We went for a three day trip to dear friends, and had to stay the first night at a B&B.
We stayed in a grand old house, where the upper apartment with four rooms had been converted into a B&B. Our lovely hostess told us she had finally left her career in Stockholm and started a B&B – an old dream of hers. Originally thought for Spain or Italy, but they had settled for the southern part of Sweden instead. (At least it was in the south…she laughed.)
The house was finally ready in 2019 – then came the pandemic. As so many other small businesses they have had a hard time now – so it felt good we had chosen their place. We will certainly recommend it to our friends.
From here, we visited two famous Swedish castles. Maybe I will post on them later.

How lovely! A perfect place for a vacation.
We were lucky to find it.
The house is so beautiful.
Glad you liked it – it was really well kept and comfy.
This is lovely and the hollyhocks are stunning! ~and yes please I’m very keen to see castles!
Thanks, Liz – there will be castles…
What a lovely house. I will have to look for it (or something like it) if I ever get to Sweden again …
Well…I guess you will find some similar houses if you go looking for them! If we ever get traveling again…
Looks like a wonderful place to stay!
I loved it, Nora. Quiet, peaceful and well thought throuch in every detail. Nice people running it as well.
With my passionate love of art I would in all probability have been upstanding half the night at two of the walls acquainting myself with each photo, sketch and painting . . .
Ha, yes – and in the little shed as well – lying in the hammocks!
Oh what a very beautiful place!
Glad you liked it, Lisa. I slept extremely well there.
WHAT a characterful place! Love it!
It’s looks like a gorgeous B&B , everything I’d want it to be!
Sandy – it was so comfortable, clean, neat and in every detail we could see the love of creating it.
Looks delightful, my sort of place.
I’d stay there in a second! My husband once said that when he retired we should run a B&B. I asked him who would be retired. Certainly not me. 🙂 What a gorgeous place this is and in a beautiful spot it looks like.
So you are one of the B&B lovers – at least your husband is! I loved this place, but would never dream of running one myself.
You made an excellent choice of B&B. A good one makes a short break so much more memorable. I love those hollyhocks!
So true. When we were younger we only chose places for a sleep that night. Nowadays it has become much more important and a nice piece of the travel.
Lovely place. I wish I could have just a small getaway like that. Life is very chaotic rn😒. It’s good you enjoyed your stay
Yes, life is chaotic almost everywhere. I wish you will find a getaway – at least inside if nothing else..
It was! Every detail perfect in style.
Looks rather wonderful and so comfortable
Very comfortable too, yes. The bathroom was in checked black and white and every detail vintage style. Gorgeous.
Looks delightful. I like to find B&Bs in houses I could never afford to live in and experience the lifestyle for just a few days.
I see your point, Jude – I could never have bought a house like this, and I don’t want to think about the costs for the renovation…Everything super and old style. From bathroom to kitchen.
Yes! I agree, Jude, I have stayed in some marvellous places…
What a cute place. I love staying in places like this!
We have come to almost always choose this kind of places. More personal and always neat and clean.
We love them as well, but we also love the traditional Bed and Breakfast Historic Inns. Love how these are preserved and still in use.
I agree with you!
What a wonderful B&B !
Happy you like it! So neat and well preserved the old style.
that B&B looks really great. If we’ll travel to Sweden, we’ll ask you for the address.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a happy end of the week

🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Thank you – I will gladly give you the address – it is in Lidköping..
That looks such a wonderful place to stay – so beautiful 🙂 No wonder you fell in love!
That looks lovely. So long as you didn’t have actually to sleep in the hammocks!
Noooo, we didn’t. The first image was of the neat bedroom! Loved the wallpaper.
