The Space

We offer a large very private room, upstairs with it's own entrance, and a very comfortable bed for 2 persons including a generous breakfast!
If you are more than two, extra beds can be arranged for $30 per person.
Note that you will share our bathroom downstairs. Easy to grasp from the pictures.

Easy access to public transport that takes less than a half hour minutes to the center of Stockholm or 15 minutes by car - truly one of the world's most beautiful cities. I give Stockholm tours also which can be booked.

The house is nestled in the middle of a nature preserve with daily birdsong concerts as background music - Now beautiful spring is here. New spring birds are arriving daily in search of nuts and seeds. The Koltrast are singing their beautiful melodies. Such an exciting time of year with the gentle unfolding of spring beauty all around. Ravenwood is already set up as a retreat and healing center.

Except for the breakfast which is included in the price, other meals can be arranged, as we are both really good cooks. Write me a message for those prices.
Easy hiking opportunities with hiking up Korpberget (Raven Mountain) with a huge panorama of Lake Mälaren.Local ski area Flottsbrobacken is nearby, 10 minutes, for day and night skiing and possible year round picnics. Easy bus transport to the ski/nature preserve area.
Climbing opportunities can be arranged with a friend if you are interested and she is available. You can also book a Healing or Head and Neck Massage. Please share our amazing part of the earth with us.

  • Chere's home is fantastic! We had the best of both worlds. Her home is a peaceful retreat from the buzzily city of Stockholm. Just 10mins walk from her doorstep is a reserve park with a wonderful view of a lake. We even spotted a deer! WIth the metro, it's only 25mins downtown. To top off, Chere even chauffeured us from metro station to her home everytime, even though it's only a 10 mins walk. By the way, if u have the Stockholm card/public transportation card for Stockholm city, the ride to her place is free as it is included. What can I say about the breakfast? Just heavenly. U have to come & try. We had our nice private room upstairs separated from the main part of the house. It's quite spacious even for 3 persons. And about Chere & Andes, u can't find a more hospitable, kind & gracious host. I highly recommend this place. It's really a home away from home. Thanks Chere & Andes, for making us a part of your family. We will always cherish fond memories of our stay.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Chere and Anders, the house is a haven away from the world, so peaceful and scenic. We wish we weren't half a world away so we could stay more often. Chere couldn't do enough for us, she was fabulous, I so enjoyed our chats. Brilliant ! After a busy touring schedule we picked the perfect place to recharge - the breakfasts are wonderful. Felt so pampered.

  • Chere is an extremely warm and welcoming host. Her place is next to a nature preserve with walking trails and she has a beautiful loggia in which to serve her wonderfully delicious breakfast. Everyone in our family found staying at Chere's place to be a charming and a restful break from our hectic touring schedule.

  • It was much more interesting than to stay at hotel. You could get a flavour of how people live in Sweden. What impressed us was care what we have got from Chere. She was picking us up at the train station even it was quite close to the house. Chere gave us great recommendations what to visit in Stockholm. Also helped us to reach certain destinations.
    The biggest thing we loved was to have great Chere's breakfast in the garded surrounded by forest.

  • Chere and Anders were absolutely top notch! Fantastic place! It's about 25 min by metro and then another 10 min walk to her house but what a great place. It borders a park and when you're there you feel like you're a million miles away from the city. Amazing energy. Super comfortable home where you just feel like relaxing. Chere is the sweetest person and very helpful. Great communication. Anders has an amazingly funny dry sense of humor where you'll be laughing hard and he's just cracking a hint of a smile. Breakfast outside in the morning with birds chirping and sunlight filtering through the trees...heaven.

  • Chere was was so welcoming which made us feel right at home. Her place was amazing as it felt as if you were in the woods of Stockholm. Although a little bit out of down her house was right next to the subway which was perfect and only 10-15 min. into the busy city. We ate dinner with them and learned all about Stockholm and the Swedish culture which was amazing. Definitely would stay there again.

  • We had a really fantastic time at Chere & Andres's place. The location is like a secret garden, quiet, peaceful & comfortable throughout our stay there. Chere was a great host, we had nice conversations and she was very helpful. Did I mention her breakfast is something we look forward to everyday? It's delicious & yummy! We'll definitely be staying over again when we're back in Stockholm. Thanks Chere! Miss the cats :D

  • I've been traveling for 10 weeks and realize now how much I needed to wind down. Chere and Anders were a pleasure to be around and welcomed me into their home while also giving me the privacy of my own room upstairs. The house is is located in such a way to straddle that fence between city and nature. I enjoyed hikes in the woods, nights wandering Stockholm, amazing meals and pleasant conversation with two unique individuals. I would stay here again and would recommend Chere and Anders to my friends and family.

  • Wonderful place! Not far away from metro station and 20 min train for the centre.
    Quiet, relaxing, extremely welcoming, you enter a place of fairies and postive thoughts and after enjoying an intense day in Stockholm, you are just looking forward to reach your room, and drink the good night herbal tea of Chere!
