One of the best things about summer drives, whether you are day-tripping or on a longer vacation road trip, are the gorgeous country houses you see on the way. And I have to admit, sad to say since I am a Canadian, but the US has the best small town and country houses. There are rarely houses so pretty as those found in Small Town U.S.A., even the ones not yet restored. Above is one of my favourites, Monkey Cottage (I’ll admit, someone naming a cottage at home I would roll my eyes but when I see this shot I can’t help but be charmed). Although published years ago in Country Living, I think it is safe to say Monkey cottage is the favourite of many, by how often I see it on Pinterest.
Take a look at some more I love.
