  1. Great horseback family adventure!

    We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Dedushi home with our family of 6. Our kids range from 4 years old to 11. We added dinner each evening and a 1/2 day of horseback riding. The Dedushi home is clean, comfortable, and simple, and the family is warm and lovely. The parents in the home doted on our kids and treated them like grandchildren.
    Horseback riding: The horseback riding was slow and steady and a real treat for my kids who haven’t had the experiance before. Two guides took us out on a beautiful route for 4 hours, accomodating kids (and adults on traditional wooden saddles) who wanted to take breaks along and play.
    Food: I think we are still full. We had goulash and other hearty pots of yummy home cooking for our dinners. The food was great, and we loved hiking all day and returning to a hot meal waiting. Each breakfast and dinner was ready at the agreed upon time – delicious, warm, abundant, and definitely farm-to-table.
    I love that meanderbug helped us have access to this family and experience that was fun, authentic, and restful. Meanderbug and our host helped us find 3 days of gorgeous hikes appropriate for our family. We hiked to Blue Eye spring (Oko Skakavice), an easy hike from the Dedushi home. We drove to Ali Pasha springs and hiked up the hill behind it as well as along the spring itself. On our last day we drove to the Valušnica River inside the Proklejte National Park, and hiked along the river. This was a perfect spot for letting our kids play in a creek till their hearts were content.

  2. Untouched, clean nature!

    We’ve lived in the Balkans for 10 years and this is the most untouched, clean nature we’ve seen so far. Sorry we didn’t visit sooner, we’ll be back for a longer stay next time.

  3. Great Hiking Base!

    This is a beautiful place to stay and a great base for hiking. The nearby waterfalls are stunning and there is a convenient bar and restaurant if you want to go somewhere different. We took a half-day horse riding with two young children, which was good fun. If the weather had been better, we would have enjoyed staying longer and doing some more walking. The national park is amazing.

  4. Stunning views

    Came here for a retreat up north with my friends. It was absolutely gorgeous- the house sits with a stunning view of the mountains and so close! Really enjoyed the horseback riding through the mountains. The food was yummy too.
