Cottage right by the Orava dam. It is part of Slovak cultural heritage and thus protected. Fishing, swimming, boating, horse riding, hiking or just relaxing under the trees with the view of "Birds island" with more then 2000 birds or "Slanica island" with a gallery on it. 3 big bedrooms, modern bath room and a big living room with typical + modern kitchin to cook. The house is 100 years old - it is cozy, freshly reconstructed and well maintained & equiped - but please do not expect 5* hotel :)
