“This is a serene, peaceful place in natural Norwegian surroundings. Virgin landscape, totally free from urban noise and struggles. If you want to lower your shoulders and forget about your worries, this is the place to go. The kitchen is ideal for cooking and has all modern amenities (save for a microwave oven, but we didn’t need that). We especially appreciated the very cold fridge for keeping our food fresh and delicious. Freezer comes with. Breakfast can be enjoyed on the terrace in sunny (or overcast) weather, it has direct access from the kitchen. If you like fishing the little fresh-water lake is teaming with young and some larger trout. You can use the boat that comes with free of charge or you can fish from the wharf (early morinings and dusk it best, but bring protection against insect bites, the gnat are wild after sunset). The bedrooms are spacious and you have access to a little veranda from the living room that overlooks the lake (a loving swallow pair has their nest in the roof ridge). We recommend going to the "Cinnamon beaches" in Mandal, just 30 minutes drive and you are at the coast with endless, soft sandy beaches, not overcrowded at all. Lush landscape, rhododendron forests.”

“This is a little gem! We loved everything about Ellen's place - an easy distance to Kristiansand, an amazing, scenic drive up and down winding roads to get there, very well-planned interior with space for everything! This little guest house is enchanting and comfortable. It felt like travelling to the past, with all the modern conveniences. We slept so well (the beds are super comfortable), we loved the view of the trains, the lake, and the cows grazing below. Ellen left a little bouquet of field flowers on the kitchen table, and fishing rods for us in the barn. We found a pristine lake to picnic and fish - just up the road, over the tracks and following a 'children's trail'. This place is definitely a highlight of our visit to Norway. Perfect for kids - full of charm and nostalgia!”

“We have had a super nice autumn holiday at the beautiful cottage! The weather was nice and we could enjoy the time in the boat in the water or fire bonfires. The boys were thrilled by nature and it was just wonderful to experience everyday life without running water or electricity. Didn't miss it either! Highly recommended :)”
