This historic camp building was renovated as guest quarters for an existing waterfront house. The original camp consisted of two bedrooms, a small porch and a tiny bathroom. The renovation has one bedroom and a small living room with views of the stone fireplace. The porch was relocated to take advantage of the newly landscaped space between the camp and the lake as well as the new Adirondack-style pavilion.
Judges said: Previously this was a small, outdated yet endearing guest cabin. This renovation kept the integrity and historic character of the original camp while not overdoing the design. New expanded and functional spaces were thoughtfully created. New materials were sensitively integrated with old, while providing small twists of fresh contemporary accents that improved the renovated feel of the cabin.
