About the property

Semi-detached three storey wooden house.Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, three loos

The Meadow Chalet was built by a local carpenter in 2013 on the side of our original building, the Meadow House,a newly renovated three storey house lying directly on the Garmisch Meadows, near the Kreuzeckbahn and Alpspitz cable cars. It can be rented on its own, or along with one or more of the three apartments next door. These apartments are listed on Home Away as Property 824675. Renting all apartments together we can accommodate groups of up to 35.

The views of the flowery meadows and the mountains in summer and the ski slopes in winter really don't get much better than this!

The Chalet has its own entrance and three floors. On the first floor there are three bedrooms, two doubles and a twin, all with balcony access and a family bathroom, with freestanding bath tub and a separate shower enclosure . There is a great open plan living space on the ground floor, with a large fully fitted kitchen,dining and seating area. This room is very light, with windows on three sides and access through French Doors to a terrace with dining table, small private garden, barbecue. There is also a cloakroom in the entrance hallway. A great way to unwind after a hard days skiing or hiking is our four person sauna with radio.

Downstairs, there is a fourth twin bedroom, a laundry room, space for storing skis and boards, another loo and the sauna with a walk-in shower.

The house has WiFi and also UK freesat TV.

Outside there is private parking for two cars.

We are very child-friendly and as Suzanne, the British owner, has lived in the area for over 10 years,we are happy to help out with skiing, hiking and sightseeing information to help you make the most of your stay.

An Aldi supermarket is within an easy walk- as are bars and restaurants and a baker. We have a bus stop outside the house with a regular service. In the summer it is a pleasant 30 minute walk into town.

Garmisch also has a great Farmers Market every Friday morning 8-1pm. Winter or summer there is a great range of local produce such as cheese, smoked trout, salami, Bavarian breads and sausages and other fresh produce and local crafts.

Garmisch hosts a variety of events all year round- Beer Festivals, Spring Festivals, Christmas markets, the Pre-Lent Fasching or Carnival among many other traditional and non-traditional fetes. We also make a great base for the Munich Oktoberfest (beer festival) or the BMW bikers festival.

For American Guests:

We are located literally within a 2 minute walk of the US AFRC Edelweiss Resort and the Marshall Centre. Any US military families can easily access the Resort's facilities, the PX and the Commissary etc. We also accept the VAT form- which saves you 7% on your accommodation.

About Suzanne Mayhew

Hello! I'm Suzanne. I'm British and grew up in Berkshire and when taking a break from my rat-race proper career in London ten years ago, I ended up visiting friends who run the Local Cure Irish Bar in Garmisch for a few months skiing and boarding. Like most people who intend on visiting Garmisch for a short break, I got hooked on the place and ended up staying! Garmisch not only has great mountains, skiing and everything you could wish for in terms of outdoor activities, it is also a really nice place to live- there's a good mix of locals and international residents who have moved here.

After 10 years of being based in Garmisch, I still really want to help people make the most of their stay to the local area and really welcome enquiries about the area and planning your stay- such as how to organise a surprise paragliding flight that will land in view of the house, to recommend an english ( or german) speaking babysitter, how to hire a horse-drawn carriage for those special occasions! Just ask!

Suzanne Mayhew purchased this chalet in 2009

Why Suzanne Mayhew chose Garmisch-Partenkirchen

I used to be a property developer in Brighton- and couldn't believe it when the Garmisch estate agent showed me what is now The Meadow House. A building with potentially the best view in Garmisch- directly on the meadows, with no future worries about anyone building in front of the house as it is zoned farmland, great off-road parking and it was a scruffy disused office building and warehouse with bars on the very small windows! What a waste!

Once the planning permission had been granted to turn the building into three luxury apartments, I couldn't wait to get started. Working with a well-respected local carpenter, we raised the roof in November 2010 to create the new all wood Loft apartment, knocked all the bars off the windows and put as much glass on the picture postcard view side as possible, adding a huge wooden balcony and terrace.

We welcomed our first guests in the summer of 2011- and since then have had many repeat visitors which has been lovely.

We really have had some truly lovely families and groups of people staying from all over the world, from the UK, Australia, Canada, Korea, the USA, Mexico, Egypt, Palestine, UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Italy, Germany, Turkey, The Netherlands,France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Portugal and Spain- Garmisch really is an international destination!

What makes this chalet unique

In January 2013 we completed our latest project- a new, self-contained, 4 bedroom wooden chalet complete with sauna in the basement and whirlpool in the garden on the land next to the house- so sharing the same fabulous views. This means we can now accommodate another 8-11 guests in their own private house, attached to the main house.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you, Suzanne for a wonderful week in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Your place is lovely.

"Outstanding Location!"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I know the area well and have been going to GP for years...this spot is close to all the essential, food, or shopping. Best of all? We can enjoy the GP Valley, Loisach River, and the grandeur of the Alps...all from the chalet...personal sauna is a plus! Suzanne is the best to work with and a delight to finally meet....Cheers! Thomas

A gorgeous chalet with a great view & a good location.

  • 4 of 5

The chalet was an ideal base for our mixed party of adults & children with plenty of living space for 8.

The sauna proved very popular after a day on the slopes.

Our only criticism would be a lack of equipment, specifically ovenware, in the kitchen.

Would definitely return.

Beautiful spot, very nice modern, comfortable chalet.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay, chalet was perfect for our needs (large wedding party). Location is terrific and it is easy to walk or bus into town. There are some fine walks in the area of chalet too.

It would be very helpful to have instructions for operating the kitchen stove and the washer and can use intuition, but that is not always reliable! All the batteries in the smoke alarms died at the same time causing a symphony of beeps so we disarmed them.

Suzanne was pretty responsive, unfortunately she was suffering from same cold as we were and we didn't see her very much. All in all, a lovely holiday, thank you.

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. clean, tidy, modern and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The Meadows house was a great place to stay for our skiing holiday. It had everything one would need for a very comfortable and present stay. Well within walking distance from the lifts and ski shop or the bus stop was directly outside the house. Suzanne the owner was fantastic and very helpfull with local knowledge. Great holiday location.

Car: recommended

The Meadow Chalet directly overlooks the Grainau meadows and the Zugspitze mountain range- the highest in Germany. Cross-country ski trails are on the doorstep and you can watch skiers and snowboarders on the Kandahar and Olympia ski pistes from the windows. The cable cars are a 2 minute drive, The Loisach river is 200 m. away. The Austrian ski resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald are also just 15 minutes by car. The paragliding school lands in the field next door. In the summer Garmisch is a mecca for hikers, bikers, climbers and canoeists. The Eibsee lake at the foot of the Zugspitze offers an idyllic mountain backdrop to swimming or boating. There are also great indoor and outdoor pools.Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a picturesque Bavarian town with many traditional restaurants, good shopping and a good night life. For history buffs, King Ludwig's fairytale castle Neuschwanstein is an hours drive and another palace- Schloss Linderhof a mere 30 minutes. Munich and Innsbruck are easily accessible

Other Activities: Rafting, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking,swimming in lakes and outdoor pools in summer, local farmers' markets, golf courses

Golf: There are three 18 hole golf courses- with spectacular mountain backdrops within a 20 minute drive- in Garmisch-Burgrain, in Oberau and also in Ehrwald in the neighbouring Austrian Tyrol.

Ski: Garmisch has two main ski areas- the Classic area which links the Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alspitz lifts and the Glacial skiing area up on the Zugspitze.

The Hausberg area is where most of the ski and board schools are based with a great easy blue and a magic carpet area for children surrounded by lots of great bars and restaurants. There are reds or a black down to the valley from here. There are fantastic runs with spectacular views for beginners and for advanced skiers. The Olympic downhill run and the World Cup Kandahar are blacks which could test even professional skiers and the lifts have all been updated recently due to Garmisch hosting the 2011 Skiing World Championships.

The larger skipass includes the Austrian Tyrolean resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald which are a mere 20 minutes by car. Without a car, it is a 15 minute walk to the lifts from the Meadow House- or we have a bus stop right outside the house.
