    Very nicely built, in a totally isolated place, as promised. Very comfortable and zen.


    Not much. Maybe, there were missing plates that could go in the microwave?

    We loved our week-end in a slow cabin. Waking in the middle of a wood, with a fire next to you is awesome.

I think this is a really smart idea. Living in London one of my fave treats is escaping the city for a weekend in nature. I love the idea of a cabin getaway, never stayed in one but imagine its like camping but better 🏕 have you tried this yet? @solomon_teach What else do people do to escape the city? 🤔

@abadesi I haven’t but thought it was such a great idea! I like the fact it’s close to home so makes escaping very easy. Also, they don’t tell you the location, it’s kept secret until after you book. I like that as sometimes the choice can be paralysing!

I'm a fan of this idea. I would try this but it seems they're only in Belgium right now.

@rrhoover Try Boston based, been building tiny homes and putting them in the middle of no where for a few years now. I think they have a few out west already.

I’ll try it out and let yo guys know how it was 😜😉 From 🇩🇪 Germany it’s not that far. I hope I can bring my dog 🐶, though. BTW, just informed the makers through Instagram, hopefully they can answer a few questions here.

@anderiep Hi Paul, thanks for your interest in our Slow Cabins concept. Unfortuntely, dogs (we love them btw!) are not allowed due to hygiene, delicate materials and allergies for other guests. You are of course more than welcome to check our cabins! Slow greetings, Xavier (Founder Slow Cabins)

It looks like a very good idea; but even the English linked site has lots of (I presume) Dutch language intermingled, which makes it hard to navigate. It's also very unclear where the location is. It's a bit vague to just say somewhere in Belgium.
