Dajayon Guest House is a traditional Korean house called “hanok” built in the 1940s or 1950s. The rooms are clean and comfortable to stay in because the whole house was renovated in 2015, except for the columns and other wooden structures. The layout of the house is that of an ordinary traditional Korean house with a gate and a front yard, complete with a toenmaru (narrow wooden porch running along the outside of a room) where guests can sit and chat. There are a total of three guestrooms in the buildings, which are in the shape of the Korean alphabet 'ㄷ'. The living room and kitchen are shared among guests. There is a modern-style bathroom in each of the guesthouses.
The interior of the room is quite simple as it has the style of a traditional Korean house. The rooms are floor-heated so the blankets are on the floor instead of a bed, and they are furnished with TV, air conditioner, and WiFi. You must make a reservation if you want to have breakfast at the guesthouse. It's a Korean-style breakfast complete with steamed rice and various side dishes that change every day. This is a great way to experience the ordinary Korean food that ordinary Koreans eat almost every day. The owner of the guesthouse tries to serve different types of delicious dishes every morning. Guests can also experience traditional Korean tea, served and drunk in the traditional way. A small fee is charged for the tea. The guesthouse offers various other experience programs, so be sure to ask about them when making a reservation.
