About This Listing
The livingroom showing the couch and the smaller sitting group by the window. Today we have two identical small sofas.
This cabin with view of the fjord, is located only 10 min by car from the center of Drøbak (45 mins from Oslo).
Outside there's a spacious deck and a large uncultivated property. There's also a small porch outside the panoramic windows. The inside features a large living area with panoramic windows (facing south towards the fjord), a large couch, a fireplace and a sitting-group by the window with two smaller couches. The kitchen is small but functional with hot/cold water, refrigerator and gas stove. There is a freezer in a basement accessible from the outside. Two of the bedrooms have bunk-beds (2 per room) and the master bedroom features a queen-size bed. Just outside the living-room (accessible from the porch there is a small washroom with a sink, but no WC. There is an outhouse (latrine) on the property for the private matters :)
A secluded beach (with excellent fishing oportunities) is just a quick stroll from the cabin. There is also a large recreational area by the seafront in the centre of historical Drøbak.
This is a quiet cabin neigborhood in a lovely coastal forest area. It is not uncommon to see/hear Roe (deer), Mink and other forest animals, so don't get startled if you hear some rustling in the woods nighttime. :) There is no TV, internet, etc but the fireplace and the sunset is plenty entertaining on summer nights. There is also an outdoor fireplace integrated in the patio.
Drøbak is a typical cozy Norwegian coastal village with lushious gardens, small white houses and cozy alleys. It's not a bad place to spend an evening with a bucket of freshly boiled shrimps, a glass (or two) of white wine and a view of the sunset.
There's even a bar or two ;)

Really nice cabin, enough room for the kids to play. And a very nice at the oslo fjord.
The short holiday in Norway has been great also because we where lodge in the Hilde cabin, nice and confortable.
We loved our short stay at Havblick Cottage, as a Brit the outdoor WC and shower were a surprise but only added to a magical experience. Norway must be the most beautiful, cleanest and friendliest place we have ever visited.... why the would and the UK in general cant follow their lead is a mystery!!
Thanks again for the use of the cottage.
Un endroit superbe. Une vue géniale. Le calme et la nature au rendez-vous.
Une expérience (douche en plein air et toilettes à sec) inoubliable.
Mes amis et nous-mêmes en sommes revenus ravis.
Les hôtes sont super sympa et très attentionnés.
merci pour ce beau week-end
It was a very nice experience surrounded by nature with forrest and fjord in Hilde's house. She was a super nice host. My little boy really enjoyed being away from all the busy cities playing with rope swing hung down from s tree. I wish I could be back one day!
About the Host, Hilde Tunby
Hello, I`m Hilde! I live in a small community named Ärvika together with my husband, Svend-Inge. We are norwegian citizens, who moved to Sweden eight years ago. We enjoy travelling and meeting people from all around the world. Every summer we invite canoe campers to an informal summer cafè in our garden. Some of them even spend the night in their own tent here or down by the lake. This area is perfect for people like us who enjoy hiking in quiet landscape, enjoying silence, forest, lakes, flowers, fishing and a generous wildlife.
Our cabin, which is listed here at this site, has much of the same surroundings. The biggest difference is that this cabin is located near to Oslo fjord (salt water).
We wish you a warm welcome to our place in Arvika Sweden! :)
