A truly one of a kind converted storage house at Bjerke farm, 5 minute from Lillehammer center by car. Looking over the city across the river delta, this 17th century farm is both private and centrally placed within Norways wintersport area.

Guest access

The tower house has four bedrooms, two on the ground floor and two mezzanines at 2nd floor. Seperating these floors are two dining rooms and a kitchen.

As the 2nd floor are mezzanines they do not have doors, but are accessed using staircases from the dining rooms. Nevertheless they are according to guests quite private and quiet, as there would only be people on the 2nd floor during meals.

The ground floor south has one double bed and two single beds, the ground floor north (the seed chamber) has one double and one single bed. There are quaint showers in the each ground floor rooms and two equally quaint showers in the hallway. In the hall there are also two shared toilets.

With regards to these facilities and the mezzanines the tower house is absolutely brilliant for groups who know each other, as privacy can be limited yet easily managed among friends.

Interaction with guests

During certain events (like the olympics) breakfast is served in the main buildings by the host family. Jan and Johanne lives in one of the main buildings, whereas Johanne's father Ole Henrik and his wife Annikken lives in the other. It was Ole Henrik and Annikken who rebuildt the tower house and the barn to enable the farm to have a lot of guests. It is this tradition the new generation, Johanne and Jan, seek to continue.

This place is a one in a lifetime experience, i think everyone should visit it atleast once! Me and my friends would definently go there again sometime and we have no complaints at all, Jan was so nice to us and took care of everything for us, as soon as we needed anything or asked something it was there the next morning. I would really recommend anyone to visit this cozy clocktower, there's so much room and place for alot of people, kitchen, bathrooms, heat, bedrooms, everything was just plain perfecg for us on our skiing trip!

Extremely charming farm with a vintage feeling, plenty of stories and breathtaking view! We stayed in Bjerke Gård for a weekend in February and can totally recommend the place! The house is unique and very spacious, also with a nice common area; skiing facilities are easily accessible by car; the farm is close to the city, but secluded as it overlooks the city from the other side of the lake. Jan and his family were very nice, helpful and responsive! The Clocktower is suitable for groups or families as the individual rooms don't offer too much privacy, but there's more than enough space overall! Great memories!

A once in a lifetime experience not to be missed! The communication with Jan before, during and after the trip was wonderful. He answered all our questions prior to arrival. Upon arrival, we were given a tour of the Clocktower and property along with an impressive history of the place. Jan also was helpful in recommendations of places to eat and things to do. After we left, we realized that a beloved stuffed animal had been left at the Clocktower and Jan graciously put it in the mail - above and beyond for a host. The Clocktower itself was like a museum. We felt like we were part of history staying there. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms were nice and the kitchen worked perfectly for us. Staying at the Clocktower was a highlight of our trip.

Jan and Johanna are excellent hosts! We had a warm welcome when we arrived and staying in the clocktower is such a unique experience. Especially if you're into history. The location was perfect, a quick drive into Lillehammer and had a wonderful view. The beds were comfortable and the house had everything we needed. Thanks so much!

We had a great stay at the Clocktower over Easter! It is a truly uniqe and special place. Jan will improve the child friendliness of the building which will be a great advantage as there were some "pitfalls" for toddlers. That being said, we had no accidents and it served us well. Jan was very friendly and welcomming and responded to queries immediately. Next time we would stay somewhere with more windows (remember this is an old storehouse so limited windows) as the location and view is spectacular. Thank you Jan and we wish you success as an Airbnb host!
