The Space

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 (1/2km 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.

While there is no running water, there is electricity. Very weak mobile/GSM signal.

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.

The interior:
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).

ground floor:
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 :).

1st floor:
4. Main bedroom (3m x 3m): 2 twin beds stuck together, old TV (no reception, only SCART connection (I have not figured out how to hook up my computer to it yet).
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)
