Great little place in the heart of German village - never even knew it existed. Full kitchen, nice full bath with great shower. Bed was a bit squeaky but lots of pillows, cozy spot for a getaway for two!

We stayed here for our wedding night and felt very pampered. We had a bottle of champagne waiting for us and enjoyed a leisurely shower and wonderful nights sleep. The bed is so comfortable! We had an early flight to catch the next morning so having a great selection of breakfast foods (homemade yogurt, granola, muffins, hard boiled eggs, etc.)...

I like the Guesthouse. It was my third or fourth stay there. It's very tranquil and has a lovely garden out back. But I missed and very much wanted to have in the room a desk or table to work at. The lighting was not very good for working either. Occupying the breakfast table in the dining area didn't seem...

Thank you for your response. As someone who has traveled quite a bit for business I take appreciate your comments regarding working spaces, and I completely understand how you feel. We struggled with the desk space problem when designing our rooms as we don't want them to feel cramped and small, but the tradeoff is that the common area becomes...

Used this place to stay when my own home was overflowing. Easy to come and go, quiet, and great services. Loved the room and the gardens. Great little breakfast was provided. Very convenient location and on street parking was easy.

Have been there now several times. Place is well decorated, clean and well appointed. The back yard is a beautiful retreat with fireplace and comfortable chairs. One of the highlights are the breakfast options that include home made yogurt, fresh bread and fruits. The location of this is the best since you can easily walk to G Michaels, Schmidts. the...

Tiny tv, uncomfortable chairs in the room. Otherwise nice. On a different note, the walkabout in the neighborhood one should be advised of beggars. Twice we were asked for $. I usually keep McDonald's gift cards in my wallet for such occasions.

Thank you very much for your feedback. We apologize that you had a less than stellar experience. We have upsized the TVs in our Guest House rooms based on your response. We completely understand how you found the Wassily chairs a bit stiff, however many of our guests love the classic Marcel Breuer design! We also rarely encounter panhandlers in...

I'm still kicking myself for sitting on a bench outside Schmidt's to visit with my sister when this gorgeous garden area was right down the street!

There was the outdoor seating area, a full kitchen at our disposal, an indoor sitting area with a dining table as...

We stayed at the Whittier Suites "extension" (make sure you put the Whittier address into your GPS or you will go to the original Guest House which is a couple blocks away). Pictures can't do the Whittier Suites justice. It was laid out like a luxurious home away from home that you could customize yourself. The full kitchen was fully...

“Room #1 is downstairs and right off the kitchen. Rooms #2-3 are upstairs. Room 3 is big but the blinds don't give total privacy and the bathroom sink is tiny. We will try to book room 2 next time.”
