Harzverbunden Waldquartier

Bad Grund, Lower Saxony, Germany

Larissa and Daniel have been welcoming their guests to their newly renovated holiday homes in the middle of the Harz Mountains since 2022. As real locals, they want to convey their deep love and connection to this region and create a lively, natural and authentic retreat for their visitors.

The original resort from the 1960s has been brought back to life with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. The ten houses are arranged in a circle like in a miniature village - facing each other and yet self-sufficient. The houses are spacious and bright with modern bathrooms and kitchens. The tasteful furnishings and the large windows overlooking the greenery ensure natural relaxation. Lots of wood, individual finds and harmonious natural colors round off the Scandinavian furnishing style - a bit of hygge in the Harz Mountains.

In the evening the campfire crackles and we eat together, talk or listen to the sounds of the forest. The focus here is on what connects, whether on an active family holiday, a romantic wedding, an exciting workshop with colleagues or a soothing retreat with friends. Everything can be planned here together with the hosts, who lovingly take care of every detail from the decoration to the catering.

But there are also plenty of retreats for those looking for peace and quiet. Whether in the rustic barrel sauna in the middle of the forest or in one of the cozy tipis that are invitingly lit up in the evening. The forest district as a place of power for everyone who is looking for peace and inspiration in nature. As promised, you are quickly “connected to the resin” here – connected to the magical forest, the enchanting animals and the warm-hearted people.

ArchitectureThe houses are from the 1960s and were originally built as a church facility for recreation. The ten houses were completely renovated in-house. The owners worked together with local craftsmen and only used regional wood. Some of the furniture was self-made or old furniture was made usable again through upcycling. The walls are painted with lime paint for a healthy indoor climate (breathable, moisture-regulating and ecological).

FoodThe offered breakfast basket is mostly filled with regional products. There are herb beds and berry bushes on the site, as well as plans for planting vegetables and fruit trees. Vegetarian and vegan dishes are also available on request.

EnvironmentAttention is drawn to the careful use of all resources and the local flora and fauna is explained. Only organic products are used to clean and care for the houses. All products such as soap, shampoo, shower gel, bed linen and towels are also biodegradable or certified. There are three bee colonies on the premises and old and rare breeds of chickens. Natural parts of the mountain meadow serve as a shelter for insects and bees.

Well-BeingThe barrel sauna with a view of the forest invites you to relax close to nature. Cosmetics, massage and yoga can be booked on request.
