This beautiful lakeside cottage offers the perfect starting point for excellent hiking in unspoiled nature, or a quiet retreat in historical surroundings.
The cottage is close to Tiveden national park as well as cozy summer town Karlsborg. The crystal clear lake right outside offers both amazing views as well as wildlife spotting, fishing or why not a morning swim from the private dock. The cottage is connected to the main house, but has its own entrance, kitchen and bathroom.

The space
The cottage, built in early 1900's as an attachment to the main house built in 1810 was formerly the recidence of the miller, at the nearby mill. The mill is still there today, although its no longer in operation. The whole area including the property is listed as a national heritage site.
The cottage has recently been fully restored with great care and a lot of effort has been made to keep the original features and ambience. The cottage is right by the lake and offers beautiful views overlooking the water with birdlife, beavers and other wildlife. The main room in the cottage offers a queen size bed (possible to separate to two singles), a desk, wardrobe space and antique furniture.
Kitchen has been restored with the original low countertops, but also more mordern amenities such as fridge/freezer, microwave oven, coffee machine and so on.
Bathroom is modern with a shower.
Everything you need for a comfortable vacation.
On the property we have a small farm with friendly goats, Shetland ponies, a couple of minature pigs, chickens (fresh breakfast eggs included!), ducks, cats and dogs.

I'm a city guy, who decided to leave the buzz and stress of the city to buy a large farmhouse in the countryside as an investment in quality of life. Never looked back! Share this little paradise with horses, a couple of miniature pigs, goats, ducks, chickens, cats and dogs. My job is as a regional manager for a large DIY store chain but my passion is antiques, music, nature, my animals, to travel and meet new interesting cultures and people.
