I cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at the German Village Guesthouse . We were there for a quick getaway to celebrate my birthday. Upon arrival we were surprised with a chilled bottle of champagne, strawberries and chocolates and a note saying happy birthday. (It was a gift, no charge) Our room was not only stylish, but also very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and even included homemade yogurt. There are snacks and drinks available throughout the day. The owner is very friendly and helpful and helped us check in early. Everything about this guesthouse had a personal touch. Our stay was during the COVID-19 pandemic. Everything was very clean and in addition they provided us with our own facemasks and hand sanitizer in the room. I look forward to returning to this beautiful B&B.

The German guest house is within walking distance of all the great local spots of the village including restaurants, gift shops, and the park. Suite #2. Up on entry a freshly made pot of tea and cookies were waiting in the kitchen. With very clean & spacious rooms with wonderful decor and arrangements you shouldn’t stay anywhere else. It is equipped with a kitchen, large bath room, living area, bedroom, and back deck. Breakfast and snacks are provided at no additional charge. Digital door entry make check in easy, with no keys to drop off or pick up. This is truly a home away from home. Local food: I recommend Schmidt’s sausage Haus.

Great place. From the owner to the housekeeping (and they are only around when they need to be), so professional and friendly. The private rooms and common areas have been fine tuned to perfection. It has all the right touches that makes if your home while you are there. Ten Stars!

My husband and I took a staycation in the city to get a restful night's sleep away from our 1.5 year old and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of the German Village Guest House. It is a gorgeous and well-kept home, outfitted with all kinds of cozy touches. The breakfast was so fresh and delicious, and the location in German Village can't be beat!
