Frequently Asked Questions

About the concept

What are Slow Cabins?

Slow Cabins are mobile & off-the-grid eco cabins that are completely self-sufficient in terms of water and electricity. They are located in secret locations close to home and there is no internet, so you can slow down and get away from the stress of everyday life.

Where are Slow Cabins located?

Our Slow Cabins are placed in unique locations in the middle of nature. We keep the exact location a secret from our guests until two weeks before their departure. Don’t worry, they are a maximum of 2 hours’ drive from the big cities in the Benelux, so there is always one near you!

Do you need a car to get to a Slow Cabin?

Of course not! We are committed to ecology, so all our Slow Cabins are easily accessible by public transport.

Can I bring my pet?

We love animals. However, for hygienic reasons and possible allergies with other guests, we do not allow pets in and around the Slow Cabins at this moment.

How many people can stay in a Slow Cabin?

Do you have a large family or would you like to book with some friends! Great! Up to 4 people can stay in a Slow Cabin because we want to minimise the environmental impact of our cabins.

We can provide a cot for your baby in our Time for Family cabins. If you wish to include one, please select this option under ‘extra services’ when placing your reservation.

Vouchers and reservations

How can I book a Slow Cabin?

We work with an automatic booking system. This way, you can easily and securely reserve for your Slow Cabin online. Do you have a specific request or simply want to make a booking using the good old-fashioned bank transfer? No problem. Just contact us via the contact form or directly via info@slowcabins.com and we will send you all the details.

Why is there a minimum stay of 2 nights?

We believe that you can only truly disconnect when you escape from your daily routine for more than one evening.

Why can I only check in on Monday, Wednesday or Friday?

Due to logistical complexity it is not possible to receive check-ins every day. Set check-in days allow us to maintain our high standards of excellence.

Can I gift a Slow Cabins experience?

Of course, you can purchase a voucher here.

Can I extend the validity of my voucher?

Your voucher is valid for one year from the date of purchase. The expiration date is only relevant for the use of the code. You can perfectly make a reservation for after the expiration date.

If you still wish to extend the validity of your voucher, we charge a minimum admin fee of 40€ (6-month extension) or 75€ (12-month extension). Just send us a mail at info@slowcabins.com and we will help you get this sorted out immediately!

About your stay

What's included in a Slow Cabin?

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

Each Slow Cabin comes with a queen-sized bed(s) (including bed linen), a bathroom with a hot shower and toilet, a wood-burning stove in the living room, a small kitchen with a mini fridge and two burner stove, dishware, cookware, and outdoor barbecue with grilling grate and outdoor seating. Everything is included to light the barbecue.

Most kitchen and bathroom amenities, such as herbs, koffie, tea, soap, towels, are also included.

By offering only the bare necessities, we offer our guests more peace and happiness.

Are there also activities in and around a Slow Cabin?

Absolutely! At least two weeks before your stay, we will send you an essential guide with information about your Slow Cabin, local tips & recommendations, as well as fun activities you can do around the cabin surroundings.

Are the cabins safe?

Safety is our topmost priority. Our cabins are located in a safe and accessible spot in the middle of nature. Local authorities are aware of your stay and we also always leave the telephone numbers and addresses of the local emergency services in the cabin. There is also a first aid kit and an emergency fire extinguisher inside the cabin.

Can I book any meals or have food delivered?

Slow Cabins does not offer any food services as of this moment due to the complex logistics of our concept. You can either bring food with you, buy local produce in the nearby shops or eat out in one of our recommended restaurants. You can find all our tips and recommendations in our brochures which you receive prior to your stay.
