Thank you for very nice words. I am always happy when my guests have had a good time here. What can be better than having a feeling of been in Paradise when leaving.
Just a comment regarding being 8 persons , and renting the old part too.
It does not have to be crowded because then you double your floor area. You get not only an extra bedroom with 2 beds 90x200 cm, but most important is the room "Gamle-stova", an extra living room with a totally different atmosphere compared to the modern room.
There is something with old timber houses that is difficult to put words on. But sitting in the old room is very relaxing whatever you do; reading, talking with each other, playing cards or other games,puzzles etc .
There is a sofa for 3, a daybed and 4 armchairs you sink into and does not want to get up from. So alone the old living room can be filled with 8 persons.
The several hundred years and solid timber walls gives you a feeling of being extra well protected against all kinds of weather.
Acoustic is very good inside this room, if you like to play, sing or compose music.
And in the modern part the dining table can easily be expanded to 8 person.
If someone is staying for a longer time I would recommend them to ask if they can rent the whole house.
