The grounds are green and pleasant, if you cross the small bridge you’ll find a small pond and lawn, then pine forest area, nice to walk. The main house is nice, too.
Then comes the “ not nice” - having heard of a “ famouse “ apfelstrudel we went to a cafe and ordered one. It was the worst apfelstrudel ever. Basically, you can’t even call it an apfelstrudel - it’s just a sliced apple cooked with sugar. Period. No crust. Looks bad, tastes like a sugar bomb. Overpriced as hell. My family being from Europe occasionally makes apfelstrudel at home - well, the one from Castelinho Caracol is a shame. My German friends whom I sent a picture after a visit, asking if that’s what they call an apfelstrudel in Germany said a loud “NOOO”. Oh, and the owners wanted to charge me 10% of the total order (?!) for “ using their cup” - as I asked for a cup of hot water. It was removed after I complained to the owner - who first was very insisting on charging. Well, this visit left a bad aftertaste. Will not come back and don’t recommend. There are many nicer places in Gramado and Caracol where they treat you better.

The manor is nice and well preserved. The on-site cafe has the most amazing Apfelstrudel with cream. It also has other things to eat. Minimal 10 reais per person Entry fee is cash only. Cafe takes cards.

Old but preserved nice house with shed, sawmill, and other farm related equipment/machines used by the pioneers that started Canela region. Real history lesson for all ages. Also, restaurant offer a very nice Apple Strudel, must taste! There is no access with stroller, and there is a steel and narrow stairs to second floor.

Paga-se R$ 10,00 para entrar e conhecer a edificação. É a única coisa que vale a pena fazer.
A torta de maçã é uma tristeza. Nunca vi torta sem massa! Vejam as fotos: é aquele horror mesmo. Um monte de recheio jogado no prato, sem nenhuma apresentação. E por R$ 25,00. O sorvete que acompanha é industrializado.
O chá é um melado. Aí fica doce com doce!
Sinceramente, não é uma casa de chá que se apresente.

Overpriced. Overrated. It's not an apple pie in fact (no pastry). Just sugary apple with industrialized ice cream (a cheap one). No more choices. Apple tea also sugary. Pay R$ 10,00 entrance fee plus R$ 25,00 for the "pie" and don't remember how much more for the tea.
If you wanna visit (only if you are passing by), just pay the entrance fee to visit the Museum (but there is no information in English) and eat somewhere else.

We only visited the grounds which it did not cost us anything since the house itself was closed. Nice bucolic setting, antique farming equipment, good photo ops.

The sightseeing is nice but everything else it's just not worth it. It's absurdly overpriced, the apple strudel is shameful and the variety simply doesn't exist. To add insult to injury you have to pay just to get in the coffee area and you only find out that the place only take cash on the line in a little room to pay. Really, don't bother.

Nice historical place. Check out the garden and small stream around the house. Don't miss their homemade apple strudel and apple tea!

The place is simple, nothing different. The apfelstrudell is very expensive and you will pay 35 reais to eat it. Really, just keep going in your trip, don't bother to stop over there.
