Description from owner


Spectacular log home on the outskirts on the forest , The Carpathian Log Home offers comfortable accommodation on three levels. The first floor comprises of a high ceiling living room with fireplace and glass facade to the valley bellow, open plan modern and fully equipped kitchen, a dining room area for 10, a spacious bedroom with en-suite full bathroom, sauna and jacuzzi. The first floor is surrounded by a large terrace, offering magnificent views to the mountains and the valley.

The second floor comprises of two large bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and own terrace, while on the third floor there's a bedroom with en suite bathroom and a gym area with breathtaking views.

The Carpathian Log Home is suitable for ski holidays, relaxing away from it all retreats for families with kids, lovers of nature and traditions, as the village of Bran is the gate to the mysterious Transylvania with its centuries old fortresses and ancient popular traditions. The nearby city of Brasov or the Sighisoara fortress are rich in history and culture, exquisite pubs and clubs and most of all, friendly romanians willing to share the beauties of their country with worldwide tourists.

The house is surrounded by a large terrace and is situated in the middle of an apples orchard. Bran Castle with its rich history and dark legend is only a mile from the house, while the nearest ski slope is only 2 miles away, accessible to all levels.

Located 25 Km from Brasov and 190 Km from Bucharest, Bran represents both a historical place and a legend. Bran is the gateway between Transylvania and Valachia with one side lined by the Piatra Craiului Mountains and the other by the Bucegi Mountains. Bran hosts one of the most visited castles in Europe, the Dracula Castle, the source which inspired the most fascinating legend of the blood- shedding Count Dracula. Although the name of Bran is closely linked to that of the Bran Castle, the region is extremely rich in tourist attractions: the Moieciului Gorges, the Bucegi Mountains and Piatra Craiului, Pestera Dambovicioara, Cetatea Rasnovului (Rasnov Fortress), and also Brasov and the neighbouring Saxon fortresses from Prejmer and Harman. More distant sites can also be visited, such as: Peles Castle in Sinaia, the medieval fortress Sighisoara (UNESCO Patrimony), or Biertan, one of the biggest Saxon fortresses in Transylvania. Bran has also become a place which competes with the town due to its smart villas built in recent years. Living within a well-meaning nature, with hardworking and welcoming people the people from Bran always knew how to benefit from the assets they had from tourism. Rural tourism has been practised in the region for some decades, representing a feasible alternative to the large hotels in the Valea Prahovei or Poiana Brasov resort. Poiana Brasov resort is a traditional place for skiing, but also for spending Summer holidays. the access from Rasnov is pretty short (9kms). The family-like atmosphere that overwhelms you in the rural homes, the people who know to value a "thank you" coming from the bottom of the heart of a tourist after a good wealthy meal, hosts who will proudly show their tastefully decorated houses, are only some of the arguments which will persuade you to prolong your stay in these places.

Getting around

Getting around without a car can be tricky, but not impossible. Taxis will take you to the nearest bus station ( 3 km) or train station ( 7 km). From there you will have connections to Brasov and further away. We strongly recommend renting 4wd cars, Dacia Duster is a cheap, very good option. Roads in Romania are not great, but the last 200 meters to the house are steep and unpaved, it can be difficult to make it all the way up with a regular car, especially in winter time.

Interaction with guest

I have an independent flat at the property, so I might be around during your stay, but it's not a must. I'll be happy to give you tips on where to go and what to see, to help you with making a fire in the fireplace or whatever else you might need, don't hesitate to ask. If I'm not around, there'll always be someone ready to help. You will have complete privacy indoors and outdoors, the only common space we share being the parking lot.
