Rose Cottage is MOVING!!!......

So we've been looking for what feels like forever and had made an offer on a lovely foreclosed 1909 Victorian farmhouse not as a joke, but never thinking we had a chance. We had always admired the house and it's one of the most preserved historical homes in town. It was a redone as a Bed and Breakfast about two years ago, so many of the major things have been updated. A couple weeks later after making our first offer our Realtor let us know we were in the top three, but the bank wanted to change the funding. So we submitted another offer, praying we'd have a chance. Well, God is more than good!!! Got word it's sale pending for us and we signed papers Saturday! :) The first order of business is redoing the front yard.

I found some pictures of when it was a bed and breakfast.... so lovely! I know the former owner and she put a lot into the house. We hope to bring it back to its former glory and then some.

Thank you!! Yes, it may take a bit, but we're planning to work room by room. It looks big, but feels cozy so that's really nice.
