Lesnaya 7 is located in Bolshie Koty on the Lake Baikal shore.
It is only reachable by ship or a 20km walk along the shore from Listvyanka.
Instead of the expensive hotels and souvenir stands in Listvyanka,
Bolshie Koty has exclusively wooden houses, free-roaming horses and cows -
there are no cars in the village.
Bolshie Koty offers beautiful lake and forest walks, swimming and relaxation. Lesnaya 7 cabins are in a relaxed garden setting overlooking the vilage and sea.
If you want to experience Lake Baikal without the tasteless commercialization of
Listvyanka, Bolshie Koty is the place to be.
All our guests are welcome and encouraged to use our new yoga hall.

Prices are per person per night.
