Fabulous house and location

5 of 5
We had a brilliant family get together in this lovely well maintained house. Good weather allowed us to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and local activities. The space and equipment were ample for a large group. Highly recommend.

Perfect place to celebrate a family Christmas

5 of 5
We were an extended family with three small children who were looking for a place to celebrate Christmas together in Norway. The Nissehus was an easy 3.5 hour drive from Oslo, good clear instructions for arrival. The house itself was beautifully located in a larger cabin area with pretty landscape and some small lakes. Christmas was unseasonably warm this year, so no snow on arrival, but it came down during our Christmas day breakfast to lovely effect. We took some little walks in the area, and had an outdoor bbq with hot dogs and cocoa around the fire pit provided, but unfortunately did not get to try out any of the skiing trails or local slopes. And the snow came down for full the night before we were to leave, absolutely gorgeous. The house itself was bright, spotless and well equipped on all fronts, bedding, kitchen, sauna. Lots of space both inside and outside for all of us. Great views from the kitchen table which became our natural gathering place. Excellent communication with Harald both prior to and during our stay. I can see that it would be a lovely place to stay during the summer as well. Highly recommended!
