The house is very well placed, big parking lot, nice garden, very quiet, beautiful surroundings. Inside its very clean, properly maintained, beautiful fireplace, enough space in every room. I would like to go again to this host in the future. One problem, tough. In the description doesn't say anything about the sauna. There are pictures available but it does NOT say that this sauna it's available only once IF you stay at least 5 nights there. If you don't, you will be charged extra. I think this must be writen into description.

Lovely location in the middle of the Forrest. Great cottage for a big group of people and good value for money. I stayed with a group of 10 friends and we went skiing to Strbskie Pleso almost every day as it's only short drive away. Cottage has a fireplace and it's nice and cozy. Every room has on suite bathroom which was hugely convenient as we all could shower and get ready in the same time rather than queuing for the bathroom Sonia was very responsive to all our requests and helped to make our stay extra special arranging a horse carriage ride for us
