Gemütliche Hütte in herrlicher Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten bereits letztes Jahr zwei Wochen und in diesem Jahr eine Woche in diesem liebevoll eingerichteten Haus. Die Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit, die herrliche Landschaft mit unzähligen Wandermöglichkeiten, sowie die vielfältig zu beobachtende Tierwelt hat uns auch dieses Jahr wieder begeistert. So konnten wir Fisch, Stein- und Seeadler, einige Elche, viele Rentiere und als absolut unübertreffbares Erlebnis einen Bären beobachten.

Das Haus bietet alles was man braucht um sich nach anstrengenden Wanderungen zu erholen.

Die Gastgeberin ist sehr freundlich und wir stehen auch weiterhin in Kontakt.

Cozy little house in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week during the winter and were excited over the big amount of snow! The house is quite far from the next village/city, which we liked a lot. During the nights you could see so many stars. There are many possibilities to get active (ski areas, national parks, husky tours etc). We saw our first moose and reindeers, full success.

The house itself is cozy and comfortable and beautifully furnished. It is clean and equipped with everything you need. We also liked the opportunity of getting wood out of the wood shed to heat up the sauna and the fireplace. The house is not a luxurious new built vacation house (who needs that anyway), but a family owned house with a lovable character.

The landlord Maria was very friendly and dedicated to help us have a great vacation.

We would very much like to come back :-)

wonderful cabin for a winter holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent wonderful winter holidays in this cabin (3 weeks). This was our second stay in the winter in this cabin.

The cabin has a fireplace, which made it very cosy. There is plenty of space --there even is a little guest cabin, with a wood stove. The kitchen is well kitted out for preparing every day meals; we even did some baking! There is also a wood fired sauna: of course we used that regularly also. (I'm afraid we burned a lot of wood...)

Maria was very helpful, and always replies promptly. The cabin was clean and tidy when we arrived; nothing broke down or wasn't functioning properly.

My kids enjoyed downhill skiing in Idre and Fjätervålen, and we went cross country skiing every day: there are so many beautiful tracks in the area! (This time the owners had even made a long track starting from the cabin.)

The cottage is located in a quiet hamlet, but Idre has everything one needs. Often, on our way to Idre, we would see a herd of reindeer on the road. We even saw moose a couple of times in the area.

We very much loved staying there, and intend to go back as soon as we can!

Great place to enjoy Swedish outdoors

  • 5 of 5

The cabin has a lot of charm and is comfortable for up to 4-5 people, although the bathroon is quite small. That is not so important as there is a wonderful wood-fired sauna for relaxing after a day out hiking, fishing or skiing.

The listing is pretty accurate and there is a lot more information about things to do in a folder in the cabin. The tips we tried were good. We were there to experience the mountain surroundings, which are great. It is relatively remote with only a few other buildings within a couple of km but that is what we wanted. It is off the beaten track, but the instructions to get there worked fine and everything was as described.
