Our Guesthouses date back to the 18th, 19th and 20th century. With the always changing need of history the buildings fulfilled different purposes in course of time. Today four houses are available for bookings.
At the beginning the building served as headquarter for personal and maintenance. It housed the water pumps, generators and it had only one floor. Later, Klementina, the wife of Ármin Mikes and sister of István Bethlen prime minister of Hungary, extended the building and weaving machines for the family's baize production were set up on the 1st floor. Therefore, it is called The Machine House.
After being nationalised the Machine House housed workshops, laundry and offices.
Nowadays we gave it a completely new destination. This was the first building in which after the fall of communism the first guesthouse of the family was set up.
