We are the third generation owners at Bårdshaug Herregård. We grew up here where both our parents worked at the hotel, and we lived here in Orkdal during our childhood and teenage years. This was our childhood playground and as we grew up we took on various summer and extra jobs. In 2015, after some years in separate places outside the valley, we decided to move back home and take over the running of the hotel. We are fond of our region and would like to contribute to developing it further. We have many ideas for the future, and our ambition is to make this into one of the best historic hotels in the country.
We think Orkdal and the surrounding areas are incredibly beautiful, and that we have a lot to offer. Here you will find the charming small town of Orkanger, exciting industry – and war history, experiences, culture, beautiful scenery, great sport facilities and local food of the highest quality. Our vision is to make the Orkdal region the must-see attraction in the Trøndelag region. We aim to achieve this by advertising the many attractions in the region and actively promoting tourism.
We would like all our guests at Bårdshaug Herregård to have a small taste of our community, whether it is the good food from local farms, the hospitable culture, our wonderful salmon river, the fascinating Christian Thams history, or something else. Our wish is that you will enjoy being here and that you would like to return to experience more.
We would like Bårdshaug Herregård to be a hotel full of life, that also draws people from the village and surrounding areas. Since 2016, we have organised several concerts and events – for adults and families alike. This is something we would like to continue and develop further.
We will also keep developing our restaurant, food and beverages, and continue to offer you tasty home-cooked meals made from local produce and served in a warm and friendly atmosphere.
Our aim is to make you feel relaxed and comfortable during your stay with us, just as you would if you were visiting a good friend. We wish you a warm welcome!
