Alshuset Bed & Breakfast... History

We know that the house was built around 1750, and that the first known owner was a ferryman from Fynshav named Andreas Petersen Schmidt. He bought the house in 1798. It remained in the same family for 100 years, and in 1906 was sold to a joiner from the nearby village of Helved.

He sold the house in 1919 to a widow from Kiel. It was used as a summer holiday home for the next 90 years by several generations of this same family.

In 2007 the house's inheritors decided to sell, and I was lucky enough to be able to buy it. By way of a thankyou, it has been restored and refurbished with loving care - and with respect for both the house's and the area's traditions.

Alshuset was originally a single-family, low-income home. It was built from sun-dried bricks, and had a thatched roof.
