Gintherhof is an amazing farmhouse B&B run with love and care by Annalies and her family. Ehenbichl is a charming hamlet where all you'll hear is birds, the wind and maybe a pig from time to time - yet its 20-30 minutes away from Zugspitze, Neuschwanstein and the other tourist delights of southern Bavaria.
The farmhouse is close to 800 years old - about the same age as the castle ruins high on the mountain. Yet everything is impeccably clean and well kept. The cows (3+ 1 impossibly cute calf) live in the barn/basement where you can greet them through the windows. Every morning they go out to the meadows and every night, they come home to sleep.
Our room was very large with a sitting nook, king bed, private bath/shower, balcony overlooking the mountains/castle and walk in closet. We were told that the wood used in paneling the walls + ceiling is from special trees high in the Alps. The wood oils are good for your heart and ensure a restful sleep.
Breakfast is included in your stay and it's a mighty spread!!! Cheese (made from local milk) cold cuts, freshly baked breads (5-7 types!), local eggs, homemade jam, wildflower honey and homemade yogurt too! You'll be encouraged to make sandwiches for lunch. And you'll be greeted with homemade schnapps, homemade cake, and a genuine welcome fom the family.
You won't find better or more authentic hospitality anywhere else. The prices are extremely reasonable too. Our stay here was one of the highlights of our trip for sure!!
