-Kashubian combines years of hotel industry experience with the idea of a family-run business. It’s a step closer towards the concept of slow life. The philosophy includes sharing the idea and place with people who expect a certain distance, with a pinch of luxury. We’d like to be viewed by our guests as a unique place, so much different from places like five-star hotels, etc. – say owners of Kashubian Lodge & Spa, located near Przywidz.
Kashubian Lodge&Spa is perfect if you’d like to relax in a unique environment. Pristine, Kashubian nature. Amazing, clean air. An enormous garden and a meadow that leads to Połęczyńskie lake, which is almost 2 kilometres long. Kashubian is a place that will suit the needs of the most demanding guests.
-Each element of the building, from tiling to stairs and elevation are basically our own projects. The house and its exterior was created 18 years ago and was inspired by our fascination with Tuscany and Provence. At the same time, it retains typical Kashubian roof elements. Large glazings make it seem like the building is “inviting” the surrounding landscape inside. Garden is accessible from anywhere in the house. When the weather is right, everything concentrates outside – says Ryszard Rutkowski, host of Kashubian Lodge & Spa.
Originally, it used to be a regular house. In time, however, owners began to develop it. Today, it comprises four apartments (two of which are larger, and have been arranged to suit family needs), living room with a fireplace, SPA zone with a swimming pool, and a terrace with a magnificent view of the surrounding area.
– Our swimming pool and SPA zone have been designed to remind our guests of home: warm colours, lots of natural stone, etc. The interior is further styled with lots of fabric and plants. Our SPA offer includes access to a large, warm, swimming pool with a stunning view, and a spacious sauna with a panoramic window facing a beech grove. It can be used as a Finnish sauna , or a steam room. The sauna offers a kind of mystical vibe, with trinkets and gadgets brought from India and Saudi Arabia. Candles, different kinds of incense, soothing music, and gentle sound of flowing water is a balm for the soul. The pool and sauna offer a magnificent view, practically any time of the year. Like in a fairy tale – says Ryszard Rutkowski.
Kashubian Lodge & SPA is a complex leisure offer for entire families, groups of friends, couples, or people who seek solitary rest. Delicious food is provided by the owners. As they say, the base of their cooking are vegetables and herbs, grown in their yard, or by their friends and neighbours who run ecological farms in the neighbourhood. What’s on the menu? Traditional bigos, as well as pierogi, but also ricotta-stuffed zucchini flowers, as well as salmon, or spinach ravioli. – We prepare food by ourselves, always putting our hearts into the process – say the owners.
There is plenty to do in the neighbourhood if you’re craving active, open-air leisure. The Three Lakes blue cycling route goes nearby, which is part of an over 100-km cycling route network in Przywidz county. Kashubian Landscape Park is also located in the near vicinity. In winter, Kashubian Lodge & Spa is surrounded by Kashubian ski complexes of Przywidz, Wieżyca, and Trzepowo, which can be reached in 20 minutes by car.
It is a perfect place to relax, but also to spend time actively.
