So goes the philosophy of the Treehotel, opening in Sweden this weekend.
Located in the Swedish village of Harads, just south of the Arctic Circle, the hotel currently offers a choice of four rooms—Cabin, Blue Cone, Nest and Mirrorcube. Each room measures 160 to 320 square feet and each is suspended anywhere from 13 to 20 feet above the ground.
The hotel plans to have 24 rooms, each designed by a different architect; the UFO and A Room With a View are already under construction. The rooms were all built from wood and glass and feature an electric floor heating system, a state-of-the-art eco-friendly incineration toilet and a water-efficient hand basin.
Treehotel costs $400-600 per night, but if that price is too steep, you could always climb into the neighbor kid's treehouse and fall asleep for free.
