Cabin in the middle of the forest

Cabin - Entire home/apt · DUNKETORP, Åtvidaberg, 59797, Sweden

The Space

At the beginning of the beautiful Uknadalen, close to a charming forestlake, is our small, simple cottage embedded in
the woods. It is suitable for those who want to relax, have peace and quiet, and loves to walk in nature.
We have no neighbors, and there are beautiful hiking trails that start right at the plot. The forest is full of mushrooms and berries.

A 400 m forest road takes you to a little lake, where it is perfectly possible to go swimming. It is, however, no beach, if you want it there are plenty of alternatives within a few kilometers.

In the picturesque Uknadalen there are plenty of small lakes, suitable for swimming, beautiful mountains and valleys, and small craft shops to explore. It is also close enough to the sea, for a daytrip. Yet, the cottage is only 8 km from Åtvidabergs center, with supermarkets and other stores.

The closest city is Linköping, with medevial churches, great shopping and nightlife.

There is a bus stop 1,5 km from the cabin, but there are no buses passing there on weekends. In Åtvidaberg, however, there are buses and trains all week.

You can find pillows and blankets in the cottage, and proper beds for seven, but please bring your own linens. Linens can be provided by us for a small fee, though.
Please note that this is not a luxurious house, but a simple little red cottage, intended for relaxation. We have composting toilet (in a tiny house outside), running water, electricity, stove, oven, microwave, fridge, heating, and a fireplace.

  • We slept one night in this lovely Cabin. As described, this is not a palace, but a cabin in the middle of the forest. But don't get me wrong. It has everything you need. For a city guy as myself that was exactly what I needed. The cabin has heaters and fireplace and the lake and the trees and the peace... delightful. Shame we had no more time to stay few more days... Just lovely!!! Beautiful!!
    Oh! And the communication with Sara was splendid!
    Thanks for everything! :)

  • Nice little house lost in the middle of forests. The place is clean and has everything You might need! The beds are comfortable. There is a working fireplace in the house. Only one thing: the toilet is not inside, and it stays quite far. So, if the weather is not good, You may dislike it).

  • 3 jours en pleine nature : calme et détente assurés. Promenades et baignades dans un très beau site : tout est prévu pour ça.
    Les 2 petites cabanes sont parfaites pour bien se sentir et pour couper avec le rythme du quotidien.
    Merci à Sara pour nous avoir permis cette parenthèse bucolique lors de notre séjour en Suède.

  • Dieses kleine märchenhafte Häusschen ist einfach herrlich! Der Garten wunderbar und das Gefühl, mitten im Wald zu wohnen, keine Menschenseele weit und breit eine Wonne! Es war ein ganz toller Urlaub - mit Abstand der beste, den wir seit ein paar Jahren gemacht haben. Die Lage des Häusschens macht auch Tagesausflüge ans Meer möglich. So hat sich bei uns ein Rhythmus entwickelt, der Abwechslung und Ruhe im Wechsel brachte. Ein Tag in Trollebo ein Tag ein Ausflug, ein Tag Trollebo, ein Tag ein Ausflug...Die Seenlandschfat ist auch ganz bezaubernd. Natürlich ist das Haus sehr einfach und überhaupt nicht luxuriös, aber genau das macht es auch so leicht uns sorgenfrei! Ein bisschen wie Camping aber doch eben komfortabler. Toll auch das Klohäusschen mit Fenster am Ende des Gartens mitten im Wald (keine Angst, nicht zu weit!). Viel Freiheit und leichtes Leben! Wir hatten halt auch super Glück mit dem Wetter.
    Danke Trollebo!

  • Such an incredible lovely, peaceful place... thanks Sara and Magnus we had a wonderful time with the whole family (6 people) in the middle of the nowhere ;). We spent lots of time swimming and paddling in the nearby lake, walking through the forrest picking up blueberries and mushrooms, looking for elks (didn't found one) and BBQ'ing... like vacancies in Sweden should be! The weather was the best we could wish - that we didn't played all our board games we brought ;) Sara and Magnus were able to visit us and we had a lovely coffee break together with the best "sommar kaka" ever and it seems like we already know eachother since a long time! Thank you for taking care of us, sending advices what to do around and we hope we'll see eachother again... there is always an open door for you in Hamburg! All the best for your family! :)

Hello everybody, I am a mother of five, brand new on Airbnb! I find this community very exciting, because me and my husband owns a small cottage that we don´t have the time to use as much as it deserves. Since we have a large family, and we love to have all our kids and their friends around us, we have made sure there are plenty of beds in our cottage, so there´s room for many, even though the cottage is small. I really hope you also will find our little treasure in the wood! Yours sincerely / Sara
