Flam Cottage Tour

Comments 3 Standard

Cottage Christy

We love our little cottage by the fjord.  It is perfect for us.

Flam is a town that is sort of a crossroads. Travelers who want to ride the “most beautiful train in the world” or take a quick ferry jaunt to see the fjords flood into this little village of 450 inhabitants each day and head right back out.   But I’m so glad we took the time to linger.

I fell in love with this listing when scouring VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner) over a year ago.  I basically built our trip around us staying in this little red cottage.

We have big picture windows overlooking Aurlandsfjord (the name of our little bay) and spend most of the day – and night (the sun does not set until nearly midnight!) on these sofas just starting at the scenery.

Cottage LR2

Our cottage has a little kitchen.

Bathroom/Laundry (with 2nd small bath upstairs)

Cottage Bath

A king-sized bed with a view to the fjord.  We love these individual duvets – no stealing covers and super easy to make up (you just fold in half and go).

Cottage Master

A 2nd bedroom (queen bed), which we use as our luggage/dressing room, and a twin room with a view of the pastures – we can hear the cows moo from our house!

AND it comes with our own rowboat!

There is excitement, too. On our first night, we settled in for a peaceful evening on the fjord –

And then imagine our surprise when we woke up to this view!

Cottage Cruise Ship

We have downloaded the ship schedule and keep up with who comes each day. Sometimes small expedition cruises, sometimes mega-ships.  Our favorite Queen Mary 2 will be here a few days after we leave.

We feel like we’ve discovered a secret gem. While most folks immediately jump on a train or ferry to their next destination, we have come to love the ebb and flow of this peaceful little village by the side of the fjord.

    • The weather is great! They tell us it is usually in 60s and rainy, but now 80s and sunny. We are very lucky! It is starting to get a little cooler now though – but still sunny.
