You long for relaxation, rest and peace? Or are you looking for a place of encounter, activity and conviviality? Then you are exactly right with us. Welcome to the "Vierseithof Schmole" in Horka near Crostwitz - "Witajce k nam" in the bilingual Upper Lusatia.
My father often helped during the holidays on my aunt's four-sided house. Since 1996 he renovated it piece by piece. With enormous effort and with a long breath. Old half-timbered houses, old plows and tractors have always fascinated him. The Umgebindehäuser in the yard ... that was still healthy construction with clay. In the winter it kept warm, in the summer nice and cool.
He had to act, because in Horka the farm was empty since 1988. Buildings fell noticeably. Devices rusted away.
In 1996/97 he renovated the barn, in 1998/99 the house and after 2000 followed the renovation of the former cowshed, in which the here offered shared accommodation is located.
The cowshed dates back to 1786 and is the oldest building on the Vierseithof. On the ground floor there used to be a cow and chicken coop. Hay was stored upstairs. Also a room for pigeon breeding found its place there. The roof was re-covered with the original roof tiles. From the courtyard side a Pawlatsche (catwalk) was grown. The upper floor and the roof were completely rebuilt. In the 2. Upstairs, a shared accommodation was established in 2017. In the 1. Upstairs a large kitchen and a ballroom dominate the building.
The stairs take you to the spacious accommodation, which is spread over the first and second floors and is therefore not barrier-free. The accommodation can accommodate 11 persons - groups of up to 30 persons are also possible on request. In the 1. Upstairs there is a full kitchen (fridge, freezer, dishwasher, stove with oven, stainless steel sink). The 180 square meter and comfortable accommodation in the beautiful landmarked building invites you to relax. There are 2 large dormitories, 2 separate bathrooms and a lounge area (with LED Smart TV incl. SAT TV and popular Internet apps such as Amazon Video, Youtube and Netflix).
The accommodation is very cozy and has the charm of yesteryear - beautiful hardwood floors are as present as beamed ceilings. By using natural materials and warm earth tones, you can relax and enjoy your stay. This is the perfect accommodation for shared vacations of several families or stays of other groups (eg Divers, assembly workers, land tourists, school trips, class reunions).
We offer you:
• Have a pleasant stay in a traditional and listed four-sided farm,
• Accommodation in renovated farmhouse,
• WLAN access,
• A temporary agricultural-historical exhibition in the attic of the barn
