The Isakson-Love Cottage Studio measures approximately 3.5 by 4.2 metres, with double glass doors, and windows on 4 walls. A long wall provides an ideal plane for working, pinning/nailing, and display. Overhead track lighting and free-standing lights allow artists to set-up the studio space in the way that best works for them.
The Cottage also includes two decks (one facing the garden, one facing the hills), a kitchenette with a two-element electric hot plate, small baking/toasting oven, electric kettle, toaster, and refrigerator, firebox, skylight over set of bunkbeds, and outdoor shower enclosure with adjacent sauna, and separate toilet reached by a short path.

Kindling and firewood is supplied. Two bunkbeds under a skylight. Kitchenette is supplied with dishes and linens. Outdoor shower and toilet. Free Wifi is available.
