Lockkeeper's cottage in Upperud
Take the morning coffee overlooking Upperud's lock. A newly renovated cottage by the lock in Upperud, with garden and patio, and great walking trails around the corner.
This lock keeper home was renovated in the spring of 2020 and is now a 54 sqm modern holiday home with an old-fashioned charm. Bathroom with shower, toilet and washing machine. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher. Living room with dining table and sofa bed for two. Bedroom with double bed. On the second floor there is a sleeping loft with two beds. Dogs are welcome!
Just a few kilometers from Upperud you will find Håverud with the lock stairs and the famous aqueduct – a bridge that solved the problem with the steep passage in Håverud for our great canal and railway builder, Nils Ericson. In Dalsland Center, on the other side of the canal you will, during the summers, find a tourist information, restaurant, café and shops.
