Dajeongkeumnamu House

It is a house boasting a history of 100 years that has been preserved for the purpose of planting love for the traditional farm houses that were disappearing due to the Saemaul Movement in the 1970s. The Dajeongkeumnamu House built in thatched cottage style the founder loved so much was reconstructed with red clay and hardwood pillars as the original house was too old to preserve. All employees had been gathering every autumn to thatch the house until 2012 when we started using modern style straw thatch.

Baelongnamu House

Although it doesn’t have the ocean view, it is a place in a forest within sound of the sea, and is suitable to enjoy the forest.

Spacious yard has a Crepe-Myrtle that blossoms red flowers in summer, and shows off the smooth figure in the winter. It was at first called Gamtangnamu House as it was fenced in by hollies, but changed its name to Baelongnamu House in 2012. It is popular as the house is located near the arboretum’s back door which makes it convenient to take a walk around the beach.

Horanggasinamu House

It is a Korean traditional house built after demolishing the old thatched houses. It was built as a staff residence in 1996 and is located in the middle of the arboretum. A beautiful flower garden with a sunshine is located in between the house and Min Byeong-gal memorial hall. It reminds of a home garden with Toona sinensis 'Flamingo' and Lonicera ruprechtiana in front of Bog Garden. Behind the house is a cozy space with a dwarf coniferous forest.

Wiseongryu House

Wiseongryu House has a peaceful view, looking over at the clean sandy beach, azure sea resembling the color of sky, with the birds singing in the arboretum and the beach. Tamarisk is a tree with thin, long, scale-like leaves, and blossoms calming pink flowers in spring and summer. Here, you can enjoy tamarisk while relaxing at the house.

There are separate entrances on the 1st and 2nd floors and can be used independently. It is connected to the back gate of the Arboretum which leads to the beach, and it is particularly popular for its access to the mud-flat and sandy beach that are great for taking a walk.

Haesong House

Haesong House is one of the restored houses that have been relocated from Seoul and maintains a traditional L shape. Some of them have been replaced with new materials, but the basic structures such as ridges of the roof and window frames have been kept to maintain the original appearance of the Korean traditional house as much as possible. The living room and two rooms on both sides are connected by sliding doors, so all the rooms can be connected by opening the doors. It has doors and windows that fold up and hang on the clasp to let the house open to all directions, so you can enjoy the cool sea breeze. The house has a panoramic view of Nangsae Island afar, with Malipo Sea to the left, and Chollipo Sea to the right.

Sacheolnamu House

This is a western style house with a great view of two lush seaside beaches on both sides of it. On the left is Mallipo and on the right is Chollipo with Nagsae Island in the middle. It is a intimate house with two cozy rooms, located within a luch forest. You can truly enjoy the woods with the windows on all sides, and is a calming place with the beautiful sunset and the sound of waves.

Beotnamu House

It is located in the sunniest place out of all the Garden Houses. Its view of green grass, Variegated Garden, Rock Garden, Grass Garden, and a glass greenhouse through the living room window makes it seem like having a small arboretum of your own in the front yard. It is particularly preferred by city people for its convenient access to the outside. Although it is a modernized tile-roofed house, it still has the sentiment of an old farm house with its inner structure and the traditional platform for crocks.

Dongbaeknamu House

Out of all eleven Garden Houses in Chollipo Arboretum, this one is located in the smallest and the most remote place, and gives a feeling of a bungalow of a coastal resort. On a clear day, the blue sea is visible at a glance. Though it has a less appealing history as it used to be a guard post, it was remodeled to a neat garden house in 2012. Though it can be somewhat noisy at the time of opening as it is located near the tour route, you can enjoy rest of the day and the night in nature of birdsongs and sound of waves.

Sosanamu House

It is a house of a gentry in Seoul that’s been relocated and rebuilt on a seashore cliff in Miller Garden looking over the blue sea and Nangsae Island. It was used as a residence and an office for the founder Min Byeong-gal for over 10 years, but lost to the fire in October 1997, then reconstructed in 2006. You can enjoy the view of Nangsae Island veiled in a sea fog in the early morning.

Mongnyeon House

Built in 1985, this Korean traditional style house is the largest and most well-furnished in the Chollipo Arboretum. It was originally the head family house of the Kims of Andong, which was in danger of being flooded due to Imha dam construction. Three large trucks of the original materials were brought in to rebuild the house in Chollipo, but only half of them was salvaged as the rest was too old. Nevertheless, its classical grace and dignity of a prestigious family house still remains. The founder, who was quite frugal, spent enough money to buy five houses to disassemble and reconstruct this house. The reason why he was so devoted to restore the house was because it was for his mother. Though he put extra care and even modified some features to the western style, his mother Edna couldn’t make it her home because a Korean traditional house was not comfortable for her. Located in a private area, the Magnolia House has a magnificent view of the founder's favorite magnolias through the living room window.

Eco-Healing House

The Eco-Healing Center is a modern 3-storey building with rooms for two people (3 rooms), rooms for four, rooms for ten (4 rooms). It also has a large lecture room (maximum occupancy: 100) and small lecture rooms (15 people / 27 people) with the latest video and audio equipment for workshops and group meetings. A total of 100 people can be accommodated. The first floor has a restaurant (90 people) and a communal kitchen (50 people). Mugunghwa Hills and Chollipo Beach are located in front of the eco-healing center, and Guksabong Peak is located in the back, making it perfect for a morning walk and trekking.
