Found this on the website for horizontal hives...Layen hives to be specific.
Lots of free plans on how to build hive, frames, stands.
And then there is the "bee bed".....

No thanks!

(In case people were wondering, the there's a beehive underneath a coffin-sized "bed" so you can sleep feeling the vibrations and listening to the hum of the bees, all without risk of being stung)

Any idea how to find the nearest B&B&B? Bed, breakfast, bees. Would like to try it. Not something one normally gets a chance to do.

Sleep?  No thanks, but this would likely be a great place to meditate!  I can't imagine how much those vibrations could help the body.
