The inspiration for the Treehotel comes from the documentary film, Trädälskaren (Treelover) by Jonas Selberg Augustsen. We're not cultured enough to have seen it but apparently it's about three dudes who build a tree house.
And when you read this quote in the Philosophy section of the hotel's website, it's hard not to say, 'yeah, why not indeed?'
Why not create a comfortable, well designed hotel which allows visitors to live in harmony with nature amongst the trees?
Each of the treehouse rooms is designed by a different architect and can be reached by a ramp or sturdy staircase. Amenities include eco-friendly incineration toilets and water-efficient hand basin, and electric under-floor heating.
Rooms start at 3500 Swedish Kronor—around $475 USD a night. That's for two tree-loving guests and includes a buffet breakfast.
Oh, and in case you were wondering: Birds will not be hurt when they encounter the Mirror Cube room pictured above. The glass panes include a transparent ultraviolet color that will be visible to birds alone.
Now, that's one creative Do Not Disturb sign!
