Søstrene Storaas (The Storaas Sisters) consists of chef Solveig, adventurer Henriette and actress Else. Contrary to what many expect when they first hear of them, they're not three old sisters who have been running the place their whole lives - they are aged 27, 30 and 32.
In 2014, they took over the hotel from their parents who first opened it back in 1995. But the farm itself dates all the way back to 1751.
With pigs out the back on the farm, the sisters pride themselves on what they believe is Norway's most local traditional rib - fetched from about 100 meters behind the house. They also make their own bacon and salami - right there on the premises.
The three sisters are proud to be active in the actual operation of the hotel, not just on the admin side. Else tells stories for the guests whilst Solveig is in the kitchen cooking their food. Their passion truly shows throughout the hotel.
From beaches to industrial museums
Whether you want to stroll down to the beach, located 200 meters from the entrance, or rent a canoe and paddle around, followed by a small picnic - there are plenty of experiences at the hotel and nearby.
In the yard there are lawns, stilts and games that are popular with children. For the adults, there is the option of trying out beer tasting and listening to the hosts' historical tales from the hotel.
If you fancy a day trip in the car, you can drive to Rjukan, an hour and a half away, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, where you will find Gaustatoppen, the Sun Mirror and Sabotørruten.
If you need a little adrenaline kick, you can also attempt a bungee jump or try randone skiing.
Further along is Notodden, which is also on the World Heritage List, and where the industrial adventure began. Here you will find Lysbuen Industrial Museum, where you can explore the subject in more detail.
At Kongsberg, you can visit the Silver Mines and Norway's largest Baroque church. The sisters believe it's a must-see.
In the winter, you can go to Blefjell and see the wonderful cross-country skiing paths. But the sisters explain that you do not have to be a professional to have a go - so it suits both children and adults, amateurs and professionals, alike.
