Utter Inn

Utter Inn - Floating house on the lake

When you wake up in the Utter Inn you will think you are still dreaming. After all, fish should not be swimming past your window, and that cloud is actually a jellyfish? What’s going on here? Then you remember you booked a room in the unusual underwater hotel by Swedish artist, Mikael Genberg. For extra kitsch value, the above-water entrance looks just like a traditional Swedish house, except it’s in the middle of a lake. There were plans for spa treatments to be provided by local Mermaids but there was trouble with their union. You can spend your days at the unique Utter Inn, swimming in the clear waters or paddling your canoe to an uninhabited island for a feeling of pure privacy. The peace and quiet is astounding. This is certainly a place to be alone or spend quality time with those close to you. There are no amenities so you may want to bring your own drinks and food but breakfast and water is provided by King Neptune… I mean a guy called Sven.
