IN 1987 FINNESAND / KLOSTER AREA WAS REGULATED AGAIN AND JOSTEIN FINNESAND WENT TO THE ARCHITECTURE COMPANY “SKAGEN ARKITEKT”, WHICH WAS THE COMPANY ASSIGNED TO REGULATE THE AREA.

JOSTEIN FINNESAND HAD A DREAM THAT A HOTEL WOULD BRING LIFE BACK TO THE LITTLE AREA FINNESAND. HE MANAGED TO RE-REGULATE OLD FINNESAND PORT FOR COMMERCIAL PURPOSES, AND HE THEN SAW A PERFECT LOCATION FOR THE NEW HOTEL. JUST NEXT TO THE OLD BRIDGE AN OLD HORTICULTURE WAS GOING TO BE TORN DOWN. THIS WAS FOR THE NEW TAVERN.

JOSTEIN WENT TO ANNE LISE FINNESAND, ODD JAKOB FINNESAND AND JOSTEIN REIANES TO GET HELP TO BUILD THE TAVERN. THE TAVERN WAS OPENED IN 1993. ALL MATERIALS FROM THE HORTICULTURE WERE DRIED AND RECYCLED IN THE BUILDING OF THE TAVERN.

WHEN THE TAVERN WAS IN OPERATION THEY WANTED TO EXPAND AND MAKE IT MORE SPECIAL. THEY WENT TO ARNE JOAKIMSEN, FOR HIS KNOWLEDGE IN RESTAURANT OPERATION, AND OTTAR FINNESAND, AS AN AID TO BUILD THE ROCK PIER.

AFTER A FEW YEARS ANNE LISE SOLD OUT AND HELGE SØRHEIM JOINED. AFTER THIS THE TAVERN EXPANDED DURING SEVERAL PERIODS AND IT WAS RELAUNCHED AS A HOTEL. 

NOW IN THE RECENT YEARS CATO ØSTERHUS BOUGHT SHARES IN THE HOTEL, AND IN THE END OF 2019 HE BOUGHT ALL OFF ARNE JOAKIMSENS SHARES AND BECAME THE MAIN SHAREHOLDER. AFTER CATO BOUGHT IN HE STARTED WITH HUGE DEVELOPMENT PLANS WITH THE REST OF THE OWNERS. IN NOVEMBER 2019 THE RENOVATION STARTED AND THE HOTEL IT SET TO RELAUNCH ALL NEW IN 2020.
