Explore Dalsland with your family

A lock keeper's cottage by the Dalsland canal is a perfect starting point when you want to explore everything that Dalsland and Nordmarken have to offer. Activities, see sighting, summer cafes and adventures in the wilderness and by the lake.


Our lock keeper cottages are all located by the lake surrounded by charming environment by the locks and with nature in all directions. A perfect starting point for anyone who wants to experience the peace and quiet that nature provides and for those who want long autumn fishing trips.

Boat and fishing

Six of our cottages include a boat when you rent the cabin. The others come with a nice rowing boat. The boat is alredy moored at the jetty below the cottage when you arrive and you can easily buy a fishing license online.

About the cottages

All our cottages have a fantastic location by the water and are part of our 150 year history. Most of the cottages are newly renovated but have retained their original charm and you see traces of all generations of lock keepers who have lived here.

The cottages can accommodate between two and six people. All cottages along the canal are fully equipped for self-catering. You bring your own bed linen, towels and consumables. All of the cottages includes a private boat.
