Lake Erie Cottage

An interior and exterior renovation and addition to a quaint 1920s lakeside cottage.

Lake Erie’s long tail-like form provides the impetus for its name, derived from erielhonan, the Iroquoian word for “long tail”.   Essentially a divot formed from a moving glacier, the lake is relatively young, at around 4,000 years old, in its current configuration.  The lake is the shallowest of the Great Lakes and as such freezes over the most (average depth of 62′).
