Cottage Court: Vintage Tourist Cabins











Dotted all along our town's fresh water beach you will find these quaint and quirky holiday structures of years gone by. I feel so sad that some of them are crumbling. In fact, I think our local politicians should vote to make them protected 'heritage buildings'; easy to move, someone could lovingly restore them like these in Wisconsin. "Talk about a labor of love. The resurrection from near-collapse of this modest one-room cottage is a perfect example of such a labor. The last remnant of a 1920s Beardstown, Illinois, “cabin court” composed of multiple tiny frame houses just like it, it is a relic of an era when middle Americans vacationed by giddily road-trippin’ with their new automobiles." - Chicago Home + Garden. Go here and enjoy the interior styling and details of this beauty.

Wow. This is the first thing I've seen that has made me homesick since I've moved to Delaware. I am in love with these.
