Welcome to Gimmengläntan – where your greatest Nordic dreams are about to come true! This adorable cabin compound is a year-round sanctuary where sun-soaked summers, crisp-aired autumns, snowy wonderland winters and the bright floral blooms of spring all await for your enjoyment. With two cabins filled with whimsical artistic surprises and a sprawling ½ acre plot within the forest, adventure is right around the corner.

Hey there! My name is Shannon, the Founder of Bargain Homes Abroad. I'm obsessed with finding properties with the perfect blend of old world charm + affordability. As a BHA Plus! member, you'll have 24/7 access to hundreds of properties on our members-only website. No waiting for a weekly email - with BHA Plus!, new hand-picked properties are available every few days. For immediate access, I invite you to upgrade today.

Surrounded by the Dalälven River just a short 5-minute stroll away, this property has a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor intrigue. The exteriors on the property are bright and cheerful, with a warm coral paint job and fresh balsam green accents on the trim. The interiors, however, are the real showstopper. At first glance,  you’re met with the most magical, artistic and creative vibes, which continue throughout both cabins. The décor is a mix of Moulin Rouge show hall aesthetic with eclectic surprises around every corner. From velvety drapes to fringed standing lamps and everything in between, these cabins will have you wandering through every room to peek at the treasures stored there.  

Stepping inside the first cottage into the living room, you’re met with new wood flooring and warm (yet super modern) wood burning stove, along with the bright central window, are all there to welcome you in. As you can tell there is ample space in the living quarters to house even the largest of musical instruments, should you decide to bring your own cello or drum set along.

The bright and airy kitchen has all of the newest features, including a brand new stove, beautiful floral accented cabinetry and burgundy backsplash that gives the room a warm and inviting feel.

The kitchenette and living/dining area in the lower cottage also got a fresh glow up recently, with gorgeous red floral wallpaper and wrap-around windows that let in streams of light. Green paint on the brickwork behind the stove also creates a cozy haven, offset by the wooden bar-style table and wood plank walls that provides a rustic cabin vibe while also feeling newly renovated. And seriously, check out those velvet and wooden rocking chairs.

The floral accents continue into the dreamy bedroom space, where pinks, greens and reds abound. The details are seriously unmatched. Between the blush walls, floral wallpapers, bed nook and white paneled ceilings, I can't decide which detail I love the most.

With recent upgrades to the property that include new appliances, redistributed electricity, a new well in the yard and heat pumps in both houses, the glow up has been real, and you'll be cozy even when winter throws its chilliest punches. The outside also got a facelift, when a handful of trees closest to the property were removed to let the sunshine flood the yard.

Beyond the cabins, the forest also provides a whimsical respite throughout the year, whether you’re hunting mushrooms in season, chasing butterflies and dragonflies and the promise of spritely fairies in summer, growing your own vegetables in the fertile ground of summer or (if you’re brave enough) soaking in the outdoor tub with water headed by the boiler wall while you stare up at the starry sky above.  The magic and enchantment that Gimmengläntan offers is enough to make you want to pack up your caravan and move to Sweden immediately.
