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.
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.
