In a lifetime Gylla conjured Birgitte Larsen, popularly just Gylla, with a firm hand and love, the most wonderful food…

For a lifetime, Gylla Birgitte Larsen, popularly just Gylla, with a firm hand and love, conjured up the most wonderful food on the old stove, which was heated with firewood and which still adorns the kitchen, where electric machines never got a place.

The oldest part of the building set is from 1763. The buildings have throughout the ages been used for various purposes, a transition as a poorhouse.

The oldest sign of a hotel or rather pub is from 1781, when pub owner Peder Olsen acquired part of the property.
After a fire in 1845, the property was rebuilt in its current form and was then used for housing, grocery shopping and a grocery store.

In 1923, the property was taken over by Christian Peter Larsen (Gylla's father) who, together with his wife Fanny Elfrida Larsen, ran the hotel until the late 40s, when he passed away. The hotel was then run by his widow and daughter Gylla.

Fanny died in 1979 and then Gylla continued to run the hotel alone until quite a few years before her death in October 2013.

Gylla was born in 1925 and was thus 88 years old.

Now, in the deepest respect of the proud traditions that the Larsen family and in particular Gylla have created, we want to create new life in these magnificent and unique surroundings.

The name is therefore a relic from ancient times, which we want to keep, but you should not fear many other visitors, noise or a stressed staff. Today, Hotel Møen is run as a Bed & Breakfast and restaurant.
