Many flock directly to the Baltic Coast, perhaps foolishly, as they miss out on the unspoilt, hilly hinterland dotted with villages full of red-brick buildings. In one such village, you find Madsow Cabin, a flat-roofed wooden cabin, with a veranda that stretches out into an elongated garden. Sipping freshly-brewed coffee, overlooking the fruit trees, listening to birdsong, is - in our opinion - the best way to start the day.
Simplicity is key here, and a stay at Madsow Cabin offers a much-desired antidote to big city life. Bedrooms only have beds within them. The living room is open-plan with a large sofa and wood-burning fireplace. The centrepiece of the kitchen is the dining table, which is bright thanks to the huge glass window it stands next to. Upstairs you find a gallery with space to read, work or play. You won’t find anything pretentious here; this is a cabin designed for life.

“This is our country house, situated in a very rural location and has a spacious garden with many fruit trees.”
“The landscape surrounding the village is wonderfully hilly.”
Family Springer/Kablau’s insider tips
Madsow Cabin is in the village of Madsow, half way between Rostock and Lübeck.
You can arrive in under 3 hours from Berlin with a car.
With public transport, it’s a bit difficult. Get the train to Bahnhof Wismar, from where you’ll need to catch two local buses (one towards Neuburg, and then to Madsow).
