Julie wirtes of the cottage:
    Our is still the original 1884 Queen Anne on the lakeside half, but the back half was constructed in the 1960s by Rodney Todd (young local architect) and so it's very different, mid-century modern style. The old boathouse that had been pulled here by ox cart to add an indoor kitchen to the house sat right on the ground and had been eaten away by termites….. I was about 15 when the new part was added. Just had to replace most of the exterior siding. Our fear is that anyone would tear the house down in a minute - yet the gable in front (by the lake) always had the fish with a fork symbols that must have come from the old Halcyon Boat Club! We still have the fish - in need of repair to one fork! I never knew their origin until I saw the pics you posted of the Ball Cottage. We are 2 doors down. The one house between ours and the Balls used to the Sarbers (then was Lou and Mary Stone, whom I remember so well).
