Here’s a sweet summertime cottage on Chappaquiddick Island near Edgartown, Massachusetts.

If you haven’t fallen in love with the exterior – complete with “Rapunzel tower” – well, have a look inside…

It’s cozy, it’s playful, it’s classy and vintage – all at the same time.

Although the house isn’t actually that old (built in 1973), the support post & beams give it that aged Massachusetts cottage feel.

This 1,798 square foot home actually has five bedrooms, so it would be perfect for large family gatherings.

Disclosure: House Crazy Sarah’s favorite colors are green, blue and purple, so I’m completely enamored with the whole house color scheme.

On the roof of the sunroom, there’s a great deck with tons of space to lounge or enjoy a glass of tea…

Although this Chappy cottage isn’t on the water, it is very near a couple of beaches on the famous Island. Actually it is only an island some of the time.

Chappaquiddick technically isn’t an island because it is connected to Martha’s Vineyard with a narrow barrier beach. So most of the time it is a peninsula. But occasionally breaches of the barrier beach happen when strong storms blow through. At those times, Chappaquiddick is in fact, an island.

So now you know.

Have a good weekend!

Located near Millersburg, Ohio, this sweet cottage is a mere 450 square feet. But it looks so much bigger in the pictures…. maybe it’s because the homeowners follow, nay, embody the philosophy of “Live small to have it all!”

The Little Cottage on Maple Avenue

My friend Canadian artist David Lacey and his wife Heather Stephens like to tackle house projects in their spare time. They are probably laughing boisterously as they read this because they have so many “project” houses, that they have no spare time. David and Heather are also responsible for the X-permit Cabin, The Remodeled School House, and their own home, A Seaside Retreat.

Their latest adventure is 43 Maple Avenue in beautiful Wolfville, Nova Scotia. They bought it as an investment to rent but it needed some work.
