Oryuheon House, located near Imhaho Lake in Andong, Gyeongsangbuk-do, offers a chance to stay in a historic house from the Joseon period. The house, also known as Mogwa House, was built by Kim Won-jung, the third son of Sukjong-era rector of the National Academy Kim Bang-geol, when he formed a family of his own in 1678. It was designated as the National Folk Cultural Heritage No. 184. The door’s wooden frame and the open floor space exemplify the beauty of the literati house of the Joseon period, while the sarangchae (men’s quarters) and daemunchae (gate quarters) showcase the sophisticated architecture of the era. Anchae (women’s quarters) retains its original appearance, while the sarangchae was rebuilt in 1920. The construction of the Imha Dam in 1990 resulted in the house’s relocation to its present location.
The owner of the house resides in anchae and sarangchae. Guests have access to a space that includes a 2-kan room, which can accommodate up to 4, an open floor space, and a bathroom. Cooking is prohibited in the house, but guests can make use of a grill located on a small yard reserved for the guests. Korean-style breakfast, including menus like chicken porridge or lotus leaf rice, are offered free of charge in the morning. Nearby sights include the water sports activities in Imhaho Lake, Manhyujeong Pavilion, Hahoe Village, and Dosanseowon Confucian Academy.
