Home & Cottage Tours benefit Child & Family Services

Once again, Northern Home & Cottage walks you through some of the most forward-looking home designs in the region. Each home features local designers, contractors, architects, and more. We are so grateful to the homeowners who have so generously opened their homes for this tour that benefits Child & Family Services.

The tour is very doable in a day, but it helps to plan your route ahead of time. A complimentary copy of Northern Home & Cottage magazine, with photos and information about all the homes on the tour, is available at each home. You may start touring at any home, go to as many or as few as you like, in any order. On the day of the tour, you may purchase tickets at any of the homes. For security and privacy reasons, photography is not permitted. Of course there are photos of all the homes in your free issue of Northern Home & Cottage.
