Experience the ambience of over hundred years ago, in the unique cosy 'Oakhouse'; Original features such as thatched roof and much more are coupled with modern discreet technology such as dishwashers and current hygiene facilities. Oakhouse is one of the few original farmhouses that are found on Ærø. The exceptional location, protected on the upper half of the 'Egebjerg' (Eichenberg), a hill on bike route No. 90, 7 km away from Ærøskøbing with a view of the Danish South Sea complement the special atmosphere.
The building of Oakhouse was restored in authentic style by the famous Danish architect Alan Havsteen-Mikkelsen, whose father, Sven Havsteen-Mikkelsen, lived in the neighbourhood and a well-known painter, and used as a backdrop in a comic book about the legend of Søbygård (the water tower and former mansion, now a museum).
Oakhouse is furnished with typical antique country style furniture and has a large south garden.
