King’s Cottage: Listen to the stories

King's Cottage at Huso Lodge in Hemsedal, Norway

Some places can tell stories. Stories of people, places, history, and culture of the whole nation. Do you want to listen to these stories, or, even better, do you want to be a part of these stories? Come with us to King’s Cottage. On the hill surrounded by a lake and forest, with a magnificent view of the Skogshorn mountain, you will feel where your roots are.

Place to be

Since ancient times, we have been shaped by natural laws that we cannot ignore. We cannot simply close the door in front of them. That’s why we at Huso Lodge decided to do the exact opposite. We invite history to our cabins, but at the same time do enjoy all the conveniences that the 21st century has to offer. We had this in our minds when we renovated the cottage in cooperation with an award-winning interior designer from New York. Now, after refurbishing, an original Norwegian wooden cabin combines modern minimalism in bedrooms and gallery showroom in shared rooms. Into the new interior we have incorporated all the objects that are bonded with the cottage more than we are – original paintings, old photographs, and also unique pieces like a clock in the hallway. Thanks to this, you will have an opportunity to live the story with the cabin.

King’s Cottage offers a wealth of privacy. Located further up in the hill from the main Huso Lodge, only unspoiled nature will be your company. Although Hemsedal is a well-known holiday destination, a huge advantage of King’s Cottage is its location 20-minutes outside the town which allows you to enjoy the Scandinavian Alps without the crowds of other tourists. But you can also find privacy inside the cottage. Bedrooms on the second floor have cozy reading armchairs for your calm moments with tea, book, or journal.

What to do

Adventure outside by day and gather inside by night, any time of year. This is exactly what describes the cottage the best. You won’t be able to count all hiking, biking, and cross-country skiing trails that are located around your new basecamp. If the Norwegian winter is associated with a heated sauna and an outdoor hot tub, the Norwegian summer is associated with a clean lake offering cooling off after a demanding sports performance. You can use all the options during your stay at King’s Cottage.

The view of the Skogshorn mountain won‘t leave you calm until you climb the mountain. Families and hikers usually choose the east-side approach that doesn’t require climbing, on the other hand, climbers will fall in love with the south-side walls of the mountain. Skogshorn is also a part of Hemsedal Top 20, so if you are into hiking, we recommend you reach more peaks in the area.

Sunny terrace

Two south-facing terraces will convince you to enjoy moments of peace right on the doorstep of your cottage. The terrace on the first floor is great for cooling off after a sauna or for yoga sessions and other group activities. On the other hand, the second-floor terrace is equipped with outside furniture and a grill for enjoying the time with your loved ones.

If you want to bring back home a truly unique experience from Hemsedal, try one of the outdoor activities that the location offers. During the summer you can try fly fishing, Via Ferrata, or river snorkeling, while during the winter we recommend ice climbing, snowmobiling, or horse sledding. If you want to make also children happy, go for horseback riding or dog sledding.
