Some extraordinary power of nature attracts good souls here. The wild Beskid Wyspowy (Island Beskids) mountains have become home to many modern hippies, carefree nomads and enthusiasts of simple pleasures. They prove that you do not have to cross oceans to take a break from everyday life.
It is the same with us. Between the green islands, above the clouds, in the lavender buffer zone, we found our place of constant delight. We haven't regretted the change since we moved out of the city. On the slope of Góra Chełm, we raise our happy children, we walk, we respect nature and we do not pollute the sky with unnecessary light. Every day is different but just as charming. We want you to feel it too.
Feel the misty morning air, take in the beauty of the mountain landscapes, snack on blackberries and wild strawberries from the bushes, pick mushrooms in the forest. In pyjamas, sit on the wide windowsill of a fragrant wood house, drink coffee while gazing at the landscape, warm yourself in the glow of the fireplace and leave all your worries behind. At this altitude, happiness comes from simple pleasures, the garden has a life of its own, kids have their fun, and adults have time to calmly live in the moment.
Here you will find more beauty, a slower pace, conscientious living and togetherness.
Alicja i Jakub Wiechniak
We are a couple who abandoned the hustle and bustle of beautiful Kraków a few years ago to raise our children in a rhythm dictated by the seasons and drink coffee in the morning while looking at the Beskid Mountains that surround us. We like people who feel the way we do.
Sports for everyone – football, volleyball, basketball and tennis on a private court
Pets are welcome
Ski slope just 1 km away
Lots of forest trails and paths – not always downhill
The home is an amazing project. A child that is in a small family, witnessed many emotions, heard a lot of laughter, on the thresholds of which we rested and admired the picturesque nature. Now it's time to open its cozy space to others. Full of hope and excitement, we invite you to the very tip-top... of the mountain. To the top of Góra Chełm, to a modern wooden house with a panoramic window ensuring the widest possible view of the Beskids. We filled the interiors with a cozy, calm atmosphere, soft fabrics, natural colors and comfortable places to rest. Here, a book will fall into your hands and the canvas hammock invites you to take a nap.
Chata Beskidu was an innovative project at the time, by architect Bartek Sitarski, finished by interior designer Katarzyna Kuchejda, from whom my close uncle bought the property 15 years ago. It happened that the house landed in our hands and now gets the shape in an amazing way right in front of our eyes.
There is enough space for 7 people.
The ground floor is an open seating area with a HD view of the beautiful Beskid Wyspowy. You will find here a fireplace, a large fold-out sofa and a dining area, to which the unusually atmospheric kitchen belongs. Wood for the fireplace is always ready to spend a romantic evening with flames.
The ground floor also has a small bathroom with an open shower.
Up the stairs to the first floor where you will be having the most beautiful sweet dreams. It is a part of the bedroom with two spacious rooms, in which there are comfortable double beds and a bathroom with a separate shower. In addition, one of the bedrooms has a fold-out armchair that fits as a single bed.
Next to the house there are two terraces that are perfect for barbecue feasts and astronomical delight over shooting stars. Barbecue included in the package.
At your disposal is a private professional tennis court, which can also act as a football field, volleyball, badminton, basketball. We will not leave you empty handed, because the basic equipment for the above-mentioned sports is provided.
We invite you and your pets.
We, the hosts, live on the same mountain, although on the other slope. We live about 15 minutes drive away so usually we`re there for you. If there is a need, my husband or I will be happy to give you advice about the area or help.more
What will I eat?
Up high, everything tastes delicious, and we try to make sure you don't run out of anything. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a garden where you can enjoy breakfast on the grass in the summer. The house is located almost at the top of the mountain, so a walk in winter shopping can be a real expedition.... At a distance of about 200 m there is a "first necessity" shop, and to have a choice you have to walk down to the foot, about 5 km. There are huge shops in Myślenice.
For local and home-made products, go to the market street next to the Main Square in Myślenice. There you can catch real cheese, fresh eggs, homemade sourdough bread and seasonal fruit and vegetables.
The Jan market in Stara Cegielnia also deserves special mention, offering an unbelievable range of products and stocking meat from local slaughterhouses, natural cold cuts, fruit and vegetables from the surrounding area. In addition, they have an excellent delicatessen, made on site and a large selection of alcohol in the form of a "cellar".
If you are hungry outside, you must know that Myślenice is standing with a pizza. But not just any pizza, Italians would not be ashamed of it:
- Excellent, from a wood-burning oven at the "Camorra" pizzeria and fantastic PINSA at "Street Food Italia" - excellent fresh pasta also on the menu.
- Delicious coffee, cakes and crazy Małgosia's dumplings (made on the spot) at the "Kavka Cafe".
- Honest lunches at the Sova restaurant.
- Something a little more exquisitmore
What will I do?
Should you wish to take a breath, with beautiful views and the smell of wood, this is the right place. We provide a postcard view of the watchman's panorama - once frosted, sometimes red-red, other times lush green or quite white. There are wild trills among which you can contemplate, practice yoga in... the garden, take a break from rest and take a nap in a hammock for a moment or two and delight with natural silence.
We also have something for active people: a private tennis court, where you can play not only tennis, but also football and basketball. You play and we provide you with rackets and balls so that you can have a good time together.
Mount Chełm, on the top of which the Chata stands, is both a tourist place, due to the numerous trails, the nearby ski slope and a viewpoint, but at the same time giving solace and peace thanks to its location high up on the mountain, where touristic impulses do not reach. Runners and cyclists can test themselves on island peaks and improve their VO2 max. Our poviat is criss-crossed with colorful threads of walking and cycling routes of varying degrees of difficulty.
Nature often paints before our eyes impressive pictures that are breathtaking and memorable. Singing birds carried by refreshing gusts of wind is the most beautiful melody.
At the foot of the mountain we can soak our feet in the crisp, crystal-clear, joyfully skimming river Raba, but when you feel like you want to discover a bit of the secrets of old Krakow, a half-hour journey is enough to get to his heart.
We direct all avid cyclists to Kasina Wielka. This is where the paradise - Bike Park Kasina - was created. Nine routes with different profiles and different levels of difficulty, a modern and fast sofa lift that will take you and your bike to the top in just 5 minutes, a PUMPTRACK bicycle playground for young enthusiasts, a mini gym and a great playground.
Bathing in the river is simply advisable - icy water and swift calf whipping provide calming all year round. Along the banks of the Raba there are rocky beaches and mountain waterfalls that attract locals and tourists. From here, you are only a few steps away from the Zamczysko nad Raba Nature Reserve with the ruins of a medieval stronghold that formerly guarded the trade route from Hungary to Poland.
In case of an urgent need for sightseeing, we are quite close:
- the castle in Niepołomice,
- Niepołomicka Forest,
- Bochnia (with a salt mine and archaeological park),
- Lanckorona, the most creative town near Krakow. Although it is only a small town, life beats with an artistic rhythm: in June there is a Midsummer Fair, in July something for motoring fans - Rally of Vintage Vehicles and guitar and poetry workshops, in August the Lanckorona Summer Romantic Festival, and in December Angels Festival.more
What's for children?
Children are important to us. We are happy that every day they can enjoy the mountain air, they run with joy on the grass, eat blackberries and wild strawberries from the bushes and pick mushrooms in the forest. The biggest attraction is the full-size, illuminated tennis court, which can be transformed,... depending on your needs, into a football, volleyball or basketball court. Gather a family team of dreams and wake up the kids' love of movement.
We have plenty of snow in winter. There are snowball fights, digging tunnels in snowdrifts, building an igloo and of course, sleds. At a distance of about 1 km there is a functioning ski slope with an advanced lift and a "donkey meadow" with a T-bar for the youngest skiers.
At the foot of the so-called "Earn", right next to the picturesque Raba River, where everyone can cool down, there is a beautiful, green park with a wooden playground. There you can also find attractions in the holiday and resort atmosphere. There is a skatepark on the more

How to get here?
The only, civilized road leading to the cottage is "a road only for the inhabitants of the mountain" so it is not showing on any GPS.
But take it easy ... we will lead you to your destination.
Cudowne miejsce - cisza, piękno i bliskość natury w połączeniu z wygoda i klimatycznym wyposażeniem chaty... reset i chwila zapomnienia od zgiełku gwarantowana. Dziekujemy i wrócimy napewno.
To miejsce idealne dla wyciszenia, dla lubiących góry, lasy i miłe wnętrza domu.
Przestronne miejsce z dobrze wyposażoną kuchnią.
Przyjemne poduchy, ciepłe koce przy kominku otulają, gdy patrzymy w dal przez duże panoramiczne okno w salonie. Kort tenisowy mogący pełnić rolę boiska jest ewidentnym plusem.
Dziękujemy za cudne miejsce.
