Les échanges par mail au préalable était très clair et nous avons trouvé facilement le logement. Comme il n'était pas occupé précédemment et que nous sommes arrivés tard, nous avons eu un peu froid, le temps que le chauffage réchauffe l'atmosphère. Très belle situation. c'est ici que nous avons vu des aurores boréales !
We spent two lovely nights in this cozy cabin. We had no problem finding it, thanks to the clear directions, and the bed linens we requested were delivered after a quick phone call to Gunnar. We were thrilled to see the northern lights on our last night. It was the perfect end to our honeymoon!
Had a great one night stay here. The cabin has everything you need and it's nice to have your own place for a night. Good location, though we didn't have time to explore too much. Seems like a lot of rules at first but really the basic one is to leave everything in proper condition the way you found it.
Beschreibung war gut. Cabin war ordentlich und sauber.
Umgebung war nicht ganz so schön wie erhofft, aber wir waren auch recht verwöhnt bezüglich unserer vorigen Unterkünfte. Leider war es ein wenig unpersönlich, da man keinen Kontakt mit den Gastgebern hatte.
Lovely cabin in a beautiful landscape. Small, but with everything we needed. Everything was clean when we came and of course, we left it that way. Highly recommendable
This was a fantastic place to stay. Extremely cozy, clean and equipped with everything you would need and more, there was even a croquet set!
Wir haben eine schöne Nacht in toller Natur verbracht, das cabin war zweckmäßig und sehr gemütlich eingerichtet. Auf kleinstem Raum ist als was man benötigt vorhanden. Hinter der Hütte gibt es auch einen sehr schönen weg den man erkunden kann und wo man auch einiges über die hier ansässigen Vögel erfahren kann. Für Leute die sich in der Natur wohlfühlen und es gemütlich mögen ist diese Unterkunft aufjedenfall empfehlenswert
