Norrqvarn Hotel - Stay In A Giant Mushroom Or Tree Stump House In SwedenNorrqvarn  

Norrqvarn Hotel is set in an old mill on the banks of Göta Canal, Sweden. Surrounded by woods and fields, the hotel seems pretty idyllic, yet nothing ordinary.

But… there are a couple of surprises hiding around the corner.

In a nod to the youngest guests (and those of us who still feel like children at heart), the hotel has created magical custom-made houses in the forest.

You can choose between giant mushrooms or large tree stumps, all of which had been carved in wood by an artist, Sören Niklasson.

There’s also the Lock Keeper’s Cottage by the canal for something more conventional but still charming. It comes with two bedrooms, your own garden and barbecue, and a whole lot of adorable vintage details.

The best time to stay at Norrqvarn Hotell is during the Midsummer Festival (celebrated in June - and yes, that's the famous Midsommar we all know from Ari Aster's cult movie), a day full of singing, dancing, and festivities.
