A typical charming Swedish red cottage in lovely surroundings next to a lake(3 min walk) with your own bathing place with platform, access to boat and one canoe for up to 3/4 persons and free fishing(You can borrow simpel fishing equipment). Fully equipped main house with 3 bedrooms. Additionally 1 small house available with 4 beds.
It is very quiet and peaceful here and you will see the sheep and horses graze near the house.
Set amidst the wilderness of forests, meadows and lakes of Bergslagen, you can spend days in this house all year being fully activated - or relaxed. In the summertime, sheep and horses walk in the meadows close to the house. In the autumn, walk the forest and pick mushrooms and berries. In the wintertime, try cross country skiing in the meadows or around the lake. The fish in the lake are awake all year around. The lake's other inhabitants, the beavers, of which there are plenty, sleep in the winter but can be spotted in early mornings and evenings the other seasons if you stay silent. One of my own kids' favorite summer activities; "beaver safari". Foreign guest often go on a "moose safari", but you are likely to see a moose whether you want to or not. Many days the golden eagles can be seen sweeping in the sky. People are often astonished by the silence out here.
There is a small house close to the main building with 2 bunk beds for 4 people. Should you be interested in this house, please contact us and we will then change the price accordingly depending on the number of people.
The lake and a private dock for the guests is found a short walk from the house.
The house is a unique construction that has faced a number of renovations and new rooms, the oldest part of it being from the 19th century when this area was vastly populated. The house has been in our family since the 1920's. We ourselves used it as our country house all year around until a few years back. Now I moved out here from the city and live permanently in the neighboring house.
