Why should you stay at our guesthouse?

- You will feel like you have gone back to the past.
The building is located on the outskirts of the foothill village of Šumiac / 890 m.a.s.l. / with crystal clear mountain air at the interface of the national parks of the Low Tatras, Muráň Plateau and Slovak Paradise, directly under the majestic Kráľová Hoľa / 1946 m.a.s.l. /. The amount of original chalets has been preserved in the village; they are often used for recreational purposes. The village is well known also for keeping folkways and customs. Its location off the main routes will offer you the opportunity to relax in the silence of nature.
Accommodation is suitable for families with children as well as for smaller groups. Relaxation can be found in five two- to four-bed rooms, all equipped with private bathrooms. There is a spacious dining room with an original masonry stove and a lounge - game room with sitting in front of a radiant fireplace hearth, which you may find pleasant especially after winter skiing.
You will appreciate a varied selection of breakfast at the buffet table, a colourful array of chilled alcoholic and soft drinks, and an opportunity to eat nearby.
During your stay, we will be glad to assist you with your leisure. In winter and spring, we recommend the most suitable ski terrain in the surroundings, with a transport to the lift by our ski bus; in summer, we provide you the information on the opening hours in nearby caves, castles, museums and swimming pools, or organize a trip for you and your family.
Ideal leisure time is different for anyone. Someone just sits at the Internet for hours surfing, which gives him psychic powers to other hard-working days. This is probably was has brought you here.
Do you belong to those, for whom this is simply not enough? Our surroundings have something to offer to almost everyone. Excellent location at the junction of three national parks is inviting for hiking of any difficulty through romantic valleys, gorges with beautiful waterfalls, or high ridges of surrounding mountains with unforgettable views. Even fans of cycling come into own by testing their skills at the highest place, where you can get in Slovakia - the fabled Kráľová Hoľa, or surprisingly vast grassland of Horehronské Podolie, or deep, preciously wooded valleys of Muráň Plateau and the Slovak Paradise. At the start of your cycling trip, you will be 30 meters far from the storage space for your two-wheel 'horse', which, in turn, provides space to store your downhill or cross-country skis in winter. Nearby ski resorts of Telgárt, Vernar and Polomka or a distal Chopok-South try to fool the poorness of snow of the last years by providing artificial snowing, enabling downhill skiing from December to May, while our position, making Šumiac belonging to one of absolute tops regarding altitude, enables setting out for cross-country skiing, sledding, and alpine skiing, directly from our yard.
Do you like sports with a larger dose of adrenaline? We will offer you rafting of the rivers of Hron, Hornád, Hnilec and ČIerny Váh, which is not far away especially in the spring but, in the summer, we will take you to the start and finish too. You do not have to go far after canoeing, boating, or rafting; there is much to offer also to the beginners and the more proficient ones in these sports. The same goes for rock climbing at only 8 km away Tesná Skala (Tight Rock) with more than 100 prepared trails of all difficulty. Kráľová Hoľa in turn belongs to the popular paragliding sites - experts know what I mean...
If you feel there was already enough of adrenaline, you can relax while picking mushrooms and berries, year-round swimming in the nearby pools and having saunas in Predná Hora (Front Mountain) and Závadka nad Hronom, or rising in a saddle of the horse, from where the world is said to be the most beautiful.
Even the fans of folklore come into their own in Šumiac. During the year, a number of interesting events is held in the village of Heľpa; history lovers love to see nearly 200 original wooden houses, the ruins of Muran Castle, or Hrásna Hôrka, Betliar, Spiš Castle and Levoča a little further. Museum of Bells directly in Šumiac and the Forestry Museum in Čieny Balog are also worth a visit. And, perhaps, the greatest opportunities have cavers - the area is literally pierced by caves and the names, such as the Ice Cave of Dobšiná, the Ochtinska Aragonite Cave, Bystrianska Cave, or a The Cave of Dead Bats made more adventurously accessible, are known to almost everyone. The first visit to our facility will certainly not be enough for visiting a nearby chalet and sheepfold, observing the skills of the local blacksmith, or roasting a lamb or goatling, so be sure to join us in the near future again and again.
Is a listing of activities too tedious? So just sit down on the front yard and count how many cars per day you will hear here, in such a rarely experiencable silence – in that God-abandoned place.
So why not just come to us?
We do not claim that we are the best. But we try to be as close to it as possible...
