Rustic log cabin in the Krivoklat Forest just 45 minutes drive west of Prague (50km). Tucked into the woods, but not far from a village pub (2km) or a beautiful swimming pond (200m). Great base for biking, hiking & sightseeing.
Log cabin in the Krivoklat Forest about 30 minutes drive west of Prague (50km). Tucked into the woods, but not far from a village pub either (2km up the hill) or a beautiful swimming pond (200m down the hill). Great mountain biking, hiking and mushroom hunting. Near Krivoklat and other notable castles. Halfway between Prague and Plzen (if you really need to get back to a city). A great vacation in the summer and a cozy getaway in the winter.
Water: you have to bring it from a well about 1km away. There is no plumbing and no running water at the cabin.
Bathroom/Toilet: There is a dry latrine (a hole in the ground with a small house on top) for a toilet. For washing yourself and dishes, you have to use water brought from home or from the well (1 km down the road - best to go by car). We have 2 large 20 liter canisters for carrying and storing water.
There is electricity and very weak mobile/GSM signal.
Spiders: This is a weekend cabin in the woods. Spiders live there. Don't be surprised.
Heat: Wood stove, fireplace, 1 electric space heater.
Cooking: Fire pit outside, simple covered bar-b-que (outside), hot plate & electric kettle (inside)
Terrain: The cabin is on a steep, wooded hill. It is pretty and secluded, but not recommended for children under 8 years old. There is not a lot of space to run around.
Bedding & towels: I try to keep clean linen there, but it is not always possible. If you require 100% newly laundered bedding, please bring your own.
The cabin has a simple, rustic and well-planned interior - like a sailboat where every nook has a function (sunken food cupboard and beer cellar under the stair case, meat-smoking chamber in the fireplace, washing bowl hidden in a drawer, etc.)
All spaces are wood paneled, floors and ceilings (some stone around fireplace and between kitchen and living room).
1. entry hall (1m2) 2 closets and a small space to throw your shoes.
2. Living room/dining room (5m x 6m) Big fireplace, 2m long dining/working table, folding couch, carpet, 2 windows.
3. kitchen (2m x 2m), wood stove (main heat source), counter space, hot plate and kettle, sink (but no water :).
4. Main bedroom (3m x 3m): 2 twin beds stuck together.
5. 2nd bedroom (4m x 5m): 2 separate twin beds, small refrigerator (1m tall), 2 small storage spaces (1m x2m, sloped ceilings)
6. Attic: (7m x 6m) accessible by ladder, sloped ceiling/roof)
All cooking & cleaning equipment (pots, pans, plates, glasses, broom, vacuum).
Guitar (Spanish acoustic)
Axe (for splitting wood)
Interaction with guests
I will give you a 30m orientation around the house and local area (how to get water, how to deal with electricity, where to find key equipment). Available for any other questions by phone/SMS.
Don't burn it down, please :).
