Elfriede was truly a warm host. The room was a nice size, and was decorated like a little cottage. Gutach is not very big, but there is a good restaurant a few minutes down the road. Every morning we went to the main house for breakfast. There were selections of meats and breads, homemade jams and honey, juice, fresh milk and an egg if you would like. Elfriede really does not speak very much English, she probably knows a lot more than she speaks, so be prepared to be spoken to in German! Usually some hand gestures and pointing are all that is needed. My friend spoke fluent German, so I did not have any problems, but it never hurts to learn please, thank you, hello, goodbye, etc. Just a few basics go a long way. I honestly think anywhere you go, if you try to speak the language you are treated with more respect because you are showing respect. I would definitely recommend staying here, there are quite a few rooms if you have a larger group as well. The views are lovely and there are plenty of sights in the area to see.
