The Novak Lodge is much more than what Americans call a Bed & Breakfast. I learned so much about cooking and foraging. Miriam has a special relationship with plants as food and medicine. I only wish I had more days to go foraging with her and really learn about the local flora. The Novak Lodge is inviting, clean, rustic and... More

Thanks to other TripAdvisor reviews, we booked this inn for the 2 nights during our recent trip. The only complaint is that I wish we could have stayed longer. Boris and Miriam are the perfect hosts. The inn is perfectly appointed, comfortable and spotless and located in a beautiful little valley. It is within easy driving distance of some must... More

We spent unforgettable four days in a friendly environment of Domacja Novak at the beginning of May. Even though our main objects of the holiday-break were hiking and fishing, thanks to Miriam and Boris´ cuisine our stay became a gastronomic paradise. We appreciated not only inventiveness of meals but mainly quality freshness and the organic origin of all ingredients. It... More

Our party of six recently had the good fortune to spend three days at Domacija Novak, and felt it was the highlight of our trip to Slovenia. The Novak family members are warm and attentive hosts, the accommodations are immaculate and well-appointed, and the food and wine exceptional. Miriam sets a wonderful table, with an emphasis on organic, locally grown... More

Domacija Novak is located in a lovely building, very nicely furnished throughout. Our room was simple, but attention had been paid to the little things that really matter, such as insect screens on the windows and nice fabrics. The village, Savinja, is on a terrace above the river, on the side of the valley that catches the evening sun, with... More

My family and I enjoyed a trip to Slovenia in 2007 to meet some long lost family members. During our travels, we heard about Boris' restaurant and decided to make the trip to it for a meal. We had the dining room all to ourselves and enjoyed the most delicious, interesting, and memorable meal ever. We are a family of... More

Situated in a small, peaceful village overlooking the Krka river valley...this lovingly restored B&B has it all: great food, wine, rooms, conversation, and of course- exceptional hosts! The Novak family makes you feel right at home and the location serves as a great jumping off point to go hiking, sightseeing, fishing, or nothing it all! If you like to fly... More

On a fishing trip with a friend we stopped into Domacija Novak with the intent to stay one night-- perhaps two-- whilst fishing the nearby streams. Well, we enjoyed it so much we stayed for three nights and would have gladly stayed a week. The proprietors, Boris and Miriam Novak and family are superb hosts, very friendly, knowledgeable and talented.... More

The place was close to perfect in terms of experiencing local food, wine, accommodation and hospitability. Boris and Miriam simply made our one night stay in Dvor a highlight of the whole trip in Slovenia. Just be sure to ask the wine price rates before diving into the cellar :)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You have probably forgotten what are mornings in the countryside like? Peace, quiet, fresh air, a rooster crowing or a tractor humming in the distance, smell of freshly cut grass. Leisure, tranquility, a firm bed, downy covers … the time stops. You will suddenly find yourself thinking; »How about staying for another day or two?«We cook for all, both for us and for our guests. You will eat as though you are staying at our place as our guests, which you actually are. We will offer you smoked trout, game dishes, mushrooms or pumpkin soup in the autumn, side dishes made of fresh herbs and fruit goodies or grandma’s strudel for desert in the summer. Therefore, food from the home garden, the nearby forest or from the Krka River. There is always enough fresh white, rye or buckwheat bread. ... more   less
