Cozy 83m² house 200m from a beautiful and wild 11km² lake. Included is a large Sauna + boat with electric motor. The lake has idyllic islands to explore and is perfect for fishing and swimming. There are no other houses for a couple of kilometers! It has a sunny garden and endless forests around. The house was renovated in 2019 with ecologic materials. It is Off-Grid, electricity comes from a solar-system (max 1000W at 230V), water is coming from a well next to the house. READ THE WHOLE PROFILE

The space
The house is renovated, mostly ecological and recycled material was used. The rooms: First Sleeping room 160x200cm bed. this room also has a fire place. Second sleeping room 120x200cm bed + additional 90x200cm bed if needed. The kitchen is spacious, has a 2-flame gas stove and an old iron wood stove with 3 plates + oven. In the cozy living room you will find a large comfortable sofa to relax / read a book etc. The bathroom has a gravity-fed shower, the water is heated by a gas heater so you can have warm showers. The shower tank has to be filled manually from the well (usually two buckets per person, depends on how long you shower). The house is in a water-protection area, so only ecologically friendly soaps can be used. The toilet is outside of the house. It is a compost toilet where pee and poo is seperated to prevent smell. The house has electricity from a solar system. It provides enough energy so you have light in the whole house, can charge your phones + laptop etc. It does NOT provide enough energy for a hairdryer/water-boiler and everything else that converts electricity into heat (there is a classic coffee-making device in the house, so don't worry).

The large wooden Sauna is directly next to the house (and well). It is fired by a wood stove, wood is provided.

In front of the house is a fire place (and grill for barbecuing) with wooden benches around. There are also outdoor chairs and tables so you can eat outside and enjoy the sun.

Between the house and the lake is grassland and lots of apple trees (you can try them all: some are sour, some are super tasty).

The boat is parked down at the lake, it comes with an electric engine + battery (for 3-4 hours driving, depending on waves and speed). Next to the boat is a tiny peninsula stretching into the lake covered by grass that is great for a picnic / tanning / relaxing etc.

there is no fridge in the house, but there is a storage cellar under the house that was used in the old times to store food that needs to be cooled. it remains fairly cool even in summer.

NOTE: If you book in late Autumn or Winter max. 2- 3 people are recommended! (because only the ground-floor can be heated,not the upper floor) so you can only use bedroom 1 and the sofa. In summer it's no problem because you don't have to heat the house, it's well insulated.

Where you’ll be

Bodaskog, Kalmar län, Sweden

There are more than 20 lakes in the community. Some are huge (lake Läen is stretching for more than 11km² kilometers) some are tiny. All of them are idyllic and quiet. The area around the house is nice for hiking and bicycling, several beaches and barbecue places can be found in the close surrounding (thanks to swedish "Allemansrätten" you can use all of them). 50mins by car south you will find the Unesco city Karlskrona and its archipelago with hundreds of islands. 50mins east you find Kalmar and the beautiful Island Öland with castles, beaches, cliffs and much more. The biggest city in the surrounding is Växjö (30min by car). The closest grocery store is at a gasstation in Eriksmala 15min by car, the closest full size Supermarket is in Lessebo (12km).
