About the property

The Meadow House-

The Meadow House is a newly renovated three storey house lying directly on the Garmisch Meadows, near the Kreuzeckbahn and Alpspitz cable cars. There are three separately contained holiday apartments and a separate 4 bedroomed wooden chalet, which can be rented either individually to accommodate from 4 people or altogether to accommodate groups of up to 40 people. More details on the chalet which sleeps 8-10 people and has its own private sauna and whirlpool can be found by looking at property 1078739 on the HomeAway site.

The views of the flowery meadows and the mountains in summer and the ski slopes in winter really don't get much better than this!

We are very child-friendly and as Suzanne, the British owner, has lived in the area for over 10 years,we are happy to help out with skiing, hiking and sightseeing information to help you make the most of your stay. We live nearby.

We have free washing and drying facilities including powder and also a ski cellar. An Aldi supermarket is within an easy walk- as are bars and restaurants and a bakers. We have a bus stop outside the house with a regular service. In the summer it is a pleasant 30 minute walk into town.

Garmisch also has a great Farmers Market every Friday morning 8-1pm. Winter or summer there is a great range of local produce such as cheese, smoked trout, salami, Bavarian breads and sausages and other fresh produce and local crafts.

Garmisch hosts a variety of events all year round- Beer Festivals, Spring Festivals, Christmas markets, the Pre-Lent Fasching or Carnival among many other traditional and non-traditional fetes. We also make a great base for the Munich Oktoberfest ( beer festival) or the BMW bikers festival.

Off road parking is available for up to 2 cars per apartment. If you wish to bring more cars please do confer with the owner first. It is about a 12 euro taxi ride from the Garmisch train station.

For American Guests:

We are located literally within a 2 minute walk of the US AFRC Edelweiss Resort and the Marshall Centre. Any US military families can easily access the Resort's facilities, the PX and the Commissary etc. We also accept the VAT form- which saves you 7% on your accommodation.

About Suzanne Mayhew

Hello! I'm Suzanne. I'm British and grew up in Berkshire and when taking a break from my 'proper' career in London ten years ago, I ended up visiting friends who run the Local Cure Irish Bar in Garmisch for a few months skiing and boarding.

Like most people who intend on visiting Garmisch for a short break, I got hooked on the place and ended up staying! Garmisch not only has great mountains, skiing and everything you could wish for in terms of outdoor activites, it is also a really nice place to live- there's a good mix of locals and international residents who have moved here.

We have now spent 10 years being based in Garmisch, with interludes back in Brighton in the UK, and my son has grown up here. I really want to help people make the most of their stay in the local area and really welcome enquiries about the area and planning your stay- such as how to organise a surprise paragliding flight that will land in view of the house, to recommend an english ( or german) speaking babysitter, how to hire a horse-drawn carriage for those special occasions! Just ask!

Suzanne Mayhew purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Suzanne Mayhew chose Werdenfelser Land

I used to be a property developer in Brighton- and couldn't believe it when the Garmisch estate agent showed me what is now The Meadow House. A building with potentially the best view in Garmisch- directly on the meadows, with no future worries about anyone building in front of the house as it is zoned farmland, great off-road parking and it was a scruffy disused office building and warehouse with bars on the very small windows! What a waste!

Once the planning permission had been granted to turn the building into three luxury apartments, I couldn't wait to get started. Working with a well-respected local carpenter, we raised the roof in November 2010 to create the new all wood Loft apartment, knocked all the bars off the windows and put as much glass on the picture postcard view side as possible, adding a huge wooden balcony and terrace.

We welcomed our first guests in the summer of 2011- and since then have had many repeat visitors which has been lovely.

We really have had some truly lovely families and groups of people staying from all over the world, from the UK, Australia, Canada, Korea, the USA, Mexico, Egypt, Palestine, UAE, Saudi Arabia, India, Italy, Germany, Turkey, The Netherlands,France, Belgium, Switzerland, Sweden, Norway, Portugal and Spain- Garmisch really is an international destination!

Car: recommended

The Meadow House directly overlooks the Grainau meadows and the Zugspitze mountain range- the highest in Germany. Cross-country ski trails are on the doorstep and you can watch skiers and snowboarders on the Kandahar and Olympia ski pistes from the windows. The cable cars are a 2 minute drive, The Loisach river is 200 m. away. The Austrian ski resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald are also just 15 minutes by car. The paragliding school lands in the field next door. In the summer Garmisch is a mecca for hikers, bikers, climbers and canoeists. The Eibsee lake at the foot of the Zugspitze offers an idyllic mountain backdrop to swimming or boating. There are also great indoor and outdoor pools.Garmisch-Partenkirchen is a picturesque Bavarian town with many traditional restaurants, good shopping and a good night life. For history buffs, King Ludwig's fairytale castle Neuschwanstein is an hours drive and another palace- Schloss Linderhof a mere 30 minutes. Munich and Innsbruck are easily accessible

Other Activities: Rafting, hiking, cross-country skiing, kayaking,swimming in lakes and outdoor pools in summer, local farmers' markets, golf courses

Golf: There are three 18 hole golf courses- with spectacular mountain backdrops within a 20 minute drive- in Garmisch-Burgrain, in Oberau and also in Ehrwald in the neighbouring Austrian Tyrol.

Ski: Garmisch has two main ski areas- the Classic area which links the Hausberg, Kreuzeck and Alspitz lifts and the Glacial skiing area up on the Zugspitze.

The Hausberg area is where most of the ski and board schools are based with a great easy blue and a magic carpet area for children surrounded by lots of great bars and restaurants. There are reds or a black down to the valley from here. There are fantastic runs with spectacular views for beginners and for advanced skiers. The Olympic downhill run and the World Cup Kandahar are blacks which could test even professional skiers and the lifts have all been updated recently due to Garmisch hosting the 2011 Skiing World Championships.

The larger skipass includes the Austrian Tyrolean resorts of Lermoos and Ehrwald which are a mere 20 minutes by car. Without a car, it is a 15 minute walk to the lifts from the Meadow House- or we have a bus stop right outside the house. Please look at www.zugspitze.de for more ski maps and prices.

Excellent property and conditions

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Balcony Apartment which is a very nice apartment with a magnificent view to the mountain and very close (walking distance) to the lifts. Definitely we want to come back to Garmisch and stay in the same apartment.

Best views in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

  • 5 of 5

The view from the balcony and adjoining windows is simply magnificent. The owner was very responsive and always helpful. The apartment was large, clean and included all the expected amenities. The kitchen was spacious and functional. The bedrooms were large and filled with natural light. To clarify, two bedrooms face away from the scenic views, it is the kitchen, dining/living room, master bedroom and ensuite that have the views. The bathrooms were lovely. The master bedroom with ensuite was also lovely and the view of the Zugspitze from there is hard to beat. Whilst there is no outdoor area for kids to play (other than the balcony), the path through the fields is only as stone's throw away. The balcony is also spacious (we had breakfast on it every morning) and it's not shared with other apartments. The location is brilliant as it's on the very edge of Garmisch, meaning nothing gets in the way of the view to the Zugspitze, there are just the fields between this house and the next town, Grainau. We loved it so much we have already re-booked this apartment for the next trip.

View, view, view!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you want view this property is where you want to be. When we were there in mid-April we had all kinds of weather, rain, snow and brilliant sunshine. They were all beautiful in their own way. Being from the southern USA we were not expecting snow, but it only added to our experience. The apartment is very conveniently located being close to everything you need. Garmisch is not a large city allowing for easy access to every need or want. Our apartment was the Balcony which was great for our family of six, two grandparents, our son , his wife and our two teenage grandchildren. To summarize, our choice was "a good one".

Great location, stunning views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the balcony apartment (2 families - 4 adults, 3 teenagers). Spacious comfortable rooms, well furnished, excellent showers. Great apartment for self catering. Owners friendly, approachable and easily contactable. Beautiful views from the balcony. Good storage facilities for ski gear/equipment. Accessible to ski slopes and amenities. Recommend car to explore other areas for skiing. Beside a busy road but were not disturbed by any noise from traffic. Would highly recommend this accommodation and would definitely stay here again.
