And there’s something really special and unique about curling up with a cozy throw and a good book inside a beautiful home and watch the water go by.

This is the kind of place where we would love to do just that!

We think the best beach cottages have a little bit of history, the feeling that generation after generation has loved them and made them feel like home. A gallery wall of family photos and treasured memories adds that exact feeling to this charming spot.

As perfectly coastal as the interior of this home is, the outside is even more incredible. There’s no better place than a swing to watch the waves crash to the shore.

And a screened porch is perfect for keeping the mosquitoes at bay.
