If you've ever wanted to just disappear for a while, there's a hotel in Sweden that can make that happen. Treehotel is a collection of rooms suspended 13 to 20 feet above the forest floor near the village of Harads. One of the rooms, the Mirrorcube, is a 13-by-13-by-13-foot box with mirrored external walls, creating the effect of invisibility.
The Mirrorcube is accessible by bridge and furnished in the minimalist style for which Scandinavia is renowned. Sleek birch walls and floors provide a cosy interior, helped by underfloor heating during the colder months. An electrically powered, odorless "freezing toilet" takes care of bathroom business.
A night at the Mirrorcube for you and a companion will run you just under USD$700. That includes breakfast at the nearby Britta's Pensionat, a restaurant with a wild-game buffet.
