The coastal cottage is a location and a possible settlement in the Commonwealth in 2287.


The site consists of a run-down garage and an almost completely destroyed cottage, a truck, and a trailer having crashed through it. Raw materials are limited (even some materials on site cannot be scrapped). There is very little flat land to build on, as the cottage ruins and a small cave underneath take up a large portion of the settlement area.

There is usually a raider or two at this site and mirelurks will spawn from the ground as the Sole Survivor nears the buildings.

Unusually for a settlement site, there is no water pump at this location. The nearest is at Leonard Moore's Shanty store.
