My name is Cindy Montgomery the owner of the Slate Path Cottage. I am a California girl - born and raised and grew up in a very tight knit family. I was raised with outdoor living in mind, lots of fishing, hiking, camping and boating. The appreciation for this type of living is ingrained in me. I currently live in Wayzata, Minnesota where I own and operate two design companies. I also own and operate two design companies in La Jolla, and San Diego, California.
When I first met "Bayfield" I could not believe there was a place that existed like this. Living all over the world, Bayfield, in my opinion is very similar to a little European village or a Cape Cod type atmosphere. I fell immediately in love with this town!! I originally purchased a Lake Lot on Lake Superior and then the cottage. The original intent was to design the home to live while getting a set of plans ready to build the lake property. As I continued to put time, money and effort into the "Lake Lot" I decided I really liked living "in town" - so, I sold the lake lot and kept the "in-town" cottage. It took me a full day to decide what to name it. Since I placed each slate stone myself to make the walkways, I believed it to be the perfect name. Slate Path Cottage.
One of my favorite things is going to Bayfield in the Spring, listening to the fog horns at night, is absolutely the most wonderful, calming sensation. All seasons have their advantage in this enchanting destination. I hope you will join me as a big fan of Bayfield and make my cottage your own and create special memories to enjoy as I have. The best, Cindy
