After the death of mr Salicath his widow continued to live in the house.

Skovlyst was a small restaurant (beer garden) located at Kongevejen's (Københavnsvejen's) entrance to Hillerød at the edge of Præstevang. The restautant was located in an old house of a forester, which had also been the home of a forest supervisor. The beautiful thatched house burned down in 1915. Skovlyst was rebuilt as a inn, but closed in the 1950s and was later demolished. (New information added November 16th).
