We stayed only one night at this lovely accommodation but wish that we had stayed longer. The Novaks were incredibly friendly and generous hosts. We had a fabulous stay with delicious dinner and breakfast included. We were given wine all evening with our dinner and even got to meet the wine maker. This place is a bit out of the... More

I would definitely recommend sleeping in the haybarn! Next to that, if you have the chance, don't hesitate eating dinner with the family ==> best meat ever The breakfast contains local products and products from their own garden, so it's all fresh! Had a great time there!

We only stayed one night here on the way back to Germany, but I wish we could stay more (possibly with a different weather). Rooms are large, well furnished (our also with a beautiful old chest of drawers) and spotless clean, "ensuite" bathroom is also more than adeguate to the category. I found Novak family freindly, relaxed and a good... More

A true gem of an inn, the Novaks were amazing hosts. From the rustic, comfortable rooms, the country setting, the orange-tinted Slovenian wine, and absolutely delicious food... no one in our family wanted to leave this place. If you ever want a true "getaway from the real world" kind of trip, this is it. One of our best experiences in... More

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
