Step into the enchanting world of Urnatur Treehouse Retreat in Sweden and feel transported to a magical, hidden community reminiscent of a lost era. The retreat is dotted with treehouses and cabins, ingeniously blended into the surrounding landscape with moss and foliage, like hobbit homes come to life. Communal areas exude a cozy, intimate atmosphere, warmed by crackling log fires and illuminated by the soft, flickering glow of candles. Here, cooking is an elemental experience, with open flames harking back to a time before the advent of modern conveniences.
But the retreat is not just about rekindling a sense of nostalgia. A stunning lake, within walking distance from the camp, offers a haven of serenity, where guests can unwind and rejuvenate amidst the quiet beauty of nature. The dense forest that cradles the site houses four exquisite treehouses, designed for guests seeking both the thrill of childhood adventures and the tranquility that only trees can provide.
The visionary owners of Urnatur have a keen ear for their guests’ feedback, which they’ve used to craft their one-of-a-kind treehouses. Their journey began with a modest yet charming construct made of leftover materials and just large enough to comfortably sleep one. This tiny, elevated cabin sways with the wind, embodying a sense of whimsy and an affection for the unconventional. But as inquiries for couple-friendly accommodations poured in, the Aircastle was born. This spectacular treehouse, accessed through a remarkable spiral wooden staircase, is designed exclusively for couples seeking a romantic getaway. The single room culminates in a stunning gazebo, reachable via a delightful ladder, offering breathtaking panoramic views. Children, though, are discouraged from this particular treehouse.
For families, Urnatur introduces the Big Raven Nest. Perched among ten towering pine trees, this spacious treehouse can comfortably accommodate four guests. The room features ten expansive windows, offering immersive, 360-degree views of the surrounding woodland. The house’s balcony is the perfect spot to immerse oneself in nature and embark on a journey of self-discovery. The Little Raven Nest, situated on the ascent to the Big Raven Nest, offers two additional beds, making it an ideal addition for larger families, though each house must be reserved separately.
Rates at Urnatur begin at €150 per night, with a standard minimum booking of two nights.
