Summertime Cottages

It's getting that time to start thinking about summer vacation.. We go every year to my girlfriends home in Michigan. The little town that she lives in is just like May Berry, it's so peaceful and beautiful, it still has that small home town feel. She has a beautiful 100 year old farm house that sits on the Grand River, it has a big front porch with a swing and rockers, and she fills it with ferns and flowers in the summer, it's so pretty. The streets are lined with maple trees and sidewalks, kids playing dodge ball in the street, neighbors stopping by to chat, I'm telling you it's Mayberry!! Well a couple of years ago they bought a cottage on a small lake north of them, and it's a little piece of heaven.. We get out on the pontoon in the evening and ride around the lake and it's just so peaceful and relaxing, and the night sky is filled with stars. We can't wait to go back this year!

Here are some pictures of some beautiful cottages inside and out. Something to take a look at as you think about your summer vacation.... Enjoy!

Have a great Day~





I love the rustic walls in this attic room with the touch of robins egg blue. Looks like a great place to relax..


Isn't this a great little cabin tucked away in the woods...



Ok, I want this bedroom... I love the stone wall with the arch window, the big wood beams... It has such a romantic feel to it, I just love everything about it!


Great antique door leading into this cottage with the vine wrapping over the door!


What a pretty cottage porch with the white wicker, love the wicker hanging basket with the colorful flowers. Look at the way the wisteria hangs over the side of the rail, and it has the most intoxicating smell...



These are great beach colors.. Not a great beach though...


What a sweet little cottage this is. Love the bright red accent color!


Isn't this a beautiful old stone cottage, look how beautiful the light cast on the stone is. I bet it's cozy on the inside...


I love this entry way door, with the vine and it's yellow leaves running along the white wall. Love the rustic pot and chair that sit outside... Wonder what's behind that door?


This is such a cheery cottage with it's bright yellow accents.
