The house was charming, clean, well equipped, and comfortable with fine attention to detail.The outside space was well maintained and even though the house is located within the town of Gransee, outside was quiet and peaceful. The owner was friendly, and made sure that our arrival was welcoming.
Gransee itself is a lovely old town with cobble-stoned streets and much history including a medieval cloister and church which are less than a minutes walk from the house. The church holds summer concerts, and there are nearby cafe/ bakeries, as well as two supermarkets within walking distance.
There is a train station about 1.5 km away that serves Berlin city centre (journey time is about 50 minutes) with trains departing hourly. An adult day ticket for the return train trip and service on Berlin's underground cost 13.80 euro. Outside Gransee there are many small towns, nature trails and lakes that can be reached by car or bicycle. Thus Gransee can offer the peace of a small town, with the option of countryside and city excursions - a very pleasant getaway that can cater for diverse interests.
We greatly enjoyed our time in this apartment, which is more properly described as a guest home. The furnishings are lovely and the property owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
With a full bedroom and sleep sofa, we slept well after a full day's activities in Berlin. The train station is not far from the home and the center of the city can be reached in about 30 minutes - longer to make connections to strategic sightseeing areas; but the train is very convenient. The owners also allowed us to use bicycles to tour the scenic area surrounding the apartment, as well.
With a full-sized living room and a huge bathroom, there is much to love about this comfortable little getaway.
We would have liked to have had paper towels and pot holders in the kitchen, but everything else was provided. The internet connection is not very strong in the living room, but works well in the bedroom.
Overall, we really enjoyed our time here and made wonderful memories during our stay.
