Wood Wise Cabins
The glass houses have their origins right here in Dalsland. The architect Jeanna Berger, who grew up here in the area, wanted to pay tribute to the beautiful landscapes and nature in a way where we humans can have an opportunity to enjoy the surroundings from a slightly more luxurious accommodation but with the thought of trying to make as little intrusion into nature as possible. The cozy glass houses provide a very natural experience as both the roof and both long sides are made of glass. One gable consists entirely of doors, if you open them you have a completely clear view out into the greenery.
In a glass house there is only a double bed, two log chairs and a few hooks to hang your clothes. Under the bed you can store your bag and personal items that you may have with you. The small house is decorated in a minimalist way, because here you really only have to lie down or settle down and breathe in fresh air, let your thoughts come and go, enjoy the stillness and tranquility around you. On the outer side of the glass house, on one short side, there are washing facilities and water at your disposal. There is also a small terrace with table and chairs for a cup of coffee or tea. On warmer days, you can sleep with the doors open, a mosquito net ensures that the night’s sleep is undisturbed.
They have done a lot of research on the positive effect nature can give us humans. Among other things, the West Sweden Tourist Board and Visit Sweden did a study here in Dalsland in 2017 of the effect it had on 5 people staying 72 hours in the forest, with the overnight stays in glasshouses. Participants’ stress levels decreased by as much as 70%, blood pressure dropped, anxiety levels were reduced, and proximity to the tranquility of nature increased creativity. The glasshouses are therefore also called 72 hour cabins.
Let the treetops, the starry sky and nature embrace you and give you new strength and energy!
