The Lodge Torsby

During spring 2015, after 15 years of both being self-employed in consulting, project management and marketing, we felt an eagerness to invest in something new. We, Marc Houbiers and Joanne Kloosterboer, wished to find ourselves a new challenge in which we could work more closely together. Our dream is to combine our passions and shared interest for travel and outdoor sports. We wanted to create something together on a beautiful but also challenging location; a spot that we, but also others, can enjoy.

Our ambition brought us back to Sweden, the country where we spent our first holiday together in 1988. After we visited several places, our choice fell on the former 'Vägsjöfors Gästgivaregård' in Torsby; in the Värmland region. It is an old, authentic wooden house with its own story situated on the shore of the Nedre Brocken lake and at the foot of the Hovfjället.

THE LODGE Torsby is a special place for us in a wonderful setting; a location where our heart starts beating faster. Our dream is to share our joy with as many people as possible. We express part of that dream in a concept we call ‘We Time'.

Everyone who loves Sweden, but also those who would like to get a Scandinavian experience for the first time, are most welcome. ‘Vi ses' at our wonderful B&B THE LODGE Torsby!
