Fairytale Home

One of my readers and I have been swapping renovation ideas and stories.  She and her husband are restoring a farmhouse they inherited in southern Germany.  She recently sent me pictures of the property, and my jaw dropped.  It truly looks like something out of a fairytale.  Lissette was kind enough to allow me to share photos with all of you, and hopefully she will show us from time to time how her renovation is coming along……


Isn't this incredible?  Thanks Lissette for letting me post this picture.  We look forward to seeing more!!

    Looks like a typical Bavarian house! I’m German and travelled to that part of the country with my grandparents as a child every summer. Love it there, everything looks so “gemütlich” as we say here (i.e. cozy, homely).

    What an enchanting house! It really stands out in all of that beautiful snow. I can just picture little woodland creatures roaming around…

    My parents took me to Europe when I was six years old. We had no reservations and no itinerary…very Bohemian. We stayed in Mutters, Austria for two nights in a family owned Inn that looked very similar to this. Our bedroom was upstairs. It had a tiny rosebud print wallpaper on all of the walls, the ceiling and the “hidden” door. The same print was used on the curtains and bed linens. Huge white fluffy down comforters as well. The first level was the family’s personal living quarters. They would leave the doors and windows open to the kitchen and the ducks, chickens and goats would roam thru. I will NEVER forget it!
