Went there with a tour and although raining still enjoyed seeing typical farm village life. The accommodation was genuine so too were the furnishings. Also the windmill and water wheel. Great place to visit.

Did this as part of a walking tour around Suzdal. The architecture is stunning. Each building has a little explanation about it in both Russian and English. Definitely worth visiting
