Chata Knyszewicze

Add the name of your place

Location Poland, Podlasie Province, Knyszewicze
In the middle of nowhere in the Sokólskie Hills, at the intersection of cultures and borders, my great-grandparents built a wooden house covered with alder shavings. This was almost 100 years ago, and the cottage is as it stood in Knyszewicze, but it has a lot to say about the present day. Out of respect for the hard fate my ancestors experienced in this land and the richness of the surrounding landscapes, I decided to take care of the family farm. I took care of the entire renovation myself, and the work was a kind of contemplation. I decided to share this special place for me and my family with those who like peace and quiet. From a distance, it looks like it did 100 years ago. House on a hill, in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by fields, meadows and woods. Behind the wooden fence, there are beds with vegetables, a barn and a wooden cottage with a beautiful family history. Carefully renewed, warm and clean. You will always find hot samovar tea, down bedding, woollen slippers, a green tiled stove and deer outside the window. There are two bedrooms with wooden beds, a quite modern bathroom and a problem with cell service. Hearty people in the village, milk straight from the cow, fresh eggs, and an unlimited garden with potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, onions and cucumbers. There is icy water from the well and Belarus just over the fence. Nearby, picturesque, deserted villages with wooden cottages, Orthodox churches, old windmills, fields and forests to the horizon. It is a kind of gate to Belarus and a place on the path of a freely wandering herd of bison. Here, the landscape soothes, the air heals, the calls of cuckoos bring joy, and the work of bees and the sound of the woodpecker inspire. Peace and quiet are free.

Here Slowhop will describe your place

Host:
Piotr
An advocate of Podlasie and Western Belarus, and everyday history and WOS high school teacher. I teach independent thinking, objectivity and a deeper look at the processes taking place in the world. I come from a Belarusian family who has lived in today's eastern Podlasie for centuries, and in the former Grodno region. Since childhood, my soul was drawn to the East, to the religion, language and culture of my ancestors. That is why I call the farm my little Belarus and the interior and exterior decorations of the house refer to old Belarusian cottages.

In fragrant bedding, down pillows and duvets, on 100-year-old-looking beds. In a hammock, deckchair or blanket in the tall grass of a flowering Podlasie meadow. The whole house is at your disposal, offering comfortable accommodation all year round. Two rooms can accommodate a maximum of 5 people, although the vacation arrangements may be various. Just the two of them, two plus one, their three, two plus two, and even in a quintet. In one bedroom you will find a double bed, and in the other one single and one double bed. There is a tiled kitchen and a more modern part, samovar tea, kvass. Sacred icons on the walls and lace napkins on the tables. There is a fireplace and a rocking chair, Podlasie hospitality and a friendly host who will be happy to help in any situation. It is like 100 years ago, warm, cozy, with no rush and no marvels of technology. Only a new bathroom with a shower reminds us of the 21st century. The closest neighbors are several dozen meters away from the farm, so there is no crowds. There are fields, forests, grain, and in winter, snow and cross-country skiing. You have an exclusive backyard with an ecological garden, a place for a bonfire and the whole rural atmosphere. So there are wild animals, insects, bats and Podlasie cats walking their own ways. I checked for myself that this place is perfect for families with children (parents in a smaller room, and children in a larger room) or (parents with children in a larger room, and grandparents in a smaller room). This time, leave your pets at home.

What will I eat?

Local, nobly prepared and healthy food. Sourdough bread, home-made cottage cheese, milk straight from a hand-milked cow, eggs from happy chickens, vegetables, herbs and even flowers. On site, I will reveal to you my contacts to local producers, restaurants and nearby shops. Our Knyszewice farm has an ecological garden with: Podlasie potatoes - "tuber", carrots, onions, beetroots, cabbage, squash, courgettes, cucumbers and tomatoes. Treat yourself to whatever you want, eat straight from the flower bed or prepare tasty dishes. The nearest shops are in Babiki (4.8 km) or Szudziałowo (7.6 km). When it comes to recommended restaurants, the closest is a 15-minute drive (12 km) in the village of Bohoniki - home-made Tatar food there, or a little further in Kruszyniany, where you can also try Tatar delicacies. Be sure to visit Karczma pod Sokołem in Sokółka and you will not regret it. You can also go to Supraśl (40 minutes away), visit the Orthodox 16th-century monastery with the Icon Museum and taste Podlasie dishes in the family restaurant Jarzębinka in the center of the town. You can buy regional products every morning in Sokółka, 10 km away. There are also bigger stores that have everything and more. At the entrance to the city there is Biedronka (13 km).

Allow yourself to discover a new flavor. The taste of a peaceful, nature-harmonized old village life. There will be time for everything: drawing spring water from a well in the yard, preparing dishes on a live fire, baking delicacies in a ghost house, smoking fingers in a kitchen smokehouse, walking to the market square in a nearby town for organic eggs, cheese, milk and cream. In spring and summer, you can turn into gardeners and take care of the beds - collect vegetables in a basket, dig potatoes and prepare simple dishes that smell like a garden. The brave ones will find a manual scythe and tall grass. After the hard work, it's time to rest on a bench in the shade, close to a hundred-year-old linden tree and enjoy the prepared dishes in the company of crickets and fresh air. Having finished the meal, you should cut it in a hammock under an apple tree, even tastier than lunch, an afternoon nap. In the fall, people go mushroom picking in nearby forests, cook them for food, or dry them and preserve them. Also at this time of the year, the old orchard always generously offers natural sweets. In winter, however, it's time to chop wood and burn in stoves, and after the hardships of the day, settle in a comfortable rocking chair and warm yourself with the warmth of the flames dancing in the fireplace. You can take cross-country skiing and explore the area on skis, you can follow in the footsteps of wild boars. Binoculars recommended! The cottage offers close proximity to the forest, walks on hills, walks in the woods, tracking and "hunting" with the camera lens. And if you are lucky, you can stay in the house and watch freely living forest animals (deer, hares, wild boars) through the windows. In the vicinity of Podlaska Chata you can encounter a wandering herd of bison. It is also a great place for bicycle trips along forest and field paths around Sokólskie Wzgórza, from which you can see the mysterious Belarus. The bikes are there, you don't have to take yours. In the area, cycle paths with vast landscapes meandering on fairytale hills. Within a short car trip, the Tatar villages of Bohoniki and Kruszyniany, Belarusian Grodno on the Nemunas, the multicultural town of Krynki and the beautiful Supraśl with the 16th-century Orthodox monastery, and above all the mighty forests of the Knyszyn Forest. Silence, space and wilderness - that's what people go to Podlasie for! If you want and have time, I will be happy to help you organize a day trip to Grodno. I can also be a personal guide and guardian. I wish my modest, wooden, country cottage to become a refuge for everyone who needs to get away from the rushing world, stop for a while and rest. Dear guests, make yourself at home.

Digital detox, swings and the ability to climb to the heights, i.e. tree crowns. A sandbox in the shade of an apple tree, a carrot from a bed, a hammock and a place for a fire. Soon there will be a cleansing and hardening Russian pumpkin. We have a baby bath and a crib for little ones - let me know if you need to.

Fantastyczne miejsce w okolicy idealnej do wyluzowania i ucieczki od miejskiego zgiełku. Chata zadbana i urządzona w białoruskim stylu. Niezwykły klimat dzięki pięknemu piecowi kaflowemu. Gospodarz przywitał nas chlebem na zakwasie i porcją jaj, które do końca pobytu wystarczyły nam za śniadanie :)

Świetne miejsce na reset od miasta! tradycyjna, odnowiona i komfortowa drewniana chata, w pełni wyposażona. Fajne miejsce dla osób z dziećmi by odpocząć. Jedyny minus to łóżko które nie jest zbyt wygodne dla wysokich osób. Bardzo miły gospodarz który wie wiele o okolicy oraz jej historii.

Goście przyjeżdżający do mego domku, chcą na chwilę zapomnieć o teraźniejszości i chociaż minimalnie poczuć się jak nasi przodkowie, którzy żyli w skromnych, wiejskich, drewnianych chatach. Domek otwierając swe drzwi, stawił to za swój priorytet, jednak mając na uwadze swych przyszłych mieszkańców, został przystosowany do współczesnego człowieka. Wymiary materaców są standardowe (200 cm długości).

Uwaga! Pobyt w Chacie Knyszewicze niesie duże ryzyko, że bez pamięci zakochamy się w Podlasiu (a dokładniej - w Grodzieńszczyźnie) oraz nie będziemy w ogóle mieli ochoty wracać do szarej, miejskiej rzeczywistości. Tylko dla spragnionych absolutnej ciszy, czystego powietrza i przepięknych widoków. Do tego Pan Piotr jest fantastycznym gospodarzem, z przyjemnością słuchałam wraz z mężem jego historii o regionie i lokalnej kulturze białoruskiej. Mamy nadzieję wkrótce odwiedzić to miejsce ponownie :)
