This 100-year-old renovated cottage in New Market, Ala., is located on a property called The Winchester Manor. The 400-square-foot cottage is used as a bed and breakfast and is available for vacation rental through Airbnb. The charming house may have originally been built as servant quarters.
The layout is a one-bedroom open space with a breakfast nook, kitchenette and bathroom. Its most striking feature is the herringbone antique brick floors. The cottage was recently named by MSN.com as the cutest tiny house in Alabama. Check out a full tour of the Winchester Cottage below.
The cottage is relaxing with eclectic decor. Soothing blue walls and white trim create a blank canvas for the furnishings.
The crisp white bedding creates a tranquil atmosphere while the pillows and glass bottles provide fun pops of color.
The hallway area works as a dining space and the perfect spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee before heading out to the nearby local shops and restaurants.
Two pendant fixtures light the space, and an antique window pane serves as unique wall decor.
The remodeled bathroom features a tile surround and a relaxing Jacuzzi tub. Two shower curtains as opposed to one, create a curtain-like look and soften the shower tub area.
Guests using Airbnb have reported the cottage is much more spacious than they expected. Tall ceilings and plenty of natural light help the home feel airy and open.
The kitchenette is tiny but functional, fitting perfectly in this nook by the entry. It's perfect for preparing a snack or cup of coffee.
