What’s better than an adorable vintage cottage behind a picket fence? How about three of them side-by-side!
Welcome to Cottage Bend Vacations Rentals – three historic vacation cottages all located on one corner on the west side of Bend, Oregon. You can rent one, or rent them all!
Each of the three cuties has been stylishly renovated. Have a look!
It’s off the market now, but this little gem was on for sale as recently as this summer for $1,199,000.
Sure it has a stellar location in Montecito, California with over and acre of property. And it even has a historic pedigree – being hand-built and originally owned by members of the Bohemian Mountain Drive Artist Colony. But $1.2 million for a brick hut?
Heck ya, look at this sweet thing!
One more little cabin for all you tiny house lovers out there.
Blue Moon Rising is actually a vacation cabin rental business in Deep Creek Lake, Maryland. Their specialty is cabins built from recycled, vintage and eco-friendly materials. Several cabins are located on the lakeside lot but this cutie caught my eye – her name is “Kaya”.
“Kaya” has the whole Blue Moon theme going inside and out, starting with that crescent curve over the porch.
The interior is just as blue-moon-y. There’s no other way to describe it.
Walls, floor, ceiling, doors, and windows are derived from old house and barn parts.
Another project by David and Heather!
My Canadian house-loving friends in Nova Scotia have been busy little bees over the past few years. I’ve featured their work before here on House Crazy with their converted school house and beautiful seaside home that is now for sale. Another little side project they have been working on is the ominously named X-Permit Cabin.
The X-Permit Cabin (pictured above) is located somewhere in eastern Canada with a view of the ocean.
I can’t tell you exactly where it is because I have no idea. That is classified information.
I can tell you that the code word for the location of the X-Permit Cabin is “Pirate Harbour”.
So why all the precautions for this fun tiny home?
Here’s the backstory….
The X-Permit Cabin was built on a salvaged trailer frame. It is self-sustainable, off grid, and built without permits because technically it is a “travel trailer”.
The point of all this, as David tells us, “is to circumvent onerous permits and inspections that come with ‘permanent’ structures”. He adds that the X-Permit Cabin is “an exercise in civics, construction and innovation”.
