Balsnes Gard
Ranked #1 of 2 Nordfjordeid B&B and Inns
Reviewed 14 January 2013

This is the real version of Norway in a nut shell. Balsnes gard gives you true Norwegian life. And an experience for lifetime. First of all you are hosted by a family that not only gives you superb service. It's delivered with love and real interest in their guests. They say the idea of transforming the old family farm house into a four-room hotel came on an around-the-world-trip some years ago. When they realized they couldn't visit the world on a full time basis, they came up with the solution of inviting the world to their home.
Still - even if you're not interested in interesting people, Balsnes gard is the place to go. There, not only the humans has personality. The hotel itself has an impressive creative touch a boutique hotel worthy. And the food. Mmmmm! Norwegian traditional food in a totally other league than the standard smoked salmon buffet you get at any hotel. And the beds. Zzzz! This is the perfect spot to relax in quiet environment. To read a book. Or to write a book.
And outside is the fjord. The Northwest coast is the best part of Norway, with its mountains, deep valleys, glaciers, fjords. You can look at the nature, or try compete with it - surfing, rafting, skiing (even in summertime). The only drawback with Balsnes is that it's not next door neighbor to any of these attractions. On the other hand, it's right in the middle, with Stryn, Briksdal glacier, Stad surfing and all the other fun within 30-60 min range.
