The Dvoračky mountain chalet lies at an altitude of 1140 metres above sea level between Mount Lysá (Lysá hora) and Mount Kotel at the junction of the Dvoračky - Rokytnice n. J., Studenov, Harrachov, Mísečky, Špindlerův Mlýn and Rezek hiking trails. One of the oldest trails dating from the 10th century and known as the Bohemian Trail also climbs past Dvoračky. It leads through Rokytnice n. J. and continues into Silesia via the Elbe Meadow (Labská Louka). On 19th September 1684, the procession of the Hradec Králové bishop, Krištof of Talenburg, travelled along the Bohemian Trail to consecrate the Elbe spring and it was there that the camel carrying the bishop's possessions fell, overwhelmed as it was by the long climb.

Dvoračky is a very old chalet, which was originally a mountain farmstead. The expansive surrounding grasslands with their dense grass growth enabled cattle breeding. The Schier family established the farmstead here in 1707. In March 1893, the farmstead burnt down and Count Harrach purchased the charred remains and rebuilt it as an inn. The chalet was very popular with visitors, even in winter. In February 1902, the seventh Czech skiing championships were held here. In 1921, the property was transferred to state ownership during the land reforms and the Czech Puhonný family leased and later purchased it. The most significant hosts to have signed the guest book there include president Dr. Eduard Beneš and his wife Hana, who loved the Giant Mountains (Krkonoše) and spent their leisure time in Dvoračky prior to the war and then later in 1945.

Nowadays, Dvoračky is popular for its cottage bakery, its homemade cuisine and its pleasant prices. It is open 365 days a year from 9 a.m. to 24 p.m.
