This is a series of previews of the homes that will be on display during the 29th Annual Beach & Bay Cottage Tour, to be held virtually, July 18-31.

While a virtual tour is new to the Cottage Tour, the professionally-produced video will offer Tour patrons a safe opportunity to view each home as often as they want, from anywhere, during the two-week Tour period. Special features include bird’s-eye drone video footage and the ability to view the Tour on any internet-enabled device.

Tickets, priced at $35, may be purchased only through the Cottage Tour’s website at The Cottage Tour is produced by the Friends of the South Coastal Library. This year’s Tour is the principal source of funding for 2021, and all net proceeds directly benefit the library’s operations.
