Der Schafhof is an idyllic country inn, surrounded by beautiful grounds, historic outbuildings and calming vistas. The interiors are classic, traditional German with gleaming woods and comfortable decor (our room was off the mark in decoration only in the slightest: it was not magazine perfect but lovely just the same). We were sorry that we could only stay one night. We cannot recommend this hotel enough; it's like staying in another world. It was a monastery in its former life and still retains much of that tranquility. There are two restaurants on site for dinner: be sure and dine in the more formal (and expensive) of the two with the prix fixe menu. It was memorable from start to finish. No obnoxious tourists to be found: it is a way -station from a more civilized time but not at all stuffy. Upon leaving, the owner (in his finest attempt at English) was so gracious, personally thanking us Americans for coming to stay. We would love to visit again and believe Trip Advisor readers would enjoy it, too.
