Welcome To The Lodge


Welcome to Yellow Lodge. Yellow Lodge is private space in the village of Völlendorf, Mostviertel in Lower Austria. Our lodge is located very close to the Pielach valley and river as well as the Ebersdorfer lake. We created this space so that we can share it with you. You can just spend the night in our homely designed lodge and enjoy the peace around nature in our large natural garden OR you book one of our entrepreneurship and self development programs which includes night stay, our delicious vegetarian African dishes and curated activities. We are a group of enthusiastic people who have migrated from afar and near to find a home in Mostviertel. We look forward to your stay at our lodge.

Room - Edo

Edo is the name of our third room and also originates from the name of the old Edo Ancient kingdom called the Benin Kingdom from which Joana comes from. The room is spacious and has a beautiful wooden double bed with linen bed sheets. A large window gives view to the garden and allows for bright light into the room. There is an orange coach in the room that can be converted to a sleeping space for a child or youth if needed.

Room - Eko

Eko, the name of our first room, comes from the western African city Lagos, traditionally called Eko in Yoruba. From Eko, you have access to 2 spaces – the inner Eko and outer Eko. Inner Eko has a double bed and leads directly to a very large balcony from where you can gaze over the 30 years + old trees in the garden. On our large balcony, you can enjoy your morning tea or coffee while listening to the early birds sing. The outer Eko has a bed which can be pulled out into a double bed each, creating a total sleeping space of 4 at Eko. 

Outdoor area

Nature has gifted us with a diversity where trees, animals, amazing people, rivers, streams, lakes, walk paths and many more treasures endow us with a peaceful life.  We feel extremely grateful to experience these gifts and are very happy to share this experience with you.  As we develop our lodge space, we continue to curate simple experiences to help you explore the most out of this precious time you set aside to spend with us. When we conceived the idea to start the lodge, it was a dream come true to find this space as it offered us the right spot to explore. Now it is time to invite you to join us on our journey. 

Living area

The living area has an integrated boutique shelf with products from our sustainable craft project in Africa and yummy products from our locality, a work or dining table accommodating 4-6 people. The living space is perfect for workshops for small teams and we can provide you with a smart tv, flip chart and printers if you require them. 

The lodge has its own separate entrance from the top patio leading down the stairway. If you follow the stairs further down, you will enter a large garden space of about 5000 square metres. There is a self made grill in the garden and the house is just 400 metres walking distance from a secret entrance to the Pielach river.  We are consistently developing our outdoor area and look forward to creating many spots for relaxation, development and self discovery.


We have a room dedicated to showcase products from our social fashion project in Nigeria. You can also view and purchase our products and also products from our handcraft partners in Africa. For Those joining our 2-day program, we have a special take away package for you that comes alone with specialities from our locals regions.
