What Houzz contributors are saying:
Restorations keep the cottages simple, clean and bright. "We want our guests to come home from a day of adventure to what feels like their own place," Sooley says. "What's better than coming home to a 100-year-old house with an ocean view?" You'll notice daybeds tucked here and there in unexpected places throughout these three-bedroom homes. At one point, 20 people lived in this home, so design moves like this help fit in a few more guests and serve as a reminder of the home's history. "Daybeds in the kitchen were common throughout the outports," Sooley says. "As kids, we used to fight over who got to sleep on the daybed in the kitchen."
