CABIN 1 - BLEKINGE
Sleeps 5 in two separate rooms (1 Queen bed, 1 Double, 1 Twin)
Cabin 1 was the first cabin built by the Swedish American Patriotic League. Albin Samuelson was Vice President of the League in 1926 and 1927. He put up $500 of the building cost and asked for matching funds which were provided by Carl Friden, the famous calculator inventor. The cabin has been enlarged and improved several times since its construction in 1926. The large back porch was added in 1963. The cabin has the advantage of a great location for keeping track of the comings and goings of Sveadal visitors. The cabin rented for $15 a week in 1927.
CABIN 2 - SMALAND
Sleeps 5 in two separate rooms (2 Double beds, 1 Queen)
Cabin 2 is one of the small cottages that came with the property. In 1932, it was set aside for the free use of the Swedish Relief Society. The porch was added in May 1945. The cabin rented for $10 a week in 1927.
CABIN 3 - SKANE
Sleeps 5 in two separate rooms (1 Queen bed , 1 Double, 1 Twin)
Cabin 3 was also part of the original purchase and served, as did Cabin #2, for renters and guests. Cabins 2, 3, & 4 all shared a privy which was located near the present barbecue area. The cabin was dramatically renovated by Bernard Wiklander in 1974 when he started to just replace a few timbers and ended up re-doing the entire cabin. It rented for $7 a week in 1927.
CABIN 7 - JAMTLAND
Sleeps 6 (2 Queen beds, each in separate rooms , 2 Twin beds in another room)
In 1932, two kitchens were added to the building and the cabin converted into two rental units, 7-A and 7-B and dubbed the “Honeymoon Cabin” because of the audible coziness that two families shared. In 1955, the cabin was again renovated into one modern unit.
CABIN 8 - HALLAND
Sleeps 5 in one room (1 Queen Bed, 1 Double, 1 Twin)
This cabin was part of the original farm buildings. It was used for storage. There was a chicken coop just behind it toward the creek. The cabin was used as a store by our neighbor, “Farmer” Howe. Mrs. Howe used to take orders for groceries and milk, which Howe would pick up in town. The large window facing the road was a wooden drop-leaf affair and it opened up onto a counter. There was also a gasoline pump next to the cabin just in front of the small shed. The shed was built in 1927 to house the new generator purchased after the one in Cabin 4 failed to keep up with the needs of the community. A shower was added to the cabin in May 1945.
CABIN 9 - NORRLAND
Sleeps 5 in one room (2 Queen beds, 1 Double)
Cabin 9 was part of Cabin 8 and served as a tool shed for many years. In 1970, it was renovated into a separate unit.
THE APARTMENTS (A1-A4)
Sleeps 5 in one room. Beds and Kitchen area in the same room (2 Queen beds & 1 Double bed). 1A & 2A connect. 3A & 4A connect.
Apartment 1: Gotland
Apartment 2: Sodermanland
Apartment 3: Bohuslan
Apartment 4: Halsingland
This building was originally built as a dormitory by the League in 1929 at a total cost of $1,826.19. The apartments are ideal for families wanting to be together in a large open space. The cabins are connected either by a dividing door or shared decks. They are set in the trees and are within close proximity to the Clubhouse.
Reserving A Cabin
In most cases, people sign up for a cabin in the rental cabins book in the summertime before they leave Sveadal. A renter cannot initially reserve a cabin (or a combination of cabins) for more than a total of 3 weeks. However, after April 1st, a renter can book additional time depending on cabin availability.
Members Have Priority
Priority goes to whomever rented that cabin the same week the previous summer, except that members do have priority over non-members in most cases. However, members cannot bump non-members after January 15th.
Any cancellation of a reservation must be made 6 weeks prior to the rental date in order to ensure that the deposit will be refunded. If we receive a shorter notice of cancellation, the deposit will only be refunded if we are able to again rent the unit for that reserved time.
Short-stay reservation policy
Sign-ups for short-stay rental cabin reservations start April 1. Remember to contact Sveadal (408-779-2854) regarding a reservation after June 15th, as all of the rental information will be at the pool shack at Sveadal.
Members: $100 per night plus $70 cleaning fee.
Non-Members: $135 per night plus $70 cleaning fee.
Short-stay reservations will not be confirmed until 30 days prior to your reservation date. Length of stay will take priority. If equal length of time, member has priority over non-member. If both are members or both non-members, priority goes to whomever signed up first. By extending the length of stay, one’s priority can be increased. Short stays do NOT give you priority for that time the following year.
Sveadal has a strict policy regarding the use of barbecues. Lighter fluid, starting blocks and newspaper chimney starters are prohibited. “Match Light” and similar briquettes are also prohibited. Please use standard charcoal briquettes and the electric starter provided in each cabin.
There is a phone on the wall behind the clubhouse where you can make calls with a prepaid phone card. It can also be used for 911 calls. Verizon and AT&T cellular service work in some areas of Sveadal.
Pets are not allowed while renting in Sveadal.
