Hear From Our Owners

You have to call Gastehaus Schmidt…for real! I had another large local company handling mine, and they were pompous and leached profits. I went to Gastehaus Schmidt, and I doubled my profits, and have perfect reviews, and the house is perfectly maintained with full transparency on all charges and profits.
My best month was over 12K in profit after expenses, about 15K gross, and she is a very big part of that.

Gastehaus Schmidt has been my go to place to seek rentals in the area since shortly after opening their doors in the mid 80’s I believe. They were recommended by me to friends many times over the years. They have many beautiful homes to fit your style. And now I’ve come full circle with them to manage my own property, Lucky Lane, since mid September. They have surpassed my expectations and the transition for me to begin sharing my home has really gone well. I am very actively involved and they have been very accommodating! Book with GS, you will not regret it!

My experience as a b & b owner with Gastehaus Schmidt has been nothing but exceptional.  From the start, Jessica was able to offer guidance and advice which has proved very helpful when considering whether to host a short term rental. The staff have demonstrated over and over that they know the ins and outs of the industry and I have confidence that in every aspect of hosting they will go to great lengths to assure a lovely stay for guests and represent the owners professionally.  Having the staff take care of all the details of reservations allows me to focus on what matters most to me – hosting guests.  I have come to expect timely, communication anytime I have a question and the record keeping is so detailed and organized, it makes keeping on top of things a snap.  I can’t recommend it more highly.

As owners of Das Liebe Haus B&B, we find Gastehaus Schmidt an incredible asset to our success. Our business is consistently on an uptrend, the listings are managed professionally, and any and all requests are handled quickly. Great outfit!

We are relatively new to the guest house rental business (about 2 years) and so much appreciate the help provided by all of the staff at Gästehaus Schmidt. Everyone is so very courteous, knowledgeable, and professional on the phone and by email. We have had only a few bad guests and the staff at Gästehaus handled the situation, and collected the damages leaving us free to continue to work our “day jobs.” I would heartily recommend this reservation service to anyone considering starting a B&B business, it will give you peace of mind and you will get to know a great staff.
