Staff and Faculty Invite to Stay at Bjorklunden

Greetings!

Hope this finds you and yours all well and happy!

Good News! We are going to continue outside rentals from January through March, 2021. Folks who are visiting are couples or families that have been ‘weathering this storm’ together. : )

Though the lodge remains closed – we have been renting the two outbuildings – Studio and Stabbur – as well as the Staff Quarters (located in a sequestered wing of the lodge). Due to COVID – we’re doing things a little differently. Folks are bringing their own food and linen. They are cleaning and sanitizing before departure. And they are leaving a donation to cover their stay.

If this sounds like something you’d like to do (or do again!) send me a couple date ranges along with your building preference (if you have one) and we’ll go from there. We’ll be booking on a first come first served basis. 

Be safe. Be healthy. Be of good cheer! k. : )
