In the winter garden you serve yourself the breakfast which is mainly organic. There are also TV and You can surf for free on wifi. Besides a direct entrance of Your own from the yard You have a direct entrance to a patio in a secluded part of our garden where You can have breakfast, or simply enjoy a warm summer evening.
It is about 150 m to the beach for a bath in summer and ice skating in winter, if the track on the ice is cleared.
I can add that our ordinary 2 beds sizes are (90 x 200 cm) and the 2 extra beds sizes are (80 x 200 cm). The two extra beds are proper beds as well, i.e. real interior sprung mattresses. The closeness to spacious rooms för festivities in Österå bystuga make our B&B to a convenient accommodation at larger celebrations and festivities.
The village is also a part of the world heritage, Falun copper mine. You can see traces from the smokey and power demanding industry in Österå. For instance, the beach used to be a shipping port for the ore.
Nowadays the beach is used for sunbathing and swimming and on the last evening in april, “Valborg”, we have festivities there: boat race, song, mingle, speech and fireworks. It is a spectacular view with all the fireworks around the lake mirroring in the black glassy surface of the lake. Hot summer days it is nice to take a refreshing bath.
