Treehotel – Unique Hotel Perched On Trees to Open In Sweden

Treehotel, a unique new hotel which has transformed the simple treehouse concept from childhood into a destination for design conscious travelers, will be unveiled in Harads, Northern Sweden, on July 17, 2010.

The inspiration for the Treehotel project was borrowed from a documentary film that followed three urban friends who came out to Harads and built a treehouse. That treehouse has been used as a rental unit over the last year and ultimately inspired hotel developers to develop this project.

The Treehotel in Harads will initially consist of only six rental units, each with its own theme including the Cabin, Mirror House, UFO, Marge uppe bland trädkronorna, Triangle, and the Birds Nest. Each rental unit will be 50-100 square feet and will be located 13-19 feet above the ground. All units will be built around one or more pine trees, with each unit containing separate sleeping and living areas, an eco-friendly incineration based toilet, and a water-efficient sink. Out of the initial six units, four will be double rooms and two will house four beds. Each of the rooms will contain an electric floor heating system to provide extra warmth. Access to each unit will be either through a ramp or sturdy stairs with two units having electric retractable stairs.
