You will be surprised about the treasures the region will offer you. The house by the forest is situated in a particularly idyllic countryside with a magnificent view to the Steinbach lake, the Wildenburg castle and the hilly countryside with forests. We offer 3 ***holiday flats, comfortable and cosy for 2 - 4 persons. Large lawns for playing and sunbathing, garden furniture, barbecue hut, table tennis and a playground are available. The German Precious Stones Road and the nearby wine-growing regions offer interesting destinations. Langweiler is a special insider’s recommendation.

Plenty of good and inexpensive restaurants are near by.

Also the Wildenburg with game preserve, an airplane and steam train exhibition, an open-air museum, a telephone and wood museum, as well as a copper and a slate mine and different castles are worth a visit. Further places of interest: the nearby wine-growing regions Moselle and Nahe, where you can have wine-tasting at estates and make boat trips, further Trier, Germany's oldest town (45 min. drive) with Roman buildings such as Porta Nigra, amphitheatre, Basilika, Roman thermal spa and Luxembourg (60 min. drive). Swimming possibilities: heated open-air swimming pool 8 km, subtropical swimming pool with manifold sauna facilities 12 km, thermal spa with indoor and outdoor swimming pool 22 km.

You can participate in one of the many different event excursions about regional wildlife, birds and bats with the forester, the Hunsrueck nature, search of mushrooms with subsequent cooking, guided cycle tours through the forest etc.

Bed and breakfast: The House by the Forest in Langweiler can easily be reached via Frankfurt-Hahn airport (destination of Ryan Air). A car can be rented directly at airport. Approx. 1/2 hour drive to Langweiler.

During your holidays you can also participate in a goldsmith-course or a gemstone-cutting course. We can make arrangements for you on request.

rubin summer 2010

  • 5 of 5

Summer 2010 our family visited the rubin apartment, the hospitality was outstanding as anything we inquired over, our hosts would as much as possible more than help us with. We would be booked in for all the experiences chosen, the local better places to eat, where to get the new car tyres from, enquiries regarding the purchase of a local style bar-b-que and the most impresive invitation to the hosts own private space to enjoy a local schnitzel with other guests and drinks.

We all enjoyed,

Thank you for having us.

Beware of hidden extras

  • 1 of 5

Our stay was marred by the hidden extras in the owners invitations to BBQs. We were asked if we would like to attend a BBQ on the sunday. Naively we said yes. We were then told that would cost us x amount. Then after the BBQ we tried to pay and were told the drinks they offered us on the day were extra. Also our towels were chargeable per change but only after the owner insisted on changing them, not forewarning us of the charge and given no option to retain them. The Kitchen has no kettle or ironing facilities. I had to borrow an iron and iron my shirts on the table. It has a 4 ring hob with no oven or grill, making do with a microwave/grill combi. The beds were hard and weak framed pine twin beds, not ideal for adult married couples. We had expected a double bed as in the photo on the advertisement. Although the property was clean and tidy we were disappointed with the levels of equipment and would not recommend this location. I would also recommend being closer to the Rhine as Worms, Koblenz, Speyer, Mainz are all some distance away.

Owner's Response: Our comment: The fact that many satisfied guests enjoy their stay in our house, giving very positive evaluations personally and in our visitors's book, and that a large number of regular guests coming time and again since many years, show different conclusions. In this case we already made a concession in advance, as these guests asked us to renounce on usual partial down payment, which we exceptionally accepted. We dealt with many e-mails regarding change/prolongation of stay etc. As usual, we pointed out already in our offer and confirmation of booking that towels are to be brought (whereas bedware, cleaning at departure and all other costs are included, also offered and confirmed specifically). Accordingly guests usually bring towels. When making a barbecue with guests, costs prices are shared, costs prices of drinks as well (or guests bring their own drinks). Our holiday apartments have *** according to specific German classification standards. We chose mattrasses according to positive products tests by Stiftung Warentest, beds are good, and our online descriptions clearly indicate equipment of holiday apartments. Holiday apartment for 2 persons (Ruby and Emerald) f. i. presently have 4 ring stove and microwave as well as different electrical appliances; apartment Amethyste for 4 persons has 4 ring stove and baking oven etc. Guests can use electric iron and ironing table, as needed. As to the region, guests are usually choosing holiday region in advance, according to personal preferences. Our guests, including families, appreciate the gentle Hunsrueck highlands with many forests, in the gemstone region Idar-Oberstein, the possibilities to relax, to walk and the manifold attractions of our region. The gemstone city Idar-Oberstein is 15 minutes, Bernkastel-Kues at Moselle wine region 30 minutes and Trier with Roman buildings 45 minutes drive.

Wir lieben den Hunsrueck und wir lieben Haus am Wald. Die Gastfrau von Haus am Wald ist wirklich eine sehr gute und freundliche Gastfrau!

Die Ferienwohnungen sind sauber und gepflegt.

Die Lage ist sehr ruhig und das Aussicht ist wunderbar!

Die Preise ist guenstig.

Der Hunsrueck ist ein Wanderparadies und man kann auch schoene Ausfluge machen zum Rhein und Mosel.

Wir kommen schon seit 7 Jahre im Haus am Wald und dieses Jahr war sicher nicht das letzte Mal.

Wir freuen uns auf das naechste Mal!!

Haus am Eald - immer wieder gern !!!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt in ruhiger, ausgezeichneter Lage, Wandern ohne Ende, der Ausblick zum Wald und Talsperre ist fantastisch.

Die Gastgeber sind spitze, sehr familiär, das hat uns sehr gut gefallen, auch die Anregungen für unsere Ausflüge, Spezialitäten und Restaurants!

Unser Kind hat sich im Garten richtig austoben könnern.

Die Ausflüge zu Edelsteinschleifereien, Schlittenfahren am Eberskopf und die vielen Wanderungen waren super.

Kurz: Wir haben uns wie Zuhause gefühlt!!!
