Highs & Lows

  • Setting: peaceful, private and dreamlike setting in the forest.

  • Hospitality: outstanding hospitality and kindness of owners Kent and Britta.

  • Design: clean, stylish Scandinavian / treehouse aesthetic.

  • Respect for nature: admirable eco-credentials and sustainability practices.

  • Sleeping in the treetops: it doesn’t get much better than that.

  • Food: we were impressed with every Swedish-driven meal we ate at the guesthouse, but if you are not so fond of Swedish food you might struggle to find other eating options.
