This cabin with view of the fjord, is located only 10 min by car from the center of Drøbak (45 mins from Oslo).
Outside there's a spacious deck and a large uncultivated property. There's also a small porch outside the panoramic windows. The inside features a living area with panoramic windows (facing south towards the fjord), a large couch, a fireplace and a small sitting-group by the window. The kitchen is small but functional with hot/cold water, refrigerator and a gas stove. Two of the bedrooms have bunk-beds (2 per room) and the master bedroom features a queen-size bed. Just outside the living-room (accessible from the porch) there is a small washroom with a sink, but no WC. There is an outhouse (latrine) on the property for the private matters :) The toilet is a dry toilet (not a wc). You find this in a little house right behind the cabin (see photos). The shower is an outside shower behind the cabin with hot/cold water (see photos). It's wonderful to take a hot shower outside in the fresh air!
A secluded beach (with excellent fishing oportunities) is just a quick stroll from the cabin. There is also a large recreational area by the seafront in the centre of historical Drøbak.
This is a quiet cabin neigborhood in a lovely coastal forest area. It is not uncommon to see/hear Roe (deer), Mink and other forest animals, so don't get startled if you hear some rustling in the woods nighttime. :) There is no TV, internet, etc but the fireplace and the sunset is plenty entertaining on summer nights. There is a BBQ on the porch.
Drøbak is a typical cozy Norwegian coastal village with lushious gardens, small white houses and cozy alleys. It's not a bad place to spend an evening with a bucket of freshly boiled shrimps, a glass (or two) of white wine and a view of the sunset.
There's even a bar or two ;)
Hello, I`m Hilde! I live in a small community named Ärvika together with my husband, Svend-Inge. We are norwegian citizens, who moved to Sweden eight years ago. We enjoy travelling and meeting people from all around the world. Every summer we invite canoe campers to an informal summer cafè in our garden. Some of them even spend the night in their own tent here or down by the lake. This area is perfect for people like us who enjoy hiking in quiet landscape, enjoying silence, forest, lakes, flowers, fishing and a generous wildlife.
Our cabin, which is listed here at this site, has much of the same surroundings. The biggest difference is that this cabin is located near to Oslo fjord (salt water).
We wish you a warm welcome to our place in Arvika Sweden! :)
