Charming Cob Cottage Built From Local & Sustainable Materials

This adorable cob cottage looks like it was plucked straight out of a Grimm fairytale. It’s located on Mayne Island in British Columbia, and has been featured in many books and magazines. Sculpted by hand with the help of CobWorks, who used a variety of local and sustainable materials, the charming cottage is accented by beautiful curves and natural carpentry throughout.It sits in a forested setting surrounded by pastures, vineyards, and just ten minutes from the beach. Guests at the cottage can expect farm fresh eggs, zucchini bread, and peaceful nights with lullabies from the frogs and birds. You can rent it for a night on Airbnb, and judging by the glowing reviews, it is every bit as wonderful as the pictures indicate.
