THE HISTORY

Back in the day, timber floating was a common way to transport timber. The timber floated inland from the forests on flowing streams and rivers to sawmills on the coast.The people who worked with timber were known as loggers and they had a very hard, and often dangerous job. Walking on rolling timber and breaking up log jams could sometimes result in drowning.

Strategically placed logger’s cabins close to the rivers and streams were built during the 1940’s. In the 70’s and 80’s this method of transporting timber stopped as trucks and trains took over. Logger’s Lodge is an original timber cabin from 1942 with a big central fireplace in the middle of the cabin.

This cabin served as a temporary home for up to 16 loggers, all of whom slept on bunk beds after a hard day’s work. Everybody had his own cast-iron pan and sat around the fireplace to cook food. You can still feel the history in the building and in the surroundings that reminds you of another era.

Today the lodge is carefully renovated to a romantic luxury suite for 2. The exterior timber logs are painted in the Swedish traditional falu red paint and the pine interior walls are burnt to emphasize the beautiful pattern in the wood.

The Bodträskå stream that floated the timber is just a stone’s throw away from the lodge.
