Why Not Tour A National Historical Landmark This Holiday?



A National Historic Landmark, Marble House is located at 596 Bellevue Ave., Newport, Rhode Island. Open daily and decorated for the holidays until January 4, 2009, this summer beach cottage is a favorite of Beach House Finds. The Newport Beach house was built between 1888 and 1892 for Mr. and Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt, as a summer house, or "cottage", as Newporters called them. Marble House was a social and architectural landmark in Newport's legendary resort of opulent stone palaces. The cost of the house was reported to be $11 million, of which $7 million was spent on 500,000 cubic feet of marble. Upon its completion, Mr. Vanderbilt gave the house to his wife, Alva Vanderbilt a leading hostess in Newport society as a 39th birthday present.

On December 27, 2008 you can spend the Holiday Evening at The Breakers with a leisurely self-guided evening tour through the historical landmark as you enjoy live holiday music and holiday sweets, eggnog and cider.


Tickets are $25.00 for Adults and can be purchased online from
The Preservation Society of Newport County or at the Breakers.

Think live oaks hung with Spanish moss that form canopies all over the island. Owning a three-bedroom three-bath house one block from the beach that is a 15-minute drive over the causeway to Brunswick, and another hour and 15 minutes to the airport in Savannah, Georgia.

Beach house finds along with the New York Times found this June Bright Cottage which is neo-traditional with the necessary modern comforts as well as the charm of beach cottages of the past. The cottage has two porches, which wrap from front to back and are accessible from every room, think hammocks, swings, and rocking chairs from which to capture spectacular views of ocean and marsh.

The island the cottage is situated on is 12 miles long and three miles wide, has seven golf courses, bike paths and several waterfront stretches devoted to fishing and swimming. Kayak tours, dolphin tours and ghost tours of the local light house. Plus the island’s restaurants and boutiques are within walking distance of the house. This is truly a beach house find!

A Fall Midwest Beach Table


In the fall bring the beach indoors (and use a floor-to-ceiling view of that glorious lake as a backdrop). This setting celebrates the warmer tones found in the dunes only in the fall – celadon greens and rich taupes. Bundles of dried dunegrass anchor the table and create height, with natural stone vases and votive holders adding a soft glow. Sprinkle a collection of local shells around the place settings for a personal touch; the effect is mimicked in a charming seashell-shaped pitcher. The ceramic European dishware in hydrangea green is perfect for a relaxed alfresco brunch or lunch, with a simple, flat piece of driftwood used as a serving platter. Stylist Robert Michael Northington says “It’s a specialness that can only be found in communities by water – an easy, breezy way of living and entertaining that’s artistic, creative and relaxed.”

Chicago born and raised Robert Northington who now lives in Millers Beach, Lake Country in Indiana has been a fellow boutique owner friend and partner in design for years! They met in the Chicago Showroom of Barbara Sheehan in 1995 and were quick to become designing friends. In Chicago they have collaborate heads on many projects and on this site Beach House Finds Robert rallied around its conception. Robert Northington is featured in Lakemagazine.com for Tablescapes he styled.

As
Lake Magazine's Editor, Megan Waitkoff stated "It takes a certain je ne sais quoi to take a blank canvas and design a masterpiece – which is exactly what LAKE asked Robert Northington to do with our “Tablescapes” feature. He created three masterpieces, to be exact."

Oregon has exciting storms, blissful sunsets, moonlight beams and starlit nights. Lincoln City, is a favorite vacation destination in the Northwest and is located on the Central Oregon Coast. Imagine strolling down the coastline and stumbling upon a richly colorful hand blown glass float. Years ago, people would find treasures like these drifting ashore from places near and far. Today, most floats are made of other materials and are absent color all together; unless of course you visit Lincoln City, Oregon. In recent years, the city has revived this treasure hunt and now places glass floats on the beach for people to find and enjoy. These one of a kind floats are numbered and can be registered with the local Chamber of Commerce making them a truly special piece of memorabilia. Visit the beaches of Lincoln City and find a glass float to take home with you.

Is Small the New Large In Beach Cottages?




Images by Ben Anders


London based Danish designer Nina Tolstrup of Studiomama wanted a weekend retreat to escape life in so she bought a small plot of land on the shore in a seaside town located in northeast Kent. The 388-square-foot structure is located in the middle of a row of 25 tiny cottages, sits on galvanized steel stilts, and is clad with cedar shingles. The interior is sawn softwood and the focus is the sea view. A sleeping loft accommodates Ms. Tolstrup and her husband, and her two children who sleep in bunks. Nina has designed this beach house to be pared down to the essentials: eat, drink, sleep, and view. We think it is the perfect Beach house find!

At Beach House Finds we all love our jobs and life by the beach. However as the U.S. economy continues to struggle, studies have shown that financial-related stress can lead to health issues. A workout such as yoga when you are living by the beach can be a wonderful stress reliever and a way to slow the mind and body down.
