The cottage is Quarterdeck Resort’s premier lakeside rental, with more than 3,000 square feet of living space, 5 bedrooms, and 4.5 baths.
The expansive main level, awash in natural sunlight, features an open layout with plenty of space for entertaining. The light, bright, and airy kitchen includes a mix of natural elements and stainless-steel appliances in a modern color palette of grey, white, and brown. A dramatic chandelier over the dining room table pays homage to maritime history.
The upstairs, too, is infused with Nantucket-style cottage elements. Luxurious Beautyrest beds are dressed in nautical shades of navy and white, beach-inspired paintings create a casual vibe, and in one room—the headboard is made of varying distressed and stained decorative boat oars, adding a playful touch to the space.
When in the mood for entertaining, the lower level features a spacious family room with ample seating for foosball, games, and movies. A screened porch overlooks the sandy beach, just steps away. This cottage isn’t just another pretty house on the lake–it’s a testament to the talents of the community. A local designer brought the vision to life, many of the intricate furniture pieces were built in the Pequot Lakes area, and Brainerd-based builders Hy-Tec Construction made the cottage a reality with superior craftsmanship, high-quality materials, and impeccable attention to detail.
