Unique house which scouts use for their meetings in countryside. Something different, not like any other. Modest but equipped with everything you need. Located at lake in a rural village, but very close to city Kranj (7 minutes away by car), Ljubljana (20 min), lake Bled (30 min) and Postojna cave (1h). Ideal for somebody traveling by car since it has a central location from where most points of interest are reachable in an hour. Public transportation users read carefully "Other things to note".
This used to be a small farm which scouts have renovated with their own hands to provide space for meetings in countryside. Now we call this house a place for making unforgettable stories. We usually have here scout meetings or scout educational courses. If you also find our house interesting and would like to make your own unforgettable story, then you’re welcome to stay at us when we don't have activities, especially if you are or used to be a member of the scout movement or if you just like modest accommodations like ours. What you pay to the Arbnb we take as a donation just to cover the expenses connected with your stay. You can suggest different donation, especially if you’re scouts on your scout camp.
When we've renovated the house we've made a compromise between keeping the original old traditional look (for instance wooden floors, wood-burning stoves, traditionally decorated walls in ground floor and brick walls in the attic) with all the necessary modern amenities. On one hand that allows us to organize all sorts of scout activities, but on the other hand still in a traditional scout way.
There are 12 beds in the house (one double bed, 3 bunks, 4 single beds). One couple can also sleep on a double size air bed. If there are more guests they can sleep on their personal mattresses or we can lend ours.
As you can see from the photos there are Christian religious symbols and pictures in the house but we respect and welcome under our roof people of all faiths and believes.
Whole house is at your service, that means:
- living room,
- 2 bedrooms, one in ground floor, one in the attic,
- big multi purpose room in the attic,
- terrace in the attic,
- storage in the basement and
- a whole backyard.
In the backyard we have a lot of garden furniture with seats, benches, tables, umbrelas, swings for children, badminton net with a pair of rackets and a charcoal grill for barbecue.
Additionally you can make yourselves a picnic and/or camp fire in our meadow at the wood edge 800 m away from the house.

If you are scouts and would wish to stay here during your camp time we'll make a special agreement.
If you decide to come by car there's place for up to 3 cars in front of the house.
If you travel with public transportation you have to be aware that Slovenian villages aren’t as well connected with public bus services as are the cities. From Monday to Friday public bus connects Trboje with Kranj 7 times per day. In Kranj the same bus stops at main bus and at main train station, too. Bus ticket costs 1,8 €/person. On weekends there are no buses. Bus station in Trboje is 50 m from the house.
Trboje doesn’t have a direct connection with Ljubljana. You’d firstly have to go by bus to Kranj and from there with public buses or trains anywhere you wish to go. Kranj is connected very well with all other cities and directions.
So let's stress that the location is mostly suitable for somebody with a car or in case you’re planning to have an easy weekend with resting and attending just local activities.
You must be aware that the house lies in center of the quiet, rural village and it isn't suitable for parties or loud music etc. During the day you'll hear cows, tractors and church bells (the church stands 200 m away from the house and it starts ringing at 7:00), but in the evening the village becomes very quiet since people and animals need good night rest. That means you too have to turn down your noise volume after 22:00, go inside the house or make a picnic at the camp fire place in the meadow outside the village. Or you can go to one of three pubs in the village as well. One of them is very nice. It's actually a boathouse where you can also rent a rowing boat or SUP or play beach volley. There's a terrace at the lake, very close to the house, where you can watch birds or you can take a nice walk around the countryside. 5 km from the house there are ruins of old castle Smlednik. During the day there's a nice view from the top of the hill, and during the night it gets fairy like in an old fairytale. Location of the village is also very suitable for different activities in the region. There's only 15 km to the best known Slovenian ski centre Krvavec, 35 km to Slovenian natural pearl lake Bled, 15 km to our capital Ljubljana and only 5 km to city Kranj where you have everything that city usually offers like shopping centres, cinemas, lot of different bars and restaurants, sport infrastructure, swimming pools etc. The main Slovenian airport - Jožeta Pučnika Ljubljana - is only 8 km away.
Smoking inside the house is forbidden but you can smoke outside.
The most important house rule is to lower your voice after 22:00 (10 PM) and not be to loud during the day because the house lies in center of the village. That's why it isn't suitable for parties.
Act polite to the neighbours so the scouts won't get a bad reputation. You'll leave but we'll stay and have to face what you've left behind.
We don't walk with shoes in the house. Don't worry if you don't have your own slippers. There are lots of them to borrow in the lobby.
Pets are allowed but owners must clean after them.
Check in is usually after 15:00 and check out before 12:00, but we are flexible as much as it's possible.
We expect from guests to leave the house in the way they've got it.
