Villa Nature Lodge

Cosy and comfortable accommodation by the Bialowieza Forest, self-check-in, wi-fi

Nature Lodge is a luxurious wooden house built in the local style of Podlasie and situated in a charming village of Gruszki, at the very edge of the Bialowieza Forest and with a view of the Narewka River valley.

There are two apartments in the house: a small, 2-room apartment for 4 people and a large, 5-room apartment for 11 people, which can be rented together or separately.
The house was built on the basis of an old forester’s lodge from the nearby village of Łanczyno. Meant for deconstruction, it was saved and now the century old wooden logs visible inside create the atmosphere typical of old dwellings. The decision to make use of the old forester’s lodge influenced our choice of the size and spacing of windows on the ground floor and inspired us to make glassed porches so characteristic of Podlasie. We could not resist adding to the interior a few traditional stoves. Kitchens and bathrooms are comfortably equipped, the house is heated with a heat pump and has photovoltaics. Solutions for the house were carefully chosen according to the rules of sustainable development: oak floors are made from certified wood, walls were constructed from old logs and kitchen floors are covered with recycled roof tiles. The rooms are furnished with old furniture searched out at flea markets or made to order.
NOTE: We do not provide catering. Both apartments have well-equipped kitchens. There is also a restaurant 5 km from the Lodge.
