“Aussies in Bavaria”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

A charming old farmhouse located in the small village of Berghof/Halblech about 9klms from King Ludwig's Castle Neuschwanstein at the foot of the Bavarian alps. The award winning home has been sympathetically restored, retaining most of its original character. Hosts John and Renata are most welcoming and a source of valuable local knowledge and suggestions for day trips around the area. Breakfasts were great and the old stable/barn area has been renovated to provide a cosy library area in which to relax and enjoy a wine after a day's touring. We stayed 5 nights and found it a good base from which to take day tours. Munich is about an hour away and we took a day trip parking at a park and ride station about 5 stops from central Munich for Euro 1.50 for the day.

If you don't have this Bed & Breakfast on your "Bucket List" of things to see or do before you die, I strongly suggest you add it today. From the moment we were greeted at the front door by Colin with a warm friendly hello to our last day, Colin and Renate made us feel as if Bed & Breakfast Jackson was truly our Bavarian home away from home. I truly had to chuckled inside when Colin handed us our own key to the front door. Wow!!! What a fabulous and memorable experience, staying in this beautifully decorated and restored old barn. Today it is impossible to see anything that resembles an old barn, instead it looks like a charming country cottage surrounded by beautiful gardens, which is located in a quiet village just one minute from the Romantic Road. Our room was clean, charming, spacious and quiet. A scrumptious breakfast was served daily in the sunny breakfast room. The table, set lovingly with fine china, silver, linens and a bouquet of fresh flowers. Breakfast consisting of fresh made rolls, German breads, homemade jellies/jams, choice meats, German cheeses, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, dry cereals, hot coffee or tea was obtained by Renate daily from local merchants. Truly a wonderful way to start your day. During our stay I celebrated a birthday. That morning when we arrived in the breakfast room Renate had scattered flower pedals around the table top and placed a delicious chocolate bar (which was gone within two days) and birthday card next to my place setting. What an unexpected extra special touch.
Centrally located close to many charming villages, the Iconic Schloss Neuschwanstein and Schloss Hohenschwagau Castles, restaurants, grocery stores, gas, a large lake, alpine meadows and snow covered alp's. Who wouldn't want to visit here? This Bavarian vacations was a dream come true. I would return tomorrow if I could.

B&B Jackson was a fantastic surprise in the countryside of Bavaria. Our room had a direct view of Schloss Neuschwanstein and Schloss Hohenschwangau in the distance, just a ten minute drive from the B&B. The charming town of Fussen is just a little bit further down the road where you can take meals and enjoy the well-preserved old town.

Colin and Renate were hospitable, friendly and generously shared knowledge about the region and sights. Breakfast, which is included in the very reasonable price, was served on antique china with hotel silver, and in generous portions. There's a bio (organic) market just next to the B&B with a wide assortment of natural and bio foods.

The B&B is loaded with rustic charm and comfort, with maze-like passageways of old solid timber and rustic tiles. It's easy to find, just a kilometer off the main road, with parking behind the house. We were there in shoulder-season, so booking could not have been easier. Two email exchanges with Colin and we were set. No deposits, no hassle, no dealing with bank transfers. (By the way, payment is cash only.)

This was a great exploration base that added an authentic Bavarian touch to our holiday. I highly recommend B&B Jackson for couples who want a relaxed, friendly and cozy stay while visiting the area.

Room Tip: There are just two rooms so you can't go wrong. The "Lord Byron" room is on the upper...

This is the best bed and breakfast experience we've ever had. The restored old barn/house is beautiful, charming and furnished with antique furniture. It is fastidiously kept. Our room was immaculate. Renate and Colin made a sumptious breakfast the next day, and joined us at the table for a lovely chat. Colin's extensive knowledge of Bavarian history is truly impressive. We wished we had more time to get to know them. Our stay here is one of the highlights of our trip in Germany.

Colin and Renate were amazing hosts! The property is absolutely beautiful and the rooms were cozy, warm and spacious. We were there in December so it was very snowy and cold which just added to the magical atmosphere. It was very, very dark when we arrived and Colin was nice enough to stand outside and wait for us so that we wouldn't miss the turn. The following morning Renate made the most beautiful breakfast which was the perfect finale to our visit. I highly recommend visiting Bed and Breakfast Jackson and look forward to returning myself!

We stayed with Colin and Renate in late April. Colin was the one who greeted us as Renate was out for the evening. He was such a gracious host and gave us loads of information on the Neuchwanstein Castle as he was previously employed there. He also gave us a tour of their BEAUTIFUL house with all it's age and history. Our room was fabulous and our breakfast was the best we had during our whole trip. I would definitely be going back to stay with them if we are in the area again and I highly recommend anyone else visiting the area to do the same.

Thank you again,

John and Kyla

If you are traveling to this area you MUST stay at this bed and breakfast. Colin & Renate Jackson are delightful people. They truly make you feel welcome and at home. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and large. We stayed in Lord Byron, which I highly recommend. Colin served us a wonderful breakfast of eggs, cereal, bread, and jam and worked around our schedule. Both Colin and Renate speak fluent English. They will give you advice about the area, and the bed and breakfast is very close to Füssen and the castles Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau. I hope to go back and visit them and their beautiful bed and breakfast someday.

Room Tip: We stayed in Lord Byron and loved it!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The core of the house is medieval and the house name Lippergüt’l originates from this period. Approximately 200 years ago the house was enlarged. We completely renovated the property where after it was listed as a building of historic interest. We won two prestigious awards for the restoration work and today the house offers some 450 qm. of living space wherein guests can enjoy an atmosphere of magical country elegance. Each room speaks for itself. The former barn is particularly impressive having retained it's former height and spaciousness where the elegant antique furnishings are shown to their best advantage. There is a library with a large selection of books also a piano for the musically inclined.On the ground floor of the barn is a conservatory style area where guests can breakfast, drink tea or simply sit and chat and enjoy a glass of wine. Here also are lovely views of the garden and surrounding countryside.However, words alone do not do the house justice. you must experience it for yourself! ... more   less
