Our Wachterhof forest cabin is located, as the name indicates, at the edge of the forest, about 150 m above the main house. The cabin was built in 1932 as a barn for storing hay and as a stable for young cattle.

About 30 years ago, the barn was completely refurbished inside and is now let throughout the entire year. Outside, the cabin still looks as it did when it was built in 1932.

With its traditional, rustic charm that is created by its sun-burnt timber on the outside and its simple, characteristic country cottage style on the inside, far from roads and noise, our forest cabin is perfect for nature lovers.

The cabin is not accessible by car; the car park is located about 150 m distant; a wide footpath connects it to the cabin. We take care of your luggage, bringing it to the cabin when you arrive and taking it down to the car park again when you leave.

In addition to the generous covered terrace with comfortable seating on the ground floor is the entrance.
