About the DeFlorin Brick Cottage Inn

THE DEPRESSION’S END AND THE BEGINNING OF ALLY ASSISTANCE

The home was built in a rare building period. During 1940, the Midwest was still feeling the Great Depression’s financial sting. Meanwhile the ramp up for European ally theatre products had started. As a result, the United States experienced few newly constructed homes during DeFlorin’s inaugural year.

THE BRICK COTTAGE AND ITS ORIGINAL INTERIOR FEATURES

By stepping inside the home’s original wood flooring you have already missed an important feature seen in mid 1900s homes. Yes, it’s the vintage postman’s mail slot that is still used today. When coming inside, notice that we have kept DeFlorin’s entire wood flooring intact both on the main level and in the loft. The stone fireplace is vintage DeFlorin as are the glass door knobs, interior doors, coved ceilings, plaster walls, and, yes, the built in telephone counter is too.

THE BRICK COTTAGE AND ITS NEW FEATURES

During the home’s 2012 complete renovation and for your enjoyment, we have added some key features that you will love. First, who in your group gets the Loft’s view, spaciousness, and queen sized bed? Enjoy some time, barbeque, or look at the stars with your group on the new deck as well. We added a lower level door, a fridge, and supplies right off the deck for quick access to your beverages and meats. A newly constructed covered front porch and new landscaping were just completed too. Your group will enjoy our finished product!
