Here’s a sweet summertime cottage on Chappaquiddick Island near Edgartown, Massachusetts.

If you haven’t fallen in love with the exterior – complete with “Rapunzel tower” – well, have a look inside…

It’s cozy, it’s playful, it’s classy and vintage – all at the same time.

Although the house isn’t actually that old (built in 1973), the support post & beams give it that aged Massachusetts cottage feel.

This 1,798 square foot home actually has five bedrooms, so it would be perfect for large family gatherings.

The decor throughout is bang-on summer cottage charm.

Disclosure: House Crazy Sarah’s favorite colors are green, blue and purple, so I’m completely enamored with the whole house color scheme.

On the roof of the sunroom, there’s a great deck with tons of space to lounge or enjoy a glass of tea…

Although this Chappy cottage isn’t on the water, it is very near a couple of beaches on the famous Island. Actually it is only an island some of the time.

Chappaquiddick technically isn’t an island because it is connected to Martha’s Vineyard with a narrow barrier beach. So most of the time it is a peninsula. But occasionally breaches of the barrier beach happen when strong storms blow through. At those times, Chappaquiddick is in fact, an island.

So now you know.

Have a good weekend!
