A clean, comfortable, and charming typical Swedish cottage located in a small village located just 10 minutes away from the town of Linköping. The vibrant 19th century, red and white cottage is placed smack dab in the middle of Östergötland farm fields. This gem offers a quiet location for travelers to rest and relax or you make it a perfect base for your trip to southern Sweden.
The cottage is divided into an entryway, living room, full kitchen and a half bath. The living room has two 90 cm twin beds, a sofa, a big LCD-TV and a charming fully functional fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped and ready to be cooked in if you decide to dine in.
The half bath on the ground floor has a sink and toilet. New for the year is a brand new renovated attic, with a steep staircase to the rustic second floor. This area consists of a double bed and a full bath, wc, shower and sink.
The price as stated is for up to 2 persons and upon request we also provide up to three tent beds/semi comfy beds at a additional cost.
The cottage is a strictly non-smoking and peaceful location and we appreciate it that way, so if you are looking for parties and nightlife we recommend that you stay in Linköping.
The location of the cottage offers a number of outdoor nature activities. Only 100 meters away there is a nice lake. Beach access is approximately 1 km away. The nearby forests are great for leisurely walks and can also tease your taste buds with berries to pick at the end of the summer and delicious chanterelle mushrooms in the fall. If you like horse riding there is a big equestrian center with icelandic horses with tour riding arranged in the nice surroundings. We will help you to book the tour and you dont need any experience.
Other outdoor activities and family attractions nearby include the famous Göta Kanal, which was hand dug in the 19th century and connects the west and east of Sweden, an old Viking burial ground and rune stone, and a very old church. The burial ground and church are only a short drive down the road.
The cottage is perfect for a couple and could accommodate a small family with children. There are two big tourist magnets for families nearby: Kolmården Zoo (Scandinavias biggest) approx. 45 minute car ride North and "Astrid Lindgrens Värld" approx 1 hour south of us.
The easiest way to get to the University/City is by car (10 min) or by the bus (20 min). The bus stop is right outside the cottage but only offers 10 rides a day, in both directions.
The location is also very suitable for travelers looking for easy access to the highway E4, which is just 7 minutes away or for travelers needing a place to stay before an early flight out of the Linköping Airport (10-15 min), which offers daily flights to Copenhagen (SAS) and Amsterdam Schiphol (KLM). The nearby train station in Linköping also let travelers reach Stockholm in less then two hours and Copenhagen in three hours. There is also a 90 mins bus connection from Linköping direct to Stockholm/Skavsta several times a day. Stockholm/Skavsta is a Ryanair Hub for Sweden with tons of destinations in Europe and North Africa.

The great surroundings, nice gravel walking paths through the landscape. Since we live on the same lot we care for your visit and we got a beach access with a private dock behind our house. You are welcome to use it with respect. In the lake we provide row boats, there are also a lot of fish for angling in the lake.
The room is cozy, comfortable and very beautiful ! We adored the fireplace, especially when it's cold during the night there. The kitchen is full equipped and Magnus gave us some tips as where to get groceries. It was a very good experience in spite that the shower was out of order. ( but Magnus offered us to used it over his place.)
Magnus and his wife were the perfect hosts, they came over to the cottage to check we were OK and offer advise on what to do and where to go in the area. They were more like friendly neighbors than the owners of the property.
The cottage itself was lovely, just like the pictures and I would recommend staying there if you are ever in the area. Plenty to do and see, so it makes a good base.
I recommend hiring bikes and cycling along the canal, and if it's hot there are plenty of places to swim. They even have a lake at the end of their garden.
I would definitely recommend staying there.
We have been in this beautiful cottage with my housband, our two kids (3 and 4 years) 5 nights in August. I'ts a very nice location for summer time. This is a really beautiful and peaceful place to spend some days. It's a ideal place for children because Magnus and Anna have a litlle playground where they can use all the time. We can enjoy both children and adults.
The lack is 1 minute away and they have small boat that we used sometime.
Highly recommended. The cottage was very clean and comfortable well equipped kitchen, near to LinKoping. 5 minuts by car.
Magnus and Anna are very open and friendly people. .Thank you for take care of us, giving advices about to do with childrens around the Linköping and thank you for your hospitality.
We recommend this magic place 100%
Nuria and family
We stayed in this little traditionnal cottage for one night, it is very cute, in the countryside.
The lake is actually at the end of their garden !!!
It was a quiet and pieceful place, perfect to relax.
Also we have done a BBQ and the sun sets on the cottage...!
Magnus and his family where very friendly. Magnus provided us very good tips of nice places to stop before and after our stay in their cottage.
I stayed only one night in Magnus's cottage, it's a lovely cottage as described on the picture. Magnus is very helpful and friendly. For sure, we will advise that place to other people.
Our overnight stay at the cottage was wonderful!! Everything was like we expected (clean, comfortable, well equipped and just a few meters away from the lake) we really enjoyed a morning bath in the lake. Next time we would like to stay longer :) we recommend the cottage to everyone searching for relaxing time in the country side!
We really enjoyed the stay in the charming cottage house on the countryside. We were just one night there, but it really worth it to stay for a longer time. The cottage is reachable by public transportation, but it's easier to go there by car. Magnus and Anna were suuper helpful and they really cared about us. We can recommend them to everyone!
Spending six nights in the cottage was an absolute joy! The location, in the midst of farmer's fields and forests, but only a 5 to 10 min drive from Linköping, provides a perfect mix between activity and relaxing. Just what we were looking for.
The actual place is well equiped and decorated. A true Swedish country look. The fact that the (private) entrance to the lake - one clean lake it is - is only a 100m walk is pure luxury. And than there's the family's hospitality: great!
We'll be back!
A great first airbnb experience! Great location on a quiet street overlooking a gorgeous countryside. Magnus and Anne were very friendly and incredibly helpful. The gods were with us during our 10 days (only one rainy day) and we took a refreshing dive in the lake almost every day, or went out with the rowing boat in the evening to admire the beautiful sunsets. As they say in Sweden.... Vi ses...see you. And yes, we will be back for more.
We (couple and 2 grown-ups) stayed 1 night on our travel to Finland. The pictures are representative: this is a very Swedish cabin, cosy and attractive. Everthing is clean and complete.
The lake is a 5 minutes walk, the quietness is healthy, with plenty of space. The double bed is very good (2 extra beds are available). Indeed no shower (now), but for a short stay this wasn't a problem. The kitchen is nice and complete, with dining table and big fridge.
Magnus is a good and friendly host, he lives close by with his family and will help and advise you. Wifi available.
We really enjoyed the stay.
