Your manual for uninterrupted stay

Hytta is a place for your undisturbed thinking, creation and dreaming.

At Hytta, we believe that when one is fully focused, time begins to flow differently. And then extraordinary things happen.

We designed the cabin to be the ideal place for deep work and reflection, allowing you to delve into the things that matter to you.

Daydream and get lost in your own thoughts.

People go to remote places to think. Above themselves, above the world, above what they really want.

It is up to you what you will dream and think about in the Hytta.

We are glad you are here. Thank you

Chytré ovětlení
Smart lighting

The cabin is equipped with smart biodynamic lights, thanks to which you can create a unique atmosphere day and night. So that you can fall asleep better at the end of the day and get a quality rest, the lights automatically adapt to the sunlight and do not contain blue radiation after dark.

How to control the lights?

  • You can control all the lights with push button switches. Press to turn the light off and on, hold to change the intensity.

  • You can also control the lights on a tablet in the library. On the desktop you will find the Hytty icon, after opening it you will get to the control panel.

  • You can select any room in the panel and then control the lights collectively or individually.

  • You can adjust the intensity and color on the color scale.

  • As the sun sets, the lights automatically begin to turn a warm yellow to orange. In the morning at sunrise, the opposite process takes place. 

  • Reading lamps and outdoor lights cannot be adjusted for intensity or color.

How to properly heat in a stove

The cabin is heated using an Iron Dog cast iron stove. We make a fire in the stove in the so-called Scandinavian way, which consists in different layering of wood and chips. By underlaying the chips with larger logs, you will achieve an elevation of the fire closer to the chimney, thanks to which the flue will heat up earlier. This way, the chimney catches a better draft and the risk of smoke going into the cottage is reduced. For example, you can find more information in this article.

Before starting the fire, read the quick guide:

  1. To make a fire, we have prepared dry wood, chips, matches, a lighter and a special heat-resistant glove in Hytta.

  2. Make sure the hood is turned off, otherwise the smoke from the stove will go inside the cabin.

  3. First put 3-4 layers of larger dry logs in the stove.

  4. Put crumpled paper, a lighter on the logs and then stack the chips (see picture).

  5. Make sure that the flue from the stove to the chimney is open, i.e. the lever is parallel to the pipe.

  6. Light the paper, close the door and open the air supply to maximum. You can find the air supply regulation under the glass door - metal rod - pull out as much as possible. The air supply has 3 positions.

  7. Add to the stove regularly. Always insert the wood as far as possible from the glass door to prevent the glass from fogging.

  8. If you run out of pre-prepared wood, you can bring more in a basket, which you will find behind the cottage. The ax is hidden among the logs.

Preparing coffee
Příprava kávy

At Hytta, we love good coffee. Drinking coffee is a ritual for us. Coffee helps us create a pleasant atmosphere and concentrate on things that are important to us. So that you can prepare delicious coffee, we have equipped the Hytta with a quality grinder, a filter coffee machine, a moka pot and a French press. We always have two types of fresh coffee for you from the local Lázeňská coffee roaster.

How to properly grind coffee beans:

  1. Turn the grinder on and off with the rotary button on the right side.

  2. Before setting the grinding coarseness, the grinder must be completely empty or switched ON. Otherwise, there is a risk of the grain getting stuck in the grinding stones and damaging the grinder.

  3. Adjust the grinding coarseness according to the coffee preparation method. You can adjust the coarseness by turning the top container with the coffee beans.

  4. Everyone tastes coffee a little differently. If you need advice, we recommend 60 g per 1 liter of coffee or 8 g per cup. The plastic measuring cup corresponds to the volume of two cups of coffee.

French Press

Instructions for use of the coffee machine

  1. STEP 1: Turn the coffee maker OFF ( A ). Attach the arm with nine holes ( B ). Pour in the appropriate amount of cold, fresh water and replace the lid ( C ).

  2. STEP 2: Place the gold filter in the filter basket ( D ) and pour the appropriate volume of ground coffee.

  3. STEP 3: Place the filter basket in place ( D ) and replace the lid ( E ). Place the glass kettle on the heating base ( G ).

  4. STEP 4: Choose mode ( H ) according to the amount of coffee being prepared. Turn the coffee maker ON ( A ). The hot plate under the glass kettle keeps the coffee warm for 40 minutes and then switches off. If the kettle is empty, switch off the coffee maker manually.


With the mode for smaller amounts of coffee, the water flows more slowly and the coffee is extracted longer for a more intense taste. We also recommend this mode for preparing decaffeinated coffee. Of course, you can also use this mode for larger amounts of coffee.
