In the old farmhouse, which over the history has been the home of the farm owners, you will find 14 large guest rooms. The rooms are all decorated separately with respect for the characteristics and history of the single room. Several rooms have ocean view, and from the farmhouse is admission to the garden and the lovely back porch. Ten of the rooms were built in 2005. In 2012, another three rooms were added, and in 2015, the iconic Benniksgaard Super Suite opened.
Renovation with respect for history
The farmhouse is a listed building, which dates back to 1782 (the original building burnt down years before). The farmhouse has always been private residence. However, in 2004, the Danish Agency for Culture allowed Owner Mads Friis to turn the farmhouse into hotel guest rooms, provided that the renovation would be in respect of the original records from the 1600s, i.e. restoring the thatch and more.
The farmhouse was renovated as requested. The result turned out perfectly, which in 2005 awarded the farmhouse a prize for a "gentle and beautiful" renovation by the Danish Agency for Culture and the local municipality.
On the 24th of July 2005, the farmhouse was consecrated by HRH Prince Henrik. One of the suites is today named after the Prince, and over the years another nine rooms have been named after a Danish royalty.
