The location is unique. It is a such luxury thing to be able to find the real quietness and peace in the Swedish forest in such an unusual hot Scandinavian summer. Highly recommended.
What a great place, pictures can’t describe the views. The house is great, the veranda is magnificent! Thanks Lena for your hospitality.

Tillbringade en helg med vänner. Fantastisk stuga som ligger mitt i skogen. Över förväntan på allt.
This house is a dream come true. It is located in the middle of the forest without any noise from traffic or neighbours. Instead of that we enjoyed the “forest cinema” from the terrace, watched the stars in the night and found blueberries all around the house. We loved to sit at the campfire and to swim in the lake nearby. We would love to have a house like this to live in ;-).
An amazingly idyllic setting to recharge your batteries. Lena’s place is exactly as advertised and is the perfect place for a couple’s getaway. Has all the amenities one would require including a wood fired oven for those wanting to bake bread and make pizzas 🙂 Communication and tips from the the host were on point and she is very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely go back!
My wife, two daughters (4.5yo and 3yo) stayed 10 days in the summer. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and the area. We enjoyed walks in the forest; picking blueberries, lingonberries and raspberries; cooking on the outdoor fire and eating on the deck; swimming in nearby lakes; even fishing in those same lakes from the shore. It was a true retreat away among nature. The house is very cozy, and Lena, the host, provided us all information necessary to enjoy it.

The house in the forest is a unique experience and a wonderful way to discover the Swedish forest. The comfort is perfect and the house is beautifully decorated.
In June we (a couple with two adult boys) rented Lena’s house for 10 days. On the last kilometers of our journey we were already in doubt whether we were still on the right track. But thanks to Lena’s exact description, we were able to find the house well. A fantastic lonely location in the middle of the forest. Peace, silence and a beautiful environment. Lena welcomed us personally and brought flowers with her. Everything was as it was described. The house is very well equipped, with everything you need and a large terrace on two sides of the house. Lena is really a superhost. She is very helpful and friendly and takes care immediately if there is a problem. We can definitely recommend this accommodation and I hope that at some point we can be there again!
We spent a wonderful time in this house in the middle of the forest. Lena had prepared everything before our arrival and the house was preheated. The house was very clean and very well equipped. We have made many walks, nearby there is a lake, which is also within walking distance. Velos were also available, but we didn’t need them. The view is beautiful, you can hear the noise of the river nearby when you sit outside. If you are looking for relaxation and tranquility, you are in the right place.
Närmare naturen än så här kommer man inte. Långt från annan bebyggelse och bullriga vägar. Vi bodde i stugan under sportlovet och fick uppleva vintern i Hälsingland på bästa sätt. Ett perfekt ställe att varva ner och ladda batterierna på. Lena var en mycket bra värd och var snabb på att svara när vi behövde hjälp. Det är bra att veta att man behöver elda ordentligt för att hålla värmen i stugan. Men för oss bidrog det till den mysiga atmosfären. Vi kan varmt rekommendera Lenas stuga.
The four of us (two couples) spent a week over New Years Eve in this wonderful place and it really is as special and as remote as the pictures suggest. We felt right at home the minute we arrived and spent an incredibly relaxing week there. The kitchen is spacious and invites for some really nice cooking sessions. We spent hours standing by the windows staring into the woods and talking long walks in the area. The house has everything you need for such a stay including a good sound system, a really nice light setting, a large and very comfortable couch and so on. Lena is an incredibly nice and forthcoming host and answered to any question we had within minutes. I can really recommend anyone to take a vacation in this wonderful lodge even in the deepest winter. I hope I get the opportunity to come back some day in summer to experience this place and its beautiful environment in a different season.
The time in the house was just incredible! The house is very secluded, a little deeper in a forest, as described and expected. Due to the absolutely exact description and homemade signage of Lena, you can not miss the house! The oven was already on, the house was preheated, Lena had fresh flowers and everything was already prepared. At first you are a bit skeptical, because you are unfounded by a number of horror films, as far as so self-sufficient houses in the middle of the forest are concerned. But you can’t help but fall and I promise you it’s worth every single penny! Always happy!
Sensational location, in the middle of the forest, in absolute calm without any neighbors. The awakenings were magical with the sound of the river and breathtaking scenery. The candlelight evenings, in a wild nature atmosphere, will remain forever in our memories. The house is perfectly equipped with all modern comforts. Our only regret was leaving this paradise but we hope to return someday. Thanks to Lena for her welcome and availability.

We knew that this place was beautiful when we booked it, but the moment we came into the cabin was just ‘wow’! When you travel to the cabin, you soon realize that you are losing reception, which was amazing because ‘no stress’! The smell of wood in the house welcomes you as you enter, the warm stove next to chopped logs made for a cozy feeling, and the view from all sides unveiled the forest – pure nature. When you exit the room and come to the porch, the murmur of the river fills the fresh air. We spent time in the outdoor kitchen/bbq, occasionally brining wood logs into the house, and in the evenings we enjoyed candle lights and wine, as well as outside eating grilled pizza next to the big camp fire. During the day we went down to the river and walked through the forest, picked berries, and some days we just stayed home and enjoyed the music on Lena’s speaker, just chilling. Additionally, Lena was so kind to help us with advices, and generous hospitality, we are beyond thankful! Longing for booking this again and again! Thank you Lena! J&C xx
Lena’s ForRest is a wonderful place: Stylish, tastefully decorated but nevertheless a unique wilderness experience. I spent with my three boys 8 days and we all loved it: strolling though the forest, walking to and in the river, swimming in the nearby lake.
A magical retreat, total peace and quiet, well appointed and self sufficient. Limited power as electricity from solar power and batteries, but not a problem for us as we had wall to wall sunshine. We cooked all meals outside on the barbecue, it would have been to hot to have lit the wood fueled oven. There is gas powered hot water, and hob, and a microwave. But one of the best properties and locations I have ever had the pleasure to have stayed in.
We had a wonderful time at Lenas house. It was so quiet all time we just listened to the nature, even saw a moose and its calf walking by the house. Staying in an off-grid house was very interesting. It is a wonderful place to enjoy nature, calm down and do some hikes in the forests.
