake cottage has three levels. The base level houses the third bedroom with lake view, laundry and double garage and has a spiraling wood staircase leading to the main level. The main level opens to a panoramic view of Lake Superior from kitchen, dining, living, library, fireplace, entry and screen porch. The formal entry on the main level can also be reached from a landscaped walkway built into the rock outcroppings. The second bedroom and bath are also on the main level. The top level is master bedroom and bath, office, fireplace and covered deck. This house takes full advantage of the lake view.
