The Ranger´s cottage in Målilla Älgpark is a unique accomodation in the middle of a moose park. As guests in our houses you have free access to the park all hours of the day to take a walk, play on the playground or get more acquainted with the moose, deer, goats, rabbits and chickens. The vicinity also offers fantastic lakes, endless forests and popular sights such as Astrid Lindgrens World.

Please read my reviews as a host to our other houses on the farm.

Welcome to Målilla Älgpark!

The space
The Ranger´s Cottage is a cosy house in the moose park Målilla Älgpark. A classic red house with white trimmings that was previously inhabited by the farms ranger. The house is now used as a holiday home all year round.

The house in on the moose parks property and day visitors will pass by during opening hours. There is a private garden on the front and around the property. Garden furniture and a grill is on the side and behind the house. You can park your car by the house.

When the park is closed you will share the area with other guests in our other two houses. They are situated about 500 meters from this house, on the other side of the farm.

The nearest place to go swimming is in the river that runs past the farm. To get to a lake suitable for swimming you need a car, it´s between 5-10km. There are several different lakes to choose from. If you would like to go fishing the river is available, a fishing card is required in the lakes.

The Ranger´s Cottage is decorated in a cosy and practical Swedish country style. The bedroom on the first floor is next to the living room, instead of a door there is a curtain in the doorframe. This bedroom is suitable for children and youths. The sofa beds can be pulled out for two people each or be used as sofas in an extra living room. One of the sofa beds is quite comfortable and even adults can sleep well in it. The other sofa bed is full size but children or youths sleep best in it.

On the second floor there are two bedrooms with double beds. There is also space for an extra bed for younger children or a travel baby cot.

The tv shows a couple of Swedish chanels and there is a blu-ray player and some movies. You are welcome to bring your own movies to watch. There are also some books and board games in the house.

A portable wi-fi is available. The reception is not the best out here in the woods but ordinary surf works fine.

There is a toilet and a sink on the upper floor and another toilet with a sink on the ground floor. The shower is built in under the stairs. There is also an old but fully functioning washing mashine. There will be soap and toilet paper in the house on arrival to get you started.

The kitchen has everything you need. The appliances are old but fully functioning and clean. (There is no dish washer.)
All the equipment you need to cook and eat is in place. There is also some commodities such as spices, flour, sugar, ketchup, detergent, soap, kitchen towels etc. Feel free to use what you find in the cupboards and you are welcome to leave fresh and clean food that you dont want to take with you when you leave.

The wood burner is in the kitchen and you are welcome to use it if you follow our instructions. (The tiled stove in the living room can not be used.) There is normally no need for extra heating durning summer but the wood burner can be used during cold and rainy days. During the winter the heat pump is on and if it´s really cold the wood burner must be used continuously.

The Ranger´s Cottage is available as a holiday house all year. During low season: fall/winter/spring you will basically be alone in the park and during winter you can be lucky and experience snow.

Where you’ll be

Målilla, Sweden

There is a lot to see and do in the area around Målilla Älgpark. It is only a 40 minute drive to Astrid Lindgrens World in Vimmerby as well as several other sights. For example Kleva Gruva (mine), Smalspåret (narrow-gauge railway), Astrid Lindgrens Näs (museum), Sweden Zipline, Vimmerby Adventure and many others.

And don´t forget the endless forests, lakes and nature experiences that you create yourself. You can for example rent canoes or mountain bikes from EM Venture and experience Småland for real.

The nearest supermarket is in Målilla.

During your stay

We are a family with four children and we live in the mansion by the entry to the moose park. Our dog Hektor is also a beloved family member. He roams free on the farm when the moose park is closed. Hektor is a big but very friendly and child friendly dog. Don´t be surprised if he will be the first one to greet you when you arrive.

We are always available for questions about the accomodation, the area or the moose and our other animals. Don´t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
