You will find peace and be close to the nature here in beautiful Dalsland. You have the idyllic cottage, the beach and a large area around the cottage to yourself. The place is very basic, but you have what you need and the charm factor is very high.

The space
Gäststugan is situated by the lake Laxsjön, 16,2 km2 big in Bengtsfors municipality in Dalsland. Laxsjön is a part of Dalsland kanal (channel system). Laxarby is situated approx. 6 km from the centre of Bengtsfors, approx. 180 km from Oslo, Norway and approx. 170 km from Gothenburg/Göteborg.

There are beautiful trails only 500 meters from the property, great for hiking or biking. Peaceful and quiet areas in the forest and by the lakes.

The guesthouse "Gäststugan" is a part of the property Laxarby Prästgård.

As a guest at Gäststugan you can use the cabin, the beach and the areas around the cabin all to yourself.

Check-in from 14:00, check-out by 12:00.

When you book with us, you are obliged to read the house guide before arrival. It is designed so you can easily find the place and get the most out of your stay.

Let us know how many guests you are when you book so we can prepare the right number of beds (maximum 3).

There is no water in the cabin.
Summer-water by the outdoor kitchen and by the solar shower. (Summer-water = drinking-water from a hose from the main house) We recommend you bring water for drinking, or boil the water before drinking it.
If you need hot water, you can heat it at the gas stove in the kitchen.

Electricity is mainly for the fridge and for charging mobile phones. There is no lights or electric heating. There are candle lights in the cabin.

The sleeping couch in the living room is comfortable for two persons with a thick matress topper. There is also an extra single bed in the living room.

Outdoor toilet with composting approx. 50 meters from the cabin.

Washbasin in the kitchen.

Outdoor solar shower approx. 50 meters from the cabin.
Heated by the sun. If it is very cloudy or the air is cold, the water will not be especially warm. When the sun is shining, the water will be very hot.

There is a walk of approx. 400 meters from the parkinglot to the cabin. There is a trolley at your disposal if you have a lot of baggage. We recommend backpacks and not a trolley case.

The main road is approx. 500 meters away, on days with little wind you may hear some traffic.

There is a gas-barbeque, outdoor kitchen and a fireplace by the cabin. If you need extra wood for the fire, you will find it by the old, red barn near the parking. In dry summer seasons outdoor fire may be prohibited. Always be careful!

There is also a gas stove in the kitchen.

There are two sturdy kayaks at your disposal. Paddles and life jackets in size S. M & L is located in the pillow case outside the cabin.

No wifi. There is 4G coverage in the area.

Want to bring your pet? That's OK, but do inform us in advance and be aware you must clean the cabin yourself before you leave.

When you stay at Gäststugan you live in an environmentally friendly way. All waste is recycled, and the electricity comes from hydropower and wind power. Remember to put your waste in the correct recycling bins.

Please treat the cabin as if it was your own and leave it tidy and in a good condition.

Each year we try to improve Gäststugan. Therefore it might be small changes since your last visit.
