How do we deal with covid-19? During March to May (2020) there were several cancellations due to covid-19. Which I, after all, were quite thankful to. The situation was quite new to us all. In summer the guests began showing up again. The strategy was two weeks of quarantine between the bookings. Then someone was delayed another earlier which in the end resulted in only one week between. But, two days are supposed to be enough.
Guests are most welcome! You live by Yourselves, You can choose to bring Your own breakfast. I clean, and have plenty of time to make a very thorough clean between every booking. It means that all surfaces are wiped off with soapwater, handles, buttons, taps … and so on. Cloth is washed. Thoug all this I normally do anyway. The virus is a lipid and is destroyed by detergents – as far as I know. The strategy seems to work since nor guests neither hosts (us) has been ill. … and hopfully covid-19 has withdrawn when time comes for Your visit. Read more

View over lake and close to beach

Assembly rooms with garden and beach
The closeness to spacious assembly rooms for festivities in Österå bystuga makes our B&B to a convenient accommodation at larger celebrations and festivities.
The village Österå lies in the landscape where the artists Anders Zorn and Arvid Backlund were born and brought up and where “Vasaloppet” has taken place since 1922, Dalarna. Karin and Carl Larsson are also among the famous artists associated with Dalarna.
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.
