Relaxing Cottage Guest Rooms You’ll Want To Be Invited To
Design editor Lauren Petroff shares beautiful cottage guest rooms from House & Home.
There’s nothing that exudes summer living quite like spending time at the cottage. Whether it’s your own family space or you’re visiting friends, the best thing about escaping to the country is sharing the experience with loved ones — and that calls for ample sleeping space so guests feel extra welcome. From luxurious guest bedrooms to cozy quarters filled with bunk beds, let me take you through my favourite cottage guest rooms from the pages of House & Home.
While we often gravitate towards white at House & Home, the layers of natural wood tones is welcome in this space. It creates such a cozy retreat, and with the window wide open, it would be the perfect spot to curl up with a book.
This guest room located in a southern Ontario cottage is also wood on wood. Yet thanks to the smooth simplicity of the grain in the wall panelling and the furniture’s angular edges, the room has a cool, contemporary feel.
This guest bunkie is only 10′ x 10’ so designer Yousseff Hasbani smarty chose windows that swing up. This detail helps save space, allows ample amounts of fresh air to pour in and offers that classic cottage feel.
This kid-friendly bunk room has a row of built-ins that can house six! Not only do they save space, but they’d make for a super fun sleepover.
Talk about a room with a view. The classic white elements and airy layers in this Muskoka bedroom are accented with natural fibers and graphic black-framed windows. The addition of the built-in bench topped with plush pillows would make it hard to leave the room at all!
Another guest room tucked away in this cottage’s boathouse has built-in captain beds. Made of both a double and single bed, they cleverly maximize the sleeping capacity and comfort.
This airy space in the Laurentians is full of character. The guest room/kids’ hideaway is tucked away in the highest portion of the cottage, really maxing out the cabin’s square footage.
With a decidedly Scandinavian flare, this cottage guest room is outfitted with white walls, pale wood and simple striped Marimekko bedding. It offers a crisp and serene location to tuck into on weekends outside of the city.
In this Muskoka guest room, designer Cameron MacNeil created a fun and playful space by introducing loads of color as well as sophisticated and feminine accents.
