A historical farm

Nordre Brænd Gård through the ages

The farm was build in 1849. It has served many purpose through time, one building is now the main Brænd residence and the others have been converted to cabins for tourists, hiker and fishers. More history to come soon.

An authentic piece of norwegian history

Knut Hamsun (August 4, 1859 – February 19, 1952) was a Norwegian writer who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1920.

Marie and Knut Hamsun lived at Nordre Brænd in Sollia as newlyweds, from the summer of 1909 to the summer of 1910. Here he worked on the novel A Wanderer Plays with Sordin and the play Life in Violence. The cabin was his refuge, no one was allowed in here, not even Marie. He should have complete peace while writing. We think this place is easy to share, here are two decent beds, a slightly shorter (170 cm), and a loft for the slightly older children.
