Thank you for making our new beach house a dream come true. All the finishes, the built-in cabinetry and furniture are just wonderful. The kids bunk loft turned into one of the focal points of the home and the ladder has seen a fair amount of use! The personal service you provided during the planning process, your assistance in moving in and out of the house and the help in decorating the house have made the whole experience enjoyable. The service you provide is truly unparalleled.

Our experience with Cottage Home was terrific, with constant communication and plans laid out in great detail. We appreciated their plan to fit our home into the surrounding environment, and their sincere efforts to save any trees that they could. We truly admire their ‘green-built’ philosophy and practices.

We are absolutely pleased with our new cottage. The home is just beautiful and has far exceeded our expectations. . . It has such a comfortable feeling and I know we will have such wonderful memories there. You have really made a dream come true for our family … thank you so much for everything you have done. Everyone has been wonderful to work with and this has been one of the best experiences we have ever had!

- Mike and Anne, Plymouth, Michigan


Our experience during the design and build phases of our new home has been nothing short of excellent. Not only has the Cottage Home staff responded to all our requests and needs, but also they have anticipated features that they thought might be important to us. We truly feel as if they are building a home they would want to live in. Furthermore, our home was built on time and on budget. Had we known what we know now about Cottage Home back when first started looking at lakefront property, we wouldn’t have had any apprehension building a custom home.
