Nestled amidst the natural beauty of Norway, the Woodnest Treehouses offer a truly romantic and magical escape. Originating from a heartfelt love story, these treehouses have become a fairy-tale destination for others to experience. The story began with a shy Norwegian man who declared he would build a treehouse to propose in if he ever married the woman he loved from Australia. His dream came true when he built a treehouse, proposed, and she accepted. Inspired by their love, Sally and Kjartan decided to construct the Woodnest Treehouses to share the enchantment with others.
The Woodnest Treehouses are far more elaborate than the original proposal treehouse. Kjartan, an electrician and skilled handyman, took on many aspects of the construction. The aim of the design was to elicit a sense of awe and wonder from guests upon arrival and entry. The wooden boardwalk leading to the treehouses sets the stage for an impeccable view of the treehouses against the natural backdrop. The upper walls of the treehouses are entirely made of windows, while the lower walls feature intricately patterned woodwork, creating a harmonious blend with the wilderness.
Upon entering the Woodnest Treehouses, guests are immediately captivated by the spectacular view of the surrounding mountains and the fjord below. The interiors of the treehouses are meticulously designed, with intricate woodwork and craftsmanship evident throughout. Comfort and luxury emanate from every corner, making it tempting to spend the entire getaway within this stunning space.
The Woodnest Treehouses are ideally located within a half-hour drive from Trolltunga, one of Norway’s most magnificent cliff formations, hovering 700 meters above Ringedalsvatnet lake. The nearby town of Odda provides easy access to breathtaking waterfalls, emerald fjords, blue glaciers, snow-capped peaks, and a plethora of nature and hiking opportunities. A stay at the Woodnest Treehouses offers the perfect balance of escape, connection, relaxation, and adventure – all the ingredients for an unforgettable holiday.
Rates for a night at the Woodnest Treehouses start from €260.
