This Hotel In Denmark Is The Ultimate Tree House For Adults

A perfect getaway is one of those things that we all dream about, be it an exotic resort or a weekend camping by a lake. And if a forest sounds like the best retreat for you, then Rasmus Lybæk has just the perfect spot. Following his dream to bring people closer to nature, he decided to create Løvtag (Danish for “canopy”), a dreamy destination surrounded by Denmark’s sublime nature near Mariager Fjord on the Als Odde peninsula.

More info: lovtag.dk | sigurdlarsen.com

The first Løvtag cabin in a tree is already available for booking

So far, only one of nine houses have been built and the architect behind these minimalist tree cabins is Sigurd Larsen. This isn’t the first minimalist structure that Larsen worked on, as he’s designed structures like lake houses in the past. Fascinated by Larsen’s signature style and experience with small-space design, Lybæk chose him to bring his dream into reality.

One of the coolest and environmentally friendly aspects of this project is that no trees will be harmed or removed for the construction. Instead, the cabins are designed in such a way that a tree could grow right through it. The first cabin is built around a pine tree, while the second and third are planned to be constructed around an oak and a beech tree, respectively.

The pocket-sized structures are built 6-8 meters (26 feet) up the tree and are accessed by a wooden bridge. The house is supported by metal beams and has large windows to the south and west to allow plenty of natural light to get in.

The 31m² (334-square-foot) cabin includes two sleeping spaces, a kitchenette, a living and dining area, access to a rooftop terrace, and a bathroom which opens up to a shower that’s located outdoors. Luckily for those not used to the true “accommodation” of nature, the house has water, electricity, and indoor plumbing.

The treehouse is available for booking now and has enough space for up to four people. The price for a night starts from 2,750 Danish Krone ($415 USD) for two people and includes a light breakfast.

Ummm I live in Denmark and, honestly, that is a difficult location for someone coming for a visit and quite expensive for spending a night in what is actually just a stilted home in the woods. Also, the Hay Design patio furniture is quite possibly the world's most uncomfortable patio furniture ever built. Pretty to look at but if I were staying in the forest and wanted to relax within the nature, those chairs would definitely prevent me from doing so. It's a lovely idea, but at that price you could spend a few nights in a lovely seaside bungalow in Skodsborg or in a home built in the 1800s in Helsingør and both are maybe an hour from Copenhagen (which has actual stuff to do when you run out of love for the uncomfortable chairs in the middle of the mosquito and tick infested forests of Northern Denmark).

Maybe thats the appeal? Sometimes my partner and I like to disconnect from the rest of the world and stay literally in the middle of nowhere. We bring enough supplies for the duration anf BYE BYE WORLD, HELLO COMPLETE AND UTTER PRIVACY. See that furniture om the rooftop wouldnt be much of an issue, because we'd bring an air mattress and chill under the stars :) it would be fantastic!
