House Tour: New Cottage with Vintage Style
Enjoying the outdoors
For all the charms inside the 3,200-square-foot house, Mother Nature lures the family and guests outside for swimming in Green Bay, walking a mile into town for ice cream, roasting marshmallows at the fire pit the Mathers' sons built with stones from the shore or enjoying the gorgeous view from the back porch (pictured).
Wicker porch furniture, repainted several times, is more than 100 years old and came from Andy's parents' cottage. "We live out on the porch," says Melissa. "The water, the breeze—it's spectacular!"
