Lakewood Cottage

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 5 January 2017 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Lakewood Cottage is a Mackinac Island retreat of late banking heiress Ann Loeb Bronfman. As is typical of this building era, the interior is ripe with dreamy architectural details such as built-ins, high ceilings, wide baseboards, arch details, half-moon windows and a huge covered front porch, perfect for lemonade afternoons and family games in the evening. With five children, 25 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren surviving her, it is no surprise the late banking heiress Ann Loeb Bronfman lived in an eight bedroom, ten bathroom mansion.

Along with magnificent views of the Straits of Mackinac, the historical resort home also features horse stables and facilities, staff quarters, a library, wine cellar, and expansive gardens.

The Straits of Mackinac can be seen from the covered front porch.

I think it's funny that this mansion is referred to as a cottage. I don't have the perspective of those with unimaginable wealth. A beautiful photo of this grand 'cottage'.
