Fredrik Birch

Our History

Fredrik Birch b. in Trondheim 1826 bought the property “Havernesset” in Selbu from
Thomas Nielsen Bell. Birch opened his general store there, the first in the area

before 1860. In addition to the store, his business was extended to include a bakery and a post-office as well as production-, and sales of, millstones.

Fredrik Birch was also a clever farmer, he was the first in our district to import timothy and fertilizers. His son Paul Birch continued the business from 1898 until 1915 when he sold the property to the tuberculosis organization in Selbu. After a considerable extension of the building, they established a sanatorium on the site. From early 1950’s until 1987 the property served as home for elderly people as well as health centre under the direction of the local women volunteer organization for health care services, the local authorities of Selbu and Sør-Trøndelag county council.
When the new Selbu Healthcare Centre came into use in 1987 and following considerable rebuilding and renovation of the buildings, Selbusjøen Hotell & Gjestegård  could welcome their first guests in 1988.The hotel, as you can see it today, was completed after further extensions in 1996-1997 and the spring of 1998. Selbusjøen Hotell & Gjestegård has 58 rooms, 116 beds, 6 conference rooms, lounges bar, and a spacious out-door area for several kinds of activities summer and winter.
