Our cabins are far out meaning that we can not offer a cleaning service. So our guests are responsible for the final cleaning. All equipment as well as some instruction are found at the cabin. This has worked fine for the last 20 years...

Our guests bring their own sheets /linen, bath towels, kitchen towels. Sometimes we are able to offer a service for this. The cost is 250 kr per person. Please let us know ahead if you are in need of the service and we will see what we can do.

The cabins are simple and individually furnished. You will find a lot of "made in Sweden" things. No luxury in the kitchen but it works fine to cook your own meals.

Arrival and departure days are usually saturday with a minimum lenght of stay of 7 days. But if you book with short notice, other days and shorter stayings can be arranged. So please let us know if you have a request for other then saturdays.

We ask for 1000 kr deposit (for key and final cleaning) that needs to be paid with the rent. After your visit we transfer the deposit to your bank account. Yngslandet deposit is 2000 kr.

If you cancel 6 weeks or earlier before your booked staying the cancelation fee is 25 %. If you cancel between 42 and 30 days before your booked staying the cancelation fee is 50 % If you cancel later than 30 days before your booked staying we keep the entire payment. But we always try to consider you cancellation fees in case you make another booking with us later.

All cabins have mobile reception / service. But no WIFI except Yngslandet where you mostly will find WIFI (please ask for it). There are no roaming costs in Sweden when you use your own devices.

The houses are situated far out on the countryside so we recommend to travel by car. It is 5 - 20 km to the next bus stop. Train stations are found in Karlstad, Kristinehamn and Nykroppa. There is no bike rental in Filipstad but you can use a Taxi.

In Sweden you do not need a fishing-license so everyone is free to try out the fishing in the lakes. But depending on what water you fish you will need a fishing card = fiskekort. This can be bought online on www.ifiske.se or at gasstations and touristoffices. Usually between 100 kr and 300 kr per week, no charge for children younger than 15.

Electricity costs are included in the price during the period 29/4-16/9. Other weeks we ask for a fixed electricity cost per week.
