The 7th Room

Located a lofty ten meters up in the pines, this amazing modern retreat sleeps five and boasts panoramic views and skylights for viewing the magnificent northern lights. The designers of The 7th Room included a brilliant 'experience level' that consists of a terrace made of net which allows pine to grow and spread through it so visitors can climb onto it and either look down below to the forest floor or lie on it to gaze up at the starry sky.
