We are a small meditation retreat with quiet, simple and comfortable accommodations situated in a large forest garden. Since we live within the Glaskogen Nature Reserve, naturally you will be surrounded by wildlife.
Accommodations vary from a newly renovated Guesthouse, a cottage from 1900 (the farfar-stuga), an antique wooden stolpbod hut from 1760, and a spacious room in the main building, which is a red Swedish wooden house built in the local traditional style.
The forest garden is surrounded by large spruce and silver birch trees, and has apple trees, berries, a mall vegetable garden, a large pond surrounded by flowers as well as plenty of open space and a big fire circle to relax and enjoy.
During retreat programs the guest rooms and bathrooms will be shared, although all rooms have a washbasin. We strive to be as eco-sensitive and earth friendly as possible in the provision and maintenance of our personal facilities. Therefore we buy what we cannot grow ourselves from local shops and growers and our endeavors strive to help preserve the nature reserve we live in.
The property is non-smoking, alcohol-free (during retreats) and vegetarian. If you are vegan or gluten-free please let us know. Pets, as much as we love and cherish them, will have to stay home as we have no separate facilities for them during our retreats.
The Stuga and Guesthouse are for rent all year round. Both are renovated, self-catering and fully equipped. If you are planning to attend one of our Lakeside Retreat programs and would like to spend more time in Sweden before or after the retreat program there is the option of booking a longer stay here.
Giving back to the Nature Reserve
Included in the accommodation fee during retreats is a small donation for the use of the Glaskogen Nature Reserve. We use this fee to donate to the maintenance and upkeep of the Glaskogen Nature Reserve with its 300 km hiking trails, its windbreaks, resting places, overnight cabins, rubbish bins, dry toilets and firewood which we are all free to use.
