Quaint 3 Bedroom, 2-Story Cottage Ideal for Lake Setting (Floor Plan)

Photo collage of Quaint 3 Bedroom, 2-Story cottage.

Here’s a cottage home style if I ever did see one. I like this house, the floor plan and rendered interior more every time I check it out.  It’s not a surprise this is one of the more popular featured house plans on this site.

Specifications:

  • Sq. Ft.: 1,876
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Bathrooms: 2

Open concept design

As you can see from the layout below, this is a classic open-concept design with master suite on the main floor.  Open concept is probably the best layout option for smaller houses because you maximize usable space.  You don’t end up with tiny rooms which is nice.  For 1,876 sq ft. there’s a good number of bedrooms and bathrooms.  Another nice feature, which is uncommon with smaller floor plans is the two-story living room area which can be viewed from the second floor indicated on the second floor layout below as “Open to below”.

The second level floor plan has a couple of large bedrooms, a large bathroom and the large open balcony that takes up about a quarter of the second level.

With the primary suite on the main floor, this cottage could work for people with mobility issues but still accommodate more folks with the two bedrooms upstairs.

Other than the primary suite and bathroom, the main floor is open concept. It leads out onto a rear deck. Just as nice is the fact that part of the upper floor is open to below which provides for a soaring ceiling above the living room area.

While this is a cottage, it’s sizeable coming in just over 1,800 sq. ft. As you can see from the photos above, the rooms are generous. The kitchen is beautiful. The living is done up in a handsome contemporary design with sufficient space for the entire family.

While simple house, it evokes charm and comfort while looking good. It’s the ideal vacation cottage.
