Greenridge Cottage

Name : Greenridge Cottage

Location : South Hill

Built in : 1920

Origin of its name

Its original name was “Outlook” and it was owned by Doctor Donkers. Not sure if their family was the original owner. We assumed that the original name came from either an Outlook, meaning a view from the top of the hill, or an Outlook as in a state of mind. After 20 years or so, we renamed the cottage “Greenridge Cottage” for its position on a wooded trail at the top of a lushy green ridge.

Special attributes

The pictures show the evolution of the house from the purchase date from Dr. Donkers ($3,600) in 1947 through improvements in 1950 and a complete renovation and winterization in 1968. More improvements were made in 1980 and finally a huge addition in 1985 to prepare the cottage for the adoption of our three children in the same year.

In 1968, we rebuilt the cottage reusing only the “bones” of the house to winterize it and turn it into a year round retreat. Our family cherished our Thanksgiving and Christmas time here enjoying skiing, cross country skiing and even ice boating in a place, we had never seen before in the winter. To this day, Greenridge Cottage is the center of holiday activities in our family. built in : Over 100 years ago
