Details like double-hung, cottage-style windows, a wood front door, a false gable off the steeper roof slope, and an airy screened porch give this getaway plenty of character. Inside, a fireplace keeps the main level’s living area and the upper level’s master bedroom feeling cozy. And a bunk room lets you tuck in extra guests. The plan’s efficient size makes it ideal for a small lakefront or woodland lot.

Bedrooms: 1 + bunkroom
Main level: 552 sq. ft.
Upper level: 486 sq. ft.
Total square feet: 1,038 sq. ft.
