    Default Treehotel: a hotel with rooms in the trees in a forest in Sweden


    A lofty new hotel concept is set to open in a remote village in northern Sweden, which aims to elevate the simple treehouse into a world-class destination for design-conscious travellers. Treehotel, located in Harads about 60 km south of the Arctic Circle, will consist of four rooms when it opens on July 17th: the Cabin, the Blue Cone, the Nest and the Mirrorcube. Two additional structures are scheduled to open in October - the UFO and A Room With a View


    The first six structures were designed by five different architects. The Mirrorcube which stands four metres high and four metres wide, has drawn widespread attention as it will be attached to a single tree

    The Treehotel's vision is proving a powerful draw, with enquiries coming in from far and wide


    The motto of Treehotel is "feel free in a tree" and the luxury of the experience will cost up to 4,200 Swedish crowns ($555.50) for two guests in the Mirrorcube, which is designed to hold up to four guests

    Um, how do you get IN?
    How can you trust anything that bleeds for 3 days every month but doesn't die?

    I'm guessing stepladder on the other side of the tree.
    Love it as much as I hate it.
    Once I'm up there I won't see the awesome cube anymore.
    Then I'll remember I still have to carry the remaining luggage up there and I'll be disenchanted...

    I feel the poor tree has been insulted.

    I don't see a bathroom either. Do people have to shit in the woods with the bears?

    I'm so afraid of heights even the pictures of this hotel room freaks me out. It's too high in the air for me to get to. . .

    My thoughts exactly. Also, are there no pillows associated with the bed? Just how rustic is one expected to be at this place?
