About this listing
Welcome to Staviken, at Vänern! This family owned pearl has given many people the chance to relax in the midst of nature over the years. A perfect getaway for couples and families situated in the woods, with lake Vänern just 15 meters from the cabin. The cabin called 'Storstugan' (big cabin in Swedish) was built in the 1950's, renovated in the 1970's and has a living room with a fold out bed, a bedroom with 2 beds, and an additional bed next to the kitchen. The kitchen comes equipped with a large fridge and freezer, oven with a three plate stove, hot water and all kitchen appliances such as coffee maker, toaster, pots and pans, cups, glasses, plates, silverware and more. The livingroom has a dining table with six chairs (high-chair upon request) a coffee table and a sofa-bed. There is electic heaters throughout the cabin and there is also a fire place for those cosy nights.
Nearby about 500 meters from 'Storstugan' there are a few more cabins which are available to rent if interested, these vary in sizes and are slightly smaller all containing a fully equipped kitchen, beds, dining table and heating. More detailed information can be obtained by contacting us directly via email.
According to the owners, this is a great place, if you like fishing, swimming, mushroom- and blueberry picking, exploring nature- which literally is around the corner, have a lakeside barbecue, go paddling or just enjoy some quiet time and meditation. If you want, there are two towns nearby, Säffle, a bit smaller, 20 km's away and Karlstad, about 50 km's away.
There is no bathroom, so when needed, there is an old style outhouse, and showering can be done outside of the house with the use of a showerhead which attaches to the kitchen faucet. Or if you prefer a invigorating dip in the lake!
There is no food service included, shopping is available in the nearby town of Säffle. There is a set of bed clothing and towels per guest. Instructions on how to use the fireplace etc will be available inside the cabin.
What makes this place unique are a number of things - the fantastic view, the peace and quietness, the clean environment and the possibility to unwind and relax without the everyday stresses of city-life. We could not agree more!
We prefer to rent out to couples and families. All adults need to leave a proof of id with the host prior to moving in. There will be a list of cleaning duties that need to be completed by the time of vacating the cabin in order to retain the full deposit. Surroundings must be left as found, no breaking of branches or cutting down of trees is allowed. No fires are allowed on the rock surfaces or elsewhere except for in the designated fireplace. Sound levels has to be sensitive to neighbours as sound travel far over the lake especially at evenings. Canoeing is available upon request however 'at your own risk', we hold no liability for accidents at sea.

About the Host, Daniel
Family, sports, books and good food are things I need to have close by. I like to travel to places I haven't been to, after having researched them thouroughly. Dream destination? New Zeeland. Why? They seem to have everything there.
As hosts, my family and I want to make you feel welcome, but we stay out of your way. We think our place is fantastic, and want you to experience it on your own, with our help.
