Enhanced cleaning practices
Cleaned with disinfectant
Great place to stay. It was secluded and very peaceful and quiet. This is exactly what we were looking for. The cabin itself is very clean and spaceous, and so was the deck. The owner himself, was very responsive to all questions. We literally had answers within minutes of asking them. There was a minor issue/mix-up with towels, but a quick 5 minute phone call with the owner resolved it. We were very happy with our accomodations.
Fernando, I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay and everything was to you liking. I hope to see you again soon!
Great place for family and kids!!
We loved our stay. The place was clean and very well organized. Things are clearly marked. The kids had a great time and had plenty of space to play. We will definitely be back!.
Harinder, Thank you, and we hope to see you back again soon.
Nors Hus was the perfect home away from home. It was comfortable, stocked with games for all ages, and centrally located to hiking trails and access to snow. All three generations in our group had a wonderful time!
Thanks Susan, Glad you enjoyed the Norse Hus!
Cozy house in the trees
Great house! Accommodated our group with ease. Would definitely recommend this house, as we will probably end up renting from them again.
Thank you Catherine!
Pictures don't do justice! it's beautiful and the owner is very great at communicating. We had a big group and the house was perfect because there's plenty of room for everybody to feel comfortable and move around without feeling crowded.
The only complaint I have is quiet time is 10pm, everyday we followed the house rules to the T but, of course the "neighbors" weren't too happy with the loud music we were playing, Why have the speakers on the outside deck, if this is an issue?
The approach from a not so friendly neighbor to my kids as they were playing games on the deck should not have happened cause I got a call and a text from the owner to turn down the music, all I have to say is He's Lucky my husband or cousins were NOT outside when he decided to do a walk by with his Rude Remarks.
We've been to Twaine Harte 4 years in a row, stayed at multiple cabins, do the same type of family gatherings, loud music, family enjoying each others company and we've never had a complain but, I know it's not the owners fault, thank you again for letting us enjoy your beautiful home and if your a big crowd, this is the Perfect Home for you.
I'm so glad the Norse Hus was able to accommodate your group and that you had a great time. Thank you for following our basic rules, it's always appreciated.

About Roger Ravenstad
I have been coming to Twain Harte since I was 5 years old when my parents bought their first cabin here. The Norse Hus is my second cabin and was not intended as a rental at first. My family and I enjoy the cabin year round. We are avid skiers and hikers. I am also a semi-professional photographer and the cabin has many of my local work decorating the walls.
Roger Ravenstad purchased this House in 2002
Why Roger Ravenstad chose Twain Harte
We were captivated by this property because it is a larger lot with 100's of trees giving a very secluded and private setting. The Brentwood Park area of Twain Harte is much quieter than central Twain Harte, but is only 1.5 mile walk to town.
What makes this House unique
The large deck wraps around three sides of the cabin so you can always find a sunny or shady spot, whatever you prefer. The house is huge on Twain Harte standards and works very well for multiple families with children. The downstairs has a large family room, which is great for kids, while the upstairs has multiple living spaces, so everyone can find peace or activity within the house.
