Due to ongoing health and safety concerns, the Rehoboth Art League has made the difficult decision to postpone the 71st Annual Cottage Tour until July 13 & 14, 2021. The Cottage Tour Committee has worked tirelessly to vet and secure a very special selection of homes in the Rehoboth Beach area, and we look forward to presenting a full Tour in 2021. The homes on this event’s two-day self-paced tour always 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, artwork, and collections in creative ways. The Art League’s Historic Peter Marsh Homestead will again be featured on the Tour, with the building’s collection of antique furniture and collectibles housed amidst innovative artwork.

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 (appropriate for ages 13 and above). Tickets for the 2021 Cottage Tour will available in coming months.
Parking is very limited at several of the house locations for our 2021 Cottage Tour. We recommend carpooling with friends to reduce the amount of traffic for neighborhoods with a Tour home on the route.
The Cottage Tour would not be possible without the devoted partnership of several local nonprofit organizations, who coordinate volunteer teams to assist with staffing the houses during this event and providing patrons with detailed information about the art and architecture embodied at each location. We thank our partner organizations that will make our 71st Annual Cottage Tour possible.
We are grateful to this year’s Cottage Tour sponsors:
