Bill Penn, the present owner and proprietor of Maple Leaf Cottage, bought the farmhouse in 1977 and has spent the intervening years restoring and renovating the building and grounds to what you see today. Some liberties have been taken in the restoration by incorporating modern amenities but the basic structure remains as it was built in 1825.
