The 7th Room at the TreeHotel
If you find yourself in Harads, I would highly recommend booking one of the 7 magical rooms offered by the TreeHotel, situated in the middle of a pine forest near the Lule River. The rooms, which are really their own little bungalows, go by the names of “the UFO,” “The Mirrorcube,” and “The Birds Nest,” but my absolute favourite is “The 7th Room” which you can read more about below:
“As you near the seventh room from below and look up at the sky, the entire underside of the building is covered by a life size photograph of the treetops as they looked before the room was put in place. This clever camouflage piques one’s curiosity. What is hiding up there? The room is located ten metres up in the pines. The way up is an experience in itself. Stairs and landings take visitors closer to the clouds, step by step. As you reach the large, lush, Lapland treetops, with a breath taking view of the Lule River, you have arrived at your destination. Large panoramic windows face north and along with skylights in the bedrooms, they will allow guests to watch the magnificent northern lights. The room has been designed with various ‘experience levels’.
The most spectacular level may well be the patio which consists of a net. A natural pine grows through net and its branches spread out, allowing you to climb out and sit there, with the strong net safely below. You can lie face down and look downwards, lie on your back, listen to the sounds of the forest and look up at the starry sky. Here, on the border between Heaven and Earth, you can even sleep outdoors, should you wish to, or indoors, inside the new suite with two separate bedrooms. The room covers 100 square metres of construction space, of which 75 square metres are living space. The room will accommodate five people and will consist of two double beds, a bed sofa, a lounge, a bathroom and shower. Organic solutions, Scandinavian wood and textiles define the interiors. The facade consists of a black, charred wooden surface, unlike any of the other rooms.
Britta’s Pensionat is open for Treehotel’s guests, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner in an authentic 1930-1950’s setting. There’s a restaurant, bar, sauna and relaxation area, TV, and internet. When you arrive at Treehotel, you first check at Britta’s pensionat; then it’s a short stroll through the breathtaking nature to your treeroom.” (Description from the www.treehotel.se website)
THE TREE HOUSE AT POST RANCH INN
(Big Sur, California, USA)
Big Sur has been described as the “greatest meeting of land and water in the world,” but Post Ranch Inn has found a way to create one of the greatest meetings of land and sky! The Tree Houses are “free-standing structures built on stilts nine feet off the forest floor with a stairway to each entrance. Triangular in shape, each room features a King bed, window seat, desk, fireplace and skylight to watch the stars from bed each evening. These rooms offer a luxurious opportunity for anyone who has ever dreamed of sleeping amongst the trees.” …and in style, I might add!
THE TREEHOUSE ROOM AT PLAYA VIVA
Now the view really doesn’t get much better than this! Wake up to the smell of the beach and the sound of the waves when staying at the Treehouse Room at Playa Viva, where you’ll be surrounded by palm trees and a true sense of leaving it all behind.
