For the holidaymaker, the dedicated sports fisherman, the bird watcher, and for people with an interest in history! Charming, newly renovated cottage located approximately fifty meters off the bank of Helige (Holy) -river and the Husebymaden-wetland. The perfect place for canoeing, bathing, fishing, bird watching or just enjoying the tranquil surroundings.


The space

The cottage is the only housing in the area directly at the river side, except for the Huseby "castle"/mansion. The cottage is recently renowated, and has several conveniences such as a fireplace, a fridge with a small freezer compartment, a stove, a shower and a incineration toilet.

The cottage consists of one big living room with a sofa-bed (two beds), one sleeping-loft with two mattresses, a kitchen, a bathroom with a shower, one bed room with a double bed, and a glassed-in porch/veranda, also with a double bed. Thus, the cottage has the capacity to house up to eight people, even if a slightly smaller company is recommended, to avoid feeling too crowded. The cottage is perfect for a family, or a party of four to five people. Bedlinen and towels are not included. However, the host can provide bedlinen and towels, but only at request and at an extra fee (150 sek per set).

Guest access

The entire cottage and the plot upon which it stands is at the disposal of the guests. Boat ( including 4 HP motor, and fishing rod-holders) may be rented at an extra fee: 350 SEK a day or 1000 SEK a week (5 l petrol included). ONE CANOE IS INCLUDED FOR FREE WHEN YOU BOOK THE COTTAGE. If you need one more, the fee is 100 SEK a day or 350 SEK a week.
There is also a raft from which you can swim, and to sunbathe upon.
The cottage is equipped with a fireplace. Guests also have access to a coal grill. Furthermore, there is an open-air fireplace with view towards the river.
The host provide one full wooden crate of firewood for free.

Interaction with guests

We live at the farmstead, located 350 m from the cottage, and we will gladly offer you tips and guidance, if you so wish. Washing machine may be lent up in our house, if need be.

Most welcome to our little cottage :) Here are some rules we need you to agree on before booking:

Guests are responsible to clean up the cottage after their stay (leave it in the same condition as it was at arrival). A cleaning list is displayed in the cottage.
All garbage need to be put and sorted (metal, glass, other) in the trash-bins outside the cottage. If the cottage is found uncleaned (not following the cleaning checklist), the host will claim the whole deposit 1000sek.

No pets are allowed. No smoking allowed inside the cottage. No littering in the nature or river. Take off your shoes when entering the cottage please.

A canoe, a private pier from which you can dive in the river, a fantastic tree house with view on the nature reserve, a swing in an oak tree.... A truely fantastic place to enjoy the true nature of Smaland. A small but cosy cottage with everything you need. We had a great time!

Johannes and his wife are very friendly people, who help you with everything you need. The cottage is for four adults and two little kids small but works. It is very cozy and full equiped. We had a great time with fishing and biking and hope to come back soon.

Sometimes 5 Stars are not enough. We stayed for one week and loved this cottage every single day so much. It has a exquisit location with the lake landscape, has an lovingly warm atmosphere and ist well equipped. We loved the new wood-fired oven. The location of this cottage is perfect. On the other hand there is no need to doing without all the practial things of life. 20 min by car and you reach the city Växjö where you can get everything you need for your stay. Johannes and his family are very, very beautiful hosts. Very good communication, beautiful hints and well organized. Big thanks. Great Job.

It was truly fantastic week at Johannes cottage! Place is like from dreams: piecefull, quiet, full of fish, birds and green. Johannes and Elli (hosts) are super kind and very positve people. We came in 4 men to spend a week fishing, relaxing and leaving rest of the world behind.. and we succeed in 150%. We got plenty of big pikes:-) Next time I am going to bring my wife and daughters because this place is also very friendly for families. It is pure 5 stars destination. Highly reccomended for everyone!!!

We stayed there for five days at Easter. The house is well equipped and the nature is amazing. We used the canoes for a trip on the river. Johannes is a very nice host and he gave us good tips for restaurants and sightseeing. One night we made a fire outside. Our boys loved the swing on the tree. So if you want to be in the nature, it's a very good place.
