The Blue House Vacation home for 4 persons in an old mission church built in 1926, located in Björboholm at the large Lake Mjörn, in close vicinity to Gotheborg and Alingsås.
Björboholm and the large Lake Mjörn
At the turn of the 18th/19th cent. Björboholm was a popular watering and summer vacation spot for the well-to-do population of Göteborg. A train brought the people from Göteborg to Björboholm (30 km), who wanted to spend the summer months in the Swedish country site. Björboholm is located next to the large Lake Mjörn. It is the 17th largest lake in Sweden and has a length of 20 km. Old Björboholm lies partly on a romantic Peninsula. The view from the look-out point is breathtaking. There are 3 little islands, namely the Island of Love, of Faith and of Hope. The visitor can, with his/hers own boat, check out the small and large islands. Björboholm has its own hidden bathing bay. One is almost always alone there, especially on a summer morning. A paradisical place for swimming!
The Blue House
Björboholm has many beautiful, stately wooden homes dating back to the turn of the cent. and to the twenties. In the center there also existed a mission church, built in 1926, which was active until the eighties. In the mid eighties it was converted into a home. Until 2006 we have been the owners of this unusual home, called the `blue house`by the people of Björboholm. Our living room was once the loction for festivities like weddings, confirmations, Sunday religious service, christening ceremonies and many holidays. The dining area was once the place of the altar.
Our guests have the rectory and the little guard room at their disposal. The groundfloor offers a cozy eat-in kitchen with entry to the garden and a living room with a wood-burning fireplace. The upper floor has 2 bedrooms and a large bathroom. The are also dishwasher, washing machine, dryer and heat. 64 qm are just right for 4 people.
In good weather one can barbeque freshly caught fish. Please note: we have also a small motorboat! (rental is available after reservation). 2 bikes are waiting for our guests. The old train rails were turned into a bike path, moving along the lake, offering lovely views onto the water. After 4 km one has reached Gråbo, one can purchase at the local supermarket just about everything, even fresh fish in its own little fish hut. The bike path ends in Göteborg (30 km). In of rain, (which is a frequent occurrence in this region), there are wonderful Swedish activities to make up for it: berry and mushroom gathering in the Björboholm forest. This forest begins ca 200 meters behind the house. The collected treasures make a great meal. In addition we find in the area many small fishing and bathing lakes. Swedes like to fish during rain. An alternative to spendig a rainy day in a rainy forest is to catch a bus to and visit the metropolis of Gothemborg. The bus is called the Orange express. It stops in front of the house, practically and reaches Goteborg`s main station in ca 50 minutes. In good weather there are numerous opportunities for an excursion. We recommend highly a trip to the west coast or a boatride to Göteborg`s Islands.
