This inn on the outskirts of Micloșoara, a charming town about 45 minutes north of Brașov, comprises 10 accommodations that are distributed among several whitewashed houses and carefully restored farm buildings, some that date to the 1800s. These guesthouses are the project of Count Tibor Kálnoky, his goal being to create a new type of rural tourism that offers work to the locals, preserves Transylvania’s natural and historical heritage, and offers an authentic and intimate experience of the region to visitors. Comfortable accommodations are furnished with antique wooden beds, tiled woodburning furnaces and locally woven rugs on wooden floors, but lack telephones, televisions and Wi-Fi, a personal decision by the count, who hopes his guests will disconnect from the rest of the world to become deeply engaged with the region. Public spaces at the hotel include an antiques-furnished salon and an atmospheric dining room in the main house’s wine cellar, where meals are served family style at communal tables. Of the number of excellent excursions offered, the two most worthwhile are “The Land of the Szeklers” tour and the “Horse and Cart Ride.” Other amenities at the property include a billiards room and a sauna.
