Holiday Rental House
Estimated to have been built in the 1880’s, this gasthaus is one of the few historical barns in the area still standing. It was part of the original homestead of the Schlaudt Family where it remained in their family until 1994. It was eventually restored by your host who achieved her vision of adding modern amenities to the building while retaining its rustic charm by keeping the exposed cypress beams and native rock. The original features of a working barn are seen throughout the gasthaus, but the comforts of home have been added. An antique door headboard functions as a headboard wall for the King size bed that is adorned with country quilts and pillows. An original stall gate is featured as a headboard on the Queen bed in the Green Room.
