Spacious and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here 10 nights in June. The peaceful location is ideal for hiking in the Harz, yet restaurants and a modest supermarket are also within walking distance. Nearby towns are within easy reach as well. The kitchen is well equipped, making cooking and eating in at the large dining table a pleasure. We particularly appreciated the large number of dishes and glasses, sharp knives and dishwasher. I can't think of anything the kitchen was lacking, which is unusual for a rental. The house is overall of a high quality, comfortably furnished, and very clean. We enjoyed the comfortable sitting area while watching movies on the large screen TV. We have stayed in many rentals over the years, and this house ranks as one of the best.

Wij hebben in april een heerlijke week gehad in Schierke.

Het huis voldeed helemaal aan onze verwachtingen. Ook de sauna was top!

Vanuit het huis hebben we schitterende wandelingen gemaakt door het bos en langs het riviertje. Het kan goed zijn dat we nog eens terug komen!

Tolles Luxushaus in modernem Design

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit 3 Kindern) wollten gern mit den Großeltern eine Woche im Harz verbringen. Das wunderschönen Blockhaus in dem herrlichen Ort Schierke war wie gemacht für uns 7 Personen. In den geschmackvoll eingerichteten und großzügigen Räumen fühlten wir uns wie zu Hause. Besonders angetan waren wir von der großen sonnigen Terrasse mit Blick in die bewaldete Berglandschaft und den Abenden vor dem Kamin. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Nur ein paar Gehminuten und wir waren im Ortskern mit Bäcker, Supermarkt, Sparkasse und Restaurants. Genauso schnell waren wir auf den zahlreichen Wanderwegen durch die Wälder rund um den Brocken und Wurmberg. Toller Erholungswert - wir kommen gern wieder.

Perfekt in Lage und Ausstattung

  • 5 of 5

Nach langer Suche für geeignete Ferienhäuser/Wohnung(en) für 6 Erwachsene und 4 Kleinkindern haben wir zu unserem Glück die nagelneuen Blockhäuser "Auszeit" und "Weitsicht" in Schierke gefunden.

Beide Häuser sind top ausgestattet, bieten viel Platz und Groß und Klein hatten viel Spaß und konnten den kurzen Urlaub rundum genießen.

Die Ausflugsmöglichkeiten und Freizeitangebote in der Nähe haben den Urlaub zu einem schönen Erlebnis gemacht.

Die "Verwaltung" war unkompliziert und sehr gut organisiert.

Wir können die Häuser mit bestem Gewissen weiterempfehlen und kommen bestimmt auch mal wieder.
