Rules for Staying at Narbuli Retreat House
Our house is built for solitude, peace, and self-reflection. All of our rules are aimed at supporting and maintaining an ideal atmosphere suited to these goals. Additionally, there are a number of village rules that ensure the comfort and privacy of residents.
- We only accept adult guests without children or pets.
- From 10:00pm to 8:00am, the village rules require complete silence.
- At other times, loud conversations, singing, playing musical instruments, and other noisy activities are only allowed inside the house, behind closed doors and windows.
- Smoking is strictly prohibited inside the house and on the terraces, including the use of IQOS and e-cigarettes. If you smoke, there is a designated smoking area outside the house.
- Drones can only be launched with the permission of the homeowners.
- You will be responsible for washing your own dishes, making your bed, changing towels, sorting the trash, and keeping things tidy in the part of the house where you will be staying.
- You will have access to a fully-equipped kitchen with a stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, and a small supply of groceries, including salt, sugar, vegetable oil, coffee, and packaged tea, as well as all the necessary cleaning supplies.
- You can only use the kitchen and living room that are connected to your room. All other rooms are locked and have an alarm system in place.
- You are allowed to use the sauna and can then immediately jump into the lake. Robes, sheets, and felt hats are all provided in the sauna.
- In the practice room, mats and pillows can be used for yoga or meditation. At the dock, guests have access to a boat. In the yard, a bicycle is available.
- The house has free and unlimited Wi-Fi, books, pencils, paper, and other supplies.
WALKS AND ACTIVITIES
- You are not allowed to enter the territory of other houses, approach them closely, or go past “Private” signs. However, most of the paths, trails, and bridges across the lakes in the village are open to residents and guests. The surrounding forests are open to everyone and are full of berries and mushrooms.
- There is a small artificial pond on the property with fish. Whilst you are welcome to feed the fish (preferably in the evenings, as they are accustomed to this), please note that fishing and swimming in this pond is not permitted.
- During the winter months, when the ice is thick enough, guests can walk on the lakes or go cross-country skiing. During the summer months, guests can take out the boat, which is moored near the house, and enjoy the lake.
- The area around the large lake is designed to ensure privacy, so guests may swim without a swimsuit if they wish. However, please note that swimming is at your own risk, and there is no lifeguard on duty.
- Guests are welcome to catch fish in the large lake using either a fishing rod or a spinning reel. Please note that fishing equipment is not provided, so guests must bring their own.
