I would stay here on a future visit again. Its about a 15 minute walk to the main part of the village.
Our stay at Olga's house was a very nice experience! It was the first time either of us (three students - two girls and a boy) stayed in a homestay like this. Breakfast was just delicious and very filling. The second day we payed 400 rub each for dinner made by Olga - pelmeni and salad. Tea and cookies were available at all times of the day. We all speak Russian, so we didn't experience any language barrier.

Very good and rich breakfast. Two separate rooms are connected via open spaces in the walls, apparently meant for hot air circulation in winter as there are no radiators. This is a disadvantage because the rooms are connected and you can hear everything. Shared WC and bathroom. There is 1 room that is completely separate. Beds are OK but primitive. Olga's family is a bit weird, stares at you without greeting. Having your laundry washed is expensive.
Superb. Olga is an extremely welcoming and hospitable host with a comfortable, immaculate house on the edge of the village. Immediately upon arrival we were presented with tea and a warm welcome, and nothing felt like too much trouble. Lovely breakfast too, and Olga's English speaking is spot on. Well recommended.
Nice homestay. An error had been made with our reservation but they found a solution and gave us a reduction. The atmosphere is nice and the breakfast (which is mandatory, Olga wakes you up anyway :) ) also. I recommend.
