In spring 2017 Länsstyrelsen Värmland decided to approve our application for ‘företagsstöd’.
This financial support is specifically granted for the next part of the renovation of THE LODGE – Torsby.
It comes from ‘Landsbygdsprogrammet 2014-2020’ and also partly comes from the European Agricultural Fund f
or Rural Development. The application consists of the rebuilding of the old inn ‘Vägsjöfors Gästgivaregård’
to a bed and breakfast (B&B) facility in Torsby.
Previously, the owners – Marc Houbiers en Joanne Kloosterboer – renovated ‘Tullhuset’ and ‘Esmee’s Cottage’.
Now it is time to modernize and adjust the main building ‘THE LODGE’ to the new business.
The project includes rebuilding of 5 bedrooms, construction of new bathrooms, drainage and sewage system
and the installation of a supplementary and sustainable heating system.
