Skeviks History

Skeviks Gård has an exciting history with roots all the way back to 15th century, at that time a farmer named Peder manage the farm with animals and vegetable cultivation. 

After that, a sect called Skevikarna lived here and Friluftsfrämjandet ran a place for movement and exercise until the beginning of the 80´s when the facility got it’s first hotel room.

Today the farm is managed as a hotel and conference facility where guests can experience the whole history, both with self-sustaining agriculture, movement and exercise as well as encounters between people.

  • Skevik during 1500-1800 century

    Our history begins in 1535 with a farmer namned Peder who lived at Skeviks Gård. Over the years, it has passed religiously separatists “Skevikarna”, poverty and outdoor promoters. Around “Skevikarna”, some legendary formation has arisen. Among other things, they said that they used to have meetings and silent meditate in Skeviks cave, a large mountain slope a few hundred meters from Skeviks Gård. Today, the cave is protected as a natural memory and has been used as a recording site in the movie “ The Seventh Sealed”. 

    Today, the vertical mountain wall is used extensively by rock climbers and we can offer our guests both boardwalks and torch trains there. After “Skevikarnas” period at Skeviks Gård, during 1700s and 1800s , there had been poverty and agriculture at the farm. 

  • Skevik during 1900 century 

    During the 1900 century, Skeviks Gård was own by KF and leased to the “Frilufsfrämjande” - outdoor promoters. For a number of decades, people from Stockholm went to Skevik for recreation and exercise. 

    We have our own hill where you could take the little lift up for a couple of quick turns in our ski slope. Older ladies and gentlemen's often visited us for some skiing and hot chocolate in this century! 

  • Skevik between 1983-2011
     
     

    In 1983, Kjell Nilsson acquired the farm of KF. The Nilsson family built hotel rooms and created meeting rooms in both existing buildings and new buildings arose. Many companies and organisations found Skeviks Gård and got the opportunity to experience meetings, educations, good food and recreation in this beautiful place. 

  • Skeviks Gård from 2012 until today - Authentic sustainable meetings

    The Flink family, who previously own and manage Hotel Blå Blom in Gustavsberg, purchased the entire Skeviks Gård through the real estate company Fling & Partners and also took over the entire operation of the hotel and conference facility. 

    The owners and management decided that Skeviks Gårds profile should rest on five cornerstones - Organic and local products, Exercise and movement, Archipelago environment, The hospitality and meeting between people. 

    A outdoor exercise facility was built, right down by the water and  it’s available all year around. Kayaks and bikes was purchased for guests to borrow and a training circuit on 2 kilometers was marked up around the farm. Here, the guests receive both movement, exercise and fresh air. Even beautiful views of both Skevik, the archipelago and Värmdö. 

    Cooperation was established with Stefan Eriksson - “Chef of the Year 2015” and his company Råvaran AB, to see what the future holds when it comes to development around the choice of organic and local food. 2014 around 600 square meters of vegetable cultivation was set up with a verity of vegetables. The first year, under the period July-October, 1 ton of vegetables was harvest. The guests at Skeviks Gård could now enjoy roots, various kinds of salads, different herbs, onions, bens, zucchini and pumpkins from the farms own growth. 

    During spring 2014, around 30 hens and three roosters moved in at the farm. The result was local eggs that could be used in different ways in our cooking. Sometimes for breakfast and other times in meals on our lunch and dinner menu.

    Two large hot tubes was purchased, accommodating 12 people in each. They was placed so that the guests can enjoy a delightful and beautiful view of Skeviken.

    Skeviks Gård has also a 100% organic wine list and 90% of the beer is from the local brewery Värmdö Brewery.

    Cooperation was established with several talented and reputable individuals and companies within training, health and movement. Among other, a collaborating with the skilled PT and health coach Mårten Nylén and the company Team Snabbare was linked. Our guests has now the opportunity to book good workouts and lectures with guidance.

    Summer of 2015 animals moved in at Skeviks Gård. The purpose of the animals was to create a biodynamic diversity with Swedish endangered farm animals that would live and breed at the farm. Of course, the meat that these animals yields would go to the kitchen at Skeviks Gård, more local products than that is hard to find. Among the animals that moved in, eight cows, calves and a bull was of the species “Rödkulla”, 15  “Klövsjö” sheeps, lambs and bocks and also four piglets of the species “Linderödssvin”. Nowdays, 2018, you will find our pigs and the hens all year around. During summertime you sometimes also meet bees, cows and lambs grassing our land.

    An indoor gym was established in the charming house Härbret. Here, you can find both exercise machines and strength machines for those who prefer indoor exercising. You can find three micro gyms adjacent to the three different living houses. In these micro gyms, you will find yoga mats, pilates balls, dumbbells, jumping ropes, kettlebells and balance boards. The purpose is to make the training even more accessible for our guests. You can borrow the gear into the nature or to your hotel room, whatever suits the moment or maybe the weather.

    Under 2015, kitchen and restaurants was completely renovated with a different and new look, and the restaurant was expanded. A grand opening to the kitchen was made together with a larger and more easily worked kitchen area. Which in return gives new opportunities to create fantastic food with amazing ingredients.

    Under 2016, some of the hotel rooms was renovated. 

     

  • Skeviks Gård in the future

    The desire to change and inspire is still growing. Our cornerstones - Organic and local products, Exercise and movement, Archipelago environment, The hospitality and meeting between people, stands strong.

    Skeviks Gård is and will remain a wonderful location for conferences, educations, business meetings, events, exercise and recreation, where people will come and experience authentic and sustainable meetings!
