Since the final movie in the Twilight saga premiered last year, readers have been begging for photos of Edward and Bella’s sweet little honeymoon cottage in the woods. I finally got around to watching it myself and getting the pics for you, and I have to agree with everyone who said, “It’s the best thing about the movie!”
The exterior of the cottage in the movie looked kind of fake to me. I thought maybe it was just CGI (like baby Renesmee in the movie), especially since we never get any real closeups of it. However, a fansite posted photos of the cottage being built in February 2011. I’m guessing it was in Vancouver, where they filmed exterior scenes for the movie.
The interiors were created on a separate soundstage (they filmed at Raleigh Studios in Louisiana).
The Living Room:
Esme and Alice fixed up the run-down old cottage behind the Cullens’ main house as a 19th birthday gift for Bella.
Here’s how Bella describes the cottage in the book:
“There, nestled into a small clearing in the forest, was a tiny stone cottage, lavender gray in the light of the stars…. Honeysuckle climbed up one wall like a lattice, winding all the way up and over the thick wooden shingles. There was a little path of flat stones, amethyst in the night, that led up to the quaint arched wooden door.”
Bella’s Walk-in Closet:
Alice makes sure Bella’s walk-in closet is fully stocked with clothes and shoes. Who wouldn’t love a sister-in-law like that?
The only photo I could get of the bedroom was this one, of Bella in front of the fireplace. Made me a little crazy that the camera didn’t give us a better look at it.
Renesmee grows so fast that the next time we see her room, there’s a big-girl bed in it instead of a crib:
My only complaint? They didn’t spend more time in the cottage! I thought they should have had the rest of the movie take place in it. Ha.
