Yannick (February, 2017):

‘A beautiful, old Norwegian farm. I enjoyed the evenings by the fireplace while the snow was dancing outside the windows. Loved the old paintings on the doors and the farm animals wandering around. Felt like I travelled back in time. I strongly recommend this place :)’

Malin (October 2017)

‘Had a fantastic stay at this beautiful place with great history dating all the way back to the 16th hundreds. The hosts were super friendly and helpful and our kids had an amazing time hanging out at the farm. The cabin was very cozy and clean with four beds, living room, kitchen and bathroom. Will definitely be back and recommends this to everyone!’
