    In a Few Words

    This innovative and eco-responsible construction has just appeared in the quiet forest of Saint-Hippolyte.

    The Columbus is a luxury chalet built with recycled sea containers. It was the subject of a series of webcast broadcasts released on social networks in 2018 under the name Projet Columbus!

    The mega shack offers a memorable stay with the sound of birds, sublime sunsets as well as hiking trails and ski resorts nearby.

It will enchant you with its huge windows that let the sun in at all time of day, its spirit of peace and silence.

    We had a wonderful stay at Tobie's place. Clean place and very good communication. Just note that most access to the lakes around the house are private.
    Stylish house in a picturesque and very quiet corner of the Laurentians.
    Loved it!
    Tobie's place was an excellent place to stay for a winter snow fun weekend, just before the holidays. I am sure it would also be a very nice place to stay anytime of the year as well. The container style shack is a sweet and innovative idea, and was far from being small. With 8 people living in there, we had more than enough space. It is hard to find a cottage airbnb with queen size beds in each room. Tobie has them, which is great! From practical aesthetic touches to comfortable queen sized beds, we had a great time spending the weekend with four couples in total and three dogs (we also did our part to clean up our dog's fur to make it easier for our host, not out of necessity, but out of gratitude). Tobie is also an excellent communicators and everything went well. Thank you Tobie!
    Tobie's place was outstanding. Sparkling clean and very comfortable. My husband and I were very happy. Tobie was also very kind to allow our two dogs to stay as well. Nice hiking trails nearby. A beautiful place all around.
    We loved out stay at Tobie's place. The location is beautiful and the house is better than what you can see in the pictures. Very roomy and cozy. We would love to go back!
    Great place, quiet, clean. We felt cozy and relaxed the minute we walked in it. Excellent for a quiet getaway surrounded by nature.
