Take care of the place like it is their own home. Take out the garbage. Leave the laundry in the bathroom: towels and the used bedclothing. And it would be deeply appreciated if the guests start the washingmachine; either the towels( 90* C) or bedclothing (60* C) before checking out. We will hang it to dry. Thank you for the help.
If you are more than 4 guests we charge 100kr extra per person per night. You pay this at arrival.
Otherwise we would like you to enjoy the quiet time at the countryside.
PS: From our experience we don't lay the beds, the guests (couples/friends/children/family) can choose beds and arrange their own sleeping at arrival.

This was our second time at Trond's and Bente's cabin, and we enjoyed it a lot again. The place had all the amenities we needed and it was well equipped to accommodate our group of 4-6 friends. We had some minor issues with the electricity (fuses blowing etc.), but Trond or Bente responded always within minutes and the problems got fixed in no time. The cabin is a perfect place for doing skitouring in Lakselvdal area, and we are already making plans for our next trip :)

We are a family of 4 and the cabin had all the ameneties we could have wished for. It had a single bedroom just off the reception area plus, on the first floor, a large sleeping area with a separate double bedroom at the rear. There is a wireless internet extender which worked perfectly well and a satellite TV which provided a HDMI port for streaming films off a laptop - very useful when the weather is too bad to leave the cabin ! There is underfloor heating throughout the lower level which we had to switch off because it became too warm. The log burning stove is also very efficient. The location is perfect for hiking, skiing and sledging - there are 3 sledges Bente kindly let us use. There is a dog Sledding company a short walk away of which we highly recommend ! We had a great time in and around the cabin, it's very easy to find and in a perfect location.

We spent 7 wonderful days in Bente and Trond's cabin. The late arrival and very early departure weren't a problem... They live close by and responded quickly when needed! We felt very comfortable from the moment we stepped into the cabin. Everything necessary was provided. And it was really cozy and well heated! The kids had fun in the snow... And the sleds provided were cool. We adults mainly came for watching the northern lights. And first part of the week still was very cloudy and snowy so we had to drive a bit to be able to watch them. But as the weather got really chilly and the sky clear, we saw fantastic aurora shows close to the cabin or even at the cabin. It was really great... Tromsø is a nice city to visit too. Especially if you look down on it from a hill it's wonderful. We also visited the Polar Park - even though a few animals weren't available and the bears asleep, it still was worth it. While driving around in the area we got very curious about how the area would be in summer! So maybe we will come back one day. We can sure recommend staying at Trond's cabin. Don't hesitate, it's definitely worth it! Thanks a lot for letting us being your guests!

Trond was quick to respond via and was prompt in providing the assistance we needed. His wife came to drop by within a few minutes of texting for assistance to use the oven and even brought us firewood thinking we might be too cold and needed to start the fireplace. Trond gave us all the directions and recommendations we asked for and his directions were comprehensive and recommendations were valuable to us! The log cabin was one of the best accommodation secluded from the bustling city life where you get to enjoy the scenic view and the privacy. Very clean, well equipped with adequate space.

An amazingly cosy cabin out of Tromsø. Bente and Trond are great hosts, friendly, attentive and very approachable. The cabin has everything you need for your stay. Surrounded by the mountains, the Northern Lights can be seen as soon as one steps outside. Walk onto the field on a clear sky night, and wait for the magic to happen. Even without the Northern Lights, the sky filled with million of stars will mesmerized you. Supermarket is not too far away, and when staying at this cabin, a must try is the huskies sledging with the Northern Light Dog Adventure! In a nutshell, this cabin is wonderful. I will surely return!
