After the cramped conditions of the hostel at Lysebotn you may crave some comfort and you will find it here. The owners of the guesthouse let out an apartment for four and a house with 12 beds in 4 rooms. Bed linen is provided, so no need to bring the sleeping bags from the car. We had the ground floor bedroom but, as there were no other guests staying there at the time, the whole house was at our disposal, including the fully equipped kitchen and the enormous living room with plenty of sofas and armchairs and, should we want to write a postcard or consult a map, a desk in the corner. The french windows opened onto a big terrace and garden. It's a pity we didn't have enough time to enjoy it as it rained when we arrived. The owner was very keen on giving us information on the area but he spoke very little English. Still, the leaflets he provided said it all.
We paid 400 NOK, much less than for the cubbyhole in the hostel at Lysebotn and wished we could stay longer as it would have been a nice place to spend a holiday. Provided of course that we didn't have to share the house with a crowd of other people.

Unique Qualities: The best equipped house we have ever stayed in. Everything was there: from a needle and thread in many colours to.... a harpsichord in the living room. The owner has a boat which can be hired - I am not sure if he charges his guests for that.
