All cabins offer glorious, peaceful settings with a view of the lake, large lots with patios for your use – all only two stone throws from the water.  • Ryagården – This is a traditional Småland farmhouse, newly renovated and equipped with 8 beds. It’s perfect for larger groups or two families.   • Solhäll – Cabin equipped with 4 beds, its own beach and a sea view.   • Sjölyckan – A leisure house just built in a naturally lovely forest setting with a view over the water only 100 m from Lake Rottnen.   • Sjöstugan – This cabin couldn’t be closer to the lake – a wonderful location with its own sand beach.
