The history of the hotel dates back to around 1780

As tourists began to travel across Krokskogen, the demand for hospitality and accommodation increased. In the past, there were coaching inns at Øvre Jonsrud in Lommedalen, at Midtskogen on Krokskogen, and at Sundvollen by Lake Tyrifjorden. Øvre Jonsrud had also served as an inn. Around 1807, Kleivstua was converted from a mountain pasture to a coaching station, coinciding with the rerouting of the road, which now descended down Sørkleiva. Kleivstua is beautifully situated at the top of Sørkleiva. When the road over Sollihøgda was completed around 1860, the coaching station at Øvre Jonsrud became redundant and was soon closed. Kleivstua continued its operation as a tourist hotel.
