Very good - warm and comfortable cabins with hot tub. Excellent food - both breakfast and evening buffet. Packed lunches are also possible. Hotel sells maps needed for hiking or ski touring. Helpful & friendly hosts.

A bit worn out hotel, noisy between rooms. The shower is "on top" of the 🚾. Nice location for skiing. Very soft beds. Is missing proper ventilation. Nice view from the rooms heading south against the lake and the mountains.

Nice cabin with plenty of room in the very north of the country. Has a nice kitchenette where you can cook meals yourself (which saves a ton of money). Nice little grocery store nearby, and the views from the property are spectacular.

We booked the small cabin for one night for 3 adults. There is one bedroom with two single beds. In the kitchen there is a loft with a bed, accessible by a ladder. And under the loft in the kitchen is a pullout couch. It's just about enough space for 3 adults but you would be unlikely to hang out...

Check-in was very smooth and there is free coffee, tea and cookies near the front desk. We were in the first cabin nearest the main building. The photos provided by the owner can be deceiving, however. While we did have a small body of water behind the cabin, you're not in an isolated rural area as there is a parking...

Great cabins with a rustic feel. Two separate rooms great for families. Wonderful hot tub on the side of the porch to enjoy the beautiful views. Free kayaks to enjoy the lake! Driving through the one way tunnels was an adventure!

The cabin was well equipped and warm. The hot tub was also really good, was lovely coming back after a busy day and relaxing in this. The shower is a bit small, but other than that everything was really nice and clean. Enjoyed our stay here.

The cabin was cozy and warm when we arrived. This was welcomed since it was so cold outside. The kitchen was well stocked and allowed us to share a nice family meal. The hot tub was fun to star gaze from.

“Book one of the 2-3bedroom cabins as the have the best view. 3bed cabins have the best view and are more private. Showers are really small so be aware if you are clostrphobic ”
