Tucked away in the landscape only an hour away from Göteborg, Haus Kilstrand is the perfect base to explore many of the sights on the West Coast and southern part of Sweden. Build entirely out of timber this cabin is painted in the traditional swedish fall red color. Skilfully restored by a German husband and wife duo and they have perfectly managed to create the charm of a swedish cabin but with the right amount of modern touches to keep it cosy and comfortable.
The living room and the dining area with a modern fully equipped kitchen is the social heart of the house. There are two double bedrooms and an optional sofa bed in the living room that can accommodate two additional guests. The beautiful large windows flood the living space and bedrooms with light and offer stunning views over the lake and seclusive nature.
The living space opens directly out to a terrace. Equipped with an outdoor grill this is the perfect spot to lounge and dine, while enjoying the long days of midnight sun. A small path leads directly from the house down to the lake and it definitely calls for a dip before heading back to the warmth of the sauna. The cabin shares common access and boat facilities with the owner’s second cabin.
Why we love it?
We like the stunning views, the traditional falu red color, the flood of light through the windows. In fact this idyllic cabin is spot on.
