Hotel Vladimir region, Petushinsky district, d. 22-b
The atmospheric Kopiski Manor "Bogdarnya" is a place of revival of the traditions of Russian manor culture and rural life. The hotel is part of the largest Agro-cultural tourist complex in Russia, located in the Vladimir region in the village of Krutovo, just 1.5 hours away by a comfortable electric train from Moscow or 120 km along the M-12 toll highway.
The main building of the Kopiski Estate "Bogdarnya" is a 19th–century manor house made in the classic Russian style, consisting of 20 rooms of 4 categories. The layout of each room is thought out in such a way as to meet the needs of both families with children and creative people looking for inspiration in nature. The rich interior of the Kopiski Estate is filled with authentic objects of Russian manor culture, as well as antique furniture and paintings in the genre of socialist realism. The decoration uses exclusively natural materials that emphasize the ecology of the place. The windows offer a picturesque view of the floodplain of the Klyazma River and the homestead territory. For relaxation, there is a cozy lobby area and a Moroccan lounge where you can read a book over a cup of coffee or gather in the company of family and friends. The estate's infrastructure is complemented by its own restaurant, which hosts chamber events and organizes a la carte breakfasts when booking the entire estate. Special attention is paid to the landscape. Leaving the estate, guests enter the "Crater Garden" with rare species of shrubs and flowers framing the pond, as well as a lake surrounded by century–old oaks in the floodplain of the Klyazma River - a favorite place for hotel guests. The modern landscape of the Kopiski Estate "Bogdarnya" is the fruit of cooperation with the Sepp Holzer Permacultural Center in Russia. "Bogdarnya" is a landfill of loyal agriculture of this center. The complex regularly hosts All-Russian practical seminars on eco-management according to the principles of permaculture.
In the summer of 2023, the Fifth Courtyard building was opened on the territory of the estate with 16 rooms, a separate reception desk, lobby and a game room that can be used as a platform for private events. For those who appreciate a secluded holiday on the lake shore, 2 small houses with their own mini-kitchens and terraces are available for living. A two-storey house with a full kitchen and several bedrooms will also be opened in the near future.
In the central part of the entire estate there is a stylized multifunctional space – the "Collective Farm Club", which includes a restaurant of classical Russian cuisine with two large halls, a concert venue and a panoramic year-round terrace, from the windows of which a picturesque view of the landscape of the territory opens. The club got its name for a reason. The owners of the complex respect the history. That is why the club, located in the building of a former cowshed, contains Soviet-era paraphernalia and real artifacts in the form of a tractor DT-20 of the Kharkiv Tractor Plant, a Maxim machine gun, Soviet-era military telephones, an antique collection of lanterns (from oil to kerosene), original sketches of paintings by the Grekov studio painted during World War II, a UAZ-69 1956 model year – the favorite SUV of all the chairmen of collective farms. It is worth noting that the vehicles have been completely restored and are in working condition.
The restaurant's cuisine menu is represented by native Russian dishes, which are prepared according to old recipes from their own natural farm products – cabbage soup, borscht, ear, skoblyanka, beef stroganoff, berry fruit drinks and many others. Steaks are prepared according to the European technology of dry aging in a certified workshop (meat passes the dry maturation chamber and is cut by hand), and burger patties are made from aged meat (dry age). Cheese occupies a special place in the menu, or rather a lot of cheeses. John's cheeses made on the farm according to the author's recipes are a mandatory item of the program for every guest of the hotel.
Coming to the Kopiski family, the guests become part of rural life, but not the one that is presented in standard stereotypes. This is a place that will allow you to feel the charm of the Russian hinterland, where not only traditions have been preserved, but also a cozy welcoming atmosphere. The owners have made every effort to recreate a real Russian manor, with antique furniture, author's canvases on the walls, a crater garden, a stable, an inn and a hay mowing.
The estate has all the conditions for a good rest not only on weekends, but also for long stays – hiking and hiking along forest trails, picnics in nature, archery and air rifle shooting, quests for children, the intellectual game "60 seconds" for adults and schoolchildren. Own horse yard with a collection of horses of Russian breeds offers horse riding lessons, sleigh rides or in a carriage, acquaintance with the art of triple riding, master classes in modern equestrian sports - driving, as well as hippotherapy procedures. The Russian troika is particularly proud of them, thanks to which the complex became the winner of the National Award for Event Tourism in 2016. After a busy day, guests can use the sauna located in the tower, where a font filled with the purest artesian water, a steam room and a relaxation room are available for relaxation. In the winter of 2024, a spacious sauna complex will open on the territory of the estate, which will be available daily to all guests without prior reservation.
Special attention should be paid to the restaurant under the dome of the tower with a panoramic view of the complex and its surroundings, where private lunches and dinners are organized on request, and painting workshops are held for children.
On the territory of the Kopiski Estate there is also a Museum of peasant and collective farm life. The museum building is a Russian hut with more than a century of history, which was transported from the Arkhangelsk region. The museum has a rare collection of peasant household items from the pre-revolutionary and Soviet periods.
Kopiski manor "Bogdarnya" is a place where rural life is combined with urban comfort, and own natural farm products - with the ecology of the territory.
