A story to take care of

Cultural-historical stay in a distinctive setting

The farm Røisheim has roots back to the Viking Age and is mentioned in historical documents from the 17th century. The oldest of the current buildings dates back to the 18th century and are in the loft style - typical of old mountain farmsteads. The buildings and courtyard were listed in 1923 and provide a truly unique tranquility and atmosphere.

historic rooms and suites

At Røisheim, none of the rooms are alike and have retained the old names that testify to their former use. Here, historical ambience meets modern five star comfort — in unique small houses, characteristic cottages, charming rooms and beautiful suites. Several suites are located in their own houses and have both a fireplace and a hot tub. A stay at Røisheim is one you will never forget.

The Queen Suite

The Queen Suite takes its name from H.M. Queen Sonja who has visited Røisheim several times. The suite is Røisheim's largest and is located in the old Skolestugu. There is sleeping space for four, a seating area, a fireplace, a shower and a bath. The rooms have recently been renovated in collaboration with Riksantikvaren.


When Røisheim was a coaching inn, the two-story stables served as a resting place for horses carrying travelers between the east and west. Today, the stables have been converted into spacious family rooms, complete with a hot tub and four-poster bed.


Klesloftet is one of our oldest and most charming houses, spanning two floors. Originally, it served as a storage area where clothes were dried and bed sheets and linens were kept. This building also houses the food bell, which is rung to signal dinner.

"Har sovet utrolig godt i Stallen, og spist en fantastisk frokost på Røisheim skysstasjon. Hyggelig og oppmerksom betjening, god service hele veien, rent og pent. Vi fikk et veldig godt inntrykk av stedet. Det virker som om at både eierne og de ansatte legger mye arbeid i at gjestene skal trives, og det var ikke vanskelig på et sted som dette. Vi kommer gjerne tilbake."
