Enjoy nature, embrace life and silence are the best ways to describe this mini-project out in the Norwegian forest overlooking the inland "fjord" - Krøderfjorden.
I am living here with my dog, cats and hens. My idea is to build up a place for small scale retreating.
This is a copy of a traditional Norwegian old "husmannsplass". The buildings are old, but top modern inside. Feedback from visitors are "wow", "this is a beautiful place", a "little Eden", "listen to the sound of silence....." and that people get happy feet here!
Still situated in the forrest, we have a magnificent view. We can look over to Valdres, Hallingdal og Nore and Uvdal. It you turn around you can see to Hønefoss and Sundvolden. And, the old building, this "tun" is a snapshot of "inland old norway".
Tourist places as Blaafargeverket, Hadeland glassverk, the Bearpark in Flå and galleries places can be visited.
I cook traditional Norwegian plates as well as "usual" international dinners, and my named is Kristin.
This spring and summer I will start the work with building a terrasse and an outside fireplace.
I have some maintenace (painting) and some working with a floor to do.
This place is acually 3 cabins, all 200 years, but moved here in 2005. The cabins are fully equipped with bedrooms, fireplace and kitchen.
Drivers licence is needed, if you have your own car it is preferable, but not a must.
This place is somewhat remote and still central, near to cities. 1,5 hours driving to Oslo and 1 hour drive to Drammen.
You need to drive to go to shops and visit turistplaces. Its exellent for walking. In 30 minutes you are at Norefjell!
