Concrete Fairy Tale Cottage, Huntington’s Point, Nova Scotia

This cottage was built at Huntington’s Point, Nova Scotia by Charles Macdonald, sometime between 1934-38. He and his wife built 5 of these fairy tale dwellings out of concrete, reinforced with iron and driftwood.

We took a drive out here today on this rather damp and overcast day and this cottage brightened up the landscape on the shore of the Bay of Fundy.
