Our newly built (2018) very luxurious holiday home is only 40 meters from the lake in the middle of meadows and forests. The log cabin is suitable for 6 people and has an area of over 105 m2 including the terrace. In addition, it has its own fiber-optic WiFi and is heated in an environmentally friendly way by floor heating powered by a heat pump. The cottage is equipped with everything you need for a wonderful holiday!
The house has a spacious open kitchen and living room with a beautiful view over the lake and the hills. Through large patio doors you reach the covered terrace from where you can look out over the lake and the surrounding hills. Furthermore, the house is equipped with a luxurious bathroom and a spacious sauna for 6 people. An extra, separate, toilet and a laundry room. On the upper floor there are 3 bedrooms with traditional woodwork and vaulted ceilings.
At 30 meters from the porch is a private beach and a fire boiler / BBQ. There is also the rowing boat that is included in the rent. Just like the use of two casting rods and two kingfish rods. Next to the house is a smoking room where freshly caught fish can be smoked.
There are many fun things to see and do around the lake and in the woods. There are activities for all ages in each of the four seasons!
In the summer it is wonderful to explore the forests and hills. You can follow the many paths both on foot and by mountain bike. One of the walks can lead you to the wind cabin where you can pause by a wood fire. After a long walk you can take a refreshing dip in the lake or take the rowing boat for a relaxing trip on the lake. Then don't forget to bring a fishing rod and try to catch a nice fish for dinner. When you return you can make a fire in the fire pit. Grill sausages or barbecue your just caught fish on the fire while the sun sinks behind the hills. Enjoy the starry sky from the terrace of the cottage before you go to bed, on clear nights the entire galaxy will unfold before your eyes!
In autumn the leaves change color and add spectacular yellow and red hues to the wooded landscape. Walking and boating offer a picturesque view of the change of season. Many different types of berries are ripe for picking on the hills surrounding the huts. The moose hunting season also starts in the first week of September. When discussed in advance, it is possible to follow the hunters during the hunt. Enjoy the day's adventures with a hot glass of mulled wine!
In the winter and the beginning of spring the land is covered with a thick layer of snow. When you go cross-country skiing or hiking with snowshoes in the quiet white forests, you can just come across the possibility of a reindeer or a moose.
On the lake you can learn the art of ice fishing, it is an experience every fisherman must have had once. And when, tired of all activities, you sit down at the campfire to warm up again, the northern lights can suddenly illuminate the night sky above the hills with a great light show.
If you have a car, you can discover the province of Jämtland! For example, you can ride off-road motorcycles in the summer and snowmobile / snowmobile in the winter at Offroad Sweden. In addition, in winter there is also the possibility to do ice driving with a car on the frozen lakes in the area. For people who prefer not to use a motorbike to move around, dog sledding is also an option.
You can also find nearby ski slopes and cross-country ski runs. Especially the cross-country skiing opportunities in Östersund are great, because there is the World Championship cross-country skiing trail!
Whether you decide to head out for a full day trip or a short visit in the area, we can give you many great tips for food, fun and adventure. There is nature everywhere! So depending on the season there are great locations nearby for walking, swimming, boating, cycling, cross-country skiing, skiing, skating, tobogganing and snowshoeing.
