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 need this in my life, even at 26 having lived in NYC, London, Beijing & Shanghai (as great as those cities are) I feel like I need to unplug from city life sometimes. Will be keeping an eye on this 🙌🏾

I'm a fan of this idea. I would try this but it seems they're only in Belgium right now.
Max Berger
@rrhoover Try https://getaway.house/ 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.
Ryan Hoover
@bergermax nice tip! Thanks, Max.

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)

Americans have been doing this for 2+ years. www.getaway.house

This is one of the coolest things I have ever seen... If you came to the States I would use this regularly.
Dan Dan
US has a similar service, I believe it's around NY area, but I can't remember the name. Anyone?

@noblepublius Thanks. Exactly what I was looking for.
Philip Lakin
This both sounds awesome and like the begining of a horror movie.
Mike Way
Too bad they are not in the US.

My dream goal is to one day stay in a cabin in the woods. After seeing so many cabins photos on Instagram, I am happy to see someone building a way to stay in mystery cabins. I am a fan of cabins design 👏

@mrcalexandre Are you speaking of cabinporn.com because I am obsessed with it, and if somehow you missed that you're gonna become obsessed too

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.
Drew Meyers
Love the concept.
Josh Best
This actually seems really cool. Although it reminds me of the movie “The Strangers” 😳 haha I’d totally go stay in one of these though.
Duarte Martins
Need this in Portugal
Fernando Ifran
Really like this idea. I wonder if you can bring your dog. And I'm curious about how the buy option works. Is it also limited to Belgium? Do they provide help in searching for the plot? Prices? So many questions :)

@fernandoifran Unfortunately, no dogs allowed per the founder’s message in comments above :-(

I love this idea and I am a big fan of the “mystery travel destination” concept. I have used “Pack Up + Go” (https://www.packupgo.com/#intro) based out of Pittsburgh, PA (USA) several times. They offer 3-day weekend mystery trips via planes, trains and automobiles. No international travel offered due to complexity with getting visas, etc. and maintaining the mystery. I look forward to checking this out!
