Lovely little loghouses in a peaceful setting, super attention to detail and very friendly reception including tips on local things to do and see. Wood and firelighters provided which was a real bonus! Will definitely go visit again!

Everything was spotlessly clean and the attention to detail for our comfort was outstanding.The fresh flowers in the lounge, the basket of firewood, the extra double adaptors and the heaters in the...

They are two of the most beautifull, caring loving people you will ever meet in... More

The cabin we stayed in very beautiful. Welcoming hosts, tasty rusks, refilled every day, lots of wood brought to the cottage for us to keep warm. It is a little treasure hidden in the mountains. The hosts when we arrived were very welcoming, Ine and Johann absolutely amazing people. And the owners are very nice too. It was a home... More

My boyfriend and I both thoroughly enjoyed our two day stay at Zur alten Mine. Our first night in the log cabin was excellent with a lovely fireplace. Our second night we got to stay in the Honeymoon Suite and it was a lovely cosy experience! The cabins are very quaint and private, and they have everything you need. The... More

Found this place just from other online reviews - and we were not disappointed at all! From our first email question to their follow-up email thanking us for our visit, the owners were very patient and helpful. When we arrived, they were right there to greet us and get us settled in to the Honeymoon Cabin, where we stayed 3... More

This is an absolutely beautiful little spot. We stayed in the Honeymoon Chalet, which is set far apart from the other chalets, overlooking a little dam. There is a fireplace inside the chalet, which was lovely after a long day's drive, both on the day we arrived and after spending the following day driving the Panorama Route. The hosts were... More

This is the perfect place to stay if you want the explore the Area. It's beautiful, quiet and allow very easy access to the area. Very friendly host. We stayed in the Honeymoon cabin, the pictures do not do the lovely atmosphere of the interior justice.
