Cairngorm Cottage

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 15 May 2017 in Architecture and Portfolio.

Cairngorm Cottage, an 8,000 square-foot Victorian-era home built in 1888, has seven bedrooms, six bathrooms and a carriage house with a two-bedroom apartment. The house is located in the historic West Bluff district, a collection of large cottages built in the late 19th century on land leased from the state. Today, this is one of many homes that remain on land that the owners lease for 20-year periods from the Mackinac Island State Park Commission, paying $3,500 to $6,000 a year.

A superb image of this house. I wonder if there is some Scottish connection with the house, Cairngorm is the name of the mountain region of the Scottish Highlands.

Victorian buildings in America are so pretty and so different to those I normally see here!

Interesting that it is considered a cottage with all of those bedrooms and bathrooms. This is in such pristine condition! A gorgeous example of a home from Victorian times.

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

beautiful building, immaculately maintained. I wonder whether the rich of that era were trying yo be humorous, or whether they were deliberately insulting the working class by calling this a cottage.
