We had a warm welcome but was a bit limited as we don't speak German and the owner only a little English. The accommodation matched the photos very well but think the feather filled pillows duvets were old should be replaced with synthetic that can be washed . Kitchen was basic functional 2 rolling pins but no vegetable peeler! The views were stunning - and access to woodland paths superb. Cottage warm cosy but very close to cow shed - smell was very strong!
We stayed in Christine's 3 roomed apartment for 9 days with our son (14) and daughter (16) and had a lovely time. With the Königs card we enjoyed free access to a variety of outdoor and indoor swimming pools, many options to travel on cable cars and chairlifts to enjoy the views, many mini-golf courses (we managed 3), and many other attractions (all free). We had a car so didn't make use of free buses. Our favourite places were Murnau and Oberammergau, least favourite was Garmisch to see the gorge (too wet and too many tourists on narrow paths!). There were probably about 8 places to eat in Bad Kohlgrub, we enjoyed the Italian in the village centre, the Indian (Avatar) and just out of the village was the very Bavarian Jäger Haus - we went there twice. Guggenberg Alm also just outside and visited a few times. Ideally you need a car to get to get to the last 2.
Apart from Sunday, you can have a baking order waiting outside the door. We also accepted Christine's offer of a pre-stocked fridge. Great!
Our hosts were brilliant. They found a good balance between offering information but leaving us in peace. We used the basket ball net most nights and generally made good use of our base. There is not a washing machine in the kitchen but the arrangement is you can do a machine load in the cellar for 3 euros which was fine.
Would we recommend this place - most definitely!
