Modry Ganek

Translated automatically with Google Translate

The main role in this idyll is played by an old, former German farm located among the Dylewskie Hills in Western Masuria. Mentally, we are closer to the agritourism of Mrs. Grażynka - a housewife and Mr. Jozek - a farmer, rather than to luxurious ventures in the new trend. Because we are so Grażyna and Józek in the internet age. Although Grażynka once designed the interiors for a while, and Józek can cook quite well and have an aesthetic sense, but we are attracted by ordinariness, and our farm is living with the rhythm of animal husbandry. So you can meet the hay transport and nobody will refuse you if you want to unload them with us. The hosts will get up during the best even feasts to make evening rites for the animals, but they will not refuse to offer help in the morning cleaning of the stable. You will find a holiday with your grandma in the countryside, but you will not have to eat 3 more if you say that you have already eaten.
We grow vegetables in the sweat of the forehead, we bake bread ourselves, we do repairs alone, and even teach children alone. We like to be self-sufficient and we like to share what we have the best. We treat our guests as old friends and we welcome everyone as warmly as we know each other, whether we know each other for 20 years or just get to know each other. We like it very much.
We also like to inhale the air that is unchanged with civilization. We like to roam around our forest, where there are so many mysterious places, how many species of rare birds are here. We like our forest ravines, swift crests and lands. We like the ubiquitous traces of moose and the crane clangor at dawn. If you like it too, you like it great. It's enough for you.

Agnieszka i Marek Nowiccy

In the beginning was the Word. The word lived between us and we decided to change a large, comfortable house in Masurian wilderness and life in suburban mode, to an old, ruined farm in the forest and to live in the slow rhythm. We threw the credit, several hundred kilos of unnecessary things off our shoulders and moved to a caravan for half a year, along with a child, two cats and a dog and horses waiting outside the door of the trailer. In two and a half years we have dealt with a major refurbishment with a pocket budget and we have prepared a place to live on the ground floor and two apartments in the attic of the pre-war house. We know every board and every brick, because we did everything with our own hands. We have many ideas and no money for their implementation, but a lot of resourcefulness and creativity, so after a little we sculpt our place on earth, enjoying the freedom we have given us.

Where will I sleep?

We have prepared two comfortable rooms with the status of apartments, in the attic of our house. Attached to the attic is a separate entrance to the building, through the modular porch and steep, old stairs to the top. Because we always give our guests what we have the best, the rooms have left us somewhat... luxurious for a country cottage, but cozy. You can see in them a passion for beautiful objects and a personal finish.

Azure room decorated slightly oriental, with a southern window and a view of the pasture and forest.
- a double bed,
- two single beds "behind the catcher",
- a table with two chairs, a large dressing table,
- private bathroom with shower
- maximum number of souls per room is 4.

Sage room decorated in a "grandma's" style, with two windows and a view of the forest and our old orchard.
- a double bed,
- single, antique bed, slightly shorter (180 cm)
- a table with two chairs, a dressing-room,
- private bathroom with shower
- maximum number of souls in the room is 3.

Between the rooms there is a common kitchenette and a dining area, as well as something to read and several games.

From Mayday 2019 we give you a barn, where you can eat and chill, shelter from rain or heat.

What will I eat?

We like to eat, even everyday, and the most healthy. And we also like to cook. We are happy to feed you with what we have grown or what our neighbors have the best: eggs, fresh trout, butter, cheese. The cheapest way is to order full board with us, but we will also prepare you single meals according... to your rhythm.

We are guided by the principle that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why we give it truly royal. Planted eggs and elaborate scrambled eggs are the specialty of the Lord of the House. For this he was filmed with his personal bicep, bread and veggie paste from the housekeeper, his own jam and porridge or sweet millet. Children can get a Mickey Mouse omelette or scrambled eggs in butter. We serve homemade soup on our vegetables at lunchtime, somewhere in the meantime a sweet afternoon snack, and when the heat collects sate dinner. It can be vegetable tart, home-made dumplings, or baked trout from our Drwęca. Will go to the garden, prepared in the rhythm of words.

We cook in a standard manner, but we will easily adapt to vegetarians and vegans. Other diets (gluten-free, low-sugar, intolerance, etc.) are priced individually.

We do not make meat, but we can recommend to you where even the meat is made so that it is worth eating.

How will I be entertained?

If you want, we have the conditions for it. Not the best GSM range, an old orchard where micrograins and mesmerizing views of horses take place. You can soak your feet in an icy stream, stare at the birds in the orchard, swing in the clouds or on the hammock under the apple tree. You can do anything... if you like. For those who, however, like to do something and the most useful one, there will always be activities in the garden or on horses.

If, like us, you like to spend your holiday actively, we have several suggestions:
- walks in the saddle, for both riders and those who have never tried before,
- Nordic walking and unobvious walks through our forest, which must be explored cross-country and you can come across post-war ruins or a medieval stronghold, an elk or a black stork, and certainly streams and ravines, even thirty meters long.
- bicycle trips, especially to the Landscape Park of Dylewo Hills, which is also accessible by a bicycle trail. You can also drop into the battlefields of Grunwald and see some nice sights along the way. We can share our bikes with you and store yours under the roof.
- rafting on the surrounding rivers - Drwęca and Marózka. We have canoes, we'll organize it for you.

Masuria West is also famous for:
- sailing on the Ostródzko-Elbląski Canal, leading through unique ramps and sluice system.
- the pearls of the Western Masuria - Ostróda, which is worth visiting, not only during the Regee Festival. In summer, you can, for example, take a water ski on a special ski lift in the city center.
- Grunwald battlefields, on which, apart from the famous reconstruction of the battle of 1410, more worth visiting are the European Championships in Horse Archery, held on a picnic,
- hiking and biking trails in the Landscape Park of Dylewskie Hills with an observation tower on the highest elevation of northern Poland - Dylewska Góra (312 m above sea level),
- one of the largest open-air museums in Olsztynek, which organizes several large events in the regional and ecological climate, with handicraft fairs,
- glassworks in Olsztynek, where you can see the production and buy some nice trinkets,
- Landscape Park of the Iława Lake District.

What's for children?

For children, we have a holiday like grandma's. The guide in creative activities is our ten year old daughter Mariola, who will encourage brave schoolchildren to sleep in the hay, show how to build a dam on our stream or a hut in our juvenile.

Not accidentally, we also have ponies that like to carry...
children for walks in the woods. These can be walks with parents on their feet or with parents in the saddle. Children already riding can improve their skills with us, and those who have always wanted will have the opportunity to try.

In winter, adventures are waiting for children, such as a sleigh ride with dogs or a pony, skates on a track from a frozen stream or the best Masurian sledges on a sledge. In bad weather, we have board games and a place under the roof.

Because the house is old, wooden ceiling, and we live downstairs, we invite children over 6 years old.

How to get there?

Nawigacja prowadzi okrężną drogą, więc najłatwiej trafić, wpisując w nawigacji "Wróble" i 400 m za Wróblami (jadąc od Rychnowa), skręcić w żużlową, nieoznakowaną drogę między polami. Pięknymi pagórkami doprowadzi Was ona prosto do nas. Po dużych opadach lub roztopach dojazd może być utrudniony autem osobowym bez 4x4. Prosimy w takim okresie o kontakt w dniu przyjazdu, wskażemy Wam najlepszy dojazd.



great hosts, a lot of delicious food (despite the fact that the vegetarian is not me!), a great place for those seeking rest from stress and the city. We highly recommend it Agnieszka and Piotr


We have just returned and would like to come back. You can talk a lot, it's better to survive. We recommend definitely full board. We assure you, even those who like meat, will be full. I am an example of this. Place, surroundings and food will give you a lot of pleasure. We will go back there and recommend it with all our hearts :)


We were in Modry Ganku for 3 days in February and - despite the fact that winter spending options are limited - we were not bored for a moment either :-) This is a unique place on the slow-motion map. Everything that the hosts write about their philosophy and what they promise to their guests is confirmed with interest. It's a tasteful, warm, beautiful interior with even more beautiful people inside. We thank Marek and Agnieszka for their family atmosphere, flexibility in responding to non-standard needs of kids and interesting conversations. We will also remember having fun together and discovering the area with intrepid and ingenious Mania. It was great - we will definitely be back :-) PS. When booking apartments, keep in mind that both are located in one attic, they are connected by a charming and inviting kitchen to sit together, and the door to the rooms are asking to leave it open ... so - if you're traveling a larger group - definitely better to book the whole thing :-)


Great people, a wonderful place, wild nature, horses and kids; for this very nice interior, I recommend with a clean heart
