What Houzz contributors are saying:

The kitchen includes an antique butcher block table, sconces from an early 1900s Wisconsin cabin and vintage copper pâté molds from France on the wall.
Vanessa Brunner added this to 25 Most Bookmarked Houzz Tours of 2012
9. Fairy Tale Gatehouse in MinnesotaAt first glance this home looks more like a set from Hansel and Gretel than a guesthouse in Minnesota. Houzzers loved the inspiration the designer took from cottages in France and England, integrating old-world materials and styles into a timeless and fresh-feeling home.
