Exceeds Expectations, Insane value, best trip ever
I cannot say enough about how helpful, friendly, and hospitable the family Brekke(all members encountered) were to my friend and I. Heidi is a superb host and as down to earth as a landlady could be. The owner's even had their mother open the local shop after hours on our arrival so that I could buy my groceries for the week. The cabin(hytte) defines cozy and views from the dining windows would cost a fortune anywhere else. If nature and the outdoors are your close companions then you've stumbled upon some of their greatest performances in Ortnevik. There are not enough stars for the rating this little gem deserves.
Truly idyllic location to spend a few days, wished we had booked for longer. Stone Cabin was very comfortable, clean, well equipped and the view from the cabin was priceless. Heaven on earth, fabulous walks, cycling and fishing, will definatley rebook.
amazing in everyway
both the property and location was brilliant,worth every penny and would definitely be returning
Wonderful, cosy and beautiful in every way :)
This was just what my son and I needed for a break away. I had always wanted to visit Norway and it lived up to my dreams. The scenery was beautiful, so peaceful and unspoilt. The little cabin was perfect; so clean, cosy and perfect. Eldar collected and dropped us from the bus stop. He was a lovely, friendly host who answered any questions and was always very helpful.
Thank you very much. We hope to come back one day - hopefully we might see the Northern Lights next time :)
Breathtaking, Heavenly - Fantasy World
We stayed in Stone Cabin for 3 nights from November 17th 2017. Eldar picked us from Oppedal ytre bus stop as we arrived from Bergen. Travel is very easy. Views on the way are very beautiful.
It's around an hour drive to Ortnevik. We had an amazing time in cabin walking to the beautiful lakes, thick woods nearby, Green Fjord, village farms. The view from our cabin window was so much amazingly breathtaking. We could see gorgeous ice capped mountains right from our windows and kitchen ceiling.
We bought our grocery from a superstore in Bergen busstation mall, although there is a local shop in the village which was closed on Sunday and cabin has all the Kitchenwares. Floor heating is really good.
Eldar and his parents are very lovely people. We couldn't believe our eyes seeing wonderful Wooden Sculptures by his dad. Wooden Stave Church by the lake is one of my partner's favorite. His dad also invited us for the church music which he was playing and unfortunately we missed it. But surprised by his talent, definitely he is a great personality.
It's definitely a fantasy world and no doubt we are excited for our next visit. We recommend this amazing place to all who love staying away from the city's hustle bustle.
Thank you so much Eldar and family for all the help :)

Beautiful cabin in the Fjords. We stayed in Stone cabin for two nights and loved it.
Beautiful drive from Bergen airport. We purposely drove a longer route back to the airport via Eidslandet which was recommended.
We passed a supermarket en route (I would recommend researching opening times ahead of arriving to destination).
Easy to find with google maps but not gps in our hire car. I was unsure which cabin I had booked as two were ready when we arrived - this could be clearer!
Plenty to do in Ortnevik if you like walking and relaxing. We completed three walks: behind the cabins in the woods, up to the lake (drinking water!) and along the Sognefjord. You would be fine without a car as long as you purchased food prior to arrival.
Cabins have a lovely view across the Fjord, heated floors and shower pressure was reasonable too.
Would definitely use again and would recommend to a friend.
