A typical Swedish little red cottage dating to early 1800s, which lies next to a small bird lake and with the Swedish forest surrounding the area. Large grass lawn to run around, safe, tranquil and rich in wildlife. A peacefull paradise.
The cottage contain 6 rooms and a kitchen, bathroom and two hall ways. The cottage looks small from the outside, but when steeping in, the concept of small changes to a much larger. The cottage easily can hold 6-7 individuals. The windows are large and there are plenty of them, the roof is low (190 cm) just like it was back in the days. A cosy and comfy cottage the whole family can hold!
The guest has access to the bathroom with a shower & toilet and the kitchen with a stove, oven, large freezer, fridge and dishwasher. Washing machine can be arranged if asked for. There is toaster, egg-boiler and other kitchen electronics. There is also a BBQ to use, game equipment for indoor and outdoor - for summer and winter. Chairs and tables for outdoors can also be used and is easy to move around to your favorite spot. If needed, Internet is accessible through a wire and we are working on getting access to a wifi zone. There is a TV in the cottage for those rainy nights where you can watch your dvds :) Bicycle can be arranged. In winter ice skating can be done on the lake - if frozen :)
Interaction with guests
50 meter from the cottage is the house of the owners. The owners will be there (most likely) all the time, but will of course leave the guest alone. The owners are there for you, as much as you like. If you wonder where to go, what to see and where to buy food, they will gladly help you. Just let them know what type of guest you are!
Other things to note
Further tips for things to do in the surroundings, will gladely be given by the owners. Just ask!
The bathroom is perhaps the uncharmiest room, due to iron in the water, the bath tub, zink and toilet are stained. Nothing dangerous, just not nice looking. The host is aware of this issue and is planning a renovation of the bathroom the coming years.
The kitchen, living room, entrance room, hallway and main bedroom were renovated in 2015/ 2016. The cottage has a new roof and the wooden floor in most rooms have been polished.
The water in the tap is drinkable, but taste a bit of iron, this is not dangerous!
Everyone wants guest who take care of their own trash and mess. So do we. Guest throwing trash in the nature or destroying the surroundings are not welcome. We want guest who are responsible and literary treats our home as theirs. Smoking is allowed outside if disposed afterwards in a separate container. The owners are recycling everything that can be recycled including food - cigarettes however, needs to go in the general waste. Music is allowed to be played outdoors loud but not in a disturbing level. The house rules are simple: If you as a guest respect the house, its surroundings and the owners, the owners respect you and leave you in peace.
