We are typically big, high-service, five-star hotel chain people (Ritz, Four Seasons, etc.) because we are a family of six and need several connecting rooms, big dining tables, restaurant options, flexible services, etc. This trip we used a travel agent who put us at the BesteBakken and I had some concerns when I saw the website. But this hotel turned out to be the highlight of our hotels in Norway. The place is a family business and they have incredible pride in hosting their guests. The property itself is gorgeous, with a main house and a renovated barn, gardens, patios, views to the water, and some friendly alpacas. There are a few room configuration options (we had one room with three singles and two doubles, and two bathrooms). The rooms were spotless, well-decorated, and well maintained with great views of the lake. Dinner was a three course sit down dinner, almost like you were at someone's home in Norway - with silver, crystal, flower centerpieces, and candles. Much of the food was locally sourced and homemade, and the wife/mother shared details about each course before it was served. Breakfast was equally as nice. All in all, a highlight of our trip!
