About the property

Quiet and peaceful, with six beds in two floors, sunny location

A genuine Swedish old-style forest cottage from 1879, with seven beds on two floors (three bedrooms). The total living area is about 100 square metres. The house has been preserved and restored in old-fashioned style. The house is located on a very sunny hill in the forest, with open spaces 50 metres in all directions, 600 metres to the nearest neighbor and 100% transparency protected. Sun all day. Here you will not be disturbed by anyone, nature is at your doorstep and with endless walking trails through the forests. In the autumn there are chanterelles on the driveway and in the spring there are wild daffodils blooming everywhere on the slopes.

Cosy cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in August. Beautiful little cabin full of charm and character away from it all surrounded by forest. Highly recommended if you want a peaceful relaxing holiday, take a walk through the trees and have a dip in one of the lakes, you might even spot a moose! The cabin has everything you need including a fantastic log burning fire, there are a couple of great supermarkets a few miles away for supplies. The owner Paul, is a pleasure to deal with and happy to help with anything. We were sad to leave this lovely place, but we will never forget it as we got engaged here 💜 Sarah and Darren from U.K

Lovely cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

It is a beautiful place for people who love being in the nature and simplicity. We stayed there during december and thanks to the nice wood-stove and the radiators it was always warm and cosy. The area is perfect for hiking. What we loved most was the peace and quiet whe had there. The cabin intself has everything you need, but you shouldn't expect any luxury. But sitting there in the evening with lighted candles and stove makes you feel like you went back in time (which is alsodue to all the antique furniture :)). It was a great experience and for everyone who need some time away from the the stress of everyday life: this is the place to be.

Time to be unplugged

  • 4 of 5

We needed a break from the everyday life and some time to be together as a couple. This were the perfect place for just that. The house is adorable and the furnitures take you back in time. And the nature is breathing.
