“Paradise in the middle of nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Hosts are a loving and cheerful family, eager to share this love and cheerfulness with their guests. Rooms are nice, at least ours had a private bathroom. Food is great, every meal meant around 12 different dishes and great homemade wine. Maya and her husband are really nice people that really want you to feel in their guesthouse like at home - and we definitely did, we felt like a part of their family. They prefer to communicate in Russian, but they are very determined to communicate also in English. Two lovely Tikos speak English. Tikos and Nugzari the artist can dance traditional Georgian dances and are willing to teach you some steps. Last but not least - Miki the smiling dog! If you visit Aitsuradzes, do not hesitate to ask them to show you a leaflet with a wonderful portrait of Maya and Miki.
Maybe the place is not the cheapest for travellers on a budget, but definitely worth its price. You can stay at the guesthouse and relax in a garden full of fruits or enjoy youtube parties with the hosts. Although Atskuri seems to be in the middle of nowhere, if you want to go hiking, an entrance to Borjomi National Park is just 1,5 km away, there are also some impressing ruins in the village. Atskuri is also a good starting point to other interesting places - we got really fast to Wardzi and Rabati.
We will definitely come back next year!

The guest house has very good facilities a beautiful garden with many fruit trees but what makes it unique and special are the owner (mia) and her family , she is one of the warmest and nice people we ever met, add to this a very warm hospitality with great food (Dinner includes numerous dishes + wine , then fruits and cake with tea and coffee and then some more sweets and a glass of wine or a glass of local brandy ...), and the ability to meet and talk with someone who is really interested in you not just as a walking wallet, sit with them in their living room and feel welcome.
Also worth nothing mia husband is the director of the national park and the owner of 7 horses, you can hire to travel in the park...

to sum up this place was one of the highlight of our visit and I am very happy we stayed there

A highlight of the trip was to stay with one of the very first local business partners of the Borjomi Kharaguali National Park – Guesthouse Nick and George, in the village of Atskuri on the edge of the national park. Arriving was an emotional time – it felt like returning to family. A simple clean comfortable house surrounded by a wonderfully productive garden and with a delightful outside kitchen – it is an oasis of serenity.
Maia, our host, is an excellent cook, preparing tasty Georgian dishes with ingredients from her garden and the village. The bread and khatcharpuri are cooked in a traditional Georgian bread oven, the smooth but potent wine comes from her vines and is made in the ancient Georgian way in a qvevri in the ground, refreshing fresh cherry juice is served in PAN Parks branded glasses and accompanies the tender shashlik grilled over charcoal. The small table is completely covered in plates and bowls, and just when you think it is safe to think the feast is over, another tantalising dish appears.
After dinner, you can stroll around this small mountain village in the company of Mickey the smiling dog. Everyone you meet will greet you with genuine warmth and amusement at the few words of badly pronounced Georgian you respond with.
Nick and George’s is an excellent base for trekking – in fact you can ride horses belonging to the family up along one of the trails and spend a night high in the hills in a tourism shelter belonging to the park. Sadly on this trip we did not have time.
Maia (originally trained as a lawyer in Moscow) is very proud of her quality of life and sharing it with guests, her hospitality is as huge as her heart and chances are you will arrive as a guest and leave as a friend. When we came to depart, both my wife and myself had tears running down our cheeks as we drove back on to the main road to travel to our next magical destination.
Many people I speak to ask if Georgia is safe - the only danger is that you will leave a part of your heart and soul there and be constantly drawn back.

I found this place somewhere in the internet but didn't make a reservation because I wasn't sure of my itinerary. We arrived there when it was already dark. The place is located a bit further from the main road so we had to ask directions a couple of times, around the house were no lights and the thing didn't look promising at all. Until the host came out and turned on the lights. It turned out to be an absolutely lovely place, with spacious rooms, loads of delicious food with no advance notice and super-friendly host and hostess. They also offer hikes and horse riding in Borjomi-Khargauli national park (the village in on the edge of the park) and have a sauna. Unfortunately we were not able to try all of that because it was heavily raining the next day but I'll sure be going back.
