The house is located 15 minutes (walking distance) away from the main road. Its surroundings are very quiet and peaceful but the accessibility to local shops or restaurants is not easy. But you can have real homemade Korean meal in Ogamul.
You can stroll around the little countryside road right in the middle of the rice field or also take a walk to the sea salt field nearby.
It takes about 25~30 minutes to go to the nearest seaside on foot.
Or you can just relax in the house. Hanok itself is like being in the nature.

So after a very long and exhausting (but fun!) trip in South East Asia I picked the Ogamul for a relaxing stay before the long flight home. It was an excellent choice. Anna, her husband Jarod and her parents were wonderful hosts. They made my one night stay easy and restful. They even included airport pick-up (at 7:30 am no less)!
This traditional and historical Korean home has been well restored and preserved by Anna's family, particularly her father. Though it maintains most of its original parts (including that amazing Ondol floor heating) it also has all the modern amenities that you need. The rooms are small, but comforting, and the common room area was a great place to catch up on some reading. The house itself manages to be both conveniently close to the airport, yet still right in the middle of a quiet forest. I would also highly suggest enjoying the traditional Korean meal. The vegetable ingredients are from the garden of Ogamul, and I thought it was delicious. Some of the best Kimchi I've had!
Thanks Anna! I had a wonderful time. :)
I was transiting through Korea for one night and stayed at Ogamul guest house. It's such a cute cozy traditional historical Korean house you will feel like your in Korean drama. With fire heated floorings, several dozen kimchi pots in the backyard, organic home made banchan, along side the rice paddies… Eventhough I was just transiting through Incheon airport stay at Ogamul made me feel I got a little taste of Korean countryside. And you've got stable wifi, a common room stocked with tea, spicy ramen noodles, snacks, books and games. It's a bit inconvenient because the shower's in a clean outhouse but that's another beauty of staying at Ogamul. Anna and her family are lovely. She picked me up and dropped me off at the airport too for a few extra bucks! You'll feel like you've come home to Ogamul because it's so cozy and cute.
A unique and peaceful experience, "Anna" and her family were most gracious hosts. Anna's English is exemplary, and she is eager to share beautiful stories about the home she obviously loves, its history, and its amenities. World traveled, Anna knows when to give a guest some space and when to engage in easy, interesting conversation.
I felt very safe walking alone in the area - a great way to catch a worthwhile glimpse of native rural life with city life just beyond.
The remarkable abode and setting are a family legacy that has garnered recent heartfelt attention. Her father and mother are bringing the place back to its glory, with Anna’s guest house as a complementary effort. Her father is artistically gifted, from the flowing pattern of his garden plantings and calligraphy to his beautiful carpentry and stonework restorations. Her mother displayed her artistry in the meal she prepared, which was a real highlight. Dinner was delicious, beautifully presented, interesting and included ingredients from their garden.
I was looking for a lifestyle experience, but I was glad Anna had already doubled the floor bedding for me. Guest rooms are individually heated with radiant heat from an ember pit system. The room was toasty, although the fall temperatures were beginning to dip to the low 50s. I am accustomed to New England mountain temps, and I assured her I did not need her father to stoke the pit outside which tunneled heat to my room floor. My one medium sized roll aboard suitcase and shoulder bag had ample space. I took a peek at the smaller available room. If you truly do not require much in the way of “stuff”, you would be comfortable in it, too.
The house is laid out in a series of buildings squared around a small courtyard. Family private quarters comprise one side. A separate building serves as a commons area with a microwave, large wooden table, and small breakfast nook with teas available until a reasonable 9 P.M. I did not option the breakfast because I departed earlier than I like to eat.
Two bathroom choices include one in the main commons area and one out my door, across the porch, and a few quick steps away. That small building was divided into separate male and female bathrooms/showers. The women’s bathroom was partitioned off, affording some privacy. I wouldn’t trade my waterlogged, post flight night trips to the lav around the porch for anything! Greeting the moon several times as it traveled the night sky made us old friends before morning! I was able to listen to the peaceful night sounds of the mountainside opening to rice fields below and breathe fresh air on each trip.
An early morning airport trip was no problem. (very timely, small fee, well worth it)
Ogamul is a treasured experience.
