Have a look at this idyllic farmhouse in the countryside of southern Norway. The cozy abode is actually used as a self-catering vacation rental.

Of course at this time of year, it looks more like this:

The farmhouse is rentable year-round but is most popular in the summer season because it is only 100 meters from a lake with free trout fishing. Apparently trout fishing is BIG in Norway!

The property also includes a barn, a small museum, a “smithy” and a bee house.

Have a look inside the house….

It has been updated and remodeled, but with an eye toward keeping the quaint old-country feel.

Cream colored plank walls, white-painted ceilings, and pine flooring make for a soothing combination.

Below is a close-up of the dainty chandelier and vintage tablecloth:

Love the combination of new and old: antique spinning wheel and stylish Terrazzo fireplace!

The farmhouse can accommodate families and the proprietors even welcome young children.
