Taergesen has been around for like, 184 years. The original building is in good repair, decorated with historic memorabilia. The room we stayed in is in a separate building across the driveway. The room was large, clean, comfortable with a private bathroom. The current proprietor is an energetic, friendly lady who is well-known for her pizza. Breakfast was included, a beautiful array of sausage, cheese, breads, vegetables, cereals, skyr, and cookies.

Just Okay
I think that if you are a fan of Fortitude, it would be be a thrill to stay here. However, as I have never watched the show, I rated this guest house based on the quality of my stay. We were in the building beside the main house. It is like a motel in that you can drive the car right up to the door of the room. The room was small and very basic. It was in need of new pillows, linens and a paint job. The sparseness of the room did not make it feel warm and inviting. Based on all of the positive reviews that I had read, my friends and I were disappointed. The evening meal In the dining room was satisfactory.

Beautiful surroundings. It had a very modern, spacious, bathroom and large flat screen tv. Brekkie was included however we had to leave early. We were told we could get something from cook if we had to leave early but no one was around!
