Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Gmina Stare Juchy - The Lake House Sajzy

Beautiful comfy and cozy lakeside cottage in the village of Sajzy near Elk.

Charming, all year round lakeside cottage in the village of Sajzy near Elk, North East Poland.

This lovely wooden house is a perfect base to explore the stunning region of Masuria, or if you just want to relax and light the BBQ and enjoy the peace and tranquilty it's also excellent.

There are games and toys for the kids and you can light the wood burning stove on any chilly days, but the house has radiators too.

The large private garden has a sandpit, BBQ, fire pit and picnic table.

The lake is right on your doorstep for refreshing swims or why not take the boat available for free and really explore.

The house sleeps 6 adults in beds that can be doubles or twins on request, there is also a camp bed which is downstairs, as well as a cot, the stairs have stairgates at the top and bottom, so the house is ideal for those with families.

Getting Here:: Both Warsaw and Kaunas are served by low-cost airlines as is the local airport of Szymany near Olsztyn only 1 hour 40 minutes away.

There is a direct minibus link from Warsaw Okecie Airport and Warsaw Modlin to Elk 3 times a day and cars can be rented in Elk too.

Warsaw to Elk is a 3 to 4 hour drive depending on which airport and traffic. In 2017 this is going be improved by the completion of the Via Baltica motorway.

Why Sarah Wiechec-Bird chose Poland

My husband and I fell in love with the village of Sajzy the moment we cycled through it and decided to build our little wooden house there. It took 3 years altogether to finish it and we hope you love the results. A house that fits in with it's surroundings and a place to relax and enjoy the forest and the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's wonderful that in Poland there is such a marvelous place as Sajzy.

The house welcomed us with cascading flowers while inside everything was cosy, practical, and very clean, we were able to take a break from the pace of this world.

Throughly relaxed and revived we return ( reluctantly ) to Warsaw.

With heartfelt thanks.

Great getaway! Didn't want to leave...

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you how great this property is for families with young children!! (And those without) We spent an amazing week here and highly suggest it to others. Enclosed yard, baby stair gates, toys, a sandbox...my kids wanted to stay forever! The fire pit and bbq were great for cooking up dinner, and we loved laying outside on those comfy lounge chairs watching for shooting stars. Nice big fridge, comfortable beds, music in the shower... and a boat! My daughter enjoyed her daily fishing trip with daddy (thanks for also providing a kids life vest). Visited Wolf's Lair (about 1 hour by car) as well. I also want to mention that we had one issue while staying here and the owners were very quick to respond and resolve. Thanks again for making this so easy to just come and enjoy!

Gemütliches, tolles Ferienhaus in wunderschöner Lage

  • 5 of 5

Ein urgemütliches Holzhaus mit allem, was das Herz begehrt, sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber, wunderschön gelegen! Es liegt in einem ruhigen Ort, direkt am See, ist ideal um die großartige Landschaft zu genießen und bietet sich perfekt für Ausflüge in die wunderschöne Landschaft und Geschichte Masurens an. Man erreicht in wenigen Minuten Elk, kann dort wunderbar am See spazieren, in Pubs (z.B. "Smetek") und Restaurants sitzen und das Leben, die polnische Gastfreundschaft genießen.

Ausflüge nach Gizycko, Mikolajki zum Befahren der großen Seen bieten sich an, oder in die großartigen Wälder der Johannisburger Heide (Puszcza Piska) oder Rominter Heide (Puszcza Romincka) bei Goldap, Kajaktouren auf der Krutyna sind ein Erlebnis und viele kleine Städtchen und Dörfchen lohnen Ausflüge und Besuche. Man findet hautnah Geschichte in den kleinen und großen Orten, von der Zeit des Deutschordens- in den Ordensburgen- über die düstere Zeit des Nationalsozialismus - Wolfsschanze und Mamerki- und der Kriegsfolgen bis in die neuere Vergangenheit.

Wirkliches Highlight ist sicher die einzigartige Natur, diese Stille, diese Weite, die uralten Alleen, die immer neuen traumhaften Ausblicke auf den Horizont, den nächsten durch die Bäume blinkenden See. Man begegnet vielen Tieren, von denen man in Mitteleuropa oft nur noch gehört hat, sieht mehr Störche und hört mehr Vögel, als sonst oft im gesamten Sommer zusammenaddiert...

Man kann aber auch nur einfach am Haus sitzen grillen, sich an der Stille erfreuen, oder mit dem Ruderboot auf den See fahren, den Tag, den Sonnenuntergang genießen.

Selten habe ich ein so gemütliches Ferienhaus in so guter und schöner Lage erlebt.

Wer Ruhe und Natur sucht ist hier richtig

  • 5 of 5

Ein schönes Holzhaus mit optimaler Ausstattung direk am See mit Ruderboot, was braucht es mehr für einen schönen Urlaub. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und immer ansprechbar bei Problemen. Ein Paddel- Bruch wurde z.B. am gleichen Tag sofort behoben. Wer Fische fangen möchte, muss leider mit gedämpfen Erwartungen an die Sache herangehen.

Empfehlenswert

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus, das Grundstück und die Lage können empfohlen werden. Ausstattung und Einrichtung sind sehr angenehm. Im Haus hat es uns an nichts gefehlt und auch der Grillplatz draußen ist Klasse. Wir würden also wiederkommen. Schön wäre, wenn der Badeplatz am Grundstück etwas auf Vordermann gebracht wird, dann muss nicht auf andere Plätze ausgewichen werden.

Empfehlenswertes Haus am See

  • 5 of 5

Schönes Haus, gute Ausstattung, recht dunkel, deswegen im Sommer angenehm kühl, Fliegengitter an allen Fenstern (beruhigend, auch wenn es kaum Moskitos oder Fliegen gab), großer Garten, ruhige (deutschsprachige) Nachbarschaft, gute Einsatzstelle für Paddler direkt vor dem Haus (Bootsverleih in der Nähe mit großem Bootswagen zum Transport). Das Tor zur Hofeinfahrt wird mit Fernbedienung geschlossen, das Haus ist mit einer Alarmanlage gesichert. Das Restaurant ist außerhalb der Ferienzeit geschlossen. Kein Lebensmittelladen mehr im Ort.

Wir hatten wunderschöne zwei Wochen, konnten immer draußen sitzen und waren froh, dass wir unseren Sonnenschirm dabei hatten.

Mit den Vermietern hat alles super geklappt! Wir können dieses Haus wirklich empfehlen.

Ulrike und Ingo

Fabelhaftes Haus, brit. Charme im masur. Seenland

  • 5 of 5

Wir verlebten nicht nur dank des einmaligen Wetters und der wunderschönen Landschaft zwischen Elk und dem berühmten Dorf Suleyken (Siegfried Lenz) eine traumhafte Woche. Dazu beigetragen hat in erster Linie das Ferienhaus von Sarah Bird, das eine charmante Mischung aus Schwedenhaus und britischem Charme vereint. Gelegen direkt an einem wunderschönen See, in Heideland und Waldnähe, dennoch nicht fern der Stadt.

Was machte den Reiz aus? Schwedenofen, Grillplatz, Holzduft, großzügige Küche mit allen Utensilien und Geräten, Ruderboot vor dem Haus, Riesenveranda, gemütliche Betten, kuscheliges Wohnzimmer, riesiger, gepflegter Garten, nachts absolute Stille und perfekter Sternenhimmel.

Wir werden das Haus nicht vergessen, es wärmstens weiterempfehlen und vielleicht einmal wiederkommen.

Ach ja, das wirklich Einzige, das unser Glück auf 200% erhöht hätte: ein Serviertablett.

The Masurian region is known as the land of a 1000 lakes, close to the Lithuanian border the house is an ideal base to explore a few of them! Lasmiady lake is huge and very clean, ideal for kayaking and swimming. The forest is just a short walk away where you can pick wild mushrooms, strawberries or blueberries or just enjoy the peace and tranquillity and try and spot a deer or moose.

If it's history you like Mazury has plenty, from Hitler's bunkers to pyramids, old castles, churches, monasteries, palaces we can help out with off the beaten track treasures.

Fishing: The record pike caught with a fishing rod in Poland weighed over 24 kg, and the biggest carp was 3kg heavier. Pike, pike-perch, catfish and eels are abundant in the lakes and rivers. All fishermen have to have a license which can be purchased easily in Elk, and boats and other watersports equipment can be rented in Sajzy just 250m from the house.

Golf: There is a golf course about 15km in Talki.
