Virginia enjoys her cottage in the NH woods near a lake. It's a beautiful area that attracts weekenders and summer folk.

Names for a Beach House, Woods Cabin, Lake Cottage, or Other Vacation Home

You want the perfect name for your vacation home. It isn't easy to find just the right phrase that expresses creativity and suits your family, their interests, and their activities.

In addition, most people want the home's name to reflect its surroundings. Are there woods, a lake, the beach, mountains, a river, or other natural attraction? Then you'll probably want the name of your retreat to include that feature.

If you're puzzling over what to name your special place, check out the ideas I've gathered below. You'll love the cottage name generator tool and the sample names I've gathered. In addition, I've found resources for getting that unique name put on a sign for your vacation home.

Combine Two Names to Make a Cottage Name

Combine Surnames: To get Moss Creek (shown in the photo above), the homeowners combined two last names, Martin and Ross, to get Moss. The property had a creek, so it became Moss Creek.

The home happens to be a log cabin with a small pond and the creek with wood around that. When I visit family, I always look forward to a stop at Moss Creek. The sign is carved from Kansas limestone. Doesn't it look handsome!

When I moved into my off-the-grid cabin in Colorado, I decided I would name my place after the first significant animal encounter that I had. (Thank heavens, it wasn't a snake!) That first weekend I had an amazing encounter with a mama bear and her cub. And so my cozy mountain place is called "Little Bear Lodge." It fits.

Farms Are Often Given a Name Too

Personalized Sign With Your Cottage's Name On It

Once you choose a name for your vacation home, you'll want a sign to show it off and help visitors find it. You can find such signs at craft fairs or order one conveniently from Amazon. I think a moose sign would look great for our cabin in New Hampshire.

I am living in a lake house right now, and I want to name it something like, "Can't Wait to Get Away From the Bugs" or "Camp Kill-a-Roach". (It's been a hot dry summer here, and bugs are coming inside in spite of exterminating!)

Examples of Matching a Name to the Cottage

Cottage Needing a Name
 
My Suggestions
I've refurbished a trailer w enclosed sun porch on the river in Virginia. The décor is mostly white. It overlooks the marina with a view of a train trestle (the train passes hourly) ... It's all very quaint.
 
How about Whistle Stop Cottage or Dreaming by the River? You could incorporate the name of the river into the house name.
We are trying to name our new home which overlooks the ocean from the top of an incline. The house is small with large windows facing the water. We are also tucked in behind another property closer to the road.
 
Gull's Nest? Window on the Water? Sailor's Rest?
Our house is in Lake Chelan on the hilltop next to a winery with a vineyard with bikes to ride and trails to walk. It's a planned community with houses close together, swimming pools, parks to play in, views of the lake, fire pits for s'mores, community barbecue area, very friendly people with kids and pets.
 
How about calling your house "Chillin' by the Lake" as a take-off on Lake Chelan?

Questions & Answers

  • What is the best name for a cottage house by the river?

    You could go with a name like Riversedge or Bankside.

  • What's a good name for a cottage that has mountain views next to pastures, a tiny waterfall in a creek, and lots of birds?

    You probably can't work all those elements into one name. Choose one or choose two and combine them. If the mountains have names, maybe work one of those into the name.

  • What is good name for apartments with something related to “sun” in it?

    How about something with the word "sol" in it, like "Casa Del Sol"? You can also hyphenate a phrase to make a nice name, like "Sun-N-Fun." Turn sun into a descriptive word like sunny and add to that. Or "Sunny Retreat," perhaps.

  • What is the best name for a family house?

    For vacation homes, I like lots of descriptive, even playful names. For my own home, I'd settle for something with the family name or dignified description. My sister used Moss Creek for their home. That includes the first letter of her maiden name and three letters from her married name plus a feature on their property (a creek).

  • What are suitable guest house names that incorporate "pine trees" and "hill station"?

    "Pine Hill" perhaps or "Tall Pines." To sound exotic, you can name it in another language ("Alberi di Pino" is "pine trees" in Italian). Another idea is "Top of the Hill."

      We’re building a log home in Lake Anna, VA. Although we’re not right on the lake, we’re a short walking distance to our boat slip, and wonder if we can use “lake house” as part of the name? Our name is Rudolph, we’re planning to have a red metal roof (if approved). Our favorite vacation spot is Key West. Would love to hear your ideas for a catchy name.

Some obvious names have already been taken like- Heaven on 7, Eagle on 7, Birds Eye View. My husband thinks Beau Chateau won’t attract renters but that was our original thought. Help and thank you!

The city and street are unpronounceable for foreigners and my rental market is foreign students and young couples. I love animals and have decorated with art of animals (zebra, hedgehog, cows, pigs, etc.). Perhaps something in the line of Ravens Loft? (I love birds). However, I want to avoid apostrophes and it should have a nice ring to it. Ideas?

Maybe something like "Hobbit's Rest"? I live in central Arkansas, but I'm actually from the Ozark Mountains, so I guess "Hillbilly Hobbits" wouldn't be fitting in this setting?

      We need to name a place in the Red Sea for a Villa that is located near the beach. What name is good to use. The place has a sea view and is within walking distance to the beach. It's in a quiet area.

      David - You could work the name of the river into your camp name or use words like rio, stream, river's edge, then combine with your family name or a descriptive word like peaceful, sylvan, retreat, etc.

      You can incorporate the name of the river into the name and add "cottage" or "house" to it. You could call it something like Bankside Cottage or XYZ House or River View or Riveredge.

      We are thinking of a name suited for our transient house in the northern part of Philippines particularly Baguio City - the summer capital of the Philippines. It is well known as the city pines.

      Kelly - how about a combination of the family names (use the first syllable of each)? Could the guest house be Cascadia Cabin though I like the Hilltop Haven name. Elk Lodge? Mountain Dream?

      Hi Virginia, we just purchased our dream log home in the mountains view a beautiful view of the Cascade mountain range. I want to name our home and also our guest house which we will rent on Airbnb. I've been thinking for the rental " hilltop haven " but I'm at a loss for our main home. Hoping to get a suggestion. There are 5 in our family. And deer and elk in the area. Thank you, Kelly

      I am looking for a name for my Florida home. It is on the Gulf coast on a barrier island known as Siesta Key. It is on the water's edge of Coconut Bayou. It's a gathering place for family and friends. It is a home vs a cottage. Any suggestions?

      I'm going to ponder this a bit, Filip. One that comes to mind like "Jovan's Retreat" to honor your great-grandfather.

      Dear Virginia,

      I would like you to help a little with name for our lovely village house.

      It is located in the sunny Macedonia, near the greek border. Lays on a little hill and like 300 days of the year are sunny and warm. The house is small with huge garden , place for kids to play since we have nephews and lots of fruit trees and decorative trees. Other feature are few old almonds who are planted many years ago by our great grandfather Jovan.

      Please think of something I would be very thankful and you will be always a very welcomed guest:)

      Joseph, think about words for hill in the language of that area. Malai for Tamil or Ṭēkarī for Gujarati. Work that into a name and then for fun mix it with English descriptive words.

      If I lived in an apartment, I'd call mine The Book Nook as I'd have bookshelves in all the rooms. You could combine your name with something descriptive too.

      My husband and I have a flat in Muizenberg, Cape Town, South Africa! We're newlyweds (2 months strong!) and our place is tiny, but it overlooks the beach and our place is full of love and plant life. Any suggestions?
