Real traditional norwegian "retro" mountain cabin located in walking/skiing distance to the town of ski-paradise Hovden. The cabin was designed by my architect grandfather and built in 1977. Its a large cabin with plenty of bedrooms, ideal for two families. The cabin is located directly on the most popular cross country skiing trail in Hovden, and only a few (3-5) minutes by car to the Alpine resort. You can park directly outside the cabin, and experience the norwegian ski-life in a real cabin!

The space
Included: Firewood, electricity, TV with channels, wifi, boardgames, kitchenware, sledges for small kids, DAB-radio and warm blankets.

What you have to bring: Bed linen/sleepingbags, towels, kitchentowels, toiletries (soap, shampoo, toiletpaper etc), candles and food (Small fridge in kitchen, but possible to store food cold in the annex).
It is possible to rent bed linen for 150,- per set.

As mentioned earlier the cabin is built for housing families. For example, every third bed in the cabin is a little shorter than normal and made for children/youths (myself, 190 cm, has slept well in these beds).

The cabin is located very close to all the most popular trails and slopes in Hovden. "The blue trail" (most popular skiing-trail) actually goes across the property, so you can just put on your skiis and slide right out into the trail that goes up into the fantastic mountains of Setesdalen. Here you can also experience a wide variety of norwegian wildlife, such as; reindeers, hares, fox, grouse and mountaintrout, for those who are into fishing.

A short drive (3-5 min) or walk you will find the centre of town (Hovden) Here you can find a variety of supermarkets, restaurant/cafees/bars, gas station, e-chargers (for el-cars/Tesla), waterpark/swimmingpool, alpine resort, SPA, boutiques, rental canoes etc.
