Nes Gard

Reviewed 18 September 2012

We arrived at the lovely and quaint Nes Gard after a many hours drive and found a charming farmstead, kind and attentive staff, and quiet surroundings to explore. Our family of four stayed for nearly a week, venturing off each morning with a picnic packed during breakfast, and a thermos of hot chocolate. We hiked all day every day in the rain, fog, mist and sun, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was spotlessly clean, simple yet comfortable. If we returned, which we already are dreaming of, we'd have two rooms (#11 and #12) because a bit tight for a family of four in one room. Also make sure to have a room with a private bath!
The knowledge of the owner of the area and trails is thorough, extremely trustworthy, and detailed. Food is delicious! Do take advantage of the chance to jump off their dock into the bracing glacial water of the fjord!

Room Tip: Ask for a room in one of the outbuildings as they afford a bit more privacy. Also a private bath is...

Outstanding service, assistance with area plans. Asbjorn is quick to email and answer any questions. Very amiable and knowledgable. The dinners are reasonably priced and outstanding--far better than anything else in the area. Breakfast is a full Norwegian buffet.

This is a great location for many day trips in the most scenic fjord area. We so enjoyed looking at the waterfall directly across the fjord. We were there for 8 nights. Due to our late booking, we spent the first few nights at the Lusterfjordhytter nearby, very nice, and came to Nes Gard for breakfast and dinner. Then we moved into the main building.
My relatives live in the Valdres area nearby--Asbjorn knows my cousin Bjorn. This was a great home base and the most scenic choice off the Sognefjord . We enjoyed the variety of accommodations available, especially having our own sitting area and nice private bathrooms. They are busy building. We were two couples--cannot possibly recommend it any higher.

Room Tip: Email Asbjorn about the options and details. Look at the website

We recently stayed in one of the cottages at this Nes Gard hotel/bed and breakfast. The host and hostess are delightful and very helpful in arranging local hiking trips. They serve great breakfasts and dinners. You can pack a lunch too for your daily adventures. The view overlooking the fjord alone would make this hotel a good choice, but the host and hostess really make the hotel special. Highly recommended.

Spent 3 nights (2 full days) here & wished we'd had several more. The place itself is beautifully situated on a fjord with unusual green water, a view of a large waterfall, and tinkling bells from local sheep. If it hadn't been cool or rainy, we'd have loved to sit out on the lawn with comfortable outdoor furniture. There's a view of an old, illuminated church as well as the fjord.

The owner gave us patient & helpful guidance in choosing local hikes to our specs. (He seemed able to respond to diverse needs: We saw him outfitting one couple with hiking boots as well as dropping them off at their hiking destination. Other guests were experienced mountain climbers.) We chose 2 hikes of 3-4 hours roundtrip within 20 minutes of Nes Gard, and were awestruck by the beauty. One day was stunning sunshine, the second was a foggy day that produced unusual scenes of great beauty.

In terms of meals: 1/2 board with dinner at Nes Gard is an incredibly good deal in an otherwise outrageously expensive country, and the dinners are simply prepared but hearty & tasty. We also dined at a more upscale local restaurant recommended by our host, and were favorably impressed. Not just the hosts but the waitstaff at Nes Gard are gentle and attentive without being invasive.

About our rooms: we had 211, which was small but had fantastic views, as did our traveling companion in 210. Because we had to change the dates of our stay by one day, we were not able to get the room that we had intended, and ended up in a more affordable but small attic room with extremely low eaves. (btw, the shower was great!) we recommend a room downstairs (#10?) (our original choice), with french doors to a small deck. The main house, dating to 1850, is lovely, but could be noisy -- we were in a separate building, which was fabulously quiet. Also available were two living rooms with terrific views, a nice fireplace, and elegant picture books related to norway and the fjords.

All in all, a place that grew on us as we enjoyed good hospitality and beauty.

Two bedrooms had very old furniture and a very soft bed. No TV or wifi although you can go to the B&B to log in.
