Samel’s Cottage in Prokletije National Park – Montenegro

A key structure in the redeveloping Bajrovic Katun inside Prokletije National Park. Nature, adventure, rest, and national foods in abundance...

Prokletije National Park holds out great adventures for mountain bikers, hikers, and nature lovers. The area now offers local culture with stays in a Montengrin katun too. These mountain huts, usually grouped together for community, are a unique part of the Montenegrin culture where shepherds would sleep during the summer months. While this is still the case for some katuns, others can be a memorable get-away for adventurers of all sizes. Samel’s Cottage in Prokletije National Park offers a perfect night or extended stay for MTB and hiking groups.

Ermina puts on a clinic when it comes to national foods. We were stuffed when we finished at her table. You will be too. It’s all delicious–especially the national cakes that she bakes. With a huge desire to provide great hospitality to all that stay at Samel’s Cottage, she insists that breakfast is included with a night’s stay. You can get your calories in before heading out to massive adventure all around.

Located inside the rugged Prokletije National Park, Samel’s Cottage works for those taking the Peaks of the Balkans route or for day outings to any of the surrounding peaks as well as the local favorite but still largely undiscovered Hridsko Lake. You will definitely want to add that spot to your do-not-miss list.

  1. Heaven on Prokletije

    I absolutely loved staying here. Surrounded by the Prokletije mountains, this vacation spot looks like paradise. The outdoor eating gazebo is genius as it allows you to see 360 degrees of nature while enjoying hearty mountain meals. It was also cool to get a real glimpse of pasture life. The cows roam the hilly area surrounding the cabin, and the hosts at this cabin will gladly accommodate guests who want to come inside the barn and help during milking time. As part of a group with three younger children, the cows and barn became pretty popular attractions. I loved this experience because of how close it brought me and my family to the mountain environment. If vacationing in Montenegro, definitely drop by this spot of heaven for a stay or at least for a cup of coffee and a piece of their great cheese pie.

  2. Can't get enough of the beautiful views, hikes and new foods.

    I’m ruined for traditional, commercialized travel. I can’t get enough of the beautiful views, hikes and new foods to taste. Our stay here was fantastic. The kids had plenty of room to run free and explore nature. The hike to the lake was breathtaking. What woman can’t argue with not having to cook or sacrificing the use of a bathroom while still experiencing nature at it’s finest?
