Welcome to Björkhem!
Cosy cottages with beautiful view over the lake and plenty of space:
• Main cottage plus two minor guesthouses (max 6 persons)
• Very close to the lake
• Lovely nature, private place
• Tasteful and completely furnitured
”Björkhem”consists of a nice and tasteful furnitured cottage plus two minor guesthouses, “Sjöstugan” and “Annexet”. You have lots of space and it is a perfect place if you have friends, relatives, small or big children with you – or if you just want to have a place with stillness and peace for yourself. The cottage is owned by a Stockholm-based family with many children and grandchildren, so it is a very well equipped, private home.
The cottage has a big living room with two bedsofas and a table for eating, a sleeping room with two stand alone beds (which can be moved together to one), a bathing room with WC / shower cabin and washing machine and a kitchen.
The kitchen is very well equipped with coffee machine, electric kettle, stove, microwave, toaster, electric potato-peeler, fridge and freeze, electric handmixer and anything else you might need for you holidays.
There is also a traditional woodstove in the kitchen, you can use it for cooking or just to spread cosy warmth in the house.
The livingroom is very light with big windows facing the lake. You sit in comfortable sofas before the open fire stove or at the eating table (withdrawable). There is both stereo and TV in the livingroom, but the TV has no chance against the fantastic view over the lake…:-)
The veranda is big (32 squaremeter), there is BBQ and garden furniture and a big Hollywood swing.
The guesthouse “Annexet” with two stand alone beds (which can be moved together) is situtated very close to the main cottage, you just go some meters via the veranda. Also from this cottage you have a beautiful view over the lake, and you have a veranda of your own as well.
“We had a wonderful stay. The lake is awesome, we made good trips and hike in the area. For all 8 of us it was an adventurous and relaxing vacation. Greetings from Germany 🙂 Leo, Camillo, Joni, Sami, Feli, Paul, David, Maike. “September 2017
The other guesthouse “Sjöstugan” has also two stand alone beds (which can be moved together), so the residence is totalling 6 beds. The Sjöstugan is situated some meters downwards, just a few meters from the water. The view out of the window is fantastic and inspiring, it’s a perfect place for writing or composing music, or just enjoying:
Also in “Sjöstugan you have your own veranda and garden furniture.
There are children bed, children chair, many books and parlour games, life vests and toys, the owners of this cottage have themselves many children and grand children. There is a hammock between two big pine trees, and down at the pier there is both rowboat and Indian canoe. The ground plot is about 1 200 square meter, you don’t see the neighbours (and they don’t see you).
