Beautiful Waterfront Cottage

Text by Ann Zimmerman | Photography by Scot Zimmerman

When your waterfront cottage has the dock literally in your own backyard, there is really no excuse for staying inside.

The outdoor living area for this cheery green clapboard home stretches from the sliding doors to the edge of the dock, and there is far more living space outside than in for this New Jersey beach cottage at the edge of the Atlantic. Both covered and uncovered, the many choices for dining and seating provide friendly hospitality to family members and guests from the first pot of morning coffee until the stars come out at night.
