If days or evenings turn chilly, lighting a fire in the kitchen wood stove or the living room fireplace will make Ross Cottage feel more cozy. Firewood is stored in the woodshed behind the cottage.

Water for drinking, cooking, and washing comes from a nearby spring by means of the hand-pump in the kitchen and old-fashioned elbow grease. (Guests may wish to boil, filter, or treat water before drinking.) Fabrics may be washed in water from the rain tub.
