Cottages travels from coast to coast, sharing delightful examples from the Catskills of New York to Georgia's Tybee Island to Southern California and beyond. The popularity of cottage homes has continued to thrive; cottages share charming details that capture the imagination and creativity of their owners, from a built-in window seat to a front porch swing to an outdoor shower for washing sandy feet after a stroll on the beach. Whether it's a rustic mountain retreat, a sunny southern California casita or a simple seaside fishing shack, cottages are whimsical, welcoming and irresistible.

Tybee Island today is a cottage lover's delight, thanks in a large part to designer and preservationist Jane Coslick. Over the past decade, Jane has restored dozens of these simple buildings, infusing them with new life and giving them a fresh, laid-back charm. Painted with bright, cheerful colors such as rain-slicker yellow and seafoam green and furnished in a casual country chic, these cottages invite you to take a deep breath, kick off your shoes, and just relax.
