_This message was forwarded to me and seems to answer the question about where Green Gables was located on the lake. Thanks to Barbara Korotev who supplied this information via Karen Stiles (Karen believes that GREEN GABLES was originally the Holman cottage or the one west of their place now owned by Della Huck)...
Green Gables was located west of your place, Karen, west of the Reverend Damp's place, and two doors east of what was my Aunt Irene's place. She was Irene Gill, older sister of my mother, Jane Korotev. You must have been in Green Gables many times because you and your brothers, and Dave and myself, "hung out" together every summer. And we owned Green Gables for several years until we moved to The Point. Actually, we owned Green Gables and the place up the hill from The Point. Sold them both and bought The Point in the early 60s.
My father, Dean, bought Green Gables from his uncle, Frank Korotev, in the 50s.
We were there when my brother Dave was in high school and had a driver's license. I remember that because Dave captured a porcupine and brought it back to the cottage in the trunk of Dad's car. Dave left the porcupine overnight in the garage, and, no surprise, the animal escaped by chewing a hole in the garage door. Dad was furious. Not only was the trunk of his car stuck full of porcupine quills, but the garage door was ruined and had to be replaced.
I also remember helping to plant all the evergreens that now grow between the house and the road. Dad called it 'the stolen forest' because the then tiny trees came from alongside country roads.
Incidentally, the Stanley Korotev referred to in the blog was Frank's brother. Uncle Stanley's son Jordan, also mentioned in the blog, was a long-time resident of Green Bay. His children still live there.
