When the weather gets warmer, getting away with a trip to the summer cottage is the perfect way to pass a warm afternoon. Whether you're cooking in the great outdoors, lounging by the lake or participating in some water sports, it's all about being able to soak up nature, good company and the beauty of the surroundings.
These cottage designs include everything from ultra modern and expansive summer dwellings to the uber compact and eco-friendly. Although a lot of these designs retain a rectangular shape that helps the houses hide within the tall trees, one exceptional design is the McBride Charles Ryan Cloud House, which features a distinct-cloud like shape—it's unusual, but still nature-inspired and just as cozy as plenty of other traditional cottage designs.
