House in mid-Sweden close to mountain adventures
We live in a 138 square meter sized house, with a small garden in Östersund, in the Jämtland district of mid-Sweden, an hour away from the mountains. The house has three bedrooms, two living rooms (one can be used as a an extra bedroom if needed), an outdoor dining room and a terrace on the roof to be used whenever the Jämtland weather is in a good mood. On the ground floor, in addition to one of the living rooms and the outdoor dining room, there’s a fully equipped kitchen, a small bathroom, a single bedroom and a washing room with a washing machine and a dryer along with a separate section with a shower and a sauna. A door leads out to a back garden which contains a small terrace and a trampoline.
The first floor has a large bedroom with a double bed, a bathroom with a shower, a single bedroom, a living room and a door leading to a terrace on the roof. If needed, to sleep one more, we also have an extra, comfortable, single foldable bed (with bedding, of course).
Jämtland is truly a paradise for an active family who enjoys being in the nature and who wants to explore some untouched wilderness in the outskirts of Europe, still easily accessible by car even as a daytrip from Östersund. Hiking, trail running and mountain biking in the mountains is popular among locals summertime, along with picking of e.g. blueberries and cloudberries depending on the season.
Östersund can be reached from Stockholm either by train (4,5 hours from Arlanda airport if you take the faster trains), by car (5 hours from Arlanda + breaks) or by plane (1 hour). We are happy to exchange cars as well, and if the flights match you can just pick up our car at the Arlanda airport.
We have a cat (who will not be at home, though), so the house might not be suitable if you are very allergic to cats.

In addition to all the fantastic nature surrounding the city, Östersund of course also has plenty of easily accessible activities attracting older kids, such as an indoor swimming pool with water slides, a laser dome hall, go-kart, indoor climbing, etc.
We will add a few additional photos soon!

- Grocery store (1.0 km)
Our house is located right next door (only 100 meters!) from the “Östersund cross-country skiing club area” which includes the Rannåsen nature reserve with an almost endless variety of hiking and trail running tracks, roller ski tracks and a mountain biking track, and with just 400 meters to the Swedish national biathlon stadium. Summertime you can also find plenty of blueberries in the Rannåsen forest, which is located just outside our house. Despite the closeness to nature, we our location is still less than 2 km from the “main square” of Östersund, with a very good variety of restaurants, shopping and cafes for a city of Östersund’s size. You can either walk, use our bikes or catch a bus that takes you directly to the city center.
Östersund is a compact city and you never have more than 10 minutes by car to anywhere in the city, which also makes it easy to get around by bike, as long as you don’t mind the hilly landscape 😊. Nearest grocery store is located about one km from our house, although with an ascent on your way back to our house.
Nearest playground (relatively small though), with a small football field, is located by a school located about 400 meters from our home.
The distance to the train station is about 3 km, and to the airport about 10-15 km.
