A benefit for the Cannon Beach History Center

cottage eight: Ulrich Cottage

from the programme: Step back into the forties at the Ulrich Cottage.  Michael and Mary Serres purchased the cottage from Frank Brallier in 1939.  The Serres built the cottage in the early 40s.  It is now owned by their three daughters.  The original interior features knotty pine from Mollala, Oregon.  The only addition is an add-on to the rear porch, enlarging the bedroom and creating an indoor shower.  The fireplace was built with rocks from Silver Point, most likely by Paul Bartels.  The family remembers the Coast Guard checking for black-out lights and curtains during WWII.  Note the black-out light on display.

We were warmly welcomed by one of the owners saying we could go in with shoes on and to feel free to take as many photos as we liked.

I peeked down the path to the back garden.

I remembered this cottage from a previous tour, mainly by large woodsy lot behind the house.

I recall you go through the bathroom and the shower room to get to the back porch.

I liked this cottage very much and appreciate how much of its original look has been preserved.

Next: two cottage gardens.
