As early as the 1300s, Løken was the ancestral farm of Einride Simonson Lagmann, a lagmann (lawspeaker) in Bergen. Even after the Reformation, the farm remained a noble estate. From the 1700s it served as a rural court. The present building was built in 1790. Skrivergaarden is available for private groups. It is a place for tranquility, revitalization, and revolutionary thoughts. Here, writers can book a long-term stay and give new meaning to the concept of Skrivergaarden (the writer’s residence), and management teams and boards can go on a retreat and think new, revolutionary thoughts. But the place also offers a historical setting for big celebrations and events.
Skrivergaarden is perfectly located for all kinds of activities, all year round, with short distances to great hunting, fishing, nature, and cultural experiences.
It is not possible to book single rooms – the whole house must be booked. There are 12 double rooms, and the property sleeps 22. Our most frequent guests are companies and groups of friends who want to gather in a quiet place for a workshop, and to go hunting, fishing, hiking, and enjoy nature experiences.
