Cottage Tour

The Rehoboth Art League will hold the 71st Annual Cottage Tour on July 7 and July 8, 2020. The Cottage Tour Committee is now working to present this year’s very distinctive selection of homes in the Rehoboth Beach area. 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 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 first floor of the Homestead. In previous years, this has ranged from a white, slipcovered cottage look to a more colorful turquoise theme, and has some years included outdoor dining arrangements with elaborate table-scapes. Each year’s Homestead presentation is a special surprise.

We are pleased to share with you this year’s amazing selection of homes for the Cottage Tour.
