The house is on a dirt road which only has 2 family farms on it that have been there for generations. One of three main houses on our farm, this home is beautifully maintained and has all conveniences. The original homestead is just next door, which will be available by next year. It was built in the early 1800s and sleeps 6.
There's an excellent local bus system. The bus stops at the end of our dirt road. There are several local car rentals. If you like to cycle, the roads and terrain couldn't be better.

Anything that you break you have to replace.
You have to report any problems immediately so that they can be attended to. Leave the house in same condition you found it in. Pets are ok so long as they are well behaved. No smoking.
If you use the fireplace, open the vent first. Firewood is available. Keep fireplace grid on at all times. Clean fireplace, but only after the timbers are cold.
Treat the house with care and respect, as it has been created that way.
International traveller, art lover, adventure seeker. I live and work in New York city. I run my own business, as does my husband. I have a teenage son. My biggest love is this place in Northern Norway which is where my family originally is from.
My most savored moments are having coffee on the terrace, soaking in the sun and view, while listening to Radio Bø. It's heaven!
