Interaction with Guests
My family also live in the house. But the family area is far enough to keep the privacy and close enough to help guests anytime.
We respect our guests privacy but at the same time we are always open to connect with guests. We sometimes have meals together, do the barbecue when the weather's nice, go for a walk together when the guests are up for it.
My father is a calligraphist and all the guests are welcome to give it a go for calligraphy practice.
The house is in a very quiet area 10~15 minutes walking distace from the bus stop.
But the road to the bus stop is right in the middle of the rice field and very pleasant to walk on.

Other Things to Note
We have a Korean style futon which we lay on the floor. I usually put 2 or more together for those who are worried about feeling the floor. All room are with underfloor heating.
Please help keep the place quiet and peaceful after 10:00 pm.
We were picked up promptly and had a short ride to the Hanok. The host family was very kind and showed us to our very comfortable room. The evening korean meal was delicious and we had a great night's sleep. Breakfast was simple and satisfying and we enjoyed a quick morning walk around the area. It was a great stay with a very nice family. We highly recommend this experience!
I highly recommend staying at this Hanok guest house if you're looking for a place close to the airport or even if you just want to experience life in a traditional Korean setting. The hosts were phenomenal- so warm, welcoming, and informative. I learned about Hanok architecture and philosophy during my ride from the airport to the guest house :) The Korean homemade dinner was beyond my expectations (definitely worth the 10,000won) and the breakfast was beautifully prepared. I appreciated all the aesthetic details during my stay: the handwritten thank you card, the hot tea, the warm room, the beautiful scenary especially early in the morning, and the scent of wood. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you will get + fresh air. The hosts provide all the necessary amenities. I hope to visit again soon :) Thanks Anna and family. xo
Anna is a really warm and welcoming host, which reflects on her hanok too. Comfortable and relaxing for a short stay, I am already missing the place so much! Basic amenities like towels and toiletries are provided, heating on the floor works really nice too in this cold weather. Overall, it was a great relaxing stay.
I had some problems with my phone so Anna was eagerly trying to help, which I really appreciate so much! Thank you Anna! It was really nice to talk to you and your family is really cute.
I would definitely come back again. :)
I stayed in Korea for 1.5 wks and have stayed in 4 different locations, I've got to say that my stay at Hanok was the best experience out of my Korea trip! From the historical home, the peaceful/serene environment, the best Korean food I had on my trip, to the great company.
Anna's family is so hospitable! I felt so comfortable at their home and I feel like they've gone out of their way for me. I think that everyone making a visit to Korea should definitely stay here!
Best time ever!! Anna and her family are the lovliest warm people! We loved every momentbin the huose and wished we could have stayed longer!! Her mom is a 5star cook!! Best food i had in korea! And being vegeterian she made it especially for us!
We can not recomend anna's place more :) we really hope to go back and visit...
Perfect korean othantic expiriance
I stayed here on a long layover. This place is amazing. The hosts made a delicious vegetarian feast for dinner that surpassed all of my expectations. The ride to and from the airport made everything seamless. The house itself and the surrounding area are nothing but beautiful... This is the perfect way to spend a layover if you have one in Incheon.
I had a wonderful albeit brief stay with Anna and her family. She was very patient and hospitable leading up to my stay as we exchanged several emails. When a friend of mine who I had wanted to meet during my layover was lost, Anna and her mother offered to pick her up from the airport when she was lost trying to get to the hanok. She also kindly included my friend and I in dinner plans at the last minute and dinner was absolutely sumptuous. The room was clean and tidy and the floor (the single room) was heated with electricity although the other rooms had ondel heating. It kept me warm during a cold night. Every amenity is provided for and the rooms and heated well which makes the stay very comfortable. There is a breakfast room which is styled like a cafe where guests can take and leave behind messages and polaroid pictures of themselves. There is also a cosy sitting place next to it which is cushioned and looks out to the garden, it was perfect for my quiet time in the morning. There is more to see and areas to relax but my stay was too short to try them. It really does feel like you are family guest: Anna picked me up and organised my stay, her mother drove, her father greeted us and kindly carried my bags to the living room, and her husband Gerard gave us a tour of the hanok. I will certainly stay there again with the mind of seeking refuge from the city with a warm family.
