13 Times Mermaid Cottages Are Decked Out For Spring

Mermaid Cottages are all decked out for Spring much like the beachy whites, pastels and seer suckers you love to wear at the beach.  A hot cup of Mermaid Morning Bliss Coffee at sunrise, a pot luck picnic at lunch and a candlelit, romantic dinner out under the stars are just a few of the reasons our decks are so beachy.  Some have umbrellas and some prefer the wide open, blue sky.  Some are high up top and others are a little more down to earth.  Some decks even become docks that stretch out over the water and the marshes.  All of them are just that perfect slice of island life of which we can’t get enough.
