About us

Klaipėda Region is a northern part of Lithuania Minor, which is very important ethnographically and historically. In the years 1701-1929 it was the German ruled territory of Prussia with different inhabitants of ethnic origin, which helped to shape the current cultural peculiarities. They differed from Greater Lithuania in their linguistic dialect, lifestyle and nutrition traits, crafts, architecture and even clothing. In order to preserve the heritage of Lithuania Minor, we restored the former part of the German manor in Vilkyčiai, preserving the architecture of that time, and turned it into a cozy rural tourism homestead, where everyone can feel the spirit of Lithuania Minor. The "Mill House" name means connection between the history of the former standing mill and the hospitality of local people. The house is the most cozy place where we can feel free and relax, so we invite you to visit a rural tourism homestead and feel the German spirit.
