Firstly, I have to say that Marianne was a wonderful host. She was very helpful and accommodating and extremely generous in making sure that we had everything we needed, including fresh eggs and vegetables from her farm. The house was cute and had a certain early twentieth century patina. The bedroom up the skinny staircase was bright and the bed cozy. The wood stove in the living room takes a while to get going but but does the trick after a while, and Marianne was generous on this count as well, telling us to simply use as much wood we needed. Cooking was made enjoyable as the house is well equipped with very good pans and knives. The view west out across the lake (not a fjord) from the kitchen was also enjoyable. The outhouse is about as nice as they get and the shower, although a little work intensive, is a pretty good option and perfectly functional. The house is the oldest and most authentic around, but it is not alone. There were actually a dozen or so houses quite close by, and people were generally pretty busy doing yard work - something to consider if you are looking for total quiet. Lastly, the lake is nice to swim in, there are a number of good hikes to be made from the house.
