Property description

Traditional red wooden house in village of Uvanå on northernmost shores of Lake Nain bordering Värmland and Dalarna. All accommodation is extremely spacious. Main house comprises three large bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably. Large living area includes open plan lounge and dining space with seating for 8-10 people. We have had a wood burning stove recently installed which adds a welcome cosiness on cooler months. There is a TV and well-stocked DVD and VHS library. There is a large bedroom on the downstairs level with 2 large/ 3 beds. From the hall there is a downstairs bathroom with large shower, toilet and wash basin. Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms, one queen/double and one twin/double, a quiet lounge with open fireplace and stunning views of the lake and a separate fully equipped kitchen with breakfast area.
Cottage 1 is an historical, 16th century log-built 'stuga' cabin with king size bed, open fireplace, lounge space, fully equipped kitchen dining area and toilet with handbasin.
Cottage 2 contains bunk beds, shower area and also houses the sauna cabin. Beautiful lake views from both.
All properties are heated and constant running hot water supplied by the geo-thermal system.

In 2015 we have had a large decking area built in the main garden with dining table and seats, sun loungers, BBQ, Patio heater and sunken Hot tub! Views over the garden and lake.


Things to do in Uvana village: The village of Uvanå is deep in the forests of Värmland at the top of lake Nain and borders the Dalarna region of Sweden. Famous for its midsummer festivities and Dala horse, the area is steeped in Swedish traditions and ancient folklore. Known as 'Little Canada' by the locals also referred to as 'Ten mile wood/Tiomilaskogen.' The area has a yearly folk arts festival at the end of July, selling traditional crafts, food and music. You can visit the neighbouring villages in the woods where everyone welcomes you and opens their doors.
The lake is just a short walk away from the house approx 100 m.Here you can swim or launch one of our canoes. There is also a swimming area and beach 10 min walk from the house- signposted 'badplats'.
There is a local 'fishing club' in front of our property on the lake shores. Fishing permits/fiskekort can be purchased from any of our neighbours for a small fee. This will allow you to fish from other local lakes.
Explore by boat, hike or bike.

Places of interest/things to do in summer: We have local guides in the area from whom you can also rent boats, bikes and winter equipment.
You can pick wild blueberries, cranberries, currants, raspberries and gooseberries from the garden or in the woods outside our house.
In Yttermalung hire a 'Bastu Flötten'/floating sauna on a motorised raft, take a cool dip, fish, picnic.
Try quad biking, horse riding and white water canoeing or take a hot tub.
The local wildlife of the area are moose, beaver, lynx, wolf and brown bear - but don't worry the last two stay away from people in the wild! A guide can take you on moose/elk or beaver safari. Visit the predator centre in Råda village or Orsa bear park.There is a moose sanctuary near Ekshärad.
Karlstad is just over an hour away if you want to shop or visit lake Vänern.
Visit Sunne the home of Selma Lagerlof,the famous writer.
Visit Tourist Info in Hagfors or Eksharad for more ideas on activities and adventures.
Take a steam boat on the fryken lakes from Sunne to Torsby.

Things to do in winter: There is excellent season-long downhill skiing at Sälen(80km), Branäs(100km) or Säfsen(50km) and good local practice slopes at Ekshärad, Malung and Äpplebo. Floodlit night-skiing above the twinkling village lights of Ekshärad is a rare treat.
Try cross country ski lessons or learn to snow shoe hike or ice fish in winter with our neighbour in Tyngsjö 6km away. If the conditions are good he also lays an ice-skating track around the lake there.
Husky dogs in Sunnemo/Malung-take a husky sled through the snow or let them take you for a walk.
