Family accomodation on island in river Glomma


Family accommodation in a traditional loggers cabin on an island in the Glomma river.

Looking for accommodation for the whole family or on a trip with a group of friends?
Live 'the simple life' at Bangdalsbruket, like the old loggers, without electricity, water or heating. Museum accommodation with an idyllic location on Prestøya, midway between Anno Norsk skogmuseum and Anno Glomdalsmuseet in Elverum.

Service facilities (water, shower and wc) can be found 150 meters from the cabin.
Accommodation in Lensmannskoia is on self-catering basis. Pillows and down are in the bunk, bed linen you have to provide your self. On departure, you clean the cabin, do the dishes and remove the rubbish. Upon departure, the cabin must appear in the same standard you found it in.
The key to the cabin is in the key box by the door. You get a code after booking the cabin and the stay is paid for. In the cabin there are disposable plates, cups and cutlery. There is access to a barbecue facility at Klokkerfossen (waterfall) and there is a kettle at the sanitary facility.
​NB! There is no electricity in the cabin and the fireplace cannot be used. There is no heater available.

Accommodation in Lensmanskoia provides easy access to cultural and nature experiences at the Norwegian Forest Museum and the Glomdalsmuseum, the third largest outdoor museum in Norway. Museum tickets to both museums are included. Elverum is a superb starting point for hundreds of kilometers of bike trails, bushcrafting courses on Prestøya or a guidet tour through Finnskogen forest. Experiences can include moose & beaver safaris, wilderness or aquavit tasting or paddling trips in the Kynna River. Walk one of the refugee routes or follow the King's footsteps from 1940 at Elverum. 

Wine and dine? It is super cozy to grill sausages in the fireplace. There are barbecue skewers in the cabin. Something å little more fancy? Try restaurant Forstmann at the forest museum og visit one of Elverum's restaurants in the city centre just a short walk away along the river.
