We stayed 2 nights during our vacation to South Korea. From Andong bus station, you can take a bus or a taxi cab. It's a good distance from city center. In the Folk Village, centrally located, almost up front. There is a shuttle that will drop you but it is a good ways from the house. Our cab had a... More

There's no better way to experience the real traditional Korean culture than staying a night or two at this lovely, historical house. The owner, Mr. Ryu, personally welcomed us, and gave us a tour of his house. The stay was definitely the highlight of our trip. Mr Ryu even went out of his way to help us resolved an unfortunate...

Serenity is the key word for a stay in Bukchondaek. My wife and I stayed in this piece of well preserved history for 2 nights from the 26th to the 28th of December 2014. As pictures and comments have been, this sprawling house is straight out of a postcard even in the bitter cold December winter. We were put up... More

We had a great time at Bukchondaek. Perfect atmosphere, we especially appreciated the tour of the stunning complex by the owner Mr. Ryu, who is proud of the house beeing in his family for the 9th generation now. The food was delicious too. The original rooms of this UNESCO-Gem are heated by a traditional system with burning wood from underneath.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here last weekend. We paid 200,000W total for one night (100,000W each). It is right in the middle of the folk village and a very nice house, if not the nicest. It is very true that the owner does not speak any English. Luckily, my boyfriend and I can speak the basics, so we were... More
