We would like to welcome you to spend time in the Swedish countryside in our 72 hour Cabin. Relax and unwind at one of the island’s beautiful glass houses.

There are five identical glasshouses individually placed well apart from each other on the southern part of the island. All with a stunning view over the lake and over the sky. They are all served by a fully equipped house ”The Pavillion” with kitchen, open fireplace, bathroom & toilet, veranda and terrace with furnitures. Have your meals here or just by the shore.

During your 72 hour stay you stay in comfort and close to nature. You have access to typically Swedish nature-based activities. Take a walk in the forest, partly a biotope protection area. Rowing or fishing from a traditional rowing boat or from land. Walking tips and a map over paths, a fishing rod and rowingboats is at your disposal and so is a woodheated sauna just by the lake..

We will meet you by boat at our jetty right below the 1200th century church of Ånimskog and take you to the boathouse at Henriksholm Island.

An Homage to Swedish Natural Settings

The glass houses have been built to be a part of the natural scenery. The size, construction, design and colour scheme embed them into their surroundings. The designer Jeanna Berger describes the houses as an homage to typically Swedish and Dalsland natural settings. The roof and sides of the houses are made of glass and the houses stand on pillars so that they leave the smallest possible footprint on the landscape. The inspiration for the glass house is derived from Dalsland barns.
