Jaczno Inn

Gościniec Jaczno (Jaczno Inn) is located on a peninsula among morainal hills and clear lakes, at the very heart of the Suwałki Scenic Park.

Jaczno's lobby welcomes guests with roaring fireplaces and candlelight. In line with a traditional Polish custom, guests also receive a glass of liqueur in welcome.

The local menu primarily features regional specialties, including a dish called kartacze, made of grated potatoes or Eastern cold cuts with a hint of juniper. A local cheese with cumin and herbs is also served. Each day, Jaczno bakes its own specially flavored bread. Guests can also enjoy a selection of splendid liqueurs and wines. One sweet specialty is sękacz (tree cake), a delicious cylindrical cake characteristic of Lithuania and the Podlasie region. For years, it has been baked in the same way: on a special, revolving spit over open fire. A demonstration of tree cake baking can be seen in Jaczno's neighborhood.

The spacious interiors of Jaczno feature wood beams, walls of fieldstone and a tiled stove, side by side with a designer iron staircase. The dining room, which provides a panorama of the lake, is decorated with herbs from nearby meadows. Next to the bread oven is a bar with embedded iron elements, decorated with farming tools. The seats, in turn, are made of old tractor parts.

Rooms and suites have their own names and each has its own unique arrangement, although all share a pleasant atmosphere, and comfort, rustic furniture, minibars and an en suite bathroom. The Żuraw (Crane) suite, with a mezzanine bedroom, offers a view of the lake and tree-covered hills; Plusk (Splash) and Rybak (Fisher) suites-are separate wooden cottages featuring a terrace, fireplace and alcove on the second floor.

Jaczno offers many forms of active relaxation such as mountain bikes and boats. Nearby Lake Hańcza, the deepest lake in Poland, provides the best scuba diving sites. In the winter, bicycle trails are transformed into ski runs and the frozen lake into a skating rink. Other attractions include a real Ruthenian bathhouse by the lake, dry sauna and a gym. Christmas at Jaczno is a unique experience, with a homey atmosphere. One weekend is enough to find that out for yourself.

Prices:
Rooms from zl.220 to 300 (breakfast included), suites from zl.380 to 440. Forty accommodations in total and a conference room.
