“I love this place. We visited this place for the third time and we are coming back for sure. We booked whole penzion Skerda as we were 25 people. I celebrated my birthday there and it was the best choice for us. The place have many rooms, every room has its own small kitchen and bathroom. Some of the rooms are double-rooms or apartments – so two rooms + kitchen + bathroom. The place is very clean, nice-furnished. THere is also one additional room – living room with fireplace, bigger kitchen and tables and chairs for whole building, so we could all be together. Near to the building is another building with grill. It is situated in the heart of Zuberec, you can park in front of the building without any problems. The owners are really nice and friendly. Nothing bad to say. We will come back soon !“

“The accommodation enjoys a lavish, picturesque location in a truly relaxing environment. It has a design and equipment to meet all needs. There are many natural attractions in the area, with fabulous hiking opportunities everywhere. The owners are kind and helpful. Upon arrival, they were greeted us with a welcome drink and treated with excursion ideas.
We had been here for the first time, but definitely return to discover the beauties of the landscape from here and spend a few pleasant days here in the tranquility of the mountains.
We were maximally satisfied, with a good heart I recommend it to everyone, in any season.“

"I have never been in such a beautiful place as the Škerda guesthouse in Zuberec! I didn't want to leave! The cottage is excellently equipped, the owners are incredibly hospitable and helpful, and I will definitely come back to this place, because what is good should be repeated more often. Thank you for a wonderful stay."

Mária Stefak

"The cosy rooms of this beautifully furnished, clean and fragrant guesthouse will make you feel like at home 💛 The large terrace with seating and sun loungers is great, the spacious lounge with fireplace and games room awesome, but the absolute best is the outdoor area with a large gazebo with several barbecues and indoor and also outdoor seating by the stream. That's for us adults. For the kids, there's a playground and a large grassy area to run around. Easy parking. Lovely hosts who can help with everything. Anywhere you can get within walking distance, restaurants, candy stores, hiking, all close by yet quiet and private. Great place 😁"


"I have to say that this cottage was the most amazing cottage we have been to, it has a great location, beautiful surroundings, which is quiet, clean, and you can just feel the warmth of home there..for all of us it was great :) and we will definitely come back."


„We had a company event in this guesthouse. I have to say, that we have not come across such friendly and kind owners in a very long time (if ever) - any request was immediately dealt with. Of course, the property itself is in beautiful surroundings, excellently equipped and the rooms are in beautiful Tyrolean style...and you still leave with the feeling that the owners are actually friends.“
