The history of Varghotellet (the Wolf hotel)

In the past, “Jon-Persa’s barn” was central in Järvsö, and was used, among other things, as a stable for the horse-borne visitors of the church. In the early 2000s, “Jon-Persa’s barn” was purchased, to be converted into today’s hotel. Floorboards from the old barn live on as tables on the hotel’s banquet floor.
