About the Upstairs Sitting Room:

Once a designated widow's walk, Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers team transformed this unused space with the help from online voters. The home's updated oak staircase leads to the second-floor sitting room, where surrounding windows let light in from every direction and provides multiple views of the lakeside property. During the Blog Cabin's People's Choice voting period, online voters selected the coffee and tea bar, which became the inspiration for a cozy coffeehouse design approach. Custom-built shelving, a sliding bookshelf and the coffee bean backsplash creates a familiar environment for any seasoned barista.
