Vevelstad Gjestegård offers bed and breakfast accommodation in historic surroundings, located near the center of Vevelstad, a small municipality just north of Brønnøysund. The guesthouse serves homemade local traditional food and has a farm shop in the storehouse.

In the rolling cultural landscape by Vevelstadsundet, you’ll find the ancestral farm and accommodation facility, Vevelstad Gjestegård. Since the 16th century, the farm has evolved into what it is today, with history literally embedded in its walls.

The main house, dating back to 1907, was restored and converted into a guesthouse in 2017. It now offers 9 rooms with a total of 18 beds, along with 5 bathrooms. Breakfast is included, and evening meals are available upon request. Lunch and dinner can be ordered, featuring local traditions and locally sourced ingredients. Here, you’ll experience a slower pace of life, allowing you to unwind and enjoy excellent food and farm experiences.

The guesthouse also has a farm shop in the storehouse, where you can purchase their own and locally produced products.

By the sea, there are 3 high-standard cabins called “rorbuer” available for rent, each accommodating 6-8 people. It’s also possible to rent boats and kayaks.

Hosts Ole Johnny and Sigrid Vevelstad warmly welcome all guests!

Vevelstad Gjestegård is open year-round.

Vevelstad is located between the cities of Brønnøysund and Sandnessjøen. From Brønnøysund, you’ll need to take the ferry from Horn to Andalsvågen, and from Sandnessjøen, the ferry from Tjøtta to Forvik.

There is also a express boat between Tjøtta, Forvik, and Vistenfjorden.
