A One-of-a-Kind, Traditional Scandinavian Experience


Punzel Scandinavian   

In the time of long ago, Lodespar Mountain pushed forth to form the western edge of a timeless land known as the Tidendal Valley. Magnificent pines and hardwoods grew, pure streams formed pristine ponds, and the animals, birds, and ancient people reveled in nature’s beauty. Thus began the enchanted saga that surrounds the present home of Punzel’s Cottage, Lodespar Mountain, and the “fictional” Tidendal Valley (Forest) is located south of Traverse City, MI.

Punzel’s Mission   

Punzel’s Cottage and nearby mystical communities have grown throughout the last 34 years. Thousands have entered the cottage and walked the pathways. We would like to share Judy’s imaginary characters, through stories and drawings, photographs from her real-life homestead, recipes, and products she has designed with those who have not visited, and keep in touch with those who have.


Please know that every product is original in design and created from sustainable harvest, be it wood or fabric. Every item has a story, a link with a rich Nordic heritage, and a presence that defines its uniqueness.
