Crane Island Cabin

Owned by the same families for generations, the summer cottages on Crane Island comprise a National Historic District. Located on the site of a demolished cottage, this new summer home delicately fits into the historic context, while respecting the Midwestern architectural character cherished by residents.

Designed to celebrate casual summer living, the house accommodates frequent guests, as well as spaces for retreat. The ensemble of structures on the site (including the main house, guest house, and existing water tower) provides an ideal relaxed environment for the family and their guests.
