Hospitality since 1905, Skogstad Hotel is a historic hotel in the heart of the center of Hemsedal. The hotel has long traditions and culture, with history and the atmosphere in the walls. The hotel has in recent years undergone a major renovation process, and this year's news is that we now have ski-in with the new skislope going from the skicenter.
The story of Skogstad Hotel began in 1905 as a combination of farm, general store, inn and guest house. There were animals like chickens and pigs that put eggs and bacon on the table at the time, and farm operations were underway throughout the year. Then as now, Hemsedal was a stopover between the east and west, and the guest house was open only in summer and in Easter week.
In 1961, the first ski trail in Hemsedal village was made by volunteers. That's when tourism to the village began to rise. The pension began to take in winter visitors, it was built on and Skogstad finally got hotel status in 1964.
The hotel has adapted to the flow of tourists and currently has facilities to satisfy the most. The hotel is today still a family hotel run by the fifth genration. The staff at the hotel has taken care of the homely and informal atmosphere of the transport station time.

The hotel is in the village center, close to restaurants and shopping. You have to take the bus to the ski slopes. The hotel is old and would need some restoration. Some of the rooms are rather bad. The discotheque on Saturdays are very noisy...More
