Cottage Floor Plan


The Cottage floor plan includes the Founding Faculty Foyer, the casual Yahnis Hospitality Suite featuring a bar and grill, the large Hendrick Room which accommodates approximately 60 people for a seated dinner or conference, a smaller meeting/dining room that seats 12 people, the Powell Library, and two guest bedrooms with private baths – the Pepsi Guest Suite and a yet unnamed guest suite.  The Cottage has hardwood floors throughout and features several furnishings, light fixtures and decorative accessories from the estate of Joan Gladstone, a longtime university benefactor.

The front entranceway to The Cottage can be accessed from the main campus through the Ashpy Lowrimore Memorial Garden.  The brick walkway leading to the Southern-style screened wraparound porch features engraved bricks purchased by donors.  The front porch is furnished with old-fashioned rockers.  For outdoor receptions, the back porch opens onto a large bricked patio with fountain, a garden area featuring native flowers and greenery and a spacious landscaped lawn.  The Cottage is equipped with a ramp and is accessible to individuals with disabilities.
