Mihaela Lake Retreat is environmentally friendly accommodation in the heart of Eastern Rhodope Mountains. The cottage is well equipped and spacious, located in a beautiful rural setting 20 min from Kardzhali. Both traditional and comfortable, this cottage is perched on top of the village with magnificent view at the lake Studen kladenets. Nature routes and outdoor activities start from the door of your lake retreat. Oak forest just behind the cottage is home to fallow deer, beech marten, land tortoise, as well as various rare birds like Sparrowhawk & Masked Shrike. Studen kladenets is declared an Important Bird Area where nature lovers can observe Egyptian and Griffon vulture, long-legged Buzzard & black stork. The perfect bird watching holiday and ideal rural getaway. Mihaela Lake Retreat is great spot to explore local cuisine - the food comes from local farms and meals are freshly cooked with natural ingredients. English speaking and friendly hosts, local maps & guidebooks.

We've spent a wonderful time in Mihaela and Vassil's place, enjoying their nice company and care. All that, of course, with the wonderful scenery around us. We were three small families, in early spring - the entire house was so clean and cozy. Will definitely go there again soon!

Mihaela's house is a wonderful place to stay and enjoy the spirit of Rhodope mountains (delicious food and amazing nature)! We have done so many things in just a few days - hiking, biking, kayaking and gourmet! We were so lucky to see the European cat snake up in Yumruk skala protected area, which is one of the rear type of snakes that you can see in Bulgaria. Another exciting moment for us up there was to stay just a few meters away from Griffon vulture and to watch them enjoying their sunset flight over the Studen Kladenets lake. Mihaelas house is located very close and exactly on the hiking trail, so we' were able to get home right before darkness. Spatial delicious diner was waiting us on the table ๐Ÿ˜Š! We spent such a great time!

Mihaela Lake Retreat is offering a truly unique holiday. The accommodation works like a guest house where you are looked after by the host and spoilt with fresh home made food at breakfast. Its a combination of self-catering and sharing the space with few other guests and the hosts themselves. The place is clean, the beds are comfy and the shower is very good. This is the place where you can retreat from the hassle of life if you seek peace and solitude. However, you can also make friends with the other guests who most likely turn out to be like-minded travellers. Moreover, its the philosophy of the hosts and the whole place which makes it so unique. You can enjoy sustainable tourism; Mihaela also offers kayaks and bikes for rent and you can if you like take a guided tour round the lake or the mountains. Mihaela is always around for travel tips and support if you chose her advice. The place is ideally suited to explore the Eastern Rhodope mountains, lake and archaeological sites.โ€ฆ

Very beautiful place, grand View. Cozy house, filled with books, WiFi and TV set. Big kitchen. Nice two stories and a balcony. There is a local shop in the village where you can buy food and provisions. Warm nature. I recommend!
