Small rustic cabin at Urnatur retreat center

As soon as I discovered this collection of small houses, I was taken. Wow! These rustic cabins with green roofs, treehouses, and small homes are located at Urnatur, in Sweden, an eco lodge and retreat center.

Urnatur is a family-owned retreat and tree house hotel, with private cabins in the incredible Swedish forest. It’s a place where individuals can go to learn about traditional skills (foraging wild foods, traditional building), or simply go for a bit of downtime.

    These are just so beautiful! Make me feel better just by watching the pictures.

Green, sustainable building is not such complicated science and it does not mean giving up comfort either!
