Just a stone's throw from Berlin, but in the heart of the Biosphere Reserve Schorfheide-Chorin Brodowin the lake house is located in an idyllic location right on Parsteinsee. From the park-like garden guests have private access to the crystal clear lake offering rowing, sailing and diving. Especially for children, the flat, sandy entry is from the swimming area. Shopping facilities within few minutes from the farm shop offers especially organic farms in the ecovillage Brodowin. Larger shops and supermarkets are within about 15-20 minutes in Eberswalde and Angermünde. Worthwhile excursions in the immediate vicinity are the "best little zoo in Germany" in Eberswalde, the famous ship Niederfinow and the ancient Cistercian monastery Chorin, which provides in the summer months, an ambitious music festival.
