Agrotourism by The Pond



Rejsy spacerowe jachtem kabinowymTo those keen on sailing the host, who is a licensed steersman, offers scenic cruises in the cabin yacht across the surrounding lakes and the Elbląg Canal. The cruises length and route varies according to the guests' preferences, and may last a few hours or a couple of days. During the sail 'the captain' prepares a barbecue or a candle-lit dinner on the lake or ashore, in the tranquil bays or on the wooden piers. The cruise is particularly unforgettable in rough weather when the smell of fried fish tempts the crew under the yacht's shelter.

Another tourist attraction in our agrotourism is a chance of staying close to animals. We breed two adult goats and in May 2006 two baby goats were born, which may appeal above all to young children. Those who have enough nerve can milk the goat under the hostess' guidance.

There are several bicycles available for our guests to enable them to admire the countryside in a more active way. The guests can swim either in the river which is 1 km far from the farm at a cosy beach or in the nearby lakes. Guarded beaches are 3km and 5 km far from our house.

Our agrotourism neighbours directly (500m) on the inn 'Mlyn pod Mariaszkiem' ('The Mill Under Mariaszek'), which is a homely restaurant stylishly furnished in a rural fashion. It caters for those who seek traditional Mazurian cuisine and its unforgettable flavours of home-made dishes.
