Booked our night well in advance with no problems. My birthday treat! My son and I rode our motorbikes from Oslo and planned the route so we could take in the fantastic scenery. We stopped here 2 years ago and this time planned to arrive on a Saturday when the "Stamp" is heated and the Barstu steamy. A hot tub and sauna overlooking the most beautiful lake is certainly the way to relax after a long ride. Bring you own booze though.

The food in the evening was amongst the best I have eaten (I collect Michelin stars for a hobby) and excellent value.

The room was basic but more than adequate, the breakfast was treat... homemade bread, butter and cheese... seriously great.

I will certainly be back and would recommend this little bit a paradise to everyone.

Stay at this hotel if you'd like to experience the mountainous regions of southern Norway. This boutique hotel reflects the Norwegian decor, foods and experience. It's much better than a typical hotel.

Haukeliseter is located directly off of E134, which makes it easy to get to. We stayed in one of the suites, which was large for European standards. While staying at this hotel you are within minutes of many
good long and short hikes around the lake.

You'll find many charming characteristics at Haukeliseter in the rooms and the lodge. The clean rooms feel like cabins with unfinished
wood furniture and the lodge is a cozy place to relax and view the mountains from the large windows. You can find snow here during the summer, but don't worry, it's not cold! Also, don't forget to look up as you leave the lodge. You'll see the goat who grazes on the grass which covers the roof of the lodge.

If you're hungry, consider making reservations at the restaurant instead of the cafe. We had a 3 course meal that was absolutely fabulous! They served lamb that night and did provide a fish dish for our non-meat eating friend. The breakfast buffet was just as good as dinner with locally made goat cheeses and meats. Plus, you can make your own waffles - a Norwegian treat!

The wilderness spa activities were not open during the weekdays. But, you could rent kayakes. Plus, you can take rides on the seaplane, which lands on the lake directly in front of the hotel. There are several table next to the lake where you can sit and relax. We stayed at this hotel for one night as we were traveling through Norway. So, I'm not sure if there are many day trips you can take from this hotel.

Veldig koselig!
