Prestlia has been habited from 1612 till 1839. Today, we are still able to find direct relatives to those who kept the farm in the 1830s. The property belonged the farm Hølås Nedre from 1849, and the mountain farm was kept with both goats and cows up untill 1969.
The shed is from the 1800s, its walls are solid wood fully restored in the 1990s. The old cowshed was demolished during the winter season of 1973, and a new one was built in the same spot to replace it.
A storehouse of round timber, originally from Geitingsvollen in Levanger, is from about 1814. It is fully restored and isolated. In the ground floor is dining and meeting facilities. In second floor is the lodging.
At Prestlia, we keep cows, calves, lams, goat and bow. We invite you to visit our exibition which includes old tools, clothing, local history, mountain farm stories with pictures and text.
Food and drink
As is custom, we offer coffee, tea, limonade, norwegian waffels and ‘svele’ with home-made sour-cream and butter. Sour cream porrige on order. For group orders, pleace call in advance.
From Prestlia yoy can go hiking on Flintheia. There is an old mountainfarm road which goes past Durmålshaugen and to the mountainfarms on Flintheia.
There are three permanent beds with the possibility of more on the second floor in the storehouse. The storehouse can also be used for meetings and have room for about 10 persons.
