Welcome to check in to Förvaltaren - a charming turn-of-the-century house on Marholmen. The house, which dates from the end of the 19th century, has two floors and plenty of space for wonderful socializing. Here you live close to nature with a large lawn and a secluded terrace for lovely meals.
The house has three double rooms with single beds, two bathrooms and a shared kitchen and living room. The house's glazed punch veranda is ideal for evening card games and socializing with loved ones. From Förvaltaren, it is only a few minutes' walk to piers, activities, a playground, light trails, an outdoor gym, forest walks and much more.
This turn-of-the-century villa is typical of the period and comfortable for a large family, a group of friends or a small company.
A longing for the countryside and farming led wholesaler Nils Berg to buy Marholmen in 1900. The administrator's house was home to the person in charge of agriculture on the island. The first administrator was Signe Stenborg, who came here in 1909. The year before, Nils and Hanna Berg had started an agricultural school for Stockholm boys. There was little interest in the school and it ceased in 1912.
A few years later, the home for boys became the Vilo home for workers' wives after the Bergs donated part of Marholmen to LO. It was common then for wealthy people to donate money to charitable foundations. What was unique about this donation was that it was given to the labor movement.
One of those who received a free stay at Vilohemmet in 1917 was Selma Blomberg, who worked at the Rörstrand porcelain factory. She was a widow and lived with her two children in a room and kitchen without a bathroom. The property was owned by a foundation that helped single mothers. She was highly dependent on charity for a decent life.
Today, we at Marholmen have started the Family Time project where we give away stays to families who would not otherwise have the financial means to go on vacation.
During your stay with us, book some time for yourself in the form of a spa entrance with light therapy.Read more or book here
