Myself and my partner had a really nice stay in the cabin. Beautiful green woods all around and very peaceful. Catharina was very welcoming, helpful and organised. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a unique get-away experience.

A weekend of beauty and calm in the wonderfully romantic cabin in the woods. If you want to "get away from it all" and get back in touch with nature, then do your soul a favour and go. Anica and Philip have created a haven in the countryside. We were made so welcome and had many great chats and laughs sitting around the fire pit. We were so lucky to be there for the "Forest Safari" dance festival which was just spectacular, thank you so much for the peace and quiet, the amazing creativity and the fun and laughter. We will definitely be back!

Catharina and her family hosted us already twice. After the first time we were sure to come back because we were immediately in love with the place at our first stay. Chatarina welcomes you with a warm heart and individual care. She gives you information about the history of the area and she is there for you, if you have any questions. The room is exactly as described. Cozy with candles and a beautiful atmosphere few steps into the woods. We woke up everyday with the singing birds out of very comfortable sheets and pillows. We are sure to come back again!

Anica was a very friendly host and made me feel at home right away, welcoming me and showing me around when I arrived. I had a very restful and comfortable stay in the enchanted log cabin. There were very generous provisions left in the kitchen for breakfast. There is something magical and special about this place, remarkably peaceful and full of life. I would definitely recommend and will be back. Many thanks
