Down a sweep of lawn and pasture, this big house looks like a collection of small houses. Greek Revival-inspired pavilions are connected by a Shingle Style link, uniting various regional traditions. The elliptical ceiling of the kitchen eating area looks like a shallow, tented canopy.
The main cabin and its outbuildings embody the simple life, with exposed studs and rafters. The outbuildings have no electricity or running water. Living in Snout House is a pure summer experience, close to nature. Simple but whimsical decorative elements add to the delight.
