It's not just a holiday home. It's a place Roy and Berit build themselves (literally) and originally for their own family use. Cottage is very well designed, extremely comfortable and full of good vibes. It gives guests fantastic opportunity to slow down and enjoy world without hustle and bustle of everyday urban life. Highly recommended!
Comfortable and charming, away from it all
Charming property, can see it is used as a family home so lovely touches to all the furnishings - try the indoor swing and hammock. Berit and Roy were lovely hosts, friendly and helpful from when we arrived to leaving. We used the rowing boat to fish on the lake by the cottage and Roy also took us to another lake and showed us how to use a little motor boat. Caught no fish but we enjoyed just pottering on the water just taking in the scenery. Definitely a place to stay to unwind. Weather wasn't great while we were there but it was nice to sit by the wood burning stove in the evening and just read for a change without the temptations of TV or internet. Fun to manage without the basics like no running water, but otherwise was fully furnished with all you need to self-cater. Was a lovely place to stay to start off our holiday in a relaxing way. Would definitely recommend a stay to experience something different, but agree you do need a car to explore the area.
Thank you for visiting. Really a pleasure. Welcome back!
lovely and charming cabin, wonderful nature
we can defintely recommend this stay, if you search for rest and "slow-it-down" in your vacation! we had wounderful 11 days in this cosy and charming cabin, which has everything you need, if you're satisfied with the basics and are able to give up the everyday luxury you're used to. This trip was an real excperience for all of us, showed us, what is really needed and made us forget the rest of the world for almost two weeks.
The cabin itself is so beautiful and decorated with so much love, you feel home right with the first step you take in. Everything was well prepared for us and the host welcomed us freindly, showig us everything. They were available for us during the whole stay, answering questions, giving advice or giving nice tips for great trips, which will not be forgotten. Norway and it's breathtaking nature is all around the cabin and there is so much to see and experience. waterfalls, fjords, mountains and forests were all close and ready to be seen.
we can totally recommend this stay for everyone who wants to relax and escape from the everyday stress, experience nature in its most beautiful.
one advice: you definetly need a car if you want to see more of norway and all its attractions.
calm down and feel home in this lovely place in the middle of nowhere!
We are so pleased to get to know you. You are our kind of guests and exactly what this cabin were ment to host. Thank you and welcome back!
Berit and Roy
We loved it!
Un séjour merveilleux en communion avec la nature
Des hôtes attentionnés et d'une grande gentillesse, une maison décorée avec grand soin, un jardin en pleine nature: un vrai retour aux sources! Tout est fait pour bien s'y sentir et apprécier la vie en famille: pas de TV, de wifi ou autre distraction. On apprend à passer du temps ensemble, tout simplement, à lire au coin du feu, à se balader ou pratiquer du sport (vélo, course) ou à pêcher sur le lac grâce au bateau mis à disposition. Un vrai régal! Mille mercis à nos hôtes.
We really loved to host you. Always smiling and positive. We noticed than you left the house very clean and tidy and made it easy for us. Thank you and we wish you all the best and welcome back. Berit and Roy.
It was great!
The house is beautiful and Berit and Roy are really making an effort to make arrival an experience. They are there when you call for help but if you don’t they leave you alone.
Since there is only some solar power for lighting we barely used our mobiles (which was possible). And the kids started reading books!
With the gas powered stove and fridge and the fireplace you really don’t miss anything. Using the pneumatic shower or the bucket from the river or the rain water is really part of the fun you start wondering why you are usually in need for so much water. We could have used the washing machine at Berit‘s Roy‘s home (10 min away) but we did not.
We used the two boats that belong to the house one on the river and a motorized one on the fjord for fishing and fun. Since we brought our bikes we cycled the nearby roads through mountains, valleys and across islands. Landscape is really nice. The nearby supermarket is sufficient and at the equally far away school (15 min drive) we used the sports facilities.
The stay was really great and we rearranged our living room thanks to the inspiring arrangements in the house. Thanks Berit and Roy.
Thank you for staying. We really appreciated that you chose to stay at our cabin and are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your holiday here. We wish you well and welcome back any time.
50 meters from the cottage you can fish for salmon, sea trout and brown trout.
We can arrange fishing permits for fishing in the river. The fjord is free.
One can take a boat trip on the water, in the bay or go hiking on the trails in the mountains and observe the stunning views and wildlife here. There are eagles and deer around. Also berries and mushrooms can be found in the season.
Take day trip to the Sognefjord (Norway's longest and deepest fjord), Jostedalsbreen or to Bergen (west country's capital).
In winter there are f. Ex. only 1 hour to Stordalen ski.
