Nice rural getaway
We booked the family cottage, but due to water issues, we were not able to stay in it. Instead, we were given two separate rooms next to each other. A bit of an inconvenience with the family separated since we had to walk outside to get between rooms, but the rooms were new and clean. The included breakfast was great. A very nice family owns/run the guesthouse. The owner's grandchildren played with our son out in the snow one day. We will always remember this stay because it was where our five year old was able to see snow for the first time. Also where he made his first-ever snowman. A few notes for aurora hunters, the mountains next to the guesthouse block the horizon so seeing distant auroras is a bit more difficult. We booked this guesthouse because it was out in the middle of nowhere so we could get away from the lights. The property had a lot more light noise than I expected since the bright barn and building lights are on.
