Owners Priska and Gehard describe the Lake District Cabin as “a little paradise”, and after a stay here, we’d challenge you to disagree. After years spent exploring the Mecklenburg Lake District by land and water, Priska and Gehard came across this property in the Stechlin-Ruppiner-Land nature park, which - at that time - was completely deserted. A lot of time and love went into creating the architecturally-stunning cabin that stands amongst a lush garden.
Sleek lines contrast the wild nature of the surrounding greenery, and the cabin’s floor-to-ceiling windows allow for the outside to come inside. No matter where you are - in the living room, kitchen or bedrooms - you’re provided with views of wildflowers in the meadows, the ancient oaks in the forest or the reeds jutting from the lake. Wake up with the sun and you might spot deer grazing in the 20,000 sqm of land that belongs to the cabin, or gaze upwards and see if you can spot eagles circling over the lake looking for fish. This is a picture-book-perfect example of back-to-basics without giving up on luxurious living.
Introducing Priska and Gehard!
“We love nature, and spent years visiting the Mecklenburg Lake District due to the many boating, hiking and cycling opportunities. Eventually, we fulfilled our dream of owning our own holiday home in the region.”
“You have endless possibilities for doing nothing; a true luxury.”
