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.
