142. Theme 149 ~House/Home~

I came upon this cute stone cottage while looking for foliage to photograph.  It’s actually on a large estate that is now used as a retreat for a religious group.  Maybe it was the carriage house or a guest cottage?  I don’t know but from the looks of the door, it hasn’t been used in awhile, unless they use the back door to enter.  One of my favorite old movies is The Enchanted Cottage (1945, Dorothy McGuire & Robert Young)….I think that may have  been made of stone as well.  The story is magical, uplifting and just all-around wonderful!  Check it out if you’re a fan of old b & w films.
