The space

Sure there are plenty "stugas" in Sweden you can stay in. They are great, but if you like just a little more comfort, stay in our house. There are not many places you can stay at with friends and familie and have your own privet area. The gym, sauna, boat and in and outdoor fireplace are big fun, but best of all hang out with kids, friends and familie. And if you're (temporary) fed up with them? You can relax in your own apartment.

Guest access

We also have 2 bikes you can use for free.
If you want wifi and use of the boat. We ask 200 euro deposit.

Interaction with guests

We are not in the house ourselves during your stay. We have a caretaker who lives next to the house. You can contact us at any time by phone or email.

The neighbourhood

We love the space, the nature and the water.

Getting around

Don't relay on public transport where we are. Sure there is a buss. But we are in a rural area so a car of moterbike is essential.

Other things to note

Make sure you don't lock yourself out of your apartment, by closing the door with the key inside... If your group allows it, just leave the key outside and you're always able to enter!

House Rules
No smoking
Check in is anytime after 4PM
Check out by 10AM

It is a very quiet area with very friendly neighbours. Make sure you don't disturb them when you are out.

Smoking inside the house is not allowed.

It is very very important that you don't touch the heating system. It is a sensitive system because we use thermal heating. We can check and log on from a distance. So if you're cold: Contact us!

One other important thing. Don't use dishwasher and sauna together. This can cause a major damage to our electrical and heating system. Please make sure every guest knows of this!

For this reason it is also not allowed to plug in big electricity consumers (e.g. charging electric cars). If you want to use much electricity, please contact us so we can check things for you.

We were 14 people from my family staying here for three nights. The place was really nice and we had a great time. The apartments where quiet and comfortable. The surroundings and scenery was fantastic and so was the neighbors. We would have appreciated more (was there any?) fire detectors and locks on the windows upstairs (fall hazards). Jaap Jan was very helpful and nice to us. We can highly reccommende this place and will probably return to this place in the future.

This was a very Nice and big house in a lovely and quiet place. We were 5 families but with 5 appartments and a big gym it didnt feel crowded at all. The house was very good equiped with kitchen accesories, gym equipment and furnitures. The outside areas was very big with lost of place for the kids to play and a Nice fireplace. We all had a great stay and highly recomend this place for others. The host was excellent and responded quickly and very informative about our inquiries. He was a very thoughtful host.

Huset var stort och bekvämt! Smidigt att anlända och "checka ut". Superbra med gymnastiksalen som användes flitigt av alla barn. Vi var fem familjer som bodde i huset och det flöt på smidigt med boendet i de olika lägenheterna (som var väldigt luftiga och trevliga med högt i tak; förutom lägenheten på bottenplan som var mindre men mysigare). Det fanns också flera spjälsängar, babygym och barnstolar, vilket kom väl till pass då vi hade småbarn med oss. Bra med tvättmaskin (som vi dock inte kunde köra samtidigt som bastun). Dock uppstod problem då vi använde ugnen och bastun samtidigt; men problemen löstes snabbt och smidigt med hjälp av konstlat med ägaren och en granne. Det var lite kallare i de två sovrum som låg ovanpå gympasalen och när barnen lekte högljutt i den lät det ganska högt i just de två rummen; så ett tips är att tänka på vem som kan sova där. Vi hade dubbla täcken och sov med djupt sovande bäbisar i båda dessa rum så det funkade bra. Jättefina omgivningar - vi promenerade bland annat till Rämens herrgård, den otroligt fint belägna kyrkan samt en övergiven järnväg, och alldeles intill huset låg en fin sjö där man kunde åka långfärdsskridskor. Även enkelt att åka till Säfsen för slalom, Filipstad för bad och Lesjöfors för handling samt ett skogsäventyr på Trollstigen (perfekt för de små barnen). En toppenvecka helt enkelt!

I prefer to wright in Norwegian and hope that is okey. Jaap Jan er en perfekt vert, rask til å svare på alle henvendelser. "Skolen" ligger i en liten koselig bygd, men kanskje litt for øde for vår del. Leilighetene var store og fine og deilig å trekke seg litt tilbake til når vi var så mange som 11 personer i huset. Gymsalen er perfekt både for barn og voksne og leke i. Hovedkjøkkenet er gammelt og slitt, noen liker det slik, men for oss ble det litt ukomfortabelt. Rengjøringen før vi kom var ikke helt topp.

Response from Jaap Jan:
Thanks for your feedback and stay at our place. We're sorry to hear about the cleaning, there are usually no complaints. If we heard this at the beginning of your stay, we could have aranged an extra 'finishing touch'. The kitchen is the original schools kitchen, which we would find difficult to replace :-). It's fully furnished though with up-to-date equipment and a big modern stove.

Het huis in Rämen is een grote aanrader, je voelt je een met de mooie natuur die weids om je uitstrekt. Het is ver van de bewoonde wereld maar als je daarvan houdt zul je net zo verliefd worden als ik ben geworden. Het huis is zo groot en netjes dat je er makkelijk met 20 mensen nog steeds prive kunt verblijven. Fijne keuken en goede andere voorzieningen.
