Bruce Winckler saw a lovely whimsical treehouse crafted by Daniel Huscroft and Timothy Lindberg, and thought that kind of dwelling would fit perfectly on Vancouver Island where he lived. He asked the builders if they’d create a cottage in the same vein, and they agreed.
And so this Hansel and Gretel cottage came off the pages of a storybook and into real life! It’s about 450 square feet, not including the loft bedroom, and while the exterior has fairy tale charm, the interior has a clean and contemporary feel with all the creature comforts.

The grand stone fireplace keeps the place warm during the winter.

Up the stars is the cottage loft bedroom.
And yes, there’s a hot tub!
What do you think of this magical spot?
