Olestølen is the heart of our family’s history. As children we were there every summer from when we were small, generations ago, looking after the livestock on the farm. Being on the mountain farm was our summer vacation. We would stay here from about 10th July until the end of August.

As children, we spent the days doing chores in the barn like milking the cows and tidying-up. We would let out the cows to pasture in the morning and round them up in the evening. In addition, there was time for a lot of play, swimming, mountain walks and catching small fish in the creek.

Stølen was an active dairy farm until 2005. Nowadays, we rent out the farm houses for accommodation and as a hiking destination on our horseback riding trips in the summer.

 

Description

Where is Olestølen?

Olestølen is in the “heart of Norway“. Located in the middle of south Norway. Just between Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim. Close to Jotunheimen National Park there is the well-known ski destination of Beitostølen. From Fv 51 to Olebu, there is an 8 km journey along a mountain road.

Description of the mountain cabin

The mountain cabin or as we say in Norwegian, “seter” or “støl”, is a cosy log cabin with fireplace and spacious sofa, in the living room. Wood burning stove in the kitchen and gas burner for extra heating.

The kitchen is equipped with dining table and gas stove. Fully equipped for cooking and frying food in pans. As well as all utensils you need such as plates, cups and cutlery for 7 people. Gas refrigerator and a small freezer.

A bedroom with triple double bed (double bed + single bed), 2 single bunks and loft. Adequate sleeping place for 6-7 people. We have duvets and pillows. You can bring your own bed linen such as sheets, duvet covers and pillowcases or they can be rented from us.

Bathroom and toilet facilities are of simple standard. There is a traditional toilet in the barn about 20 meters from the cottage. Inside the bedroom there is a small wash station equipped with mirrors, washing bowl and space for toiletries.

In the summer, there is a water tap in the yard with cold fresh water. Those who want a quick and fresh start to the day a morning bath in the lake right below the mountain farm can be recommended!

In the winter, to obtain water you can either melt snow or you can bring with you cans of clean water. How about a fresh snow bath in the morning?

The cabin is intimate and provides an insight to the standard with regard to the space one had in the 17th century. Certainly an atmospheric accommodation, great to enjoy the evenings inside around the fireplace, whilst watching outside the unique colours of the mountain’s magical landscape, all year round.

 This is an adventure in itself!

With great hiking opportunities along the lake, through valleys or up the mountain with majestic views to Jotunheimen and Langsua National Park. The terrain is easy and suitable for everyone.

Olevann is a long shallow mountain lake. This means that it warms up in the summer, even if it is mountain water. Popular for summer baths with a sandy beach and suitable for SUP boards, kayaking, paddling and other water activities.

In summer there are animals grazing just outside the farm.

A neighbouring farmer makes goat cheese for sale. Maybe you want to join in making your own cheese?

Winter season is a unique experience. The light in the mountains in winter is just amazing. Blue hour, sunset and sunrise. With purple, yellow, orange and pink colours interchanging on the horizon. Even if it snows, it’s amazing. Perhaps you are lucky enough to see the Northern Lights dancing across the sky.

We also have other accommodation options.
