Cozy little house in beautiful surroundings
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 :-)
It is located in very beautiful surroundings and we are very satisfied with our stay here. The facilities are clean and the sauna is fantastic. This house is perfect if you want to enjoy nature and skiing. The slopes are just 15 min away.
Communication with the owners was great!
Cosy cottage in the wilderness
Perfect for skiing, hiking and fishing. The sauna is great! A calm and quiet stay in a cosy, old but modernised cottage, below the mountains.
Gemütliche Hütte in herrlicher Umgebung
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.
Thank you for those words! It's great to hear that you had a wonderful holliday. Warm welcome back!

Great place to enjoy Swedish outdoors
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.
Lovely home in the countryside
We spent a wonderful week here this past winter. Really beautiful and quiet surroundings. The sauna was fantastic- would go back just for that! Relatively close to Fjätervålen, where we enjoyed some cross-country skiing. Our host was quick at responding to emails and was very thorough in giving us all the information we needed for our stay. The cottage is very isolated, and that's just what we wanted. (Do stock up on groceries in Idre on your way! There is a small shop at the ski resort in Fjätervålen as well.) While winter visit is just perfect, we look forward to visiting sometime in the summer as well.
