The wooden town of Hjo is located on Lake Vättern between Gothenburg & Stockholm. The city structure is almost exactly the same as in medieval times. The steamship S/S Trafik is one of the oldest steamships in Sweden. In the summer, it goes on small trips, to Visingsö, the biggest island in the lake.

The guest house is situated in a stunning garden setting near lake 10mins drive north of Hjo. A smaller guest house is also available for 2.

The space

A unique garden setting with a lot of character and an opportunity to stay in a traditional Swedish "Stuga".

The large cottage has a traditional sauna, board games, books, music & pool table. TV/DVD can be requested.

There is also an authorised skin treatment & pool on site which can be booked for a surcharge for those who want that little extra.

Guest access

If requested full access to the garden can be granted during most times of the year. The space covers 1 ha of garden with unique species of trees & plants.

The lake is only 15 mins walk, including a private harbor, picnic area and most importantly swimming!

Interaction with guests

Assistance is always available.

We had a very good (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication was very good. The place is perfect, we could enjoy the sauna, pool table and barbecue. The proximity with the lake Vatten was very enjoyable, we had swimming from a semi-private jetty and a pic-nic there only 10min walk from the house.

Great, quiet, scenic cottage. Very easy to get to Hjo or Karlsborg. Very well kept and beautiful interior/exterior. Great hosts and went out of their way to make us comfortable.

A gem nestled just outside Sjo; truly a feast for the senses -- amazing hosts, David and Lena, most hospitable/gracious, always checking to our needs, made our 3-week vacation a memorable one. The formality of the design of the property's landscape truly was breathtaking/therapeutic; the accommodations were impeccably clean and substantially furnished with very tasteful decor. This facility can be compared to a world-class hotel.

We stopped by on our way to Astrid Lindgrens Värld. Great hosts and the stay fit our family of 5 (1 toddler) perfectly. Visited Hjo and David recommended a couple of places to eat. The place has a trampoline and other stuff for the kids to play with.
