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.
Most likely for
Family & Group of friends
Large groups of friends or family members will perfectly fit into the King’s Cottage. With a total of nine bedrooms, the cabin accommodates up to twenty guests. The cottage provides plenty of interior and also exterior space for group enjoyment. If King’s Cottage sounds like a perfect spot for adults, you can be sure kids will love this place too. Few meters next to the cabin you find a children’s playground with a see-saw, swing, and teepee.
Yoga, Mindfullness & Sport retreats
Bring your retreat to King’s Cottage. Use multiple wooden decks around the lake for morning and afternoon exercise or group activities. Go for a group run or cross country ski into the woods. Compete or simply enjoy a peaceful canoe ride. Use your terrace grill or larger outside fire-pit for food gatherings in the evening. Be creative and use King’s Cottage to put together the best program for group retreats. It’s all here waiting for you.
Events and Celebrations
Just as a group of friends or colleagues coming for corporate team building will love the cottage, families will use the place perfectly for celebrations of any kind. Not far from the cottage you will find our two spacious halls, Chieftain’s Hall and Earth Dome, which you can use for family gatherings, birthday parties, or wedding receptions. Lifelong memories can arise also in an outdoor roofed shelter called Gapahuk. Its open-fire grilling and seating space area are normally open for the public but can be reserved privately as well.
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.
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.
