Bestul Jakthus is more than a hunting lodge.

About 35 km (40 mins drive) north of Skien lies Bestul Jakthus idyllic and secluded. Here you can have meetings, courses or conferences. Here you will not be disturbed by others, you have the whole place for yourself.

Food and service is the passion of the drivers at Bestul Jakthus in Skien. Here you will be served food and drink at the same level as what you would get at a star restaurant.

At Bestul Jakthus you can celebrate all kinds of parties, such as weddings, confirmations, birthdays, etc. In the dining room there is room for 30 guests. Everything from a 7-course dinner to a buffet is served here. You can also spend the night. The hunting lodge has 21 beds in 10 rooms. Breakfast is served when desired, lunch can also be enjoyed if desired.

Course, meeting, conference
Bestul Jakthus can also accommodate you who are going to have a course, meeting or a conference. The hunting lodge has meeting rooms on the barn. Surrounded by great scenery, the opportunities are many during breaks or after the end of the day. Here you can stroll in the beautiful surroundings, try your luck in Sessions, or simply relax in the fireplace room.

Bestul Jakthus is also rented out to you who want to cook and arrange everything yourself. Then you can choose whether you want to use only the main house with 7 bedrooms or with the brewery house which has 3 bedrooms. The place also has a sauna.

Bestul Jakthus has no fixed check-in and check-out times. You come when it's best for you and go when you're ready for it.

The same goes for the meals. You decide when breakfast, lunch and / or dinner will be served, and if you forget the time when you are out Fishing, the hosts will wait for dinner until you return. The tables are covered with white tablecloths and raised, often self-picked, food and good drinks are served. Bestul Jakthus has all the rights.

Bestul Jakthus has boats, electric motors and simple fishing gear you can use. The boats are located by the fishing lake Økteren which is a 15 minute walk from the hunting lodge. Or maybe a top trip fits into the program? Skiens highest peak, Skåråfjell, is located in Luksefjell. It is nice to walk or cycle to Skåråfjell from Bestul. The last 1.6 km up to the top is the DNT mark. See maps and more about the trip at UT.NO
