we highly recommend this vacation rental
Our family of 5 recently stayed at this B&B during a multi country European vacation and thoroughly enjoyed the location, rooms and our hosts, Wolfgang and Carola Kapellen.
The two rooms, each with its own bathroom, are on a separate ground floor level from the regular living quarters of the house so it has a very private feel. We used both rooms and found the bedrooms and bathrooms to be spotless and in perfect condition. Having two bathrooms was really nice especially with 3 teenagers! Both rooms open out onto a lovely little garden with tables and chairs. Nice place to sit with a glass of wine after a day of sightseeing.
The location in Potsdam was very convenient to all that we wanted to see. There is a little train station, Golm, about 1.5 miles from the house with service into Berlin -maybe a 40 minute ride on double decker train cars. The sites of Potsdam are about a 5 to 10 minute car/taxi ride from the B&B. You could easily spend 3-4 days just seeing all the remarkable palaces and parks of this charming little city. Favorites included the New Palace at Park Sanssouci, Cecilienhof with its World War 2 History, and the shopping and cafes of the Brandenburger Strasse.
Wolfgang and Carola are two very sincere people who pay great attention to detail and warmly welcome you into their B&B. They have a very easygoing manner, speak very good English and are a joy to converse with. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts in the morning with hot coffee, warm rolls, cheeses, meats and a selection of jams and jellies that Carola had made from the fruit in the gardens. At breakfast we would get all kinds of advice and suggestions for things to see, trains to take and generally how to make the most of our day. The Kapellens have a long family history in Potsdam and many fascinating stories about the area particularly life in former East Germany during the Cold War.
We highly recommend this B&B for anyone looking to spend some time in this lovely area and do so in the care of such friendly hosts.
