“Nice cabin in a spectacular location, but beware the extras”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

My wife, baby and I stayed in one of these house-sized cabins for 4 nights in August whilst visiting the Rjukan area. The cabin was quite spacious and comfortable, with a pretty well equiped kitchen. The place was spotlessly clean. Some nice touches: the bathroom had a little sauna attached, and there was a stove where you could have a log fire.

The cabin is in (what I asssume is) a skiing area: there's a lot of similar buildings. You don't really get the sense of being alone in the hills, but on the flip side it's not over developed, and it's nice to be in the mountains.

You're expected to leave the place spotless (or pay 800nok/£80 for someone else to clean it); when you move in you're given a scary list of things you're supposed to do prior to moving out. Having said that, the woman I dealt with was lovely and didn't give us a hard time
The drive from the town is up a steep switchback. It's quite spectacular, but it does take 15 to 20 minutes to get to or from Rjukan.

Room Tip: Ring up and ask what kind of view you'll have; our cabin looked onto the car park, which wasn...
