Great vacation get away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, the house was very comfortable, just what we needed. The kitchen so cute and well stocked to be able to cook and eat. Close to downtown so enjoyed our walks to shopping and activities. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay in Frankenmuth!

Everything about Rupprecht Haus was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The location for all shops and activities in Frankenmuth couldn't be better. The house was spotlessly clean; the linens and towels so nice, and our large group didn't feel crowded at all in the sleeping, cooking, and social spaces. Only thing I might mention is that a blind or drape is needed on the front door in order to use the couch/bed for sleeping purposes. I highly recommend Rupprecht Haus!!!.

Roomy fifties style home

  • 5 of 5

When you walk in, the first thing you see is the awesome fifties kitchen with these beautiful blue appliances against pink walls and a black and white checkered floor. You could cook anything you want in that kitchen. Don’t worry about bringing anything except the food. There is a small grocery store is right across the street for any food stuff you forget.

There are 4 bedrooms, a rec room with a pullout and a pullout in the living room. There is also a futon upstairs if needed. My family would have needed at least two hotel rooms to fit 6 and still no one would have had their own private space. We found it to be well worth the price.

There is a charcoal grill which we used one night while we hung out in the summer kitchen turned rec room. It was our first time ever playing bumper pool. We have been to Frankenmuth many times but this was the most fun by far.
