This darling cottage is located in Portland, Maine. It is actually a vacation rental so there are tons of pictures of it online.

“Bright, sunny and spotlessly clean, this fabulously-appointed beach house features delightful ocean views and a highly sought-after location. This charming, fully-renovated cottage is in the Town Landing neighborhood of Falmouth Foreside, rated ‘The most prestigious neighborhood in Maine’. Just 10 minutes to DT Portland …”

Artist Lynn Hanson’s little cottage

Published February 20, 2012 by housecrazy

One of my favorite visual artists is Lynn Hanson. I love her earthy, moody, naturalistic artwork, but I am also a huge fan of her adorable (and now famous) house in Venice, California.

A cluster of historic cottages for sale in Pennsylvania

Published February 13, 2012 by housecrazy

This 2 acre compound in eastern Pennsylvania caught my eye last week. It features three historic cottages from the 1920’s and teens. (One historic cottage is great… but three are phenomenal!)

Set in the lush woodlands near a river, these cottages are currently on the market for the 3-for-1 price of $549,000.

One of them is technically an old cabin and each one has a separate well and septic system. There is also a “natural koi pond on the property with artesian well.”

Let’s have a look:

Cute house in Little Switzerland

Published February 2, 2012 by housecrazy

The small mountain town of Ouray, Colorado [pronounced “your-ray”] is sometimes called “Little Switzerland” due to the towering snow-capped peaks that surround the quaint village.

A good friend of mine moved there after a very sad personal loss and she has been embraced both by the beauty and the community of Ouray. It truly is her “happy place”.

And I can see why. I have been through Ouray a couple of times and it is a splendid hidden gem situated far beyond the hustle and bustle of the larger front range cities of Colorado.

Have a look at this 1924 brick craftsman cottage I found in Pueblo, Colorado.
