Our very special and comfortable mountain cabin, called "Espedalstuen", is located in the hillside of the Lifjell Mountain near Bø. This is only 2 ½ hours drive from Oslo. The cabin was built in the late 1800s and has recently been renovated and redecorated. Here you can really relax, as Espedalstuen appears to be modern in a historic atmosphere.

The wood log atmosphere and open fireplace makes this a very Norwegian experience with high standard and great comfort. Welcome!

The space
The cabin has the following plan; 1st. floor: Hallway, stairway to the 2nd floor, kitchen w/dishwasher, integrated oven, hob and extractor fan, laundry room w/washing machine and wc, living room with fireplace and 2 built-in beds. 2nd. floor: Gallery room with nice view over the valley, hallway, bedroom 1: double motorized bed and two built-in beds + wardrobe (private). Bedroom 2: double bed. Tiled bathroom with sink, shower and wc. Heated tile floors.

Guest access
As you rent the whole house, you can use all rooms and the whole garden.

Other things to note
We have had experience with guests that was a little disappointed because of the "wild garden". But we live 7 hours drive from Lifjell, and it is not possible to keep the garden with lots of flowers. We try to "tame" the grass, but we do not use a lawn mower, as we do not want that "look", we want it to be more like a short meadow. Next summer we will have some spots with wild flowers here and there.

Garbage, you throw in the container right below the hotel (agreement with the hotel owner).
Remember to take out garbage the day you leave!

Location

Bø, Telemark, Norway

The cabin is located about 10-12 minutes drive from Bø center, where you find shops, some restaurants and about all you need. As the cabin is near the old and venerable Lifjell hotell (from 1897), it is obvious this is the best place on this side of Lifjell as they chose this place for the hotel. Now there is more cabins around in the neighbourhood, but the atmosphere is very quiet and nice.

Jeg er Karen Louise og er vert for flere veldig forskjellige utleieobjekter i tre land. Vi er en familie på fire med boxeren Sirkus, som bor på Ullevål i Oslo. Som nevnt er jeg vert for flere utleiesteder; Grottan - det store gamle huset på øya NordKoster i Sverige, Bryggerhuset med utedusj og utedo på Nordkoster, Hønsehuset som er like idyllisk som å være på telttur, en over 180 år gammel hytte på fjellet i Telemark, Norge og en leilighet i den historiske byen Paphos på Kypros. Innimellom er det også mulig å leie enkeltrom i Grottan - disse er listet opp som egne enheter. Sjekk ut hva som kan passe for deg! Vi er en ganske travelt opptatt familie, så vi kommer ikke til å henge rundt deg, hos oss får du fred og ro til å ordne deg selv. Men vi finnes tilgjengelig om du lurer på noe, og som vert setter jeg STOR pris på GOD KOMMUNIKASJON både i forkant av oppholdet og underveis. Håper du vil trives hos oss! :-)
