This place really should be better known as it is a very special place run by very kind, caring people. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Not hugely luxurious, but there is no need for luxury when you are surrounded by such beauty and quiet. There is everything you need. There are fantastic wild wilderness walks on the doorstep...

We decided to try this place for our business meeting and it was a very nice surprise. Surrounded by a lake and nature in autumn colours just next to the Russian border made the stay a bit out of the ordinary. Friendly and service-minded staff also made the stay nice. The rooms are not so big but wasn't a problem... More

An hotel strike in Norway meant we had to be relocated and fortunately we were placed here for our overnight accommodation in an exceptionally comfortable bed. The location was stunning overlooking a gently thawing lake bordered by beech trees. Our hosts were friendly and most helpful. As we hadn't eaten, they made some delicious soup on our arrival. Breakfast was... More

A very enjoyable and memorable stay near to the Russian border. The cabin was clean, warm and comfortable, but fairly basic. We had great sleeps after walking and touring around the area, especially after the dog sledging at the nearby Snow Hotel. Unfortunately the owner of Sollia Gjestegard sold his dog teams about a year before our stay, so we... More

“There are some cabins with log burners and some with separate bedroom / sitting room. If you need separate rooms (like if your partner snores really badly) ask for the one with a separate bedroom. In winter BRING SPIKES for your shoes.”
