The uniqueness of the geographical situation of our detached holiday cottage – surrounded by nature and easy to get to, with a splendid panoramic view over the lake and onto the Havrefjell and its impressive waterfall – is definitely one of the main assets of our “hytte”. Rustic, modern, practical with the touch of the extraordinary as manifested by 150-year-old terracotta tiles from an old castle in the champagne is combined with different kinds of wood. Four bedrooms offer enough place for one or two families or a group of friends. The spacious bathroom with its very individualistic design and a built-in sauna, a big and cosy living and dining area with an open fire and a terrace of 75qm fulfil all expectations. Two lakes adjacent to the premises, the nearest at a distance of 100 m, the second of 500 m with raft and a small beach.
