Extremely nice hosts & stylish apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I, together with our 18 months old toddler spent a memorable 2.5 months in this great modern house! Designed with smart technology, with half of the house in total glass walls, it is really enjoyable to stay at the house with all the beautiful greeneries around us.

We love the ALNO kitchen most. All the equipments and appliances were neatly built-in, clean and modern.

Bedroom is comfortably spacious, we can even fit in a playpen beside our bed. Plenty of storage spaces in the bedroom, you can bring a whole load of luggages with you!

There's a lovely lake nearby and it feels almost so fairy-tale. A very serene place with lots of nature which we deeply appreciate as we had lived in the city for the whole of our lives.

There's two nearby towns - Pfullendorf and Ravensburg. Both are simply amazing. Folks at Pfullendorf are one of the kindest and friendliest we had ever came across. Plenty of supermakets and stores, you can get everything here, in less than 10 mins ride from the house. Ravensburg, 30 mins away is a romantic and beautiful town. You can't miss it!

Last of all, Christiane and Uli are really nice folks, very warm, kind and helpful during our stay. Thanks for everything and of course, the superb dinner that you had whipped for us on our last night - German traditional cheese noodles, creme brûlée, fresh apple juice, soup and salad. It's really great hospitality!

Not forgetting that both of them speaks perfect English! Great for travellers who doesn't speak any European languages.

A Great Place To Stay

  • 5 of 5

I went to Southern Germany in the early Spring with my son to have a closer look at the natural and especially the cultural sites of Baden-Würtemberg. Ruschweilerhaus forms a great 'point of departure' for trips to Sigmaringen, Wilflingen, Bodensee, Schwarzwald and other places. Also, it is a great modern house to stay in - very functional and nice. Great surroundings, with the quiet village and the lake. The owners, the Wachsmanns, are very kind and very forthcoming to deal with. We can warmly recommend a stay at the Ruschweilerhaus!

Wonderfull holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull holiday in Ruschweiler house. We stayed there for 5 days together with our 4 kids.

The house was very comfortable and very clean as new, we get there all the equipment we needed.

The hosts were very kind. They offered everything you can expect, also we found there plenty of games for the children.

At the evening we always sit outside the house on the deck for dinner and we enjoyed the lovely and quiet view of the house.

There is a beautifull lake near the house, about few minutes walking.

We had a great time and we warmly reccomended it particular if you have children.

Einfach schön!

  • 5 of 5

Die Bilder sprechen eigentlich für sich.

Was man auf den Bildern nicht sieht: das Haus liegt in einer abwechslungsreichen Landschaft, die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und unkompliziert, die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, auf dem Nachbarhof kann man selbst gebackenes Brot erwerben und auch schlechtes Wetter lässt sich - falls man keines der Schlecht-Wetter-Ziele wie Basilika Kloster Weingarten, Museen in Ravensburg usw. ansteuern will - in der Wohnung aushalten.

Beach at the Ruschweiler Lake
Car: recommended

Situated in the beautiful landscape between Danube and Lake Constance, the house was built in 2010 at the edge of an orchard. There is a small beach at the Ruschweiler Lake, which is only a five-minute walk away.

At the somewhat bigger Lake „Illmensee“ – about ten minutes by bicycle or by car – you find a family-friendly lido with miniature golf, a nonswimmers-area, a playground, boat rentals, and fishing.

The house is well-located for hiking and biking tours, cross-country skiing in winter. The Lake Dwelling Museum at Unteruhldingen, the hot springs in Meersburg and Überlingen, the Salem Monastery and Castle with its wonderful park are all within easy distance.

During the summer, Ruschweiler is a quiet refuge from the hustle of Lake Constance – though close enough for a quick plunge into the bustle visit if so desired (Überlingen on Lake Constance is only 16 m away). And in winter, there is much more sun than in the lower, often foggy region of Lake Constance itself.
