Vipp transforms old log house into blissful hideaway

A former listed fisherman's house from 1876, once used as a roadhouse between Riga and Wolmar, has been gently relocated to one of Latvia's most spectacular nature parks, the Salaca River Valley. Situated on the bank of the river, the old log house has been transformed into a blissful hideaway and design retreat in the woods opening the doors to Vipp's 9th guesthouse - 'Vipp Salaca River'.

As the house is approached from the tree-filled countryside, the opaque log house reveals little more than a brief glimpse of nature's grandeur that awaits visitors once they enter the guesthouse. From inside the house, an unobstructed view of the Salaca River unfolds through the large picture windows, letting in plenty of sunlight.

Step inside
A total of 110 m2, divided over two floors, has witnessed a completely new layout. The many small rooms that previously characterised the interior have been replaced by a large open-plan living area oriented towards the river views, giving new volume and life to the house.

Sleeping in a log house
The master bedroom, complete with a freestanding bathtub, is situated on the first floor, offering a view overlooking the living area below. On the ground floor, there is a second bedroom with two single beds and a window facing the woods, along with a bathroom, an entrance hall, and a combined living area and kitchen.

Salaca River Valley
Salaca, the fifth-largest river in Latvia, stretches 94.4 km in length. The Salaca River Valley, from Mazsalaca to Salacgriva, is a picturesque nature park known for its verdant forests, rolling hills, and lively river.

Protected under the EU Biotope Directive, it includes sandstone outcrops, untouched caves, lowland and oak forests, river rapids, and dry meadows on calcareous soils. Renowned for its breathtaking landscapes, many stretches of the Salaca River are cherished for their striking natural vistas and serve as an internationally significant bird habitat and a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.
