Länsmansgården or Ulfsby Manor, the original name, has a long history. It became the residence of the county sheriff by order of Queen Kristina as early as the 17th century.

During the 19th century the sheriff who lived here inspired Selma Lagerlöf to create the fictional character Scharling in the novel ‘Gösta Berling’s Saga’. And it was here that the major’s wife from Ekeby Manor, a central figure in the novel, was imprisoned.

Due to the widespread popularity of Selma Lagerlöf’s writing, Ulsfby Manor is now known throughout Sweden as Länsmansgården, the home of the ‘länsman’ or county sheriff.  

The peaceful countryside by the shores of Lake Fryken in the heart of the county of Värmland is perhaps one of the reasons why Länsmansgården has attracted so many guests through the years. Other reasons could be the excellent food and the friendly reception that Värmland has always been famous for. Guests from far and near have always been welcome to the manor.
