“True Scandinavian Experience”
Reviewed January 6, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

I had a great time staying at the Pike Paradise Lodge. This property is located in a small village surrounded by amazing nature, so it´s exactly what I was looking for this trip. The hosts were welcoming and helpful, we learned a lot about the numerous activities and attractions around the area from them; they made our stay feel more homelike.
The accommodation itself was nice and included everything one needs; the kitchen was quite big and just great, internet connection was very fast. There was a supermarket some minutes away from the house and that was also very convenient. Last but not least this is a pet friendly house, which was crucial for us, because we traveled with a dog.

“Lovely accommodation and staff”
Reviewed December 7, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Our stay was very pleasant at Pike Paradise Lodge. The house was tidy and beds were comfortable, and there were much space for our group that consisted of eight people. The staff was very friendly as well. We were on our way back home to Finland from our band's, The Scenes', UK tour and that's why we stayed only one night, could have stayed much longer! 5/5.

“it was fantastic!”
Reviewed November 27, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We were a group of 11 people and this house exactly suited to us! It was big, unexpensive and had everything we needed. If you want to live the nature, then this is the the place to rent. And I have to say that we had this fantastic experience also thank to the owners! They have been always super kind, offered us help from the beginning, recommended us places to visit, taught us how to swim in the frozen lake and, above all, invited us to their house for a dinner! This was amazing because we could learn more about some swedish traditions and get more in contact with local people.
I strongly recommend this house if you want to live the swedish nature and meet so nice local people!

“Awesome experience in the North”
Reviewed November 26, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

When we went on this trip with a bunch of students to see some lovely nature and have a good time, we were looking forward to it. This place however exceeded our expectations in a huge way. The accomodation feels like an absolute home and the owners are really helpful. They showed us all the nice things in the neighbourhood and helped us do some amazing things like ice swimming and sightseeing. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to see a wonderful place in the north of Sweden.

“Pure Swedification”
Reviewed November 25, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

With 11 people we stayed in Pike Paradise Lodge for five nights. We as ERASMUS students from different countries wanted to see more of winterly Sweden and decided to drive near Skellefteå with the particular aim to see polarlights. The house is set in the village of Kusfors, 45 mins from Skellefteå, surrounded by river Skellefteälv and lakes, woods, reindeer, old houses - beautiful.

The acccomodation was cozy, suitable for a larger group of persons, including a kitchen full with kitchen stuff I myself do not possess at home, I think we even saw a waffle maker. When it gets too cold the fire place in the lounge works perfectly.

With the help of our hosts we found the place where we might see reindeer, what we did on that particular place, were introduced to a friend and his 54 huskies (including 3 puppies). Thanks to a minimum to a nothingness of lightpollution we were able to see the breath-taking nightly sky of the northern hemisphere and the greenish shimmering of polar lights. Besides that the city of Arvidsjaur was totally worth a daytrip including the hike of Jan Svensamössan, where we enjoyed the frozen world of Swedish Lapland in the setting sun. Another trip included the partly frozen rapids of Storforsen, 1.5 hours of drive.
Our hosts were so happy to meet us and we made a dinner party with German, Spanish, Italian and of course Swedish food (Surströmming!) and even prepared an ice-hole to introduce us to winter swimming. Thank you so much Martine and Lasse!

“Amazing house and hosts!”
Reviewed November 25, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This house is so confortable! It has the perfect size for a group. For instance, we were 11, and had no problem at all. The house is in a little town called Kusfors, so the lack of light pollution allows to seeing the milky way and the norther lights! =) we had so much fun! There is so much to do around the area, that we didnt have enough time in one week! and the owners were amazing. Martine and Lasse offered us any help from the very beggining till the end. They invited us for dinner, recommended us to go to different places, they brought us to a husky farm, some of my friends even did a frozen lake dip with them. They are trully lovely and caring people and I would love to see them again in the future. Totally recommended!

“fabulous experience.”

Our first time in Sweden/Scandanavia and what an experience.
The house is in a stunning location with a beutiful lake only 300 metres away. Surrounding the house is pine woodland. The village itself is very quiet and peaceful with a suprisingly well stocked shop that had everything we needed for our week long stay.( except wine and spirit, this you have to buy from one of the excellent state run outlets).
The house itself was spacious and comfortable and had all the gadgets/equipment we needed. We particularly liked the outdoor verandha and the wood burning stove. The extensive open grounds around the property gave it a sense of space and tranquility. traffic noise was almost non-existent as the road had very little traffic.
one of the highlights of our holiday was watching our two lads (10 and 13) cathcing pike in the nearby lake. They have only fished a few times and are by no means experts but they had no difficulty in catching and landing a few pike each while we cooked lunch on the fire-pit by the shore. Magic day.
The thing that really made this a special experience for us was the help,advice and support we got from the owner Martine and her husband Larrs. They live at the other end of the village and nothing was too much trouble for them, they were quick to answer our many queries and helped to sort out numerous activities. they seemed genuinley interested in making sure we had a really good experience.
