Who We Are

We, Hans & Jackie Lindmark, run an English style country lodge, situated on a peninsula in the beautiful Alandian archipelago.

The old house is extended and restored by Hans himself, who is a former carpenter, and the main building is built in an old manner style. We have been eager to keep the original farm’s Alandian atmosphere and together with Jackie’s English heritage and inspiration from trips around the world, it has become a beautiful place for us and for you to enjoy.

We offer high-grade accommodation for about 16-20 guests in a peaceful and rural area, about 30 minutes’ drive from Mariehamn. In our restaurant, which is open mainly for our guests, we offer excellent and wholesome meal (Note: In 2025 we will not be serving evening meals during June, July and August).

We welcome you to Björnhofvda Gård, a small-scale country lodge with room for about 20 guests. We manage Björnhofvda Gård to be such a place we would have chosen for our own vacation and hence also would return to. Therefore, we focus not on luxury per se but the extraction of luxury in every-day-life, such as the character of the house and high quality service.
