The Hotel

Finnøy Sea Cottages – an old trading station with hosting traditions

Finnøy Sea Cottages is located on an island with a narrow land bridge, in the rooms of the old trading station and fish reception on Finnøy. Here we offer overnight stay, restaurant, modern meeting rooms, pub and summer shop. Plus the unbelievable aqualand Håp i havet (Hope in the Sea).
The hotel has 46 double rooms and 4 large family rooms. You are sincerely welcome!

Vi på Finnøy Havstuer har lang erfaring med tilrettelegging for flere typer arrangement. Skreddersøm er et sentralt begrep når vi skal designe et arrangement for våre kurs / konferanse og bedriftskunder. Det vil sjelden eller aldri være mulig å legge "blåpapir" på tidligere gjennomførte arrangement.

Som godt vertskap ønsker vi å gi en god opplevelse og trivsel hos oss.

Vi har gode samarbeidspartnere som leverer kvalitetsikret transport og andre tjenester som underholdning og forelesere

From grazing land to important trading and production location

Finnøy is located north of Harøy and is connected with road and bridge. Finnøy is a small, rustic island with some 100 permanent residents. Initially, farmers from Sandøy used Finnøy for grazing. Only in 1868 the island became settled.

Later, the trading station and fish production developed. Finnøy had a good location for landing and onward transport of fish and therefore became a shipping centre.

In old times the rooms of Finnøy Sea Cottages were used for production of dried cod and salting herring, they also housed a ship-chandler.

Maybe Finnøy initially became known for the "Finnøy engine", the first combustion engine made for use in fishing boats. Nils N. Finnøy built his first fishing boat engine in 1902 for Andreas H. and Andreas Eivindsen Finnøy. This became the first Norwegian built engine for the fishing fleet. Nils N. Finnøy was decorated with the Royal Medal of Merit in silver on his 70th anniversary 28 November 1935.

Finnøy Motor to-day manufactures gears and propellers.
