A small hotel in our home
Welcome to Vaxholms Bed & Breakfast! A small hotel in our home, in Vaxholm’s older residential neighbourhoods. Just steps away from the waterfront and a few hundred meters from Vaxholm guest harbor, cafes, restaurants and archipelago boats.
We offer accommodation in two rooms on the ground floor of our 1930s villa. Both with private entrance from the street and a separate patio outside the door. For your comfort, we have made the beds for you before you arrive, and in the bathroom, you will find soap, shampoo, a hairdryer, towels, and other essentials.

The greenhouse and garden
In our quiet courtyard, behind the house you will find the Greenhouse. As guest at our B&B you are welcome to sit down in front of the fireplace, have a cup of coffee and relax. In the courtyard you will also find what might be Vaxholm’s smallest shop with trays, cutting boards, pillows and kitchen towels in our own Vaxholm inspired design and other hand picked favourites from the B&B rooms. The full assortment is also represented in our web shop.
Soup lunch in the garden café
Every now and then in the Autumn and Spring we open up the garden and greenhouse for soup lunches. On the meny is soup of the day with focaccia bread and dessert. All cooked and baked in our kitchen. In our calendar you will find the upcoming dates. You will also find more information in our social media.
The Greenhouse is open for conferences for groups up to 12 people from April until November, or as long as the temperature stays a couple of degrees above zero. When booking a conference you have the Greenhouse, garden, and courtyard all to yourselves. Read more.
During your visit
Join us in the boat
