Ash Tree Cottage is 97 years old. It's charming, but it's also quirky as well. The floors creak, there is a mix of old cabinets in the kitchen and somewhat newer maple ones. There must have been an old wood burning stove in the kitchen as the old stove pipe remains.
Last night we were at a party at our neighbor's house. They have a historic victorian as well. It has all of it's own quirks. What we decided is that we love our old cottages, despite the creaking floors, small closets, little nooks, crannies and plaster walls. They are comfy like an old pair of beloved slippers.
