This cabin in the Gausta region of Norway is exactly what we love – a deeply cosy dwelling designed thoughtfully with lots of interior details and with a world of natural beauty at its doorstep.
Build in a classic Norwegian style, the cabin has recently undergone an extensive renovation, and the result is one of a stylish, upscale mountain lodge. Inside, elegant and contemporary furnishings have been seamlessly fused with traditional dark wooden panelling to create a warm refined atmosphere. The cabin stretches across two storeys, and is designed to comfortably accommodate twelve guests in five bedrooms.
On the ground floor you will find a fully-equipped kitchen, adjacent to a wonderful open-plan living and dining space. Large velvet armchairs, a comfortable sofa and a wood burning fireplace, invites guests to sink into relaxation while watching the sun dip behind the mountains. Three of the cabin’s bedrooms are located on the ground floor; two double bedrooms and a family bedroom with a double bed and an upper single bed (bunk-bed). Additionally, there is a bathroom, an in-house sauna and an entrance way with plenty of storage space.
Moving upstairs, the second floor is home to a television-room with a comfortable sitting area, Apple TV and playstation. This is a true delight for kids and perfect for the occasional rainy day. Also on this floor there is a second bathroom and two further bedrooms; a double bedroom and another family bedroom with a double bed and an upper single bed (bunk bed).
Wander outside to find an expansive wrap-around terrace and enjoy the breathtaking views of the surroundings; from the endless highland plateau of Hardangervidda, to the Gausta summit. The cabin is located on a quiet cul-de-sac with hiking terrain and ski-in / ski-out right next to it.
Additional amenities include a laundry room for convenience, a BBQ grill, a fire pit and own private parking with space for up to four cars.
