There is something about stone cot-
tage designs that tugs at our heart-
strings.    Romantic and picturesque, they conjure up images of our favor-
ite childhood stories . . . particularly those with fairy tale endings!





Few,  if any,  stone cottages are more picturesque than those at  Blaise Hamlet in northwestern England. Like something out of a storybook, they epitomize the ideal of a fairy tale cottage!

As with the designs pictured above, the romantic English cottage that fol-
lows features a beautiful thatched roof.

The Gothic Revival cottage pictured below, left, is a private residence that was once a rectory.    On the right is a quaint English cottage, made even lovelier by the climbing ivy and hanging baskets of colorful flowers.

Across the Pond

Hopping  across  the  pond to North America,  we  find the period revival cottage pictured at right. Extremely popular during the 1920s and 1930s, the style is enjoying somewhat of a resurgence in popularity today.

The remaining images that follow depict stone structures that are not cur-
rently used as live-in cottages.    However,  their picturesque architecture makes them great candidates for romantic stone cottage designs!

Pictured directly below is a stone and shingle outbuilding at Skylands, a New Jersey Botanical Garden in Ringwood State Park.

The old mill pictured below is in the Black Hills of South Dakota.    It would make a great cottage for weekend getaways . . . . . or even a year-round dwelling!

The fanciful stone designs that follow would also make terrific cottages! Lo-
cated on  Heart Island  in  the  Thou-
sand  Islands,  Alexandria  Bay,   New
York (near the U.S./Canadian border), they are part of the Boldt Castle fam-
ily  compound,  begun  in 1900 by ho-
telier George C. Boldt.     Pictured  at
right is the "Hennery," or Dovecote -- the  first  structure to be built on the island.





The structure pictured below with multiple towers and turrets is the original Power House.     It was built to house a generator to supply the island with power,  but  now  is more of a museum that shows how electric power was obtained in the early 1900s.

The stunning Alster Tower,  pictured  below,  is often referred to as the Playhouse.     According to the official Boldt Castle website,  "Its design suggests a defense tower similar to those on the Alster River in Germany. This building was intended for the entertainment of guests.     The 'Shell Room'  was  to  be  used  for dancing and was so named because of the
shape of the roof.     The basement housed a bowling alley and plans for
the upper floors contained a billiard room,  library,  bedrooms,  cafe,  grill
and kitchen.  The Playhouse was closed for many years due to the dete-
rioration of the edifice,  but since extensive renovations,  is now open to visitors."
