swedish vacation cottage

Cottage 2

I receive a lot of emails inquiring about the Swedish cottage I rented last summer so I thought I might as well post some info here. The cottage is on a darling little island 45 minutes (by bus or an hour by boat) from Stockholm called Resarö in the Stockholm Archipelago.

The tiny island has one store and loads of cute cottages and gardens and is just a 20 minute biking trail to Vaxholm

Situated a miles walk from a bus stop, the one room cottage is furnished and outfitted simply with everything you'll need. You can rent it right here. Oh and the cottage has since been painted black on the outside. You can see more photos of the cottage, Resarö and surrounding areas right here

  1. Oh my goodness, this is really beautiful… i have a thing for scandinavian style… and this is a dream!!! I just adore every single detail!

    Thank you for sharing!

  2. Chelsea, how much is a Sek worth? Does the family speak English? Do you speak English?

    Do you think one could get around there with no Swedish language?


  3. Hey Mary!

    It’s about 6 US dollars to 1 Swedish Krona. I think the cottage was around $2000 for a month ( about the same as what you’d pay to rent an apt in NYC for a month!) but I got a deal staying for a longer period of time and in the off season.

    I don’t speak Swedish but everyone in Sweden speaks English. They LOVE to practice and most have been speaking English since they were about 7 or 8. You can easily get around without knowing the language but it’s fun to learn too. I know only a few words but would love to learn more.

  4. Lady, I have big dreams for Sweden and hope to spend a few months there maybe in two years or so. I don’t know what I’ll be doing while there, but man, I’m going to make this happen!!! Thank you for posting this information!!!
