Awards and accolades

Kania Lodge is a regular winner of international awards and commendations and has near perfect ratings on traveler feedback sites like Trip Advisor. But we are not resting on our laurels and each year we find ways to make the lodge just that little bit better. Here’s some of the accolades we have received recently.

Magical place on the beautiful White Lake in Kaszubia. Quiet, pristine surroundings. Each suite has its own character. Great food. Exceptional wine list.

The White Lake

If you’d like to know more about Kania Lodge before you arrive, read The White Lake, a memoir of 20 years in Poland by owner John Borrell. A former foreign correspondent with Time Magazine, John writes movingly about building the lodge, making wine and creating an international vodka brand. The book is also available in Polish as Nad Jeziorem Białym.

The vineyard

Yes, we also make our own wine from grapes grown in the Kania Lodge vineyard. Whimsically, we call the wine Big John. We’ve six varieties of French/American hybrids which are frost resistant to minus 30 C. We open a bottle at weekends and guests are welcome to taste it. We are currently serving a 2014 vintage blend aged with French oak for 12 months. It’s not bad!

One of the world’s best wine lists

We’ve more than 250 wines on our current list, including more than 20 by the glass. They are from exceptional wineries throughout the world, all of which we have visited during the selection process. We’ll pair wine with food for you and offer tastings for groups.

Vestal Vodka
