Our favourite rooms
The Blue Cone is great for families with small children – there’s a walkway to the entrance for pushchairs, and its snug size makes it a cosy stay for up to four, with a double bed downstairs and twins on the gabled second storey. The 1950s-kitsch UFO treehouse, which has a double bed and twin beds, looks convincingly like a crash-landed extra-terrestrial craft – its interiors are less chic than the other treehouses, but kids will love the fun sci-fi decor and keeping watch for space invaders through the porthole windows. We also love the Bird's Nest, a quirky branch-coated cube with a double bed and bunk beds for two kids.
Up to eight people at a time can settle on the tree sauna's benches; towels, drinks, snacks, soap and shampoo are included with each session (SEK 200 an adult, SEK75 a child). The whirlpool plunge bath in the well-outfitted shower block will bubble away any stress, and the tree-flanked open-air hot tub is brisk in winter but perfect for lazy sightseeing all year round.
Britta’s guesthouse – the reception building – is where you’ll be welcomed; it’s filled with vintage trinkets, and there’s coffee on tap for grown-ups and bowls of free sweets for kids. The shared kitchen is handy for heating milk or baby food.
Babysitting must be booked more than two days in advance; tree-sauna sessions, and exclusive use of the larger shower block must be booked at least a week in advance too.
Dogs stay free, but only in the Blue Cone treehouse.
Britta and Kent, the hotel’s owners, are serious about treading lightly in their surroundings: the treehouses are built on live trees, using non-intrusive construction methods, and all materials are chemical-free. Hydroelectric power and low-energy LED lighting are used throughout, and bathrooms have combustion toilets (or freezing toilets) and water-efficient sinks.
