Forest House

Dormouse House is a place in the Polish Carpathian Mountains, nestled within a lonely forest glade. Surrounded by trees like beech, pine, spruce, fir, ash, lime, alder, balsamic air and almost spring water, it gives us and our friends a lot of inspiration. The house is 86 years old, since 12 years we have been doing it up. It is a place where simple work like wood chopping, mowing or scything can give a fulfilling balance to the virtual and hasty reality. The name "Dormouse House" comes from the cute little gentle animals which live there (they are under protection), as well, there are a lot of other animals. 
If some of our friends would like to spend some time in this remote place and to work there creatively, please feel free to contact me.
Berlin - Forest House ca. 8 hours by car (recommended stop in Cracow). The last 500 meters through the forest only on foot (or by jeep).

Is there anything nicer than listening to your favourite vinyls in the middle of the forest?
The place is friendly to everyone
At the neighbour with a friend of mine (some of our friends travel thousand of kilometers to get here)
This is what you definitely need in the forest: comfortable and rough wellingtons
Very rarely I have some free time from doing the house up, and I can do my art
Three dormouse babies found in the bucket, of course we let them free
We can buy milk products from the local dairy (I think one of the best in Poland), vegetables and eggs directly from the farmer
Already a tradition: hot potatoes
Do you see some differences at the same stove in 2018? Photo taken in August 2007
