68th 2017 Annual Cottage Tour
The Rehoboth Art League will hold the 68th Annual Cottage Tour of Art on July 11 and July 12, 2017. The Cottage Tour Committee has worked for several months to present this year’s very distinctive selection of homes in the Rehoboth Beach area. The homes on this year’s two-day self-paced tour have very different landscapes, interior and architectural designs, ranging from historically significant to contemporary and eco-friendly. Some homes have quite an evolving history and many homeowners showcase memories and collections in creative ways.
The Art League Historic Peter Marsh Homestead will be transformed with furnishings and décor by the tour underwriter J. Conn Scott. Richard Scott and Lisa Scott will blend modern furnishings and decorations to compliment the historical design in the three main rooms of the Homestead. In previous years, this has ranged from a white, slipcovered cottage look to a more colorful red and turquoise theme and last year included outdoor dining with elaborate table-scapes. They love making each year’s presentation a special surprise.
HOMES ON THE 2017 TOUR
Houses on the Cottage Tour are located in the Rehoboth Beach area. The tour is self-paced and transportation on the Jolly Trolley to each location is provided by the Art League. The Tour’s ticket and program book features original artwork of each home and includes addresses, home descriptions, and driving instructions. Please check back as we add information about each home on the tour.
Tickets go on sale late June, and you’ll want to purchase tickets early so you won’t miss the magic showcased at each home. The ticket for the tour is a commemorative program booklet with an image and description of each home on the tour. Tickets are $35 per person. This tour is for ages 13 and older.
Tickets are annually available for purchase at the following locations:
Tickets for the tour are also available the day of the tour at any of the homes based on availability and at the Rehoboth Art League.
This year parking is very limited at several of the house locations. Free parking will be available at the Rehoboth Elementary School parking lot located at 500 Stockley Street, Rehoboth Beach (see map). The Art League is providing Jolly Trolley transportation from the Rehoboth Elementary School for Cottage Tour ticket holders. Shuttle service will begin running at 9:45 AM and continue until tour ending each day.
