Cottage Photos – Before and After

Our 2 Bedroom Cottage has changed a lot since we bought the Northern Lights Motel in 1999 

Initially, we had a tenant in the Cottage, and when he moved out, John’s brother Steve and his wife Debbie moved in. It was wonderful to have help on the property in those early years! We couldn’t have done it without them!

In 2008, we gave John’s Dad, Jack Parker, the cottage to live in. It was awesome to have him live here for a few years. He was crazy about gardening, and always had his deck filled with plants and flowers. 


When Jack passed away in 2010, the cottage sat empty for a couple of years. But the cottage is on High Ground, and didn’t get damaged in the 2012 Flood.  In 2013, it was time to RENOVATE the Cottage. After all, we lost 12 of our 16 Rooms and desperately needed more rental units.
