About Bill Hardy
The photo is of my sister April, mom, brother Jeff and me. Mom and dad purchased the property, long ago and an overgrown farm land, from the Plummer family and then the additional land out back up to Beauty Hill Road. You can still see the stone walls. They did hard work clearing the many bushes, some of them old blueberry bushes, and made a path to the water front. That year we ate lunches on a flat-topped granite rock. Over the next year the front was finally cleared, with dad keeping many maple and pines. Then they had the cottage built in '63 when my sister was only two. Basically a shell with exposed 2x4 framing with hung blankets and exposed rafters...and a sheet metal fireplace...and an old used frig that made this weird gaa-lump sound at night...no water, no completed bathroom... only an outhouse. It was magical! We lived there during summers. Slowly more finishing touches were made and eventually we had running dug well water, a bathroom (used to be my baby sister's bedroom) and finished walls and ceilings. One day mom got a call from the people who owned the property next to us on the south side, the Broom family. They wanted to sell the land and mom had been given first-refusal a few years prior. Mom immediately accepted and was able to find a way to swing family finances, which was tight to begin with. The land you drive down nearing the lake and to park is that property. The porch addtion made of rough-cut wood and beam was added around 1974 and eventually stained or painted. Our granite rock that used to serve as our lunch seat is now underneath it. The design is to give the maximum view without obstruction. Screened panels replaced simple screening to make replacement easier. And the steps were a great improvement over the original cottage's steep steps. We hope you appreciate the cottage, the property, the trees and the wildlife. It is our greatest love to enjoy it with our family and we are happy to be able to have you and your's enjoy it too!
