Horizon Neighborhood. Cabins are elevated to rise above the 500" of annual snow fall. Living spaces are placed on the upper level above the snow affording sunset views over the Wasatch Mountain range.

Twenty years after architect Brian MacKay-Lyons and his wife Marilyn happened on the ruins of an abandoned fishing village on the southern shore of Nova Scotia, @shobacns opened as an "agricultural village" with cattle, horses, and sheep roaming its pastures and drumlins, or hills created by passing glaciers. Visitors can rent any of the four cabins, the studio, the schoolhouse, the barn, Point House, or Enough House. Some buildings date back to the 1800s, and others are modern designs by MacKay-Lyons and his Ghost Residency interns, creating a campus that evolves with time while keeping its historic roots alive.
