The house

Our house has a rich history. As we know today, the house was built in 1918. It was not as big as it is now. We asked the people around what they knew about our house, nice anecdotes etc. We learnt then that the house was a kind of a resthome in the 40's. Refugees from the WWII could live here. We have a newspaper article which tells about the Polish refugees who lived here on Skansen.

At the 50's Mrs. Anna Prom-Möller owned the house. The widow ran the house as a pension. She renovated and extended the house and today you can see for yourself how it looks like. Guests from all over the country, even national celebrities came here during the summar to enjoy nature and tasty dinners at Skansen's Turistgård. Thanks to Rolf, who lived about 30 summers of his life at Mrs. Anna's, we got to know a lot more about her and the pension's history, accompanied by wonderful pictures as a memory of glory days.

In 2006 we opened our doors for the community during 'Bodagarna'. Around 250 people were intrested to look at the results of the renovation. During this wonderful weekend we met some of the old staff who tale gladly how it looked like in the old days, how Mrs. Anna ran the place. They all loved her very much. We saw a lot of smiles and sweet memories twinkling in the eyes....

There were often parties and the pension was fully licensed. The pension had central heating, TV and a fine lounge. It is said that a steamboat ferried passengers to and from the pension with Osby centre as start.

In 2005 we bought the old pension. Imagine how happy we were, a dream came true!

We moved from Holland to Sweden in 2005 as we wanted to fulfil our dream to live in beautiful Sweden. We like to have guests at our's. We are happy to give you a little bit of our dream to enjoy the surroundings around the house and the nature reserve Skansen. We even believe that our house feels completely happy to accomodate guests like it used to do before. A little of the old day's have returned at our charming Bed & Balance.
