Sygard Grytting is an old farm estate, today functioning as a hostel. Coal pits, rich grave findings dating back to the 4th century, and Viking burial grounds suggests early settlement and powerful families living in the area. Today's owner Halvor Grytting is the 17th generation of the Grytting family running the farm. It has been in the Grytting family at least since 1534, but most likely longer and probably as far back as the 14th century.

In addition to the hotel, the farm has a medieval attic which is used as a hostel for pilgrims on their way to Nidaros – today as well as in late medieval times. The attic is listed and was built in 1300, with small modifications made in 1780. The attic has 20 beds. Pilgrims sleep in own sleeping bag together with the hostel's sheepskin rug (or rent linen).
