Treehotel opens the worlds largest treehouse, and serves up locally produced gourmet food. But still it’s just like going back into mom’s house and enjoying a home-cooked meal after playing in a treehouse all day, this is the childhood fantasy that we all dream of.
The Treehotel is a world renowned dream property, featured on countless Pinterest boards, bucket lists and in glossy travel magazines.
The owner Kent Lindvall and Britta Jonsson Lindvall were not new to the hotel business. This gracious and hospitable couple have together, been running a well-loved guesthouse and gourmet restaurant called Britta’s Pensionat for many years.
An hour outside of Luleå, located in a pristine forest, in the charming village of Harads, this nearly 100-year-old former pensioner’s guesthouse was lovingly remodeled by Britta and Kent in the 90s. They kept the original character and charm of the original building and converted it into a cozy guesthouse and restaurant. Their vision was to create a guesthouse where visitors were treated like they were family members. Kent and Britta are welcoming hosts who obviously love what they do.
From the white, turn-of-the-century clothes hanging on the clothesline, to the antiques in the rustic dining room, the sights and smells are wonderful. Britta’s has created a time capsule, preserving the charm and grace of a simpler era where people relaxed and enjoyed each other’s company and food was seasonal and authentic.
