The coolest cottages combine the spirit of summer camp with grown-up style.

Colony of Wellfleet, Wellfleet, MA

11 of 12

Built in 1948, these 10 Bauhaus-style homes in the artsy fishing village of Wellfleet are anything but traditional Cape cottages. They have a storied past—first as a private club, then as a retreat for some of America’s most creative elites in the 1960s and ’70s—but today they’re open to anyone looking to find inspiration in the ocean breeze and Midcentury Modern design. Part hotel, with a daily cleaning service, and part rental home with your own kitchen and deck (not to mention Herman Miller, Eames, and Knoll furniture), this place is a true work of art.

Price Tag: From $205 per night (double occupancy); colonyofwellfleet.com.
