10 Quirkiest Places To Stay in the World
We cover a lot of wacky lodgings, so we were pleasantly surprised to discover a few never-before-seen establishments on Travelphant’s list, 10 Quirkiest Place To Stay in the World. In no particular order, here they are.
Beckham Creek Cave Haven, Arkansas, US
Located in the Ozarks, you can spend the night in this is natural living cave. The pictures look spectacular and you are surely staying in the lap of luxury here. Or at least the lap of a big dark hole.
La Balade des Gnomes, Durbuy, Belgium
We’ve all heard the story of the Trojan horse – a hollow wooden horse that the Greek army built in which to hide soldiers and thus gain entry into Troy. Now, you can actually stay in one. Designed and built by architect cum hotelier Mr Noël, La Balade des Gnomes boasts 10 rooms that are guaranteed to capture the imagination.
Molja Lighthouse, Aalesund, Norway
If you’re looking of a secluded getaway and some great views, look no further than the Molja Lighthouse, situated at the entrance to the harbor of Aalesund in Norway. This 150-year-old lighthouse is only 3m in diameter but no space is wasted.
Survival Capsule, Scheveningen, Netherlands
Fancy an escape from everyday life? Bob away your woes in an original survival capsule – dating back to 1972 – off the coast of Scheveningen, located just outside The Hague in the Netherlands. Despite measuring only 4.25m in diameter, the escape pod offers luxuries in the form of high quality linen, fresh fruit and a DVD-player with a small movie collection. Perhaps not for the claustrophobic, however.
