First, the proprietor Ruth is great to talk to and is so knowledgeable about the surrounding area that you will never have a lack of things to do. She also knows a lot about Sweden and the surrounding Scandinavian countries, and about traveling in general. The B&B is beautifully yet simply furnished and breakfast is traditionally Scandinavian. I must also comment on the cleanliness of the B&B; everything in our room, bathroom, and throughout the house was spotless! Will definitely return again when we are next in the area.

A simple buffet breakfast of crusty breads, granola, yogurt, meats and cheeses. Walk to dining and shopping. Free Wifi. Private baths. Bike trail along the lake to Quebec, Canada (6 miles) only two blocks away. Some French spoken. ... more less
