I'm an American who stayed solo recently for 3 nights. I'd been on vacation in Norway 7 times before, so had some experience. Beste Bakken was not my first choice - I'd wanted a B&B that was a little cheaper - however my first choice was not available for my full 7-day itinerary. But I'm so glad circumstances steered me...

BesteBakken is probably the most personable place we ever visited. The hostess has truly created a haven for couples and groups that look for an out-of-the-ordinary experience! All rooms are different and tailored to a theme - in addition, each of them is an art gallery where you can purchase what you see on the walls! Food is out of...

This is one of my all time favourite places to stay ever! Beautiful location, views and rooms, exceptional hosts, unbelievable food and sociable mixing with fellow guests from all over the world. If you're a foodie socialite who loves natural beauty, then you (like me) will be in heaven there. Bypass Bergen, and head to here (via Voss Active rafting!)...

Based on great reviews here and on booking.com, we expected a wonderful stay. But it was better than advertised. The room was lovely and very comfortable. The location was beautiful. And the grounds, complete with affectionate alpacas, were terrific. But what puts BesteBakken over the top is its force-of-nature proprietor, Lindis, and the atmosphere she creates. From her sumptuous dinners...

Wonderful stay here. The room was beautiful and the food was outstanding. I recommend taking the evening meal. Even though I'm gluten free and vegan, they accommodated my needs (give them plenty of notice) and the food was delicious. I wish we could have stayed longer. It's a perfect location for relaxing after a day exploring the region.

I highly recommend staying at this B&B, especially for foodies. The hosts are welcoming and offer an exquisite and authentic Norwegian experience. The rooms are newly refurbished with traditional Norwegian (four poster) bed. The room was clean and homely with nice soap, shampoo, body scrub and cream.These items are also sold in the hosts' small shop. The room was a...

Pulled up to this B & B and immediately fell in love with the surroundings and the house. It's located in a quaint town of Hafslo, up on a hill so you get a picturesque view of the town and the fjord below. We stayed 2 nights, and staying here was one of the highlights of my 9 day Norway...

Wife and I were here for a night during our road trip. We drove here from Geirangerfjord the long way through Lom down the scenic route 55 with a stop over at Urnes Stave Church. There was no way we could make their 18:00 check in cut off time. After contacting the hosts, they were very understanding and more than...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at BesteBakken on our trip to Norway. Our hosts where amazing and the facilities proved were great. We stayed in the converted barn (red building) which had a beautiful view of the Fjord below. Lindis provided us with, in my opinion, the best meal we had of the trip. The 3 course masterpiece was created...

I stayed with my family during the month of July, and the experience has been absolutely thrilling! From the moment we entered, we felt a very cozy atmosphere, the rooms were very well designed, and the entire house was exceptionally authentic and traditional, which makes everything feel so much more enjoyable. The backyard is home to three funny but cute...
