One of the highlights of our wonderful trip - Trond is a fabulous host, and his jams and juices are divine! The accommodations themselves are lovely. Nothing fancy, but very comfortable and clean, and the other guests and the staff are delightful - getting to know them was a wonderful part of our stay. We loved the balconies right outside our rooms - what a view! - and I spent a happy evening rocking in the hammock, drinking tea, reading, and enjoying the late evening light.
My sisters and I wanted to take advantage of the top-notch bikes that are available to guests, and Trond suggested two unforgettable expeditions, and provided us with a nice map/guide for both of them. He clearly wants everyone to have a great time getting to know his little corner of Norway, and does everything he can to make sure that happens.
Several people mention the limited number of businesses in Solvorn - it's true that your only options for dinner are a small cafe, and the very expensive Walaker Hotel, but I think this is a positive, not a negative!! We ate at the cafe every night - the food was fresh and tasty, and we loved getting to know our charming waitress, and chatting with the locals. You can also buy provisions from Eplet's tiny store - they're very reasonably priced, and we had fun making breakfast in the kitchen, then eating at the table overlooking the beautiful views.
My only TINY quibble was the fact that the shades in the bedrooms didn't block much light. As we were visiting at Midsummer, I had a bit of trouble sleeping when it was still quite light at midnight. But other than that, our stay was absolutely perfect!!!
