“return to a simpler time”
Our period restored 1912 Arts and Crafts bungalow, the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast, Whitehall MI, minutes from Lake Michigan's white sand beaches, offers you quiet refined character, chocolate indulgences and personal touches that make this an experience worth repeating! The Cocoa Cottage was one of the first recipients of theWhite Lake Area Historical Society's 2004 Award for Preserving & Improving the Historical Resources of the White Lake Area. The style of our home is an Arts and Crafts Bungalow. The Arts and Crafts movement started in Great Britain around 1890 and was in reaction to the highly decorated Victorian style and the industrial revolution. The movement was primarily led by John Ruskin and William Morris. Simple lines, natural colors, fabrics and materials are hallmarks of this period. Beauty was inherent in the material used and the craftsmanship of the artist.The Arts and Crafts movement was not just a physical style, but also a philosophy of living. Simplicity was key. Co-op gardens, metal-smiths, potters and woodworkers all shared their craft.The Arts and Crafts movement evolved into Mission style which evolved into Prairie Style, which was Frank Lloyd Wrights milieu. Although closely related, these styles have unique differences. The Arts & Crafts period returns us to a time of simplicity, authenticity, and enduring style. Larry and Lisa welcome you to the Cocoa Cottage Bed and Breakfast, where you check-in as our guest and check-out as our friend!
