We visited Mellby Ör Inn for a fall getaway in October 2013. The owners/innkeepers have done a wonderful job of renovating what used to be old barns into this gorgeous guesthouse! The rooms are beautiful, comfortable, modern and very clean. Though the guest rooms have all the amenities of a 5 star hotel, they still keep the charm of the old barns in the outer walls and ceiling beams, which were preserved from the original structure, built in 1860.
As a family of four we stayed in two rooms, adjoined by a hallway. We had access to a full kitchen and sitting room area. It felt spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed! There is wireless Internet access and TV/DVDs in every room, which was great. Our young children loved the owners’ dog (super friendly!) and enjoyed feeding the rabbits.
The ocean is a comfortable walk from the inn and a nature lover’s paradise. This part of the island is known for its bird watching. A short drive away is the southern tip of Öland and the Swedish Kings hunting grounds, which is beautiful to drive through and has, as you could imagine, plenty of wildlife!
The owners have gone above and beyond in making this place a wonderful, relaxing quiet vacation destination. They have put a lot of effort into making it something special. The mosaics in the bathrooms have been handcrafted by the owner and really personalize the otherwise clean Scandinavian bathroom designs. The attention to detail is really noticeable overall, not only in the choice of art work on the walls, mosaics and décor, but in the original building and installation such as light switches, sinks, tile, grout etc. We were impressed with how new and clean everything looked and felt.
Though Öland is typically a summer vacation destination, we really enjoyed visiting in the fall when the island is a bit more quiet with less traffic. The owners also run a pub on the property, which is open Fridays during late fall, winter and early spring. We plan to come back for a weekend in the winter when we can enjoy pub night with live music right on the property!
Thank you for a great stay!
