    The staff are friendly and helpful, and the cottage is cute and very cozy. I love their restaurant, the lamb fillet was the best I had during my trip.

    Cozy cabin

    We stayed in cottage 8. It had all the basic amenities we needed for our one-night stay. We were able to make our meals in the small kitchenette. Everything was very clean and well-kept, although the refrigerator did smell very strong of garlic sausage (or something like that). The wifi worked well, and the check-in/check-out process was super easy. Overall, we were happy with our stay here.

    Cozy, but it was tough for my husband and I to share the full bed. The windows were great but the curtains weren’t too good at keeping the light out. Overall it was a quaint stay in a pretty area.

    Good for up to theee people in quiet area

    Nice little cottage on a big hill above the town. Clean and comfortable. Nice beds and bedding. Kitchen area with all amenities. Very quiet and nice. Three of us enjoyed it for one night. Nice restaurant nearby on the waterfront with good food.

    Great location to see northern lights

    We love the cottage style concept. Our unit on its own. Everything self contained within the hut. It was warm and toasty even outside was minus 6 degree. Fuss free check in. Location short distance away from town ona hill. Best place to see the northern lights with minimum light pollution from the cottages only. We took pictures of heavy northern lights over our heads.

    There was a lot of problems with this stay. 1. No heater, the owner did came to fix it that same night 2. No hot water, but owner did fix it that same night 3. Horrible wifi, it doesn't work most of the time. 4. Have a really hard time locking and opening the door. My sister couldn't get out and we couldn't get in and it was cold out. 5. The door was stuck.

    Quiet and good place to catch aurora at night. Easy to check in and out. However, cottage has strong food odour, the plates, pans, stoves etc were not properly cleaned (had food residue and stain). Shower curtain has strong sour smelly odour. Floor is clean but overall, cleanliness is an issue.
