In the woodland next to Hornborgasjön lake in Sweden, stands the Islanna Treehouse Hotel. It started as just one cabin up in the trees, but such was the demand for a night or two sleeping aloft that a second treehouse was constructed! Now, guests can choose from a stay in the Andrum Treehouse or Seventh Heaven. Each house is unique and achieves a special combination of both making their guests feel spoiled, whilst also feeling the peaceful seclusion of the forest setting. They make for a wonderful holiday indeed, as it is impossible to remember any stress whilst living here.
The first cabin at the Islanna Treehouse Hotel is the idyllic Andrum. It offers an absolutely fantastic opportunity for guests who are looking for something extra; peace and quiet, yet with an abundance of excitement. With its unique location 6.5 feet up in an old oak tree, it is completely undisturbed and enjoys spectacular views. Embraced by the generous foliage of the large oaks, guests will fall asleep swaying gently with the wind. The room is approximately 18 m² and usable in winter. The walls are painted in carefully selected, mild and harmonious colors. Two patios provide opportunities for sun both at midday and sunset, and of course, spectacular views all around.
Seventh Heaven is a perfect addition to the Islanna Treehouse Hotel. The inspiration behind the design of this house was sought from ancient buildings including Trosa, old Linköping, Hjo, and not least from Mössebergsparken in Falköping. Guests feel as though they sleep out in the wilderness under the starry sky, with the comforts of a house surrounding them. When guests arrive at either treehouse, the room is beautifully decorated. There are fruit, chocolate, and a little bottle of bubbly. In the morning, breakfast will be hoisted up to the balcony, including warm, stone-baked bread baked from a traditional open-fire oven.
Rates for a night at Islanna Treehouse Hotel start at €250 per night, which includes all the fabulous extra treats mentioned!
