It is located in a beautiful area of Western Norway right outside of Bergen. The cabin is literally right on a fjord and has AMAZING views! Jostein has modernized this cabin very well. We picked it, because of it's location and also for the nice bed arrangements. We have two boys, and liked having three bedrooms with two beds in each. The kitchen was so nice and had pretty much everything we needed. We really liked having an easy to use coffee maker too!! And the highlight of the cabin was the hot tub on the deck!! It was the main attraction each night as we winded down from our treks and wanted to reflect on our day. It was very easy to use too. The tv got great stations and many were in English! We enjoyed having high speed internet. We would highly recommend this cabin to anyone! The area had so much to see. We used Jostein's maps a lot and we saw so many cool things! We drove all around and there are hiking trails everywhere. In Bruvoll, there is a fun place to go canoeing. The weather was great while we were there, so we stayed outdoors a lot. Bergen is not far and we enjoyed the wharf. It was very cute and educational. Another great self catering cottage from Owners Direct! We are never disappointed.
