Estimated to have been built in the 1880’s, this gasthaus is one of the few historical barns in the area still standing. It was part of the original homestead of the Schlaudt Family where it remained in their family until 1994. It was eventually restored by your host who achieved her vision of adding modern amenities to the building while retaining its rustic charm by keeping the exposed cypress beams and native rock.
The original features of a working barn are seen throughout the gasthaus, but the comforts of home have been added. An antique door headboard functions as a headboard wall for the King size bed that is adorned with country quilts and pillows. An original stall gate is featured as a headboard on the Queen bed in the Green Room. The vintage lighting and an old wood stove used as a nightstand gives this room its unique character.
The “all new” bathroom was constructed in the stall area next to the King bedroom. The centerpiece of this room is the 1917 six foot claw foot tub and the romantic crystal chandelier. Guests have the option of relaxing in the wonderful tub or using the large walk-in tile shower.
The third Double bed is located at the end of the long main living are which is decorated in a vintage western them. This area features rock walls and has a comfortable seating area including two wing back chairs for visiting and watching Dish TV. There is also a table and chairs in this room.
A breakfast of assorted German pasties is left for you on the hanging porch swing between 7-7:30am by your host. Evenings can be spent on the porch swing, enjoying the wildlife this country barn has to offer.
