Waterland, the Dutch room (Holland)
Warm, cozy, authentic and highly comfortable. This description fits all of our two person bedrooms. Each of them has a luxurious bathroom. Wireless internet is available. We have made a considerable investment in dreamlike double beds and there is ample space for a toddler bed. The rooms have two more things in common: a view on the farm garden and an awesome silence at night. But that’s where the similarities stop. Our themed rooms are completely different! In decorating them we took inspiration from the atmospheres of many different countries. Will you choose a Canadian, French or Dutch touch on your stay in Norway?
Let’s introduce ourselves
We are Marco and Marie-José, a couple from Amsterdam in The Netherlands. We are both working in the creative industry, Marie-José in interior design and Marco in graphic design. A few years ago we decided to set-up a ‘guesthouse’ in Norway, as an area where for both to freely express our creativity. And it shows: step by step Herangtunet is being transformed into a pleasant environment where anybody feels right at home.
Our guests are housed in a fully furnished apartment with its proper entrance or in one of vife stylish themed rooms (Canada, France, Holland, Iceland and Sweden). We also have a stylish restaurant with a cozy wood-burning stove. Herang Tunet is an ideal starting point for holidays in Norway throughout the year. A 110 mile drive away from Oslo, the village is situated in one of Norway’s sunniest regions, close to a major lake, a ski resort (Beitostolen) and the Jotunheimen National Park. We are looking forward to receive you as our guests.Marco en Marie-José & Balder
About Herang Tunet
Squeezed in between the Hegge Fjord and Jotunheimen, Norway’s highest mountain range, in the Norwegian province of Valdres one can find the village of Heggenes. Here, at 500 meters altitude, surrounded by woods and water, is a magnificent estate, with right in the middle, as in a fairy tale, our sizable wooden home. It’s name? Herang Tunet! And Tunet means ‘farm garden’.
Our guesthouse is a typical traditional build for the Valdres province. Around it are some more ancient (uninhabited) buildings that the province has moved here in order to conserve its cultural heritage. We acquired Herang Tunet in 2003 and are now in a position to house 14 guests in vife stylish themed rooms and in a fully furnished apartment.
Our restaurant with a cozy wood-burning stove and big dining tables makes the hall perfect for celebrations and parties. We transfered Herang Tunet into a full service design hotel with an authentic atmosphere that anybody would love to have at home!
The apartment is close to a lake that’s suitable for swimming and fishing. The house is equipped with a roomy kitchen with a cooker with four gas-burners, microwave, electrical oven, dishwasher and various small kitchen appliances. There are two bedrooms with blankets and pillows present. Bed linen and towels can be rented. A children’s bed with mattress and children’s chair are present. Herang Tunet is a fine starting point for a variety of hikes. One of the most famous of all is the hike along the Bygdin lake in the Jotunheimen National Park.
Studio apartment Canada
As soon as you enter the Canadian room, you find yourself in a North-American log house. The room has been designed to offer warmth and comfort: fur pillows, plaids and reindeer hides just invite you to make yourself snug. Sitting in sturdy leather couches, you enjoy a hearting drink at the authentic wood-burning stove.
As a studio apartment the room offers a wooden kitchen unit with a cooker with two gas-burners, where you can have a culinary go. At the small dinner table you might enjoy the tasty fish that you just caught in the fjord. You can also use it to sit down and write a letter announcing that you’ll never return home again …
For ‘notre chambre Française’ we took inspiration from the times of Louis XVI. The room has royal decorations en is exceptionally lush and colourful. Pièce de résistance is the royal four-poster bed, magnificently covered with velvet plaid and countless pillows. In order to create the perfect boudoir, we have chosen authentic vintage wallpaper, a colourful crystal chandelier, a classic dressing-table with a stylish seat around the frail wood-burning stove. The bathroom has been equipped with real copper taps and has a beautiful wainscotting.
All on all this room is guaranteed to offer you a royal experience and long-lasting memories.
As the famous poem goes “Thinking about Holland.....” we found that we should not neglect our own heritage. The Dutch room is a tribute to the surroundings in which we have lived so many years: the area around Broek in Waterland in the province of North-Holland.
The typical wooden panelling of the traditional houses from this area, are represented on the walls of this room. The colour palette boasts authentic Dutch colours: Broeker grey, Hindelooper and old-Dutch blues with a hint of Delft blue. The modern very comfortable bed is covered with old Dutch bed linen. The walls are decorated with stylish black and with prints with typical Dutch scenery. Enjoy sitting cosily at the humming stove. The old-fashioned couches are just perfect for reading one of Mankell’s thrillers. Just when you are about to forget where you are, you can stand on the balcony and allow the Norwegian landscape to make its impression on you.
