Book lovers, this one’s for you.
There are a few tiny cabins near NYC that you can totally curl up in for the weekend, but this may be our favorite.
The “HEMMELIG ROM,” which translates to “secret room” in Norwegian, is a secluded literary sanctuary in Ellenville, New York about two hours from NYC.
It’s located on the outskirts of a vacation home property, as the owner wanted a separate single-room library that would “serve as an intimate respite within the forest and provide an additional guest room,” according to design studio Padron.
They used oak trees that were cut down when the large home was being constructed for the interior of the cabin, and created lots of shelves for all of the books. They added a window that provided a peek outside into the forest, and a cozy wood stove to keep warm.
Unfortunately it isn’t currently available for rental, but definitely one to bookmark for the future (supposedly it pops up on AirBnb from time to time)! Oh, but we can keep admiring these gorgeous photos and dreaming…
