Let it grow with the flow 🌱 Are you also participating in the #MaaiMeiNiet campaign? The whole month of May we do not mow our grass. But also during the rest of the year we prefer to keep our grass as natural as possible. That way flowers have room to grow, bees find more food to eat and biodiversity and ecosystems sustain themselves.⁠

Not only does tall grass bring the nature experience to a whole new level, it also helps in our global fight against climate change and severe heat. 🌻🍀 A weekend away in one of our cabins lets you experience every tiny detail of the wonderful nature around.⁠

Keep an eye on our newsletter and blogpost if you want to find out what Maai Mei Niet at Slow Cabins looked like.⁠

About a Slow Cabins weekend

WHAT EXACTLY ARE ‘SLOW CABINS®’?

Slow Cabins® are temporary eco houses that are completely self-sufficient when it comes to water and electricity provisions. They are situated in secret locations close to home and rose from the Slow (travel) movement, more about Slow Travel on our concept page. In a Slow Cabin there is no Internet as well, which means that you slow down and break free from the stress of everyday life.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ‘SELF-SUFFICIENT’?

Self-sufficient lodging is unique. Not only are you going back to basics, you also gain more respect for nature and the environment. You become acquainted with the slower pace of nature and learn to accept it as it is.

Upon your arrival, you are given a fully charged battery – charged by solar panels. In addition, you get a substantial water reservoir filled with filtered rainwater. At normal consumption levels, you can live completely self-sufficiently with ‘zero impact’ for several days (even during the winter months). So as your cabin’s battery discharges, yours recharges.

However substantial, your resources are not endless, during your self-sufficient stay, heightened awareness of how you use energy and water is thus essential. Throughout your stay, you can monitor your battery, as well as your rainwater levels, on a display in the Slow Cabin.

Being obligated to keep an eye out for your resource levels raises consciousness and promotes active awareness of your footprint during a your stay. A consciousness, many of our guest take home with them. Off-the-grid vacations are no longer a romantic dream – they’re an absolute reality! Read more on our Off-grid technology on our concept page

WHERE ARE THE SLOW CABINS® LOCATED?

Our Slow Cabins® are set up at temporary locations, which we keep strictly confidential. Don’t worry, they are no further than 2 hours’ drive from the large central cities (Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Liège, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Utrecht and The Hague). So, there is always one in your neck of the woods, pun intended :)!

When you make a reservation, you will receive all the relevant information on your Slow Cabin two weeks before departure. A brochure will tell you how to get there as well as information on activities in and around the cabin, from beautiful walks to cosy local eateries and other surprising slow activities.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN STAY IN A SLOW CABIN?

Our Time for Family cabins are suitable for 4 persons, while our Time for Two cabins are suitable for up to 2 people

Our Time For Family cabins do offer the possibility to bring a baby / toddler. We can provide a baby cot on request. Please select this during your reservation under “extra services”.

HELP, I HAVE TO CANCEL MY STAY!

Oh no, that is too bad! Contact us as soon as possible at info[at]slowcabins.com and we’ll look for a solution together.

CAN I BOOK OR RESERVE MEALS?

Due to the logistical complexity of servicing the Slow Cabins®, it is not yet possible to reserve meals. However, in the cabins, you have access to an equipped kitchen with a small gas burner and a wood BBQ, make sure to pack your chef’s hat.

It is entirely up to you whether you bring food along (or prepare at home to heat up in the cabin), buy daily fresh ingredients in the local shops or to go to a restaurant in the neighbourhood.

In our brochures, which we send to you two weeks before your stay, you will find all kinds of delicious tips on where to buy fresh local produce and where to find the best restaurants.

WHICH AMENITIES ARE PRESENT IN A SLOW CABIN?

Slow Cabins® are relatively small houses (<40 m2) which contain everything you need and nothing you don’t need.

Each Slow Cabin is equipped with a queen-sized bed (including linens), a bathroom with a warm shower and toilet, a wood-burning stove in the living room, a small, furnished kitchen with a refrigerator, a cooktop with two burners, flatware/silverware, cookware and utensils, a wood-burning barbecue (outdoor) with a grill plate and outdoor furniture. Everything you need to light the barbecue is at hand.

The most basic ingredients and supplies for the kitchen and bathroom, such as olive oil, salt and pepper, coffee and tea, soap and towels, are also present. Find a complete overview on everything that is present in the cabins on our Time for Two and Time for Family cabin pages.

Our aim, by only providing the absolute necessities, is to give our guests the gift of peace, quiet and happiness. You can book your cabin here

ARE THERE ACTIVITIES IN AND AROUND THE SLOW CABIN?

Definitely! Two weeks before your stay, we will send you not only the info about the location of your cabin but also a brief guide to all the fun activities that are on offer in the vicinity of your Slow Cabin. What’s more, in the cabin itself you will also find various walking routes and brochures.
