Petrines guesthouse is community owned and run. Of the 120 villagers, about 30 of them are shareholders and even more is lending a helping hand at the common. A lot of the villagers have been engaged ever since they bought the formerly retirement home from the local government in 1992.
We co-operate with local farmers to use their produce in our cooking, we employ primarily local staff and in every way we can, the local community and the guesthouse is to mutual support. To know more about how we run the place, read the About us sheet.
We are open all year around on request for groups larger than 6 persons. In the period June 11th to September 10th, we are open daily for accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The opening hours can be subject to change on short notice, so please contact us for latest update on opening hours and services upon arrival.
In 2016 Petrines celebrate 100 years since the opening as a Public Retirement Home; Petrine Hviths Minde, i.e. In Memory of Petrine Hvidt. The retirement home lasted until 1987, then reopened as a pub and restaurant in 1992, and fully as guesthouse in 1999.
