The place is lovely located next to the water in the forest close to a very small town. We came here for a weekend getting away from everything and that's exaclty what we got. The house is quite basic but has all you need and when you wake up you're looking out over the water and the forest. Across the boathouse there's a small place where you can shower or take the sauna (recomended). If you like going for a walk, the surroundings offer you many trails and tracks from short to long distance. Just a lovely place if you want to get away.
