Ideal Vacation Getaway Cottage

Ideal Vacation Getaway Cottage

Nothing says “cozy” and “quaint” like a cottage. Even the word “cottage” conjures up something compact, sweet, warm, and inviting. This particular plan set is perfect for spring and summer vacations, or for weekend getaways from the fast pace life of the city. A cottage asks that you relax and renew yourself, curl up with a good book, and  star gaze on your large covered porch. There is plenty of space for friends and family to be entertained, and spend the night.

Even with all the visions that get conjured up when you say “cottage”, this cottage is remarkably versatile and the decorating of the interior could be modern, traditional, or rustic. If you want a beautiful retreat from hectic life this cottage home is just for you. Having a second home for vacations and getaways can also be very cost-effective as with this sweet cottage, and not just for the financially privileged.
