What a beautiful setting!

The cabin was just as described and more. Although there are now 6 cabins we could not see any of them from ours so it was very private. They also had an onsite representative who was very helpful with information and solving problems. The cabins are new and fresh and all have a wonderful view of the fjord. It is a long day's drive from Oslo but well worth the trip. Balestrand, the nearest village, is beautiful and historic with a very helpful tourist office and a grocery store which we visited almost daily.

The only negative that I can think of is the steep stairway (more like a ship's ladder) up to the sleeping loft. This is a cabin after all so I think this can be forgiven but I found it to be particularly difficult for those late night trips to the ground floor toilet.

All in all it was an unforgettable week in one of the most beautiful places on earth!
