Wonderful place to stay

5 on October 09, 2014

I have visited the Old Doctors House now three years in a row. The family is always welcoming and make me feel like an honorary member of their household. I have the best of Germany surrounding me i.e. Franconia. The food, wine and beer are all my favorites and it's near a place I enjoy immensely - Rothenburg ob der Tauber. I would recommend it unconditionally.

Ein fantastischer Aufenthalt!

Wir haben schon dreimal in Old Doctor's House übernachtet. Gemütlich, bequem, reizend, ruhig: ein Paradies.

Pension verdient die Auszeichnung "Pension mit Charme" zu recht

Although first time visitors, we were welcomed like old friends; tea, cake and wine in the garden with all the family. The buildings, rooms and garden are an absolute delight. Furnishings and accessories are a very tasteful and stylish blend of antique and modern. Breakfast was generous, and delicious, especially the home made jams from their garden fruits. Highly recommended by us, whether for an overnight stop or longer stay. Auf wiedersehen! Alan and Hannah Simons

Best Bed and Breakfast Place in the World

5 on August 22, 2013

I cannot praise this place enough. Even if the location is not near one of your touring spots, I recommend you take a detour and make it one of your spots. My friend and I travelled across the world for 70 days and stayed at numerous bed and breakfast joints throughout our travels. None of them could even compare to the hospitality and quality of Old Doctor's House. They treat you like family and make your comfort their number one concern. I felt like family. The food far exceeded my expectations. All of it is grown from their own garden or bought fresh at the market the same morning. The decor was captivating. You feel as though you jumped into a historical site with every couch, ornament, etc. kept in pristine shape with a story to tell. My friend and I were planning on hitting some of the more touristy spots of Bavaria, but the owners gave us insight into various small towns nearby that encompassed the authentic German experience we were looking for. We ended up changing our plans, avoided the tourist spots and have a far better trip than if we had followed our original itinerary. If you want to see authentic Bavaria without all the inflated prices...go to the Old Doctor's House and they will help you out. I speak with all honesty when I say that I may book another flight from America to Germany and bring my friends/parents to Old Doctor's House simply because it's more than worth it.

What a find!

Not only is the setting in this quiet village in beautiful landscape, the stay we had with the doctor and his wife the top experience of our three weeks in Europe. We arrived celebrating a wedding anniversary. Our hosts provided a beautiful bottle of wine and card to greet us. The breakfasts were served in a lovely setting with homemade jellies and jams. The opportunity we had to visit during the evenings over a glass of wine gave us educational opportunities unavailable in a hotel setting. There was nothing disappointing about this visit except is was not long enough. These gentle folks will long remain in our memories as the best of the best!

Another fantastic stay with our friends at the Old Doctor's House Bed and Breakfast

5 on May 04, 2013

We stayed with Dr. Braun, Dodo, Ruth, Randall and Zadie again in Dec 2012. We enjoyed our stay as always, actually it was like visiting relatives. We were very late in the night getting there and they waited up for us. We were welcomed like old friends, offered tea, and food, it was so nice to see them. Such an enjoyable place to stay with such genuine nice people with good food and spotless rooms.

Their House is your home

What a lovely place to stay. Our room was large, bright, comfortable and warm. The hosts could not have been more helpful and considerate. They make you feel a welcomed part of the family. And breakfast...what a meal with homemade goodies. We even had a special tour of the area with Randall, a font of information. And they speak better English than we. If you want a place that is convenient to historic towns but not in the hubbub, this is your place.

A great place to stay!

You feel like your staying with family. Every effort is made to make you feel at home. Absolutely wonderful people. We extended our stay and had a great time. My sons and I hope to return in the future.

Beautiful home with beautiful people

My fiance and I enjoyed three nights at this lovely B&B in Markt Einersheim. We opted for the lower priced room, but still had plenty of space (a huge bedroom and a nice-sized sitting room). The bathroom area is shared, but it is just outside the sitting room area and fortunately for us, two of the three days no one else was in the house, so it was all ours. The charm of a home with so much history made our stay even more special, although it had all of the modern amenities you may want (and the bathroom was very nice and updated). What really makes this place worth it though was the kindness of Dr. Braun, Ruth, and Dodo. They went out of their way for us, offering us our bicycles to get around town and drove us to the train station. They made us feel right at home, and I appreciated all that they did. In fact, it was better than home-- it had beautiful views and a candy on our pillow each night.
