Kania Lodge serves fine food stylishly but unpretentiously. The business daily Puls Biznesu recently gave us more than 90 points for our food, wine and service. Using fresh, locally purchased meat, fish and vegetables, including our own home-reared lamb, we prepare interesting, innovative food inspired by world-wide travel and a good understanding of the best of Polish cuisine.

Amongst the favourite dishes are roast lamb prepared in the traditional New Zealand style, duck breast with home grown quince, and chicken provencale with Kaszubian mushrooms. Non-residents are welcome to dine with us but to ensure that we are able to serve the fresh, interesting food on which our reputation is based, a reservation is requested.

Wine Cellar

Kania Lodge has one of the most interesting wine cellars in Poland and you are welcome to visit it to choose a wine or wines for your meal. Thanks to our sister company Wine Express Ltd we are able to offer hundreds of different wines and scores of vintages, many more than a decade old.

We’ve everything from a 2000 vintage Coleraine from New Zealand (voted one of the 10 best wines in the world at Vinexpo in France in 2005) to an exuberant and inexpensive Rosso di Montepulciano from Tuscany.

We can help you choose a wine to match the food and if you are really serious about wine, as many of our guests are, we can organise a tasting and/or wine seminar and conduct it in Polish or English. Kania Lodge’s owner John Borrell has personal contacts with some of the top wineries and winemakers in the world. He is passionate about wine and offers guests not only his own enthusiasm but also a deep understanding.

Conference room

Kania Lodge has a state of the art conference room which can comfortably seat 30. It has good natural light as well as a sophisticated multi-purpose lighting system, a view over the lake and a private outdoor terrace. Facilities include Wi-Fi, screen, flipcharts, and coffee bar. Frequent users of the conference facilities are international companies like Provident, Amplico and Janssen-Cilag. Special packages including conference facilities, meals and wine tasting/seminar are available to local tri-city companies not requiring accommodation.

Spa room

Kania Lodge offers guests that chance of relaxing in luxury and style in a spa room with both jacuzzi and sauna. A professional masseur is available by appointment.

Tennis court

Kania Lodge has a tennis court in a stunning position with views over the lake and garden. Racquets and tennis balls are available for hire. If you are serious player you are, of course, welcome to bring your own equipment.


Kania Lodge offers cycles for a small charge. However if you are a serious or keen cyclist we suggest you bring your own bicycle. There is splendid cycling country around the lodge and it is possible to ride 20 kilometres or more on forest paths without seeing a vehicle or being troubled by other people.

The lake

Kania Lodge overlooks Jeziora Białe, one of the cleanest lakes in Kaszubia. It’s so clean that there are fresh water crayfish. We own several hundred metres of lakefront and have a private jetty with a changing room. We have boats and canoes which you can use and there’s a sailing boat to hire. There’s a small sandy swimming area which is perfect for young children. During a good summer the water temperature reaches 25 C. In winter it freezes over and can be used for skating and cross country skiing.
