Tree stumps - Norrqvarn

Lyrestad, Mariestad

The small Magic Tree Stump

In the small Magic Tree Stump there is a double-bed and space for an extra mattress if needed. There is also a small terrace from which you can enjoy the sunset. In the third tree stump on the hill there is a toilet and a washbasin; showers and a kitchenette are to be found in the hostel section.

The large Magic Tree Stump

The big Magic Tree Stump has 4 beds and two rooms in a duplex with a double bed, bunks and space for extra mattresses. In the third stump on the hill there is a toilet and a washbasin; showers and a kitchenette are inside the hostel section.

Just below the hill with the tree stumps there is the Children's Mini-Canal, which is a miniature of Göta Canal. The play boat Vigdis is moored at the quay and Professor Gullström has his little house that you can pop into. Children and grown-ups alike can easily spend a day or two here. In the summertime we also have our ice-cream kiosk open for big and small tree stump trolls.
