Discover the Charm of an Old Cottage in Zakopane

Welcome to the Old Cottage – a charming corner where tradition meets comfort, creating perfect conditions for a group of up to 12 people wishing to experience the true atmosphere of the Podhale region. This historic house offers an authentic Podhale climate, but also modern conveniences.

The house spreads over two cozy floors. On the ground floor, there is a spacious room that serves as a living room – a place for meetings, conversations, and rest after a day full of impressions. Another room, equally spacious, serves as a fully equipped kitchen, where you can prepare meals for the whole group, but also eat together. There are five bedrooms on the first floor.

Guests of the Old Cottage can also enjoy the charming porch and well-kept garden, which invite you to relax in the fresh air. It is here, surrounded by mountain nature, that you can light a barbecue and enjoy moments together with family or friends.

Learn about the history of the Old Cottage

The Old Cottage is a beautiful example of traditional Podhale residential construction. It was built without the use of nails from pitch (spruce) high mountain timber sawn into 18 cm wide beams called amphibians. The amphibians on the knots (corners) were joined to form a lock. This is known as log construction. The gaps between the amphibians were woven with woollen cloth. These are thinly planed shavings woven into braids and firmly beaten. Earlier, however, the amphibians were sealed with moss. This process was called „mossing” and the expert , „mechanical optician”.

Originally, the hut was covered with shingles – boards split along the grain. The Old Cottage has a traditional two-room layout: Black Chamber and White Chamber separated by a hallway.

In the Black Chamber, where daily life took place, was the only stove (there are traces of a chimney opening on the fascia). The eave of this chamber is supported by a beautifully carved beam, called a pine beam. On the sosreb on the side of the window is an engraved rosette with the date of construction 1933. Currently, the Black Chamber houses the kitchen and dining room for guests.

The White Chamber has a living room-sleeping room. The White Chamber had a festive character. Valuables were stored there. In the past, from the vestibule a ladder was used to enter the attic, where halves of pork fat hung from the ceiling, and grain was stored in a box called „ssiek” (sąsiek). At present, the stairs are used to access the first floor with bedrooms. The cottage is electrically heated. Even when there are severe frosts, it is warm and cozy inside.

Polecam. Miejsce znajduje się w dobrej lokalizacji. Bogate wyposażenie (ekspres, grill elektryczny), miejsce na grilla oraz przestronne pokoje rekompensują brak piekarnika i nieco cienkie ściany. Piekarnia znajduje się tuż obok, do pobliskiego Netto jest 3-4 minuty pieszo.
