Private rooms "Herta" - rooms with a view!

   The house is located in the village Dorotowo in the middle of the Masurian landscape in the northeast of Poland. The landscape is dominated by countless lakes, gentle hills and extensive wooded areas.
The village is located 12 km south of Olsztyn (160 000 inhabitants) and 200 km north of Warszawa. From Gdańsk it's about 180 km.
There are shops, restaurants and a church in the village. 4 km from Dorotowo there's a golf course.

   Olsztyn is the largest town in the region. The settlement that sheltered behind the castle walls was granted its municipal charter in 1353. The castle still survives and today serves as a museum. Between 1516 and 1521 the brilliant astronomer Nicholas Copernicus worked here as an administrator for his uncle, the then bishop of Warmia.
After the First Partition in 1772 Olsztyn, like the rest of Warmia, fell under Prussian rule.
The Old Town, largely destroyed by the Red Army in 1945, is rebuild. It's not a faithfull reconstruction, but there are some original buildings there. Olsztyn's most prized buildings are the late-Gothic St James' Church, the High Gate (Wysoka Brama) and the castle.
Several lakes, which offer bathing beaches, surround the town.

    The house lies by the lake Wulpinskie (Tomaszkowskie) 730,3 ha. The lake 8,3 km long, 2,3 km broad and 54,5 m deep. There are 7 islands, the biggest one is called Herta and can be seen from the house.
