Overview

Weekends are a time when we want to relax and enjoy ourselves, and for many the weekend home serves as the focal point for life's ease and pleasure. Here, in the House Beautiful Weekend Homes, the editors of House Beautiful magazine present 35 exciting getaway houses, all conceived to celebrate the joys of weekend living.

Whether it is an elegant cottage by the sea, a rejuvenated farmhouse nestled in a rural valley or a rustic cabin in the mountains, each exhibits a unique quality of purpose and décor. Many of the houses center on the owner's particular pleasure--be it cooking, entertaining, collecting or gardening. Others involve the creation of a grand vision--a welcoming chateau, a gentleman's farmhouse, or a remarkable shed-turned-artist's studio. Small or large, antique or modern, humble or grand, all project a marvelous sense of style and intelligence.

The editors have selected the houses they feel reflect the charm and comfort people find appealing in getaway homes-each a peaceful oasis in the busy lives of its owners. For anyone dreaming of buying one, House Beautiful Weekend Homes is a sourcebook of unlimited inspiration and sheer delight.
