Staw Otwarty

Translated automatically with Google Translate

The place has been in our family for 20 years. Our auntie makes a party on her nameday there every year and in June mom listens to mating frogs with a glass of good wine and her best friends. Now we open it for you - a Mazury-like spot withing the boundaries of Warsaw. Everything you need to relax is here: there's nature, it's beautiful, and you don't even leave the capital.

We have no Wi-Fi and we are proud of it, and the network coverage is lacking. Don't get frustrated with your smartphone, just leave it in your bag. Ditch FOMO - just lie on the deck and take a good look at the clouds - or stars.

We want you to find the peace that brought us here. Recharge your batteries and keep the serenity with you when you get back to the hustle and bustle.

We've adapted our 100 year old log house to your needs. It's not big. It is just right. It is also all for you. We do not rent each room separately, because the place works only as a whole .

The neighbours and surrounding streets are hidden behind a wall of greenery and land (2 hectares), so very quickly you will feel inside a natural enclave.

Downstairs you will find a large, spacious living room with a fireplace, a sofa and two tables. There are doors leading to a veranda and deck over the lake. There's also a kitchen (almost like home, probably with a nicer view, due to the lake ;) and bathrooms, with a shower and 2 toilets. Upstairs there are two comfortable, intimate bedrooms. We do not have the newest furniture, we admit it straight out, a lot of equipment has its history, but it is certainly clean and cozy.

When you come out of the house to the deck ... you will probably stay there (almost) forever. Behind the corner there's a veranda with a large table - ideal for a dinner with friends - and a hammock for you to jump into when you want to chill out alone with your favorite book . There is also a quiet and picturesque spot for a bonfire with sausage sticks, a large table and long benches to sit at night and stare at the fire.

When you go for a walk around the lake, you will find:
* A flowering quince field
* A swing under an apple tree
* A small island with a drawbridge

Lila i Marek Cichy

We met on the course of SKPB, or ... walking in the mountains - and it continues to us, although our quiet dream of our own hostel is becoming more and more materialized ... 20 km from the Palace of Culture.

Come to us and rest, just.
A birdsong in the morning, and every now and then
A campfire ready for your marshmallows
Bring your kids, pets, friends and the like
Row row row our boat on a private 1.5 acre lake

Where will I sleep?

The most comfortable will be you upstairs, where we have prepared two cozy rooms for you.

Are you an early bird? We invite you to the eastern, spacious room. At dawn, you will wake up singing birds and the morning sun rays, unless you close the shutters :). There you will find one double bed, two single...
beds and an extra bed. There is also a table with a chair and a place for a baby cot, so we have it in place, you do not have to take it from the house :)

Do you need to sleep for all times? In the western, more intimate room you will definitely succeed. One double bed and one single bed and a night table for a book await you.

Love to sleep by the fire? We have a double sofa in the living room just for you.

Outdoors are invited with a sleeping bag on a hammock on the veranda or a mat on the platform. Ah, those stars!

What will I eat?

By giving you all our home, we give you freedom in the kitchen.

Do you like to cook? You will find everything you need either here (dishes, pots, etc.) or on the market near the Radość train station 3 kms away.

Want to rest from cooking? No problem, order food from nearby restaurants just like in...
your home or office. What do you prefer: Polish cuisine or pizza, pasta, kebab, chinese or sushi?

On weekends, we recommend going for a walk - 20 minutes through he forest - to a nearby bar with homemade dumplings or a fried sausage?

How will I be entertained?

What do you prefer?

Do you love water? Here you go: take our lake boat for a ride. Fancy swimming? Great, take a cannonball jump from the pier. Get up at dawn to admire the fog hovering over the water, listen to the birds or catch a fish.

Do you prefer the shore? Take a towel and a hat and sunbathe...
on the deck or lawn; in the evening, snuggle into a blanket, take a look at the stars, listen to frogs and crickets .... well, mosquitoes don't count, do they? ;)

Are you on for some active holiday? Play frisbee, boules, badminton, or go for a long walk to the forest.

In the evening, light up the bonfire - bake a sausage, potatoes, or - ideally - both. Or just sit staring at the fire, chatting with friends until dawn. It's raining? Sit in the armchair with your favorite book by the heat of the fireplace or play a board game.

Are you baked already by the summer in the city, but the boss won't let you go? Take a "semi-vacation" with us - the evenings on the deck will compensate 8 hours of spreadsheets.

Don't you love opening a jar or bottle of self-made fruity goodies in winter? Here you can collect as many flowering quince fruits as you need for liqueurs and jams.

Our lakeside is also perfect for a special event:
* Remember we don't have Wi-Fi, don't you? Come for a training session / business meeting - finally your team will have the space for conceptual work, without refreshing their inboxes every now and then. In one working day in a week, your people will do more long-term work than in a month at the office.

* Maybe you work in education? Great! Outdoor lessons by the lake are what even middle school students like the most. Our friends from various organizations can arrange a botanical walk, bird and frog spotting, open-air cooking and handmade medieval jewelery workshops. Do you have a new class of kids and want to integrate them? We have 80 field games created for this purpose.

Staw Otwarty has also sucessfully hosted:
* Boutique wedding receptions
* Photo sessions
* Polar bear plunges :)

What's for children?

Did you family get bigger recently? Congratulations! Once you get to grips with reality, come to us for a little breather from the city.

We have all the geat you will need: a safety rail for the stairs, electrical sockets with flaps, a cot with a mattress and bed linen, a highchair, a bath...
even a baby monitor so Baby can sleep upstairs or under the shade of a tree while you rest.

Preschoolers love to dig in the ground and pebbles, to wade in the water, to swing on the swing or hammock, to row the boat (yes, we have lifejackets). We have plenty of books, spades, rakes, molds, etc., but they will come up with something much better.

For bigger kids and teenagers we have, first of all, the vast space (4,5 acres of fenced property), badminton, boules, frisbee, mini-table football. Yes, we do not have Wi-Fi... consciously. They will manage!

Great place, great owners :). Cottage is well equipped and in addition has a beautiful property with a pond, which in fact looks even better than the pictures. I would recommend!


A great atmosphere! Everything perfectly prepared both in the house and outside. An ideal place for rest or integration. The homeliness of this place you have to check on your own skin! I highly recommend <3


A wonderful place and great owners. Everything worked out in the smallest detail. I recommend undecided. We will be going back regularly!


This place is a cosmos :) Outside the window cold and fluff, and very good, because you can light in the fireplace, cook something good, fall into the chair, relish the smell of a giant Christmas tree and listen to the sparks and rain! And without any scruples overdose total relaxation :) I recommend with all my heart!


This is a magical place :) The atmosphere is wonderful, everything you need is equipped, COSMO, the highest quality, cozy and comfortable. You can see that the hosts put a lot of heart in creating this place. Everything is perfect.


Fantastic, cozy and quiet place - perfect for a workshop weekend with friends. We felt at ease, and the beauty of this place brought out the strength of our meeting. I would highly recommend!


I was in paradise! And seriously this is a wonderful, unique and extremely atmospheric place (attention, attention ...) in WARSAW. Yes, yes, I was not wrong, it's Warsaw. This place is unexplored, uncommon, with climate and "this something". Being here, you have the impression that you are in the total wilderness, away civilization (which is somewhat true - range you had to look for, which still did not work, wi-fi missing, and the phone was bitterly showing the message "no network" and even more turned up the atmosphere of the place, so that #offline would remain for a dozen or so hours. I fell in love with this place at first sight ❤️ and maybe not even in the place where the atmosphere prevails there .. time flows there slower, you fall asleep by the sound of crickets, and you are awakened by the rays of sun and birds singing through trees ❤ ️ I recommend with all my heart ❤️


Revelation! A magical, cozy and very atmospheric place. I organized an atmospheric bachelorette party for my friend, each girl was charmed and the bride does not believe that it is Warsaw until today :) the plaiting of the wreaths was the greatest fun in the world, and the greenery around the perfect scenery for a boho photographic session. A really special place!


It is a magical place where you can afford a complete reset and feel like in Masuria without leaving Warsaw


An ideal place for Varsovians looking for relaxation in nature without long journeys. Great hosts. For the first time in 3 years, I had so much peace and respite from the virtual world to read a whole book. I will definitely come back here. I recommend to everyone, you will not regret it.


We hid for a moment in a warm and pleasant cottage at Staw in the harsh winter and the city and it was sensational - we will remember the evenings like in a mountain hostel by the fireplace. A walk can take you to a nearby forest. In the summer it must be great there too, using a boat and a lake or lighting a fire - we are going to come back here :)


Fantastic, magical, with Heart and Passion place for both lovers and groups interested in creative meetings in the form of workshops or climatic meals in combination with nature. I'm a fan of this place, being a guest of Lili and Mark a few times already. But I'm back there every time with the expectation of living full of quiet and calm. I recommend highly:)


I was there and still can not believe that this place exists! I'm charmed. Once you close the gate you can forget about the world. Modern Warsaw is gone, I'm moving in the 30's. Or maybe over some lost, mysterious Lake Podlasie or Masuria? I swim with the cool water and the sunshine on the last hot summer day. And then a book on the hammock, a rocking chair in front of the fireplace or a walk through the drawbridge to the island? Slow, we have time for everything, nobody will find us here ... It is really difficult to describe the magic of this place, but if someone dreams of visiting Narnia, the mysterious garden or dacha from the "burning sun" Michalkow, this is the place for him. I am very hopeful that the owners of the Open Pond will be able to preserve this fabulous authenticity and will not turn it into a luxury spa or a lawn mansion. Thank you for opening it :) Beata and Sin 31.08.2017


Wonderful, atmospheric place. Total relaxation in a wonderful environment. Morning coffee on the platform tasted exceptionally well. We will definitely be back! Greetings to Hosts :)
