Weekend Escape: A Room in a Prussian Lodge

Julie Carlson October 10, 2013

Named for the water ferns that grow along the Vistula River, Salvinia Lodge is located on the Vistula Spit in Poland, a Baltic coast resort area 30 kilometers from Gdansk. Built in 1789, the timber-framed lodge is one of the oldest surviving arcaded houses in the region. The interior has been modernized and features a mix of new and old furniture, with modern baths and kitchen. Three guest suites await. Visit Salvinia Lodge for more information.

Above: The house is located in the flats of the Weichsel river delta, between Gdansk, the Malbork Castle, and Masuria–and not far from the white beaches of the Baltic.
