If sustainability is your lifestyle, we have a place that will be a balm for your soul.

The result of their work is a truly unique experience for anyone who spends at least a few nights in the KEBIN. The place is perfect for recharging, especially thanks to the amazing panoramic views of the Hejlovský Pond and the absolute, all-encompassing serenity.

The surrounding pond is great for all kinds of water activities and it's only up to you if you choose paddleboarding or a boat ride. And to get to the island? A bit unusually – on a wooden raft!

The trip through the forest will nicely prepare you for what lies ahead – adventure with luxury right on the boundary of a quarry. As soon as you walk through the wooden gate, a breathtaking panorama of a granite quarry with a floating sauna and cosy cabin opens in front of you. Welcome and enjoy the Hidden Retreat, a quarry that is all yours. It might be just temporary but having this beautiful place all to yourselves – even just for a while – is a great feeling. Besides the quarry, you'll also enjoy the private floating sauna on the water surface. You can relax in the wood-heated cedar tub with hot water and when evening comes, grill something good on the terrace with a view of the beautiful countryside.

Many of us complain of not having enough space at home. Where to put the bed and the wardrobe; how big should the kitchen be? A group of enthusiasts took the challenge of dealing with a lack of space and figured out what the minimum space one needs to live in a tiny house is. And what can you do in the Tiny House Done? Loll around and relax. Snuggle up in the duvets and watch the outside world through the windows that make up a whole wall of the house. You might get lucky and see a deer or a hopping hare. The rising sun will wake you up in the morning and even the chirping birds if you leave the window open through the night. And if you don't want to just relax all day long (we believe there are some people like that), go outside. The Tiny House is in Smržovka in the Jizera Mountains and there are plenty of opportunities for trips.
