About the Owner

I have been coming to Twain Harte since I was 5 years old when my parents bought their first cabin here. The Norse Hus is my second cabin and was not intended as a rental at first. My family and I enjoy the cabin year round. We are avid skiers and hikers. I am also a semi-professional photographer and the cabin has many of my local work decorating the walls.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the cabin and loved the privacy on the back deck.

The deer walking through the property and all the birds was great.

Having only 2 bathrooms with a large group, majority

women can be challenging in itself.

But overall I enjoyed the stay there and would recommend it to others.

Especially smaller groups or family of 8 or less.

Thank you ~ Mozie

From the Owner

The large deck wraps around three sides of the cabin so you can always find a sunny or shady spot, whatever you prefer. The house is huge on Twain Harte standards and works very well for multiple families with children. The downstairs has a large family room, which is great for kids, while the upstairs has multiple living spaces, so everyone can find peace or activity within the house.
