In the mingling area, it is nice to barbeque together, while the fireplace in the background creates an extra atmosphere.
We can also offer you food from the excellent kitchen of Boen Gård, that was in the Michelin-guide this year. The menu will be based upon ingredients of the season.
We are open during the summer, from 1st of May to 30th of September.
The common area includes a service building with a kitchen, which maintains the standard of a commercial kitchen. Here you can make / prepare food for the event, order catering or have your own chef. If you wish, we can be helpful in arranging contact with a chef.
Flåderhytta was built as a memorial to the timber floating in the area, which took place from about the 16th century to the early 1980s. Grete’s great-grandfather and grandfather were both “walking bosses”, responsible for controlling the log drive. -The roof of the wooden lavvu rests on six large «posts» with river stones on top, and between the «posts» various types of log booms are attached. The «posts» illustrate the large boom houses that stood in lake Flakksvann and held log booms in place. The function of these log barriers was to guide the timber in the right direction in lake Flakksvann. You can still see an old boom house in the lake, and there are several remains of boom mounts along the water. The log cabin contains photos, information, and objects from the timber floating, so here you are surrounded by an exciting cultural history!
