It is said that ‘home is where the heart is,’ and with the holiday season fast approaching a house becomes so much more than a dwelling comprised of walls, a roof and doors. Home is a place to gather with friends and family, to share laughter and love and make memories that will last a lifetime.
Here is a collection of country retreats that offer a cozy space to gather and celebrate life’s bounty this holiday season.
The most beautiful crystal clear lake is the centerpiece of 125 acres of landscaped property, together with a wonderful shingled-style contemporary house that has lovely lake views from all the common rooms. Built by the owners with incredible attention to detail, the spacious living room features wide board floors and huge ceiling beams that were milled on the land and a large stone fireplace all of which sets the backdrop for cozy gatherings.
Located on 25 private acres, this circa 1875 vintage farmhouse was completely renovated with all the conveniences for modern day while maintaining the home’s historic country charm. Gather with friends and family in a relaxed and elegant home with wide-plank wood floors, a cozy fireplace and beautiful millwork.
