ForRest is a newly built & designed off-grid cottage with large glass sections that gives you the feeling of being out in the middle of the forest even though you´re indoors with all the conveniences of today. Wintertime there´s a chance to experience the Northern Lights.
It´s your own space in the forest. Use the freedom to roam to get into our wilderness. Watch the wildlife, pick berries/mushrooms, yoga, go for walks or a run. Here you´ll find the peace & quiet that are rare to find to day.

The space
A wise man I knew used to talk about contentment, a feeling that perhaps few people experience daily today. His wise words landed deep within me and in my dream of building a cabin in the woods where people can feel full joy of life and experience our great forests. All to yourself. Bring the person or persons who matter most of all in your life and experience the peace and quiet and wildlife in the Swedish forest or use the peaceful place for yoga, meditation or creative creating. Let the cooking take time and may be the only goal you have for the day. Make food indoors on the wood- or gas stove or over an open fire down by the stream.

Take the opportunity to fish, pick mushrooms and blueberries right outside the house - the forest offers many pleasures and the range varies with the season.

Staying in ForRest is modern "back to basic". You need to heat the house using the wood stove. In winter, if the night has been cold it will be chilly downstairs. Then you light the fire in the wood stove to heat up the house again. In the meantime, I recommend you snuggle up in the sofa under a blanket, drinking coffee or tea, looking for animals and socialize. ;-) Slippers can be good to bring during the cold season.

You have the Swedish wildlife just outside the door and this is you own spot.
No neghbours or trafic, just the sounds of the trees and the small stream running 100 m below the cottage. The accommodation is comfortable and modern technologies have been used to create an environment with the standard you would expect at home even though it is a long way both to the municipal water supply, and the public net of electricity. The water comes from a source deep in the ground and the electricity comes from the sun's rays.

Where you’ll be

Ovanåker NO, Gävleborgs län, Sweden

You´ll stay in in the middle of the forest in the small and beautiful village Langhed with around 200 inhabitants.
2012 the Halsingland Farmhouses were inscribed on UNESCO´s World Heritage List under the name "Decorated Farmhouses of Halsingland". In Langhed we have the two biggest farms represented on the list of the World heritage; Jon-Lars and Pallars. During the summer you can get guided tours in them. Our part of Sweden has got a lot of good quality forests and that’s why the farmers could build so big. ForRest is built by the same forests as my ancestors build those magnificent houses 200 years ago.
The fishing and wildlife is good and we have a lot of good craftsmen.

I'm a Swedish woman who loves to explore new places and to meet new people. I've got two children and I mostly travel with them or/and my partner Jocke.
I also rent out a house that I've built in the Swedish forest on Airbnb and I think Airbnb is great! (ForRest in Alfta, Sweden)

During your stay

I want you to love the Swedish forest as much as I do. I´m living on a farm about 4 km from the cabin and work Monday-Friday about 14 km away in Alfta.
You will have your own privacy but Im always available for questions and if you need help in some way.
