Rent our homey cottage right next to Lake Hjälmaren. Here the wooden floors are smooth and you will fall asleep to the sound of the waves from outside. In "Linus hus" there is a fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, a living room, a bathroom with shower and WC, a loft with two rooms, six berths and with possibilities for two spare beds. A cot and a high chair can be arranged for the small ones.
Note! The cottage is also cozy to stay in wintertime.
There are just a few metres to the lake with your own beach and good fishing possibilities. Boat included and life jackets available to lend.
Public swimming spots with nice sandy beaches and kiosk open during the summer season within five minutes by car.
You have the guesthouse on your own with your own garden including garden furnitures, swings to the children and a barbeque together with a barbeque area by the lake.
Here you can apart from play and fish for example take the boat on beaver safari and there are also good chances to see other wild life in the surroundings.
Other things to note:
The cottage is in the countryside. In the spring and summer there may be wild birds and animals settling down in nature around. For example, it may mean that you can hear noise like birdsong and quitters.
Our garden is next to the guesthouse garden, but with thick hedges between that gives privacy.
Our kids are outdoor enthusiasts. They may be in and around the backyard after school and on the weekends.
At the farm there are also horses, hens, rabbits, cats and a little dog.
Swap days Sundays.
Please not that pets are not welcome.
