Place to be

Sustainability is the key. When we decided to renovate this traditional Norwegian wooden log cabin, together with an award-winning interior designer from New York we agreed to keep the spirit of the place. We used the potential that the cottage had and combined the original building with modern elements. After the reconstruction in 2020, the Lakeview Cottage’s interior is trendy, updated and provides plenty of space for group enjoyment.

Impressive south-facing views looking over a lake and the valley beyond made us open up the walls and built a new spacious reflection room with a large window facing the countryside. To be even closer to the charming scenery, we extended the room with an outside deck.

The real treasure of this cabin is an exclusive panorama room situated on the second floor. Just imagine waking up with the feeling of living among the top of the trees and clouds! Three big windows offer a stunning view across the whole front side of the room. Don’t be fooled, other bedrooms are extra special too. The wooden headboard for each bed was made from Huso lodge burned wood.

If the mountains call you, Lakeview Cottage will be the perfect basecamp for all your outdoor adventures. In addition to the countless sports activities that the location offers, you will also enjoy the opportunity to relax in the cottage after demanding days.

What to do

The Scandinavian Alps, as Hemsedal and its surroundings are often called, are a year-round destination. Right outside the cabin, you can jump on to many cross-country skiing trails during winter or hiking and biking trails during summer. Within a 20-minute drive, you can reach Norway’s most famous ski slopes. On sunny days you will also enjoy a private lake which is suitable for both swimming and boating.

After an active rest, treat yourself and use all the possibilities that the cottage offers to relax. Generous terrace across the whole front side of the cottage makes it a perfect place for a grill party, gathering around a big fire-pit with food and good wine, watching a bright night sky in the winter, or midsummer sun during the summer. If you desire a deeper connection with nature, use the terrace for mindfulness time through meditation or yoga practice.

You are welcome to warm up in the sauna for five people or in the outdoor hot tub. Remember that the tub is a traditional wooden badestamp, so if you want to use it, you need to heat it a few hours before.

We all know that there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes, but if you decide to spend the day inside, you will appreciate a spacious kitchen as well as a dining room. Enjoying the food right next to a huge warming fireplace will make a cozy atmosphere enticing you to lie down on the couch and watch TV. A view better than any TV show will give you a huge corner window, easily reached with your eyes from the couch too.
