Provstgaards Jagthus is beautifully located at Skjern Å and Pumpestation Nord.
The small house was built in 1922 by the brothers Niels Provstgaard and Søren Kristian Jensen, Ringkøbing-Skjern Museum bought the house in 1993. The two brothers lived of nature around them. Among other things they sold fish and went in search of otters - the house is characterized by them and their lifestyle. Niels Provstgaard, a carpenter, built things when the brothers needed them, such as the exhibition cabinets for his beautiful collection of birds. The brothers were, in many ways, pioneers and received telephone, radio and motorboats as some of the first in the area.
The house underwent a major renovation in 2018 and it is now ready to accommodate guests in the cozy old living rooms.
