“Wildlife Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

Six of us stayed 3 nights at Vinavabrik whilst on a tour of Estonia. We were welcomed on arrival with a warming glass of vodka which seemed very apporpriate for an ex vodka brewery. The situation is wonderful with marsh harriers and other birds flying over the lake and cuckoos in the woods opposite. The staff were very helpful and pleasant and spoke very good English.
The food was good and the accommdation very comfortable and of a high standard. There is also a sauna available and super conference facilities. The owner is a keen photographer and has a display of a collection of his old cameras, some dating back many years.
The whole atmosphere is very relaxing but you do need a car to get around as Tartu, the nearest major town, is half an hours drive away.
A very pleasant experience.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2011

We enjoyed our stay, the room was comfortable and stylish. A typical Nordic buffet breakfast was included in the price. There is a hot drinks machine that is always available (and free for guests). The manager (Minna) speaks English well and the rest of the staff know enough to get by. The atmosphere is very relaxed and Minna spent time helping us arrange our stay.
The guesthouse is a nicely renovated historic building and stands in the grounds of an old manor house and is surrounded by farmland and countryside. There is plenty to see and photograph: plants, butterflies, dragonflies, birds as well as the scenery and a studio was available in case of rain. My wife enjoyed the walks and cycling in the area as well as a relaxing sauna and jacuzzi.
The hamlet is tiny, but there is a small shop and the nearest town is about 20 km away. So a car would have been useful, but we managed with bikes and the bus to Tartu.
