After our previous thoroughly enjoyable visit we were very much looking forward to our next three night stay at the Pension Elan. We were very warmly welcomed and John and Irina recognised us from our first stay. The room was as expected, smallish but big enough for our needs and warmly decorated and clean. We immediately made use of the... More

At the end of May 2015, we spent a weekend in the Bavarian Forest and chose to stay at Pension Elan because of its proximity to the highest mountain in the Bavarian Forest the "Große Arber". We and two other families had a delightful stay. We arrived very very late because of a major road accident and despite the late... More

We spent a fantastic 5 days at Pension Elan back in February 2015 with our 2 kids and parents! It is not only the surroundings, the nature and Arber skiing slopes which made the stay special. It is actually the owners - John and Irina - who create that one and only, exceptional and extraordinary touch of the place. These... More

What a splendid trip this was, the owners were a delightful couple and really made us feel welcome and comfortable at all times. The food was absolutely delicious! Traditional pork knuckle one night and a special dinner of rare delicacies another night. My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights to explore the surrounding area on foot and John haloed... More

Following a weekend skiing with my friends, we stayed here over the weekend in the apartment and it was a wonderful experience. The owners are incredible, warm and kind. The hospitality was out of this world, and we will definitely be back. The food is to die for, all local and fresh. The free hot wine and shots just keep... More

If you are going to Grosser Arber, Pension Élan should be your only choice. The place is wonderful and cozy. The owners were very kind and hospitable. I've never been so much welcomed. They've tried hard to make our stay unforgettable. And I have to say they over exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to going back there again

As part of a short cycling break in the Bavarian Forest and Sumava national park, I stayed for one night with my girlfriend at the lovely Pension Elan before moving over the road to the Pension Sonnenblick where I'd stayed before a couple of years before. On arrival very early on the Friday afternoon, I was warmly greeted by John... More

We absolutely loved Pension Elan. Our room was very clean and the whole place looked newly renovated. Bed was comfy and breakfast was good. The best thing about this place though is the owners; John and his wife were lovely. They really went out of their way, letting us connect the laptop up to the big TV in the breakfast... More
