So cozy and well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

We wished we could stay longer. The only negative is the tiny beds -- no way to push those twin beds together for a couple. Owners are friendly and accommodating.

Really cozy cabin with everything that could possibly be needed for anybody.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and was very impressed. The kitchen has everything and more which was good because we did cook quite a lot and had a BBQ. The log fire was so warm with plenty of wood to use, the living area was a real home away from home, not stark at all. It rained a lot during our stay so we didn`t make use of the outside table and chairs etc, but we did tour round and walked to the lake and the forest areas and rowed in the boat. The cabin is very well located for many of the local towns only a short driving distance.

The only negative for me which I feel could be improved are the beds which could perhaps be upgraded. The 2 singles when pushed together are not the same size/level leaving an unequal gap. However the positives of this cabin far outweighed this negative and did not impinge on my overall quality of time staying there. We as a family really hope to stay again there in the future. Thank you to the hosts for providing such a great place.

Owner's Response: Hello, Thanks for you stay and we are happy to hear you had a good time. You are the first guests to connect the beds, so that was something new for us also. But as long as the quality and not the hight of the beds is ok, then I think that is a minor problem as you mentioned. Welcome back again!.

Very nice house. Wonderful hosts. I strongly recom

  • 5 of 5

We rested in this beautiful house at the end of August. The house is made with lots of love. The hosts are very hospitable and friendly people. The weather was good. Sometimes there was a strong wind, a little hurt to catch a pike, which is found there in abundance. A lot of mushrooms and berries. The house is perfect for a family with one or two children. Be sure to try to come here again. Many thanks to the owners and I loved Norway.

Idyllic secluded home-from-home

  • 5 of 5

We really appreciated the way that Joost and Kristin had thoughtfully sought to set the cabin up with everything you could need for comfortable home living. The location is charming and tranquil. The cabin warms up very well with the wood stove. Joost was very attentive to all our needs, getting extra wood when needed and providing good humoured conversation when he visited. The location is very good for exploring lakes and places of interest up to Lillehammer. The wi-fi works well and keeps you connected if needed, whilst the location and environment keep you far away from the pressures of daily urban life. We highly recommend the place for a break from daily grind.

Adorable.

  • 5 of 5

Je remercie Kristin et Joost pour leur accueil, les indications pour accéder à la location sont très claires. Nous avons adoré cette location, le site est superbe, juste à côté d'un lac. Nous avons profité du bateau pour aller pêcher. Nous avons pris deux beaux brochets.

La maison est très bien équipée, rien ne manque ( hamac, mobilier de jardin, ustensiles de cuisine ) tout y est. On se sent bien immédiatement.

A quelques kilomètres se trouve tous les magasins nécessaires.

Voilà, je recommande à tous cette location, une belle escapade nature

pour nous, pauvres citadins :)

Juste un détail, il manque un lit double en lieu et places des deux lits simples. Merci encore.

Elisabeth et Jean Michel.

Gezellig compleet vakantiehuis voor vier personen dichtbij meer

  • 5 of 5

Wij verbleven tien dagen in dit leuke huisje. Het huisje is ruim en compleet ingericht, met veel ruimte om het huis heen en 150 meter van het Hemnessjoen, een mooi meer waarop het leuk varen is en met leuke strandjes.

Het contact met de eigenaren hebben we als erg fijn ervaren. Er werd snel gereageerd op mail en Joost was (tijdens ons verblijf) altijd bereikbaar voor vragen en was steeds bereid even langs te komen.

Het huisje ligt midden in de natuur. Elanden zijn in de buurt gemakkelijk te spotten, maar we hebben ook allerlei vogels gezien. Op de ochtend van vertrek hoorden- en zagen we nog twee kraanvogels, de kers op de taart! Ook het eekhoorntje in de bomen rondom het huis was erg leuk.

In de omgeving is van alles te zien en te beleven. Voor wie het niet erg vindt een uur te rijden is één of enkele dagen Oslo sowieso de moeite waard, maar ook Fredrikstad en Oscarsborg zijn een bezoekje meer dan waard. Dichterbij is er het Halden Kanal Muset, een mooi museum naast een indrukwekkend sluizencomplex.

En dan kun je ook nog prachtige wandelingen maken en zwemmen in één van de meertjes in de bossen.

Een aanrader!
