Lakeside Tiny House in Estonia with Over-sized Reflective Windows

This is a very unique cabin that almost blends right into the scenery because of the large floor to ceiling windows. The tiny home literally looks like a large mirrored box! It’s located in Jõelähtme, Estonia, which is in Northern Europe, just south of Finland.

When you look at the cabin though, you can see the reflection of the scenery gaze back at you. How incredible and unique is that! This tiny home is a vacation spot by ÖÖD Hötels Jõeranna so you can actually book a stay here via Anne over at this Airbnb listing. Take a look below and let us know what you think in the comments, please!

The shower with a view, it’s like you are showering outside. All you need is nature sounds. Turn on the Calm app, lol!

This is what it could look like in the wintertime. Isn’t it amazing how it reflects? It must be sort of like what is used as far as glass goes in tall skyscrapers.

    I love this place. The interior is so sleek and clean but welcoming—with everything you need. As a person who loves to sleep beneath the stars, this is my dream. For Americans this might take some adjusting because it requires a more open attitude towards what privacy means … I lived in Estonia for many years, and it’s nature is so beautiful and pure and the people are equally open and lovely. I’d love to lie in a forest by a stream there 😊

    This place looks amazing! It would be great to be able to see floor plans/building costs/etc for the beautiful tiny houses like this that you post, or links to that information. Nice for those of us contemplating building our own tiny homes 🙂

      Hi Lynn! We always try to include those things when we can — in the cases of Airbnbs like this, though, the information usually isn’t readily available, I’m afraid.

    Beautiful! Would need no neighbors for this home. LMAO! Love this home.

    This is fabulous, although the toilet and shower would take a little getting used to. Love the openness, the closeness to nature. I would love to stay there!

      Haha yes it’s a little freaky at first, for sure!

    This almost disappears into the surrounding! LOVE IT! And I doubt neighbors would be a problem, because the glass is reflective on the outside like mirrors, and see-through on the inside, like interrogation rooms….LOL! And the interior is beautiful — but with all that light, how could it not be?

    How safe for birds?

    How much

    Definitely, no dust catching curtains which make a a tiny space smaller just nothing.
    Easy to clean, no wall paint, view only.
    There must be a great vent system because I didn’t see anything which can be opened and entrance isn’t shown.
    Wondering if this reflective glass keeps invisibility from outside at night time when using lights keeps its ability. For sure it has it’s price, too.

      I’d love to stay here, but yes, I hope the window-walls retain privacy at night with the lights on inside. And I hope there is good heating and cooling; how well do those windows insulate? Looks like a beautiful location.

    • Natalie C. McKee

      I have to imagine it keeps being reflective at night — otherwise, yikes!

    How many birds are going to run into the windows?

    Love this tiny house. It would be perfect for me. Would like to have more details in regards to the property. Thank you.

    Reflective surfaces that large are not a good idea if there is wildlife of any kind around. How many birds are going to crash into that house?

      Good point!

    I would be worried about some animals (namely deer, elk, mtn sheep) seeing themselves and thinking it was another animal challenging them. Then putting their heads down and ramming into the mirrored windows. Provision for this?

  • Theresa Perdue

    What a fabulous idea! I would be a bit uneasy using the bathroom/shower at first but it would be worth getting used to. That’s a good question about the dear and such fighting themselves but I imagine it was discussed before building it. All in all it looks like a fun place to stay 😍

    • Natalie C. McKee
      October 5, 2020, 2:03 pm

      Haha I agree about the bathroom!
