|Wild fresh cut flowers, my favorite|
“I must have stepped into a fairytale!” I told myself the minute I entered Korstäppan Hotel. If only I had found this amazing place before getting married I would have held my wedding reception here for sure. Why, oh why, didn’t I know about this gorgeous mansion before? Well, these were just some of the thoughts that crossed my mind as my husband and I were checking in this amazing hotel in Leksand.
From the window we could see the immense terraced garden and at the very end, Lake Siljan. It’s impossible not to love just how healthy and green the grass looks at this latitude and we decided that the first order of things before unpacking should be checking out the garden. One step followed another, and before we knew it, we were wandering through the forest nearby picking berries and building some of the memories we are most fond of from our summer trip through Scandinavia.
The quantity of charming vintage objects, tapestries, drawings and fresh cut wild flowers decorating the lounge and the hallways of the hotel was however the key element that made us both fall in love with this place. The uniqueness of it all made us ask permission to peek inside some other guest rooms, just to discover that no two chambers looked the same. The carpets, fabrics and colorful patterns used in the decor, were a ticket to a charming trip into the past.

It’s difficult to put into words the feelings this place stirred in me. Korstäppan is a very special hotel, more than a hotel, for us it was like a home away from home and the perfect place to cuddle during a rainy afternoon. Actually all those long gone feelings from when I was a kid visiting my grandparents house came back to me, and briefly I even hoped for a bedtime story. Well, the cookies were delicious and I settled for them.
