A Museum for Helixophiles.

Written By: Tipsy Table - Sep• 12•14

Who knew?  A person who collects corkscrews is a helixophile. And the perfect destination for helixophiles is The Corkscrew Museum at the Corkscrew Inn Bed & Breakfast in Vancouver, B.C. www.corkscrewinn.com

With a theme of corkscrews, we are now anxious to journey north across the border to check out this unique destination. From the museum website:

Our inn is a carefully restored 1912 Craftsman style home, a showcase of stained glass artistry, and a museum of antique objects related to the making and enjoyment of wine. We designed the Corkscrew Inn to be the type of place we like to stay when we’re away – comfortable, luxurious, and full of interesting things.

This place has not only a corkscrew museum collection, but also a wine collection. It beckons to us as we contemplate the new Find My Corkscrew app.
