Absolutely top-cottage in Hemsedal area

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 1-week holiday in this luxury cottage in Hemsedal ! We were with 2 kids and 2 adults and had all the space in this generous cabin. Everything is modern, clean and with a very cosy style of the interior. The sauna was great, 2 bath rooms with high quality. We enjoyed the quiteness and panoramic views. The capped veranda offers all-time nice views, even if the weather is bad. We could see the the icacaps in the distance and beautiful mountains and at the same time the beautiful forest nearby. The golf offers nice views, too and we have seen only 2 golfers in all the 6 days we stayed. There is a lot to do, like for example you can walk to the river and the dam from the house (just 500mtres). There you can go fishing and you can cross the dam to get to the parallel hiking or biking path which is parallel to the road without hearing any street noise. from there you can hike, run or bike all the way down to Gol or all the way up to Hemsedal. After just 7 kmters you arrive beneath the toll road to the waterfall. You can see the waterfall also from the cabin. We recommend to drive the road up and make a hike (through snow! partly) around the mountain lake and to the waterfall. It is very spectacular. You can also drive the beautiful Panoramavegen which is just 4 km from the cabin.

In Hemsedal you can do all shoppings, there are some nice outdoorstores and you can enjoy a good meal in the Hemsedal Cafe (not expensive) or at the Pizza (expensive).

But as said the cottage is so comfortable that you can enjoy your stay all day and evening in and around the home. The beds are outstanding, the couch in the living room is also great, the kitchen is very complete all functioning very well.

The owner was very helpful with information and very service minded.

We can absolutely recommend this cottage.

Great vacation in Hemsedal!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful cottage in Hemsedal, Norway in early July. There were only 4 of us staying so we had more than enough space. However, the cottage is spacious enough for 3 or 4 families. Everything inside the cottage was clean and well- maintained. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking and there's a grill outside. We really couldn't have asked for more. We were all so comfortable and really enjoyed the cottage and the area. My husband and I enjoyed it so much, that we asked the owner if we could stay 2 additional nights. :) The area is beautiful and it's only a short drive to Hemsedal center with grocery stores, restaurants, gas stations, ski slopes and hiking trails. There's a lot to do, if you enjoy the outdoors! We also drove to Flåm and went on a cruise on the fjord. It was amazing! The owner is very nice and responded to all our questions promptly. He also gave us some tips on what to see and do in the area. We highly recommend this place!
