Hygge (/'hju:??/ HEW-g? or /'hu:??/ HOO-g?) is a Danish and Norwegian word which can be described as a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. That's what Hygge House is all about.
Located on the shore of Huycks Bay in a quiet location, Hygge House is an ideal place for rest and relaxation. This comfortable three bedroom, two bathroom vacation home features simple contemporary decor and an open concept living and dining area with large windows and lovely calming water views.
The spacious yard provides lots of space for the kids to run around outdoors and be kids while the adults relax on one of the decks with a morning coffee or an evening cocktail. Head out for a day at the Sandbanks, a beach pass is included with your rental. The larger deck provides a dining space and BBQ for grilling meals while the smaller water-side deck provides a peaceful vista. Guests are welcome to use the two kayaks provided if they'd like to get a close up view of the bay. And what's a better way to end a 'hygge' day than roasting marshmallows and telling tales around the water-side campfire as the sun sets over the bay.
The local road is ideal for biking and walking. North Beach is less than 15 minutes away and your rental includes a beach pass which is also valid for the Sandbanks beaches. Several award winning wineries and breweries are also part of the local landscape. Close by is the quaint lakeside village of Wellington where you can enjoy dining, visiting a bar or cafe, and shopping for supplies and gifts. You may also appreciate the sand beach, lakeside park, Wellington Farmers Market (Sat), and Wellington-on-the-Lake Golf Course.
