Seth Peterson Cottage Site Plan

Post by JohnAdams »

I have become absolutely fascinated with this cottage. Does anyone have a site plan or at least know the orientation of the house? I cannot see on Google Maps as it will not zoom in with current data and I cannot find on net. Thanks.

The entrance is on the south facade.

Here's the cottage layout. The window wall at the top of the image faces southwest.

Does this plan show two large tables in this cottage?

If by that you mean the 5-seater for dining and the 4-seater in the living area, here's a shot that shows both ...

So the "patio" is facing the river sort of in a north westerly direction as seen on this map?

I would agree with that. We were there in the summer, so the trees prevented a sight line to the river. Maybe in the winter it would be more visible. There was a considerable drop off to the river and I remember wooden steps down to a dock.

What is the reason for two tables?

The first table is just inside the front entry way and next to the kitchen. I believe, but do not remember, that it is secured to the wall and can not be moved. I could be wrong.

The far table allows for a great view of the fireplace. Perfect for evening meals. Again, I believe that this table can be moved or situated closer to the fireplace.

Here is their website if anyone is interested. Looks like you have to book well in advance if you want to stay there.

We were in the area last year, but I didn't try to find it. I think it is only open one Sunday a month for tours. I suggest if you are in the area, to eat at the Ishnala Supper Club. Hard to find, but well worth it. I think it is about 12 miles from the Seth Peterson cottage.

The Fields at the Wilderness is an architecturally very interesting restaurant designed by apprentice James Dresser: http://www.fieldsatthewilderness.com that is only 5 miles away: http://goo.gl/maps/DKiwt

Actually Ishnala is very close to The Fields at the Wilderness. I can't seem to get Google Maps to cooperate right now, and couldn't copy the link from Google. Ishnala's address is 52011 Ishnala Rd., Wisconsin Dells, WI 53965
