The tiny cabin that I’m showing you today is a masterpiece to me.

It was originally built in 1912 by Swedish homesteaders using local materials.

Recently the structure has been restored using the same principals.

Local and reclaimed materials were used to rebuild it and the cabin now serves as an inexpensive guest cottage for friends and family of the owner.

I know the title seems crazy, but it’s true…

This is a tiny house where half of it is under water.

And it’s in the shores of Lake Malaren in Sweden. And actually, it’s an Inn called Utter Inn.

It’s like a garden shed with solar panels floating in the middle of the lake that packs a kitchen, dining area, outdoor deck, and an underwater bedroom that is submerged 10 feet. It even has windows down there so you can see the water life!

How cool is this??

When you stay at the Inn you are brought there by boat (of course) from the port of Vasteras and then you are in private solitude armed with a row boat and a telephone. Rates are around $160 per night in US dollars.

Here’s a little excerpt from someone who has actually stayed there.

We had an enchanting getaway at the Utter Inn, a tiny little red house plopped in the middle of a lake outside Stockholm. Staff drove us out to our little villa on a high speed inflatable, and left us with plenty of fresh water and a plentiful breakfast. Conditions are camp-like (propane stove, latrine) but the experience was unforgettable. You open a hatch and climb down a ladder to your sleeping quarters, (two twin beds) and on all four walls are panorama windows allowing you to see the little fishies outside your submerged bedroom. Incredible! They also provided us with a raft, where we rowed to our own little island. The Utter Inn is the brainchild of an artist who also has a tree house inn called the Woodpecker, and is planning a little red Swedish house on the moon! ~ Trip Advisor
