“Hidden pearl”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Expected B&B but got something more. Clean and tidy. Astonishing breakfast. Authentic and nice service. Nigel and Linnea gave a warm and impeccable service. We borrowed their canoe and paddled to an island in the Österdalälven. Before leaving we had their dinner which would have place in Guide Michelin according to us. We will definately be back. / Henrik, Viktoria wth twinboys of 5 yrs.

We were a group of 10 persons on a study trip who stayed at Knappgården one night. Knappgården has an unformal atmosphere, and is very relaxing. If the hosts are to be described by one word, it is dedication. The food is extraordinary and home made, and the hosts are very friendly. The only drawbacks are that the breakfast doesn't last 4-5 hours, and that the next place you are staying are bound to be a downturn.

Fantastic hosts - thank you Nigel and Linnea! Easygoing, kind and helpful but they are no ordinary mom & pop act and they certainly deserve their TripAdvisor Award. Super attentive to their customer needs (small things like changing a salad ingredient), great with our boys and even walking our dog. Linnea spent lots of time explaining the area, suggesting places to go, organising activities for us (and providing snow-shoes and sledges). We were completely at home and even extended our stay. Mealtimes were a big highlight - great variety of local produce (or order something special in advance and Linnea will find it for you), lots of homemade goodies (herring, pickle, preserves etc), fantastic dried meats and sausages, a remarkable Sami bear and moose meatball recipe (with a Nigel twist) and sumptuous homemade ice-creams and desserts...I could go on and on! We had a wonderful introduction to the area during the last gasps of winter and the start of the spring melt and we will for sure return for more of Linnea and Nigel's hospitality and another seasonal experience!

Linnea and Nigel gave us a two days of true hospitality ! We found this hotel thanks to tripadvisor and were not deceived. We had the best food and wine in Sweden with a variety of local products such as pike, bear, home made chutney and pickles combined with the best of 'foreign' food such a very good couscous and a semifreddo. The choices of wine and the stories of Linnea made this one of,our best gastronomic experiences. That 's why we took the three course menus two evenings in a row. A day of skiing in Idre and a dog sledge by Anne Laure a friend of Linea in the neighbourhood made this a perfect holiday.
The rooms and beds are impeccable.

We wanted to visit Dalarna and chose Knappgarden on basis of reviews here, and are very glad we did. Nigel and Linnea were extremely helpful and friendly, and fantastic with our young boys. We had the large family room which was perfect, and we were kindly lent sledges for the kids. The standard of food was outstanding, with the best breakfast we've had anywhere in Sweden since moving here a year ago- Nigel's Bear and Reindeer burger was just quality, as was the food in general.

The location is perfect for all sorts of activities, we easily drove to Idre fjall, the local national park with Sweden's highest waterfall, Norway, and just enjoying the scenery. We'll definately be coming back here!

I previously said that I would like to revisit Knappgarden....and boy am I glad I did. I spent Christmas with family at Knappgarden and again was treated to fabulous hospitality from Nigel and Linnea....the perfect hosts. Whereas in the Summer Knappgarden is beautiful, in the Winter it comes in to its own with a stunning winter landscape.....white as far as the eye can see....truly breathtaking.

When not enjoying mouth-watering food...a truly eclectic mix (and an amazing smorgasbord on Christmas Eve) we were kept busy at the nearby Fjätervålen ski slopes (my first time & I still have the bruises to prove it...but what a laugh). It's also a great resort to visit and relax in the cafe - which looks out on to the slopes.

Even though the temperature was as low as -20˚ outside, the rooms were always warm and very comfortable. The restaurant also has an open fire providing a perfect spot to sit and relax.

I can't rate Knappgarden more highly.....it's a wonderful place to visit and relax (helped by the sauna, hot tub and games room!) and if you are in this part of Sweden, then look no further! I'll be back again!

Room Tip: All the rooms are well equipped......there is no need to choose a specific room as they are all of e...
