The manor was built in the first half of the 18th century in the classical style by the Polish noble family Jaworski, whose the coat of arms known as “Oksza” was a white ax on a red shield. In the 19th century, there was a period of national uprisings in which the Jaworski family, like most patriotic nobility took an active part, and as a consequence suffered severe personal and material losses.
This led to a gradual ruin of the family. Part of the family was forced into exile in order to avoid persecution by the Russian invaders. During World War II the manor was taken over by the Germans and until 1944, a school of the Hitler Youth operated within its walls, followed by a military warehouse known as Wehrmacht. After the liberation in the postwar period, the manor acted as a primary school for children living in the area. Lack of funds for repairs and the deteriorating state of the manor forced its liquidation in 1972.
From that time until 1984, the manor was registered as a historic site and remained unattended, yielding further devastation to the state of almost total ruin. It was in 1984, under the supervision of the Conservation authorities, that the current owners – Bozena and Mark Szok -undertook the restoration of the manor in keeping with its original form.
Jaworowy Dwór – named after its original owners, was opened in 1986 as a family-run hotel and a place for meetings and conferences. The manor is surrounded by a beautifully landscaped park with a pond, just as it did nearly 200 years ago.
Today, in the garden you can find a nearly 400-year old oak tree, an outdoor swimming pool, a large pond, gazebos, a recreational and multipurpose sports field, and a golf course (pitch & putt). In addition to the outbuilding, on the property is a gardener’s house with a 70m² apartment, as well as a 3-bedroom family suite decorated in a traditional folk style with a bathroom in a separate building, and 2 additional guest rooms beside the old stable.
Inside the manor – outside dining area, a terrace, a spa and a library – there are 16 stylish rooms, combining classic elegance with functionality. Each is decorated in a different style and color, with extraordinary attention to authentic furnishings and stylish details. Throughout the entire facility can accommodate 56 guests at the same time.
This is a special place. We have been coming here for years; we conduct trainings and workshops for our employees, but we also come here with great pleasure for our own vacation. The owners take great care of everything – they offer excellent cuisine and picturesque surroundings where you can relax on the beautiful terrace, by the fireplace or in the many charming places hidden in the shade of trees and flowers. We have visited many places in Poland – our work takes us to various conference centers, hotels and bed & breakfasts. But there is only one like this. They pay great attention to guests, beauty, and tradition. Another advantage is the excellent location to Warsaw. Sometimes it is difficult to believe that such a unique, lusciously green, soothing, and perfect location to both work and relax is so close to the capital. It’s worth it to go to places which are exceptional because positive impressions remain for a long time.
