Shoveling snow from your driveway, and bundling up in 4 layers of clothes before ever leaving the house isn’t always convenient, but the beauty of winter is so worth it! When snow covers the ground, icicles hang from trees and frost nips in the breeze, entire scenery transforms into a majestic fairytale land.
A lonely, isolated house surrounded by nothing but natural beauty is intriguing to look at 365 days of the year. Yet, when you add a blanket of fresh powder snow to a remote cottage tucked in some tranquil corner of the world it becomes that much more beautiful to admire.
Enjoy these 25 lonely little houses lost in majestic winter scenery, located from Lapland to the Swiss Alps, and from Poland to Norway.
