We love the look of shingled houses. With the dark trim, as with the house in the Hudson Valley, a shingled house can take on a cabin feel, or with white-washed trim and a worn grey tint, as with the Cape house below, it feels perfectly coastal.

This shingled farmhouse, built in 1865, retains much of the original details. Check out the amazing wood plank bedroom door. While the house only has one bathroom, it’s the size of a bedroom itself! I love the large, well kept barn too.

This beautiful 1875 Queen Anne Victorian would make for the perfect getaway nestled right near the beach at the outermost tip of Cape Cod. There’s even a private gazebo with views of koi pond and the surrounding Asian gardens. There’s even an open front porch for enjoying breakfast outside while watching the waves roll by on Cape Cod Bay.
