We have three cabins: “The Storehouse” (on pillars), “The Littlehouse”, and “The Yardhouse”. The Storehouse and the Littlehouse are old and charming buildings which are located within the frames of the Solhaug farm. Other buildings around the farmyard are the Pumphouse (with showers, WC’s, sauna), the barn (with dining room), a henhouse (with white Italians), a potato basement, and a Grillhouse (seats 12 people). There are several activities associated to the area. If you wonder what is included in the cabins, click here. We have also indicated what you might bring along.
Grillhouse is a popular spot at the evenings. There are room for about 15 people, and
many hobby-philosophers have been attending discussions until early hours.
Yardhouse is located approx. 200 meter away from Solhaug - close to the beach
and the forest.
the cabins are renovated during 1998 and 1999. We have installed water,
electricity, fireplaces, dishwashers, saunas, and more bedrooms. The places have
never been renter out before.

inheritance; with lumber walls and 100 years old floors. These two houses where
