Wir wurden an der Rezeption sehr freundlich empfangen und erhielten auch gute Tipps für die Reise. Das Haus hat eine besondere Atmosphäre, da auch die Sommerakademie darin untergebracht ist. Der Speiseraum und die Aufenthaltsräume sind sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und groß. Das Frühstück war sehr vielfältig. Man kann schon vom Haus aus mit Wanderungen beginnen. Andere Wandermöglichkeiten sind in unmittelbarer Nähe reichlich vorhanden. Die Küche für Selbstversorgen war etwas klein.

We were the only guest that night and that was a luxery experiance. Most of the buildings doors where open the whole night and that the reason why I set a low rating for Security,The information before the visit was very good. We also was astonished that a guy come up eight o´clock in the Sunday morning just to prepare a nice breakfast for four persons.Telemarkstunet was nice but it was a pity that it was closed.The season was over.

Es wäre schön, wenn es in der Gästeküche einen Toaster gäbe und ein Eisfach im Kühlschrank. In der Gästeküche kann maximal 1 Partei kochen, wegen dem 2-Plattenherd.
