Amazing hospitable Dutch owners have made it their mission to have an great stay. Extremely clean rooms, I've never seen a bathroom more clean than this. Nicely decorated, self renovated, old school buidling. Spacious, high ceiling rooms, with comfy beds and lake view. They have cracked the covid-breakfast dillema by offering 4 types of breakfast, being served at your table: Swedish, French, English or Healthy. Nice restaurant/bar and sundeck outside. In the evening there's a great service offering a choice for everybody, even vegan. I've read some remarks about the road, which I'd like to comment on. Yes there is a road quit close by, and you will hear cars passing. Currently a bit more traffic due to road works at the main road 61, which drivers try to avoid by taking this one. But at night it was quit and we were not to bothered about it. Hopefully this will be sorted soon. Worth knowing there's no direct access to the lake, but there is one just 5 minutes drive away. However they will also direct you to a great bathing spot 10-15 minutes away in a suberb litte lake with a beach. The owners offer great outdoor activities. We've really enjoyed our stay, great value for money and warmly recommend this place. We're looking forward to return to this gem!

We stayed for three nights in this family owned B&B and we enjoyed it very much. Great room and spacious bathroom with good shower. Breakfast buffet is good with lots to choose from. You can have your breakfast or dinner inside or outside, the place is very nice decorated. Dinner is good food and delicously prepared. Would absolutely recommend this place if you want to visit this area.

Our stay in the guesthouse was part of a roundtrip through Sweden and Norway. Brenda and Michel are very friendly and welcoming. Brenda is also a great cook :-) We would gladly stay here another time.

Very tasteful, clean and friendly hotel and excellent value for money. We turned up at the door and they made a room available to us straight away. The hotel lies in a beautiful and unspoilt area. The family running the hotel are very friendly and very helpful. My only regret is that we only stayed the one night!

Nice rooms with high ceilings (at least the one we got). The lack of aTV on the room actually felt good ! Nice confortable beds. Nice personel and good breakfast. Only drawback was a littel noice from the road (we did have our window open though)

This is an old schoolhouse restored over the years into a guest house. The room we had was nice. It did not have a tv, and with not much to do at night that would have been nice to have. There is a tv downstairs in the restaurant/launge area. If your room is facing the road, there will be some road noise. Nice beds. Great Swedish type breakfast. They serve dinner as well. Friendly people running the place. NO ICE MACHINE! It would be a better score with a tv in the room, and better access to ice.
