Cottages

In modern usage, a cottage is usually a modest, often cosy dwelling, typically in a rural or semi-rural location. However there are cottage-style dwellings in cities, and in places such as Canada the term exists with no connotations of size at all In the United Kingdom the term cottage also tends to denote rural dwellings of traditional build, although it can also be applied to dwellings of modern construction which are designed to resemble traditional ones

In certain places the term "cottage" can refer to a vacation/summer home, often located near a body of water. However, in the USA generally this is more commonly called a "cabin", "chalet", or even "camp". Charming cottages are depicted in many paintings
