Unique accomodation

Idyllic between majestic trees and with an adventurous view you'll find Hamsun Lodge. The house belonged to Knut Hamsun's farm Skogheim when the author himself lived on Hamarøy from 1911 to 1917. Today the house is arranged for overnight stays for 2-6 people.

A really fantastic place

"So now I’ve actually spent the night in Hamsun's writing lodge where he sat himself writing Growth of the Soil. A really fantastic place. Thanks to Tina and Rolf for letting us rent.
