Siedlisko Otwartych Okiennic 

Add the name of your place

Location Poland, Podlasie Province, Trześcianka
There is an intimate resting place where storks build their housing estates, colourful Orthodox churches gleam with golden domes, and houses twinkle with colourful shutters. For couples who like to lie under a pear tree or a chimney, for a lazy trip with friends, an outing with a dog and a cat, an electronic detox, long weeks for writers and active weekends for cyclists. In the village of Trześcianka, which boasts manor house origins and rich ancestral history, there is a home that draws from the best. The location of Siedlisko Otwartych Okiennic (Land of Open Shutters) obliges! The ancestral wooden cottages of the Podlasie settlers became the inspiration for the minimalist and minimal in size house, which opens the shutters to a beautiful half-acre yard fully fenced for your pet and kid:) The land itself is finished with a wall of forest accessed by many nearby paths. In the western part of the Narew commune, where most of the inhabitants are Orthodox Christians, and everyone speaks Podlasie, there is an atmosphere that cannot be replicated. This is no magical land, although the landscapes here are truly fairytale-like. The Land of Open Shutters includes three places: Trześcianka, Soce and Puchły, all of which boast picture-postcard wooden architecture. Attention is drawn to the unusual ornamentation around windows, gables and corners, painted in bright, contrasting colours, which is typical for our region. You can truly disconnect from reality in the 41 square metre cottage with a bedroom on the mezzanine floor. Mornings are inaugurated by a bird radio :) Then breakfast in the garden, a walk in the village and a chat with a neighbour who offers icy water from a well. You can kayak down the Narew River, have a delicious dinner in Białowieża and listen to the never-ending silence. Sometimes a tractor will pass by, a stork will fly overhead, and the sky will light up with so many stars that an abacus will not help. Welcome to our friendly community of people who know a different definition of time, healthy food and fresh air. With us, everything is as it used to be without artificial additives and flavour enhancers.

Ernest i sympatyczni sąsiedzi
I'm Ernest, the owner of the house I built for our family 8 years ago, without a business vision. DOM in XS version is a prototype designed by my friend. Minimalism turned out to be a hit because Podlasie wilderness started to attract friends and friends of friends. I like coming here with my fiancée, our son and our pets because apart from the stars, which blow our minds, we have wonderful neighbours. Relationships in the village are golden. It's an atmosphere that's hard to describe. We feel as if we are going to another country. Such an idyllic one, flowing with milk and honey. The neighbours are very helpful, they have the keys to everything, including hearts. Before you arrive, I will tell you where to buy eggs, where to have dinner, and how to go to the river in Brestanka. The house is now also presented as a prototype for the company DOMXS, because this very building became the beginning of the above-mentioned company in 2015:)

In a cottage that is perfect for romantic getaways, a quiet weekend with a toddler, an intimate holiday with a pet with a private sky full of stars, a rocking sofa under a pear tree and a view of the forest. Trześcianka is a typical agricultural village, so the plots are narrow and long, most often ending with an arable field. Habitat of Open Shutters is lucky that our area is divided into 3 zones - smooth, wild and forest. At the beginning of the garden, there is the oldest house in the village, with old wood, still full of resin, from before 100. It dates from 1896, but it is waiting for its time and adds Podlasie charm to the main building of the habitat. We have prepared the central part of the property like a golf course. The grass is trimmed, and there are so many places that you can fly kites, play badminton, lie belly up and eat breakfast in the open air. A part of the plot is overgrown with wild tall grass and ends with a forest wall. Hedgehogs, storks and butterflies are welcome with us. Make yourself comfortable in a 41-meter cottage with a mezzanine bedroom and a bathtub overlooking the garden. This space in the XS version is best for a couple in love or a 2 + 1 family. In addition to the mattress at the top, you can spread out on comfortable mattresses placed on pallets at the bottom. For dogs, we have large bowls outside the house. However, remember to clean up after pets - it is very important to us. Fans of raw finishes and OSB boards will find their place in a minimalistic finished house. The interior is fully functional, the kitchen is equipped with all comforts, coffee, coffee maker and a small 2-burner hob and a dishwasher. Above the heads there is a mezzanine with a double mattress and a desk with a chair for work. Downstairs, with the windows wide open or in the warmth of the fireplace, you can read the proposals on the spot, play board games, take a nap on mattresses with soft pillows and forget about the world of God. The bathroom with a bathtub and shower is tiny, but has a hidden gem. One of the walls changes into a window overlooking the garden, and thus the bathing becomes a ritual. The toilet is separate. The equipment also includes an iron, hair dryer, wardrobes, furniture and a large table with benches in the garden. We warn you that we do not have wifi and TV :) Those who use the cellular network can watch series on their portable devices without any problems, because the range here is very good. ORANGE works best because there is LTE, other networks will also do well, we have PLAY in our phones :)

Privacy is the main advantage of the habitat, which is why we give you a fully equipped kitchenette with everything you need to prepare holiday meals at a high level. There will be 2 coffee makers on site, fresh, good-quality ground coffee, a coffee grinder, cutlery, dishes, pots. If you want to sit by the fire, you have to take into account that you are in a village of wooden houses. Fire must not be kindled here during drought and wind. Be careful and don't play with the element. You can ask our neighbor Ewa for: - fresh chicken, guinea fowl, duck and free-range turkey eggs, - after ordering, you can buy pickles from an organic rural farm, - fresh bread, - delicious home-made cakes baked in a private house by a Lady from Narew, - fresh in the season: tomato, cucumber, lettuce, radish, green beans, onion, chives always plentiful. From fruit: cherries, Hungarian plums, strawberries. And when you meet Mr. Neighbor from behind the fence and ask for it nicely and pour fresh water from the well :)

Here, in principle, you come to calm down, get fresh air and ice water from the well. Entertainment is lying under a pear tree, reading books, hunting for shutters with a lens in hand, stork watching, chatting with a neighbor, breakfast in the garden and board games with a glass of wine in hand. You can kayak on the Narew river, try kiszka and potato cake, listen to melodic herring, visit Białowieża, Siołobuda, oriental Kruszyniany and Bohoniki, try Tatar cuisine and admire the palace in Tykocin. Take two wheels with you and get to know the area in a sporty way. The first item worth recommending is the Podlaski Stork Trail, following which you can admire the beautiful scenery of the Narew River, and at the same time get to know the symbol of Podlasie - the white stork, who liked our peaceful and wild areas. The second picturesque route is the Trail of Orthodox Temples. There are many colorful historic churches, chapels and votive crosses on its way. Being in the very center of the largest Orthodox community, it is worth getting to know the culture, traditions and customs of people of this faith. Another route worth recommending is the "Tree and Sacrum" Podlaski Cultural Trail. The route runs through the villages of Bielsko and Hajnów and shows the beauty of wooden architecture. And in the evening, after returning from a walk, mushroom picking or lying down with a book in your hand, looking at the sky in silence, discover that there are many more stars than you thought. The sky is black like morning coffee and Lithuanian bread. Beach, cranes, peace, quiet and the areas of the "Polish Amazon". It is worth learning the secrets and legends about the Siemianówka reservoir by visiting this place of relaxation and unusual stories. Do you know that in order to create a reservoir, 289 farms from eight villages were bought and expropriated, of which: Rudnia, Garbary, Bołtryki, Łuka and Budy were completely liquidated. In 1987, the late Tamara Sołniewicz made a film about the construction of the reservoir and the expropriation of the local population. It is worth seeing the documentary "Do You Hear the Earth Cry". In our place: - The Land of Open Shutters, i.e. a loop of three towns: Trześcianka - Puchły - Soce is a total of 12 km. Go for a long walk or a pleasant ride on your own bike through beautiful and picturesque villages with a visit to the Narew River, - ask Ewa to open an old cottage from 1896. Feel the atmosphere of the oldest house in Trześcianka, - play boules, rest in a hammock, play a badminton match. In the area: - 6 km away, in the town of Ancuty you will find a canoe rental. We will help you organize a canoeing trip down the Narew River valley. A driver will pick you up from outside the house. For contact, please ask Ms Ewa. - 8 km away you will find the only Skit of Saint Anthony and Teodozjusz Pieczarski in Odrynki, the only one in Poland. - at a distance of 8 km you will find the interesting "Village Museum in Narew", - for those who want an unforgettable experience in Podlasie, we recommend a balloon flight:

What’s there for children?

If you come to Siedlisko with a toddler, it is definitely to spend time in the grass, pick pears from trees, look for storks and pet country cats. We do not have a playground (except for a small sandbox :), but we can boast 2,500,000 meters of grass, so there is nowhere to run barefoot. We make kids electronic detox, because you will not find internet and TV with us. However, we know from experience that young people forget about the existence of screens and chase the ball, swing in a hammock, play badminton, take out toys and organize picnics, spending carefree holidays in the open air. Take a walk around the village, because there are even more attractions - and the tractor will pass, and the hen will jump onto the road, somewhere a ram will roar and a dog will bark. We know that this is enough for the little ones. If you will need a feeding chair, contact Ms. Ewa.

Dziękujemy i zapraszamy ponownie:)!


Było Super ;) Cudowna okolica, i koza, która zapewniła ciepło jak wysiadł prąd w kilkunastu wsiach podczas niespodziewanej kwietniowej śnieżycy ;)

Host: Ernest i sympatyczni sąsiedzi

Zapraszamy ponownie:)! Cieszę się i dziękuje za dobra opinie na Slowhop. Miłego dnia i do zobaczenia:)!


Mały przytulny domek w spokojnej okolicy idealny aby oderwać się od zgiełku miasta. Zadbany i ogrodzony teren bez psów w bezpośrednim sąsiedztwie pozwolił na spokojny wypoczynek zarówno nam jak i naszym czworonożnym dziewuchom. Nawet styczniowe deszcze nie odebrały uroku temu miejscu. Polecamy!

Host: Ernest i sympatyczni sąsiedzi

Cieszę się bardzo z Państwa polecenia:)! Zapraszam serdecznie w każdej porze roku. Podlasie jest za każdym razem inne:):) Miłego dnia Ernest
