On the ground floor of the maisonette apartment in the historic double residential house are the almost square living room, a kitchen and the bathroom. On the floor above, there are the bedrooms. The house is located a few steps from the shores of Lake Beetz, in a village belonging to 800 years old village Päwesin settlement.
Päwesin is a village with about 600 inhabitants in the district of Potsdam-Mittelmark, directly on the border to the Havelland, surrounded by lakes, fields and forest. But it is also close to Brandenburg on the Havel, Potsdam and Berlin. The surrounding area therefore invites both to a quiet stay in the remoteness of the sparsely populated lake landscape as well as trips to the cultural institutions of the nearby cities. Very good can be spent on Lake Beetz also a varied beach holiday.
The over one hundred year old house was completely renovated in 2014. In the half of the house you have from the living room through the floor-to-ceiling window the view of fruit trees and the ruggedly grown access to the settlement. On the terrace in the small garden you can sit under a parasol and are practically for yourself. Apart from the guests of neighboring holiday apartments and some residents, they are surrounded only by smaller and larger birds, also many white storks, of game and rodents. The entrance to the smaller house, which is also rented to holiday guests, is located on the other side of the house. Parents especially appreciate being able to keep an eye on their children while playing on the climbing tower of the cottage settlement from the terrace. For smaller children, a highchair and a travel cot is available. Sitting on the sofa in the living room, you have on one side slightly away the large kitchen window in the view and on the other side two small, sea-side windows. When approaching the windows, the lake can be seen to the side, with trees, shrubs and grass on the shore.
The furniture is a very special combination of beautiful, old individual pieces and modern furniture. In the kitchen you will find a high quality and extensive equipment. Information on the history of the place and excursion possibilities are out. Internet reception is via WLAN.
Apart from the kitchen, which goes into the living room, there is the spacious bathroom with shower on the ground floor. It also houses the washing machine. A wooden spiral staircase leads to the upper floor, where there is another toilet in addition to the two bedrooms. In the large bedroom with a double bed, exposed wooden beams and a sloping roof (with plenty of freedom of movement) create a rustic atmosphere. The bed is equipped with two single mattresses. The smaller bedroom has two beds placed one behind the other under a sloping roof in a narrow, elongated room. Especially children feel very well here. Another toilet on the upper floor spares the way down to the bathroom at night.
There are many nature beaches and sandy beaches that are not crowded, yet some offer surfboard, paddleboard and sailboat rentals or a cafe. The in-house rowing boat is not only very popular with anglers, but also by families and in fact by all guests who want to explore the shore landscape from the sea side. Since the Beetzsee is part of a longer chain of lakes, the rowing possibilities are almost unlimited. The lifejackets for adults and children are welcome.
The small center of Päwesin with its small baroque church is a short walk or 5 minutes away by car. The bakery of the Buddhist monastery "Backwahn" with its small café, located next to the church, has been a major attraction of the village since 2003. Many visitors swear by the cake, but the morning bakery is well worth the drive to the bakery.
You can reach Brandenburg an der Havel in 20 minutes by car. There you can visit several museums, churches and a renovated in the zero years monastery (monument), all tell a lot about the history of the city. Not only in bad weather, the swimming pool with indoor and outdoor area, pool area and sauna is a good place to start. Restaurants and cafés have a wider choice as well as small shops and supermarkets.
In the Havelland numerous cycle paths have been created in recent years, which invite to long tours on well paved paths in beautiful nature. If you do not have your own bikes with you, you can rent mountain bikes nearby or touring bicycles or e-bikes in Ketzin, Nauen or Brandenburg. Information about the dense network of charging stations for e-bikes can be found on the Internet.
