Kesk tänav 119, Varnja alevik, Peipsiääre vald, Tartu maakond
Mesi Tare Home Accommodation offers a unique opportunity to stay the night in a traditional Old-Believer home in Varnja Village of Old Believers by Lake Peipus (Peipsi).
Our guests can stay in an authentic house with a courtyard. We call ourselves a home accommodation because this is what we offer our visitors – a homely atmosphere and a chance to experience the way of life of Old Believers as it has been for about a century – peace, quiet, and no indoor plumbing.
Boats and bicycles are available for rental, as are Finnish, plastic, tent and smoke saunas; we also have a bathing barrel. A beach awaits swimmers in the summer, and during the winter, fishermen can drive on the lake in large-wheeled cars called "karakatitsa".
Is open advance bookings only
