How can I rent a campground cottage?
|Cottages in the Campground are occupied primarily by
the owners and their families. However, some owners do rent their cottages for
a limited number of weeks. Individuals interested in renting a Campground
cottage should consult local realtors and newpapers. The MVCMA Office does not
serve as a source of information on the availability of cottages for rent.
Do the cottages stay in families for generations?
|Many of the cottages have been in families for two or
three generations, although a few have been in one family even longer.
However, each year a few do sell, and new owners move in.
Are the cottages occupied year-round?
|Only a few of the cottages are year-round
residences. As a matter of fact, most cottages are not insulated.
Where do cottage owners get the lanterns for Illumination
|The tradition is that the lanterns remain in the
cottage when it is sold to new owners. Because of the fragile quality of the
lanterns, each year a few new ones must be purchased to replace tattered ones, and these
are available at the Cottage Museum Shop on Trinity Park. Every August a
lantern painting class is offered.
Where do the cottage owners live in the off-season?
|Cottage owners come from all over the country -- from
as far away as Texas and California to nearby states in New England. The
cottages are summer gathering places where scattered families can come together each year.
