Peaceful cabin on a sun-rich water-side plot to Borrevannet lake (4km long, 1km wide), with full facilities, available to rent. Excellent pike and perch fishing, bird watching, walking.
On the east side of the lake, so you have sun from 1100hrs to sunset (subject to time of year!)
Sleeps up to 10 people. Each of the two bedrooms has two sets of bunkbeds (2x2) and there is a sofa bed in the lounge which can either be a single or a double. Bathroom with shower, washing machine and tumble dryer.
Large west facing terrace (decking patio) with beautiful view over the widest part of the lake. Outside furniture include chairs and tables and a chimnea (log fire which doubles up as a small BBQ), and another larger BBQ grill. Also a small south facing terrace for the early morning sun.
TV (Viasat basic package).
Rental includes the use of a small row boat - which is moored up on the plot.
Grass lawn on two plateaus and the water line `beach´.
Parking for several cars right by the cabin.
7 minutes drive from Borre Golf course (www.borregb.no) whilst the tee-off for Hole 8 is approximately 30meters through the woodland.
Winter cross country ski runs are made by the local ski association. These link right into the `night time lit ski routes´ - also only 10 walk/ski minutes away.
Superb fishing - pike, perch and other fish. The biggest pike recorded so far to date weighed in at 18kg. Fishing cards purchasable for day or season (bought on site by sms).
Great walking routes too straight from the hut. Look at the www.visithorten.com tourist website for scenic routes in the area.
Swimming and other water activities possible - have one windsurfing board and full rig (various sail sizes) also available at additional cost.
