Stay in a Glass Cabin at Erikson Cottage
72 HOUR CABIN. At Erikson Cottage in West Sweden you can stay in one of two unique glass cabins in the middle of the forest – a perfect way to escape the everyday. Spend carefree days answering the call of the wild and enjoying carefully crafted, high quality food!
Glass Cabins immersed in nature
Welcome to idyllic Erikson Cottage in Ljungsarp in the municipality of Tranemo, 1.5 hours from Gothenburg. You can sleep here in unique glass cabins designed by the architect Jeanna Berger, who also designed the original glass cabin for the 72 Hour Cabin project in Dalsland.
After you check in at the farm the cabins are just a short walk away, completely undisturbed by neighbours or any other noise. These two cabins are also situated away from each other; one sits on a hill with a view over the lake and the other is completely surrounded by the soothing rustle of the forest. Near to the cabins is an outdoor toilet and an outdoor kitchen also designed by Jeanna Berger.

You couldn’t find a more charming place!
The farm lies in the southern part of West Sweden and the Erikson family have lived there for four generations. Built at the end of the 18th century, the farm also offers a sourdough bakery, restaurant and accommodation in an old, traditional Swedish, cottage.
As soon as you arrive at Erikson Cottage you know you have landed in a magical place. The whole farm exudes the air of a Swedish country idyll.
The glass cabins at Erikson Cottage are a fine addition to the farm’s existing high-quality experiences and authentic home cooking, where everything is made from scratch. There is much to enjoy, such as the taste of their sourdough bread made with flour from heirloom varieties of wheat, and Neapolitan pizza, smoking hot from the wood fired oven.
Recharge with rewarding activities
So how do you spend the days in a glass cabin? Well, it depends on what you feel like doing. Sitting by the door with a good book in hand and listening to the sounds of the forest is one idea. Another is to take the boat out on the lake and do some fishing for a while, or to paddle a canoe, or SUP, in the evening sun. You could even book the little wood fired sauna on the lake shore or the hot tub up at the farm.
Another suggestion is to see the area on foot or by bike. The bike trails Ätradalsleden and Sjuhäradsrundan aren’t far away and of course you can wander through the forests around the cabins. It’s also close to Isaberg where they have a lot of fun things to do.
