The Columbus, a containers cottage!
This innovative and eco-responsible build has just been completed in it's quiet forest of Saint Hippolyte.
Columbus is a luxury cottage that was built with recycled shipping containers. It has been featured in a professional web series on Facebook called Projet Columbus.
The huge shack offers you a memorable stay with birds singing and unforgettable sunsets as well as ski hills close by. You can also take advantage of many swimming and hiking opportunities close by.
Located in the heart of the Laurentian forest, this cottage is ideal for resourcing and unwinding with your group or family. It will enchant you with it's big windows that let the sun in at all time of day. The cottage is suitable for relaxing and not so suitable for parties so we ask people that come here to have a quiet time and refrain from making too much noise.
Apart from that, relax and have fun!
