Sadly, our box elder tree had to come down. We originally joked about her being a weed, but when she became home to box elder bugs this year, we were able to identify her. Her roots were pulling up the sidewalk plus growing under the cottage's foundation, so we had no choice. We will miss her shade next summer and her welcoming stance.
Welcome to Sweetbrier Cottage! You might say that Sweetbrier Cottage is a metaphor for all the good things in life. It’s relaxing atmosphere, warm colors, antiques and collectibles invite you to sit down, have a cup of tea and enjoy a good book or conversation.
With life's stresses, it’s important to have a place, that “special retreat,” to rest and gather your thoughts. Retreats come in many forms – a room, a porch, a garden or even a garage. If you don’t already have a retreat, create one! It only takes a few special touches to make that room or porch your special place. The cottage’s hosts look forward to your visits.
