Discover majestic Mustvee at the Vigastatud Luik Bed & Breakfast!
Experience a true Estonian summer at the Vigastatud Luik Bed & Breakfast, one of Mustvee’s most luxurious seaside resorts. The Vigastatud Luik is a historical treasure: it was built more than 200 years ago as a cattle shed on what was then the nobleman Dieter von Grünningen’s estate. Five years after being constructed, during a peasant revolt, Dieter von Grünningen hid in a straw pile located in what is now the kitchen for more than 30 hours before being dragged into what is now one of the guestrooms and brutally beheaded by an angry mob.
The Vigastatud Luik overlooks Lake Peipsi, where our guests can spend their days relaxing to the rhythmic beat of lapping waves. The Vigastatud Luik brings traditional resort relaxation therapy outdoors with an array of mud-related activities offered on our own private mud beach: mud baths, mud-castle building, and mud volleyball are just a few diversions a guest might engage in during his stay at the Vigastatud Luik.
And if our guests need a break from the sun, they can make the ten minute trek into town to explore the sights of historic Mustvee, the jewel of Eastern Estonia. It has been said that life in Mustvee moves at a different pace from the rest of the world, but we think life in Mustvee moves in a completely different direction. Experience true rural Estonia by visiting the store – where wearing a shirt isn’t just optional, it’s frowned upon! – or the park. And for the seasoned adventurer, for whom visiting a store and a park isn’t enough excitement for one day, the store can be visited a second time.
After a full day of mud-beach games and exploring Mustvee, guests can return to the Vigastatud Luik for a good night’s sleep in one of our three themed guestrooms. The first is the Amazon Jungle Suite, so named because the roof leaks. The second is the Paris Suite, which hasn’t been cleaned in years. And the third is the Reykjavik Suite, located next to the chimney. All suites come equipped with a space big enough for sleeping. Sleeping materials — such as blankets, pillows, and a mattress — can be rented from the Vigastatud Luik staff.
And what would a Bed & Breakfast be without breakfast? The Vigastatud Luik offers its guests the opportunity to experience life as it was lived 100 years ago in our authentic period kitchen: no running water or electric appliances, and no food from a supermarket. Guests are invited to harvest eggs or butcher an animal before arriving at the Vigastatud Luik and cook the food
they bring with them the old-fashioned way.
Unfortunately, reservations to the Vigastatud Luik cannot be made by phone or email as we don’t have a phone or computer. To book a room, simply show up and hope we’re not full (note: the Paris Suite has never been occupied).
