Do you ever dream of escaping to a cozy retreat to get some rest, recharge, and—perhaps most importantly—catch up on all the books you’ve been meaning to read? That’s quite literally what the ”Bookworm Cabin” in Poland was built to do. 

Bartłomiej Kraciuk, an entrepreneur, and Marta Puchalska-Kraciuk, an architect, first came up with the idea for the cabin because they wanted a place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of life. However, they realized that they would only use the cabin a few times a year, so they decided to make it a rental that others could enjoy as well. 

The cabin is part of the sand dunes called Wydmy Lucynowsko-Mostowieckie in Mazovia, Poland. Surrounded by the natural wooded area, the 377-square-foot cabin—made of natural woods like pinewood and spruce—blends in with the environment.

“By creating this space we wanted to implement comfort and detailed design but be as close to nature as possible,” the owners wrote in a press release. “The cabin gives you a place to read books in peace of mind all year round. For us less really means more.”

“Peace” also means disconnecting to the outside world, so the cabin is not equipped with Wi-Fi and the cell reception is spotty. “That gives you the perfect occasion to put away your phone. There even is a yellow box on the shelf where you can easily store it out of sight,” the owners said.

The Bookworm Cabin can comfortably sleep two guests, with one large bed upstairs and a fully equipped bathroom. Downstairs, there’s a small kitchen with an electric stove, pots and pans for cooking, and basic ingredients. Plenty of furniture for lounging is on the main floor as well, which is perfect for diving into the many books that await guests on the shelves.
