Beautiful Black Forest!
This property is very easy to find and is in the middle of much of what the Black Forest has got to offer. Don't bother with the likes of Titisee and Feldberg in the Southern B.F., we found them dull and crowded. This part of the Black Forest seems to have much more to offer. Within walking distance is a museum that is a major tourist attraction and a "Rodelbahn" - A toboggan run that is exhilarating. Easily accessed are many other attractions (quite a few in walking distance) ,but the real stars of the show in the area are the many forest walks with beautiful views. I would suggest going past "Kirnbach", up the hill and then just explore. That area is not a place for cautious drivers however as the roads are narrow and steep (No cliffs though). However, you've come this far, be a bit adventurous. When getting to the top after passing "Rockelhof", I saw a scene as perfect as I can remember.
If you're a cyclist and enjoy long,steep hills, this place is as good as the Alps (in my opinion), assuming that the rides that you're looking to do are not much more than 2hours long. Saying that, the area is stunning wherever you go, so any length of ride would probably be well covered here.
Now to the accomodation; believe what you are told! Herr und Frau Schneider have a beautiful home that is in excellent condition and is extremely clean. The room "Talblick", is on the top floor and has a pleasant balcony with a lovely view over the mountains. All rooms of the property are very well kept, nicely decorated and have excellent quality furniture.
If there is a drawback about the place, it is that there is a train-line about 300 yards away and the trains start at 5:30, running hourly. Please don't let this put you off however, as it's not that loud; to be honest, we barely even noticed it after a couple of days and it became educational with our two year old daughter. She even learnt the German word for train....!
Finally, onto "Mein Hosts". Herr und Frau Schneider are simply lovely, friendly people who will welcome you into their fine home. They speak no English though, so I suggest trying your best to learn a bit of simple German to at least be able to converse to a minimal level - if you don't, I'd be surprised if you don't regret it!
