Swamp Chalet, a cosy little cabin by a lake

The location is pretty hard to find however, it was worth it. It's a little chalet, so the visit was rather short but it is pretty. Unfortunately, the owner has taken out all of the furniture on the bottom floor. The top floor is still worthwhile with a little living room area. When you're outside you do need to be careful as some boards are quite unstable and a couple are even missing.
There's also a fisher man's cabin next to it which contained some cool items as well.

Moeilijk te vinden locatie, maar wel heel leuk qua setting.

Chalet zelf heeft z'n beste tijd gehad en is redelijk instabiel: er ontbreken vloerplaten.

Leuk om te doen als je in de buurt bent, maar niet om er speciaal voor te rijden.

Swamp chalet

Tijdens de wandeltocht naar swamp chalet nog een leuke andere ontdekking gedaan.

De foto's vanbinnen in het chalet zijn niet de mooiste ,
maar hey we moeten allemaal ervaring opdoen om erin te beteren toch?😏🤣

Ook weer heel blij dat ik deze locatie heb kunnen doen, maar vermoed dat ze het helemaal hebben opgeruimd, er stonden al vuilzakken met afval in, heel veel is al weggedaan. Of meegenomen dat laat ik in het midden! Stonden ook al houten planken enzovoort klaar, dus wees maar snel als je deze nog gezien wilt hebben!

Net alsof je meespeelt in een film.
Hier en daar zijn er wat planken los en hoef je goed uit te kijken waar je trapt.
Niet zo groot, maar wel een aanrader!

Prachtig verlaten chalet !
Zeker een kijkje waard.
Het ligt best afgelegen dus het is even goed zoeken.
Maar het is een leuke wandeling en je komt nog andere verlaten hutjes tegen.
Zeker een aanrader !

Petite exploration assez tranquille, beaucoup de marche pour y accéder mais l'endroit est vraiment beau.

Le chalet, bien qu'au milieu de l'eau est quant à lui facile d'accès et est resté totalement dans son jus.

Het is een leuke plek als je een kleine uitstap wil doen. De plek is niet groot en vanbinnen is er niet zoveel te zien. De chalet zelf is wel mooi! Let wel op voor de losse planken boven het water. Deze chalet word volgens mij nog onderhouden want ze was enorm proper.

Swamp Chalets

Ideal location if you're in for a hike.
It is actually located in a swamp and before you get there you have to walk on the countryside a bit.
Maybe it is possible to get there with a car but I wouldn't recommend it.
The first Chalet is made of wood and is standing on poles right in the middle of the swamp.
The water is coloured dirty yellow and if it was not in Belgium you could expect a crocodile showing up every minute, as if it was the bayou or some similar place.
The first chalet is very little and has not much to show, at the time of my visit I found the smell of cigarettes so I think the local kids are using it to hang out.
Because I read there was another chalet, the Carolus one, I started searching for it.
I almost gave up until I saw a dark hole in a green mountain, the second chalet is made of concrete and completely overgrown with plants.
The little home was built on solid ground and has still everything inside of it but in great disorder.
For me it is unthinkable how one would spend holidays in a humid and dark environment like that swamp,in the summertime it must be a mosquito paradise.
Standing on their own the chalets are far from my best urbex trip but the walk in nature and the adventure of finding them make up for it a lot.

Courte visite de ces deux chalets isolés de tout. Visite très sympa et une bonne possibilité de faire des photos assez chouette.

Swamp Chalet

14 oktober 2019,

Waarom deze chalet achtergebleven is blijkt onduidelijk, maar wat een mooie locatie!
Dit is een van de weinige die gespaard is gebleven van vandalisme!
