The zen retreat is like a “battery charging station for humans.”

If you’ve ever dreamed of having your own private hotel, this is your chance to make that dream come true.

Vipp, a Swedish company that originally dealt with steel production, has created a beautifully designed, comfortable, livable retreat for people who want to get away from the city. All you really have to do is choose the spot for it to be built.

Vipp’s CEO Kasper Egelund calls it a “battery charging station for humans.”

The just under 600-square-foot nature shelter is a little like a camper meets a design-minded hotel that stands out starkly in the wilderness. The structure has two levels, where only the bedroom and bathroom are shielded for privacy. The living room and kitchen, however have an excellent floor-to-ceiling view of Swedish forest.

The entire structure comes fully equipped with Vipp products like lighting fixtures, linens, a toilet and shower, and even basic furniture like tables and a bed. The shelter can house four people at a time. While you can’t order room service or jaunt down to a restaurant, there is a full kitchen and a fireplace.

Each shelter takes a production time of six months, but only three to five days to assemble once the location is chosen. But all the high design and streamlined production comes with a heavy price tag. People can purchase one of these retreats of their very own for 485,000 euro (just under $565,000).

However, if you would prefer to only stay one night at a prefab Vipp shelter, you also have that option. According to the Vipp website, every year the company opens up for a limited number of bookings in already constructed retreats.

According to DesignBoom, staying in these retreats costs a whopping 1,000 euro (just over $1,100) per night.
