    Property description
    Lofoten Islands
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5
    Our rorbu is built around 1890, but later refurbished. The old charm is still here, as well as the tiny beds under the ceiling where the fishermen slept. The refurbished bedrooms however, have new comfortable double beds and the bathroom is adapted to modern day standards.

    In order to keep the original feel of the rorbu, the cabin does not have a lot of extra amenities as you might excpect in modern homes. However, the cabin has cooking facilities for 6 people, and has a fridge with a small freezer as well as two electrical burners. The beds are brand new and with comfortable mattresses. The bathroom has a shower and a water closet and was refurbished around 1990.

Norway is terribly expensive, but we think... more

The whole experience was great. The folks who own the place, Gunnar and Mona, are wonderful - they promptly responded to all of our inquiries about the property, the booking and payment process, and provided some good tips on the surrounding area.
