In the Middle Ages the hotel served as a ‘halfway house’ for travellers heading into the mountains. The term ‘halfway house’ means literally halfway into your journey, and travellers would have stayed only one night. During the Russian Revolution, many Russians who fled their homeland stayed here until the end of the war. The hotel then became a summer retreat for people wanting fresh air and water and the opportunity to enjoy exercise in the open air.
Guests are offered a range of accommodation: staying in the main house, which dates to 1870; the loft, which dates to 1349 during the Black Plague in Norway; or in the other buildings, which are 700 years old. Very tasteful and sympathetic renovation has been carried out over the last 25 years, with the resulting accommodation a pleasant journey back in time through the history of the valley.
