About this listing
Room has a beautiful view on the garden and Bled Castle. Beside the room is big and luxurious bathroom with shower and bath. In the morning singing birds will wake you up and warm summer air will blow the sound of crickets chirping in the night.
“Bajtica”, a chalet built 1905, offers the classical “Vienna style” vacation in its surroundings of the 19th Century summer villas built once with the aim to provide families a secluded summer retreat. Situated in a center of Bled but in a most peacefull area, fully equiped and very comfortable.
Slovenia has only one island but its uniqueness makes it more attractive than many an archipelago. Sheltered by picturesque mountains, the island reigns in the middle of an Alpine lake. Its charm has made it a symbol for centuries of a town to which guests from all over the world love to return. This town, which has already existed for a thousand years, is BLED.
On the island in the middle of the lake, the ancient Slavs worshipped Živa, goddess of love and fertility. Pilgrims later came to the church of St Mary on the island. A thousand years ago, on 10 April 1004, the town of Bled was mentioned for the first time when the Holy German emperor, Henry II, gifted it to the Bishop of Brixen. At that distant time, a Roman tower already stood at the top of the cliff rising vertically 100 m above the lake, and it still forms part of the mighty castle that now houses a museum collection. The town flourished in the Middle Ages due to pilgrims, and these were replaced in the 19th century by the first tourists. The Swiss hydropathist, Arnold Rikli, discovered that the gentle climate and the lake and thermal waters are a source of good health and well-being. The local people supplemented the health spa offer with guest houses and hotels.
The town, already famous at the beginning of the 20th century as the most beautiful health spa of the then Austrian empire, attracted the European aristocratic elite. After WWII, one of the most attractive state residences of the former regime was located in Bled. Many of the world’s most important people thus enjoyed the beauties of Bled. And now, for decades already, the pilgrims of the new age have been discovering this town.

We had a great experience staying with AnaMarija and her family. The room and home were very clean, in great condition, and in a nice location close to the lake. We also loved the outside reading/relaxation area- perfect for a nice break after a day out adventuring.
Our favorite part was spending time with AnaMarija and her family. They were so welcoming and friendly to us. We loved getting to know them and learning a little bit more about Slovenia.
We definitely recommend visiting Lake Bled, and if you visit, staying with AnaMarija in her perfect guesthouse!!
What a beautiful experience it was with AnaMarija! We came on Monday morning and were welcomed by her and her daughter, had lovely coffee and chat in the garden pavilion. The room breathed with fresh air and it was beautifuly furnished. The bathroom was full of light, fresh air and beautiful scents. The neighborhood is full of gorgeous villas like AnaMarija's, the walk to the lakeshore is less than 10 min with restaurants, cafés and bus station and shops along. After each trip we gladly returned to the house and our room, where our hosts closed the shades for us. We had great talk together the last evening and gorgeous breakfast the very last morning, thanks a lot. We stayed just a few days and didn't use the hosts offer for guided walks (botanical was especially tempting) or massages but we believe it would be special. The garden, decorated by AnaMarija, is inviting for reading or just relaxing. Altogether, we would like to thanks AnaMarija for the beautiful 5 days, we recommend the place very much and we hope to return in the future to the enchanting lake Bled and surroundings.
We recently stayed in the Bajtica guesthouse with AnaMarija and from start to finish had an extremely relaxing and enjoyable time. During our stay for 4 nights we were looked after and treated as you would expect when staying with an old friend, every moment exceeding our expectations!
Upon arrival, we were treated to iced tea and invited into 'the living room', a lovely shaded spot in the stunning gardens, where we would spend some great times during the course of our stay having long and interesting discussions with Ana and her daughter Meta.
The room, bathroom, surroundings and the house are an absolute pleasure to visit and everything has been lovingly tended to create what is a beautiful and relaxing environment.
Throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble, being welcomed home from an evening meal with a glass of wine, provided with bikes to explore the town and lake, and being given great pieces of advice and context about the local surroundings, businesses and history.
Thank you so much to AnaMarija and Meta for making our stay so interesting and comfortable, we loved Slovenia and will be sure to come and see you when we make it back!

Our hostess was very helpful. I had a slight medical problem and she both pointed us to the pharmacy and provided me with tea and offers of other help. She is a very kind person who grew up in Bled, so she knows a lot about its history and politics, which interest us. It is a peaceful location where you can just snuggle in and enjoy the birds singing even on a rainy day. It is comfortable, not fancy in any way.
I stayed at Bajtica Guest House recently for 3 nights recently. I was made feel very welcome and enjoyed my stay. AnaMarija was very welcoming and also very forthcoming with suggestions of where to visit etc.. The guest house is within 5 mins walking distance of the lake and it's a very enjoyable walk too. I've got to say I really enjoyed AnaMarija's home made juices (Lemon - and something else which she served fro breakfast which was home grown and made was very refreshing). All in all a very enjoyable stay, many thanks! Barry
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place. The house and the garden are so unique. AnaMarija and Meta are the best hosts you can imagine! They give you so much helpful tips and interesting information about the history of this lovely place. Dear AnaMarija and Meta we enjoyed the inspiring conversations with you.
We definitely recommend Bajtica Guesthouse to all our friends and want to come back soon!
Our first experience with an Airbnb stay and we couldn't have asked for anything better! The Bajtica Guesthouse is perfect, with all the charm and character you would expect out of a 110 year home. You can tell the house is treated with love; every corner is full of fascinating antiques. AnaMarija's taste is impeccable.
It was rough getting to Bled, everything that could go wrong did. It was a very long 26 hours that culminated with us arriving safely with no luggage. But as soon as we arrived at Bajtica our stress melted away. It felt like home. The neighborhood is simply magical and just a short walk from the lake.
AnaMarija's energy is amazing, peaceful and content; she immediately helped us with the luggage by contacting the airport and setting up the delivery for the following day. She even gave my husband a sweater so he didn't have to walk around in the cold without one t say goodbye. We really hope we get to see you other again!
