Ingrid purchased this cabin in 1953
Why Ingrid chose North Haven Island
Our grandmother came to this island as a child, and returned when her husband retired. This cabin was the guest house, custom built to her exacting specifications, but we spent many happy summers here, and enjoy our own children in this beautiful place.
What makes this cabin unique
There's something about feeling as if you're in Europe, after just a drive and a ferry ride away. The cabin is both rustic and ornate; the carvings exquisite, the built-in furniture so well crafted and unusual, the views are beautiful, the beach combing can keep you busy for hours.
