  1. Spacious and comfortable

    The Merak Country house is spacious and comfortable. The house and its furnishings all seem to be very new. It was the first time after many nights in Katuns (check them out and consider staying in some of them; hut-to-hut farmstays are so unique!) that I could recharge devices and connect to Wi-Fi. These are nice accommodations in a very interesting part of Montenegro; culture, architecture, and the daily rhythm of life including sharing the main road with cattle and sheep in the morning and evenings. A trip to Ali Pasina Izvor is worth the short drive, especially early evening as the sheep and cattle are returned across the bridges to the farm and the lighting rapidly changes. We used this as a strategic multi-day stay for fly fishing on the Lim with Oki as our guide and for hiking to Gipfel Volušnica (1876m asl) in Prokletije National Park

  2. Merak House is clean, modern, comfortable.

    We recently stayed at the Merak House with our family of 6 and my husband’s parents. This region of Montenegro is so beautiful, and this location is perfect for exploring. Part of our group went fly fishing through Meanderbug (super experience!) and the rest hiked. The house was clean, modern, and comfortable. The host is so kind and accommodating. We booked dinner for one of our 2 evenings, and it was delicious.
