(BavariaBen) ...The Blumbauernhof is located in Gutach - which is just about the center of the Black Forest. This is one of my favorite villages in Germany but it is very small with no train station. When I am traveling alone or via public transportation I tend to stay in the more convenient villages along a train line but this year we were traveling by automobile so Gutach was a perfect location to homebase for a few days. There are many farms with Zimmer Frei (Privatzimmer) available in this part of the Forest and that is always my preference for lodging. I have attempted to stay at the Blumbauernhof on previous trips but it never worked out. This year I was able to secure three doublerooms for our group of three couples.

All the rooms were large and comfortable with private bathroom, TV and balcony (with a great view of the valley). Some of the rooms had a small kitchenette with refrigerator, sink and coffee pot.

The Aufenthaltesraum (lounge with TV) was large and also served as the Frühstückzimmer. Several pictures throughout the room attesting to the history of this farm and it's ancestors.

Aufenthaltesraum

Breakfast at the Blumbauernhof consisted of the typical foods that you would expect to find at farm in the Black Forest. Good strong coffee, juices, rolls, breads, wursts, cheeses, jams, jellies, and fruit. Frau Blum was an excellent hostess and very attentive to our group.

Frühstückzimmer

The most famous building in the Black Forest might be the Vogtsbauernhof - a centuries old farm that is the centerpiece of the Schwarzwälder Freilichtmuseum - an outdoor museum just a short drive from the Blumbauernhof. The museum has six furnished farmhouses from the past 400 years. The Vogtsbauernhof (1612) - the centerpiece - is the only farmhouse at the museum that was not moved from another location. The grounds include mills, bakehouse, distillery, chapel and blacksmith shops. Very interesting to help visualize what it must have been like to raise a family centuries ago in the Black Forest.

An excellent restaurant located an easy 5-10 minute walk from the Blumbauernhof is the Gutacher Rössle - Very friendly wait staff and an upper tier terrace perfect for dining in good weather. The menu suited us well...
