2 BEDROOM COTTAGE HOME IN QUIET WINE-COUNTRY VILLAGE ON THE MOSEL.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Erden - Haus Margarete-Erden

Self-catering historic cottage with 2 bicycles; wine-tasting at local wineries.

Enjoy the charm of a bygone era, rent our romantic cottage home in the quaint winemakers' village of Erden on the Mosel for your next holiday. Built in 1661 this half-timbered house is the oldest house in the village and is set among several registered historic half-timbered houses. It has been updated and appointed with all the comforts of home. Features include: two bedrooms, one with WC, all linens include: full-sized bathroom with shower, towels provided; down comforters and down pillows; small, functional kitchen; (Living/Dining Room) with Flat-Screen TV and Satellite feed (including English language programming); DVD and CD Player; small library, CD collection and family table games; two bicycles for guest use. Free wi-fi is available. All rooms are furnished with antiques.

Self-Catering & Alternatives: A small, but serviceable kitchen is available in Haus Margarete-Erden. It includes all the utensils and small appliances you will need for fixing coffee, tea, or making light meals. You can order fresh rolls, yogurt, milk, jam, etc. which are delivered to the door every morning during your stay. Ask Olaf or Ingrid of the restaurant Zur Ratsschenke to make up your order and fax it off to the bakers in the neighboring village. Enjoy the morning as you sit in the wide sill of the kitchen window with a morning cup of coffee and watch life pass through the 'Engpass' (the Narrows) below. No need to pay until you check out. Don't feel like cooking or want to spend a romantic evening dining in? Ask Zur Ratsschenke for a list of dishes you can order from their menu for private in-home dining. Sit down to a fine meal on porcelain dinnerware and cloth napkins in the comfort of Haus Margarete's dining room. Patio table and chairs (and umbrella) available.

The Middle Mosel: Erden is in the heart of the highly acclaimed Middle Mosel which stretches from Leiwen to just a bit past Erden, at Traben-Trarbach. The finest, most delicate Rieslings are produced in this fabled region. Bicycle from village to village to taste the wines at all the area wineries (check with the Tourist Information office) or just enjoy the scenery and the slow pace. Nearby Bernkastel-Kues is among the most popular spots along the Mosel with its half-timbered houses along winding streets, wine shops, wine museum and restaurants. Bernkastel is also a popular spot to start or end a Mosel boat excursion.

this property is out of this world, whatever the website says is never enough. you cannot find a more homely and friendly village on the planet. We would return everyday if we could, especialy to taste the food in zur ratschenke and to sample the hospitality of these wonderful people.

Highlight of our trip

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed here with our 2 year old in October 2013, and we still consider this one of the highlights of our trip. We so often stay in uninteresting hotels, but were SO GLAD we chose to stay in a historic home in a charming, beautiful village. The restaurant down the street was excellent, and we so enjoyed getting our breakfast rolls and milk delivered to the door step! Everyone we worked with was very friendly and helpful. It was a great size - two bedrooms and a nice sized living room. And all of the beams and slanting ceilings? Well, we may ave bumped our heads a time or two, but it was part of the charm. We'd definitely stay here again, and also recommend it to others.

Wish we were still there!

  • 5 out of 5
Visiting a beautiful region, such as the Moselle, is even better when you find such a quaint, old house, full of atmosphere and ideally located near all the nicest places and vineyards.
The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals, if you don't want to take advantage of the great restaurants in the area (and if you are really lazy, you can find the very best right outside your door: Ingrid and Olaf, at the Ratsschenke, offer fine food, and, of course, great wine!
Ingrid is the lady who will welcome you upon arrival, to let you into your "new home away from home". Parking is in front of the barn, outside the entrance door. There are two bikes if you want to keep fit, and ride up and down the river banks, which is really recommended. If you are not extra-fit, and haven't been cycling for a while, you can ride downstream to Wolf (or to Traben Trarbach) and then take the boat back to Zeltingen (bikes allowed on board at no extra charge), from where you can ride back (downstream again ... easier!).
The 2 bedrooms are big,, the sitting room/dining room is cosy, with flat screen TV.
If you cannot leave without your laptop, no worries: the wi-fi connection works perfectly well!
By now, I guess you understood how enthusiastic we were about our accomodation: should we go back to the area (and we will!) we will surelky book it again!
Just one advice for the tall guys (and girls!): this is a 1661 house... even Germans in those days must have been short: ceilings are low, so beware of wood beams!
Thanks to all the villagers, who helped with information and directions, and, again, to Ingrid for her help throughout...

A perfect haus for our stay

  • 5 out of 5
The pictures do not do this lovely house justice. We loved “Haus Margarete” as it offered us wonderful accommodations in a less touristy setting among "real" people that live and work in the village. Some of the wooden beams are a bit low for a person like me (187 cm tall), but you tend to learn quickly after a few encounters. Hey, it's all part of the charm.

The kitchen was well equipped and the living/dining room cabinet had all the plates, cup and glasses we needed for our family of four. Our kids (age 2 and 6) loved the steep stairs and they shared the room with the two single beds. The house was very clean, the beds were good, the extra toilet on the 3rd floor was a bonus, and the WIFI helped us look for activities and excursions in the area.

The region is beautiful and offers excursions for all ages. We enjoyed lovely warm weather as we bicycled in the local area and visited a number of the public swimming pools. Within a hour drive we were able to visit places like Burg Eltz, Idar-Oberstein, the child-friendly amusement park in Klotten (near Cochem) and many other great places (numerous quiet villages and towns along the Mosel and up in the eifel and the Hunsruck). We enjoyed our stay immensely and one week was perfect for us to get a good feel for the region. The Mosel, the Eifel and the Hunsruck offer many great attractions and excursions.

I almost forgot about the beer, wine and food, which were amazing as well. Ingrid and Olaf Melcher at Ratsschenke were wonderful. Their lovely restaurant seemed busy all days of the week and that says a lot in a quiet little village like Erden. The last night we were there their patio was full so they served us food on our own little patio, which was only about 25 metres from the restaurant's patio.

Dating from the year 1661, the access for those who are less mobile is not ideal in this house. We recommend this charmingly little house to anyone of any age, as long as you don't mind climbing a few stairs.

Charming Old House

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this old half-timber house! Stayed a week with husband, sister and brother-in-law. Lots of room, great village, and Ingrid was wonderful and helpful. The food at her restaurant was so good and we loved her pizzas delivered to our patio table in the evening! The husbands hit their heads a few times on the low beams, but it was all part of the charm. Great place to stay for location.

Located just 8km from both Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach and a 30 minute taxi ride from Frankfurt-Hahn, it is in the heart of the Middle Mosel region, Germany's premier wine-country, yet away from the noisy crowds. Erden is a quiet village (pop. ca. 400) of vintners who produce the best and most distinctive Rieslings in the heart of the renowned Middle Mosel region, including Erdner Treppchen. Explore this culturally rich and beautiful region from the convenient location of Erden and start and end each day in the peace and charm of our cozy holiday home. Enjoy bicycling along the Mosel on level, dedicated bike trails to neighboring villages. Summer and fall offer the most activities: wine festivals, music festivals and outdoor activities like walking and bicycling. For a special treat, come spend Christmas on the Mosel in Germany and attend the Weihnachtsmarkt at Bernkastel.

Other Activities: Wine-tasting; Mosel river cruises; castle tours; rowing.
