The house at Sandbogaard was built by the Royal General Chamber of Costums in 1802 as a residence and stable for the keeper of the new lighthouse at Hammeren. In 1873, the lighthouse keeper’s residence was sold to ConsulKrebs. In 1876, the farm was bought by stonemason Julius Andersen. His son, Emil Julius Andersen, took over the property in 1914 and in about 1935 he and his wife, Ingrid, started a guest house. It remained in the Andersen family for many generations, but has subsequently been in various hands, until we bought it on the 1st of June, 2014.
Local rumor says, that some of the oldest buildings (Sandbogaard) in Sandvig are built from stone taken by farmers from the ruins of Hammershus castle.
