Gripen farm: Skrivestova Writer's nest
Small cabin surrounded by wilderness
143 EUR /Night on average
The cabin is situated in the middle of the pasture at a small sheep farm, surrounded by green meadows and native forest. A big lake, Storavatnet, which is perfect for rowing and canoeing is nearby.
Perfect for friends who want to do some exploring, hiking, fishing, crafting, writing, or just be at the farm.
In the cabin, you will find a small double bed and an extra mattress. There is a compost toilet, running cold water outside, and electricity so you can charge your phone and can have some light. For heating, you will find a gas heater.
The cabin is also provided with a gas cooking stove and an electric kettle.
There is no WiFi in the hut, but there is WiFi available in the farmhouse.
We have a nice spot outside the cabin to sit by the bonfire at night. I provide firewood. It is possible to borrow my boat/canoe for exploring the lake. It is a silent lake, so no motors are allowed. ;-) Gripen is a silent spot, it has very little sound pollution, and the same with light, so it gets very dark when it is dark. So here the stars shine bright.
It is a sheep pasture around the cottage, so it is important that my guests respect the sheep and do not scare them. No running, jumping, or loud voices near the sheep. That is the same for chickens, cats, and dogs. When you come to the house, the dogs will bark. It is two very small old dachshunds, and one Hungarian pumi, who is still young, and they are all very happy and enthusiastic. Despite the barking, they are very friendly dogs, and they just want to get to know you. It is also important to keep in mind that this is the countryside, and Gripen is actually a working farm with pastures and animals, surrounded by nature. I just say this to make you prepared for getting shit on your shoes! For the same reason, it is totally forbidden to walk inside the cabin with shoes. Use slippers or thick socks! I say this with a smile and a blinking eye! You will of course manage very well!
If you need extra mattress/bedding, let me know before you arrive. The same for some of the more special things, such as wine glasses. Just tell me what you need, and I will provide it for you. If something is missing, or if it is anything you lack or miss, just tell me, and I will do all I can to meet your wishes. :-)
If you stay for more than 1 night there will be a 10% discount for the following nights! The discount will automatically be added to the booking.
