We spent 4 nights at Solbakken in one of the Villas, attached to the lodge. Our villa had 2 bedrooms, a small kitchen and a fireplace The setting was very nice, near the lakeshore, with windows and a deck overlooking the other cabins closer to the shore.
The unit seemed to be clean but very dated and needs lots of fixing and updates. The furniture was quite worn, the smoke detector was hanging from the ceiling by its wires, the towels were very old and ragged and the heat would not shut off in one of the bedrooms. The handy man looked at the problem and said "I think someone else complained about this. I can't shut it off. You can just open the window when it gets too hot." (We did but it was December so it was very cold!) He also tucked the smoke detector up into the ceiling tiles and said he'd bring a new one later. It was still broken when we left 4 days later!
The employees were friendly and helped us when we asked questions. Too bad they are letting the place get so run down. It could be a very nice resort with some repairs and updates.
