Charming, historic Black Forest Guesthouse is located in the southern Black Forest in a very private setting immediately alongside the Elzbach River.    This former sawmill is now offered for your recreational pleasure with many amenities to enjoy.  The guesthouse is supplied with water from its own spring.   There is no smoking inside.


The babbling river entertains all your senses, walking across the small bridge, relaxing in the lovely garden with a playground, garden swing, chairs, lounges or sunbathe on you're towel after a refreshing dip in the cool river. 


In the summer it’s an ideal starting point for hiking trails and cycling (circle tours from the front door), for both race and mountain bikes.  In winter our location (or nearby) is ideal for alpine skiing & cross-country plus sledding, tobaggoning and snow shoeing. 

Altitude +/- 700 meters. 


Located between Schonach and Oberprechtal, 43 kilometres N/E of Freiburg, we offer secure storage for bicycles and skis with facilities to clean sports equipment.  Bicycles are available for the use of guests.


A common room with large fireplace, dining area and lounge includes a piano, library and outdoor deck overlooking the garden and is  available to all guests.   There is a fitness studio to be used at your own risk, plus an inhouse sauna for a small extra fee.


Our two apartments can be rented individually or together for groups of up to eleven people.
