I like to think of myself as the grammar princess, so wish granted!  🙂  To help with confusion, your best bet is to word it as “the bride’s grandparents’ cottage.”  You could use a last name, but just labeling without names works too.  

Hope this helps!

Can you just list the address?

I like Ms. Library’s suggestion or the bride’s family’s cottage. But I think I like “grandparents'” better.

Or I would just call it The Smith Cottage.  I don’t know if it’s just me, but I think who’s cottage it is is irrelevant.  Just give it a name like it’s a venue.  That’s what we’re doing!  We’re getting married at an estate of a family friend.  We will be the first wedding there (plus they live there) so it’s not like it’s a wedding venue with a name.  On the invite we just wrote “The Jones Estate” and the address below it (which I guess wouldn’t apply to you)

Maybe you can put “Smith Family Cottage” on the invite and explain who the Smith Family is on your direction card.

@epsee if his family knows the grandparents and the general location, wouldn’t they know who’s cottage it is?  If all else fails, I like @iswimibikeirun’s idea about explaining it on the directions.
