Owners and hosts Gunter and Hedwig Buhmann provide a modern take on Bavarian charm in their chaletlike guesthouse, with large, functional rooms that open onto a view of a lake or mountains; a few have some nice flourishes, like wooden ceilings or canopied beds, and many have their own balconies. This is a smart base for touring the castles, but your hosts also provide info on hiking, mountain biking, and all sorts of other activities as well.
