To rent is a detached family house which is fully equipped and in a sunny location with a garden in Herborn Uckersdorf. Large terraces, two bathrooms, wireless internet access (WiFi; 64.000 DSL) and proximity to the Herborner bird park, the cave "Herbstlabyrinth" (open to public) and the old town and near the forest and Herborn's excellent accessibility are key features of this vacation property. It also offers ideal business opportunities for relaxation. Medieval towns with castles and palaces, recreational areas and access to trails "Rothaarsteig" and "Westerwaldsteig" document the idyllic location of the house.
The best way to get to Uckersdorf is by car. Nearby runs the A45. Between Siegen and Giessen, there are two motorway exits. From the exit Herborn-West you reach the property within five minutes. Despite this favorable position you don't hear or see the highway. With public transport Uckersdorf is also available, for example, from the railway station by bus in Herborn. The schedule is thinned out at weekends. In summer, the so-called "Blue Line" takes cyclists with their bikes to local attractions. (And by the way it should be noted for winter travellers: In the distance there are some lifts that are sometimes operated.)
The holiday home seems particularly suitable for those seeking relaxation from the Rhine-Main area and the Cologne area. Within one hour you will reach your "House of the Sun", for example, from the Frankfurt metropolitan area. The short trip over the weekend is just as valuable as some work days, you can spend away from the office, if one wants to work in peace and seclusion, for example, to work on concepts or prepare presentations. A wireless access (WiFi; DSL 64.000) ensures the connection with the virtual world. A telephone is in the house and can be used free of charge for domestic landline calls.
The village itself has a good infrastructure: medium-sized supermarket, bakery, hairdresser, bank with ATM, church, playground and bird park.
Nearby are a wildlife park, a deer park, a modern swimming pool and many others. The range of restaurants in Herborn itself is quite diverse.
Since the house is as a second home owner-occupied, it is equipped extent. To name is primarily a large stock of books especially for children. Above all, families come at their expense even if it rains.
The bed situation is as follows: There is a master bedroom (double bed 2x1, 80m), a terrace room with king size bed (2x1, 40m) and two rooms with single beds, under which one can draw forth a normal mattress. Furthermore, there is a room with two king size mattresses - so 2 x 1.40 m x 2.00 m. (Theoretically, you can put the single mattresses in the living room and so transform the living room into a bedroom.) That makes five rooms with at least two beds each, two more rooms with bed sofas and a total of 16 people sleeping here, possibly even 19 when provided mattresses are used. For eight people - if it may be tight even ten - is enough space at the kitchen table, if one extends the dining table by two extension leaves. The living room and the room with the fire place also have a sofa bed where another two people can sleep each. Additional mattresses are in the house and could be brought by the guests as well.
We recommend the following restaurants in the area: Gutshof Herborn (traditional restaurant, own brewery, large playground, reasonable prices) - Austr. 81a, Herborn; Tassili Herborn (Mexican restaurant, affordable dining offer) - Konrad-Adenauer-Str. 1a, Herborn; Gyros Grill (Greek restaurant, fast food with an extended dining room, priced okay) - Hintersand 1, Herborn; Hohe Schule (German restaurant, lovely outdoor area, the best restaurant in Herborn, higher prices) - Schulhofstraße 3-5, Herborn
The entire house is at the guests' disposal! Wi-Fi, washing machine, garden, terraces, balconies, desk ... Our house is the house for the guests only!
The house was our family home and will continue to be used by us when there are no guests. Guests rent the entire house, so we normally do not meet. Our friend Silvia lets guests into the house - if the key is not stored at the house. The guests have a lot of freedom - but always a contact person (Silvia) on the spot when it is needed. The owner (Gerrit) is easily accessible by telephone or via airbnb.
A doctor is in the neighboring village Burg: Drs Carina and Werner Koch, Burger Straße 50 - Herborn-Burg

This includes cleanliness and respect for the property of others as well as it excludes commercial use, sublease, transfer of property to another, or the like, or the accommodation of third parties or celebrating parties. As we charge only 50 Euros for cleaning, we ask you that you leave the house tidy with all used dishes cleaned.

Das Haus in Uckersdorf haben wir ursprünglich als vierköpfige Familie bewohnt. Derzeit lebe ich in Frankfurt oder bin auf Reisen - wenn der Beruf es zulässt. Wenn Sie gerne unser Haus mieten wollen, nehmen Sie unkompliziert mit mir Kontakt auf - am liebsten per Mail. Ich bin naturverbunden und umweltbewusst. So mieten Sie beispielsweise ein Haus mit Solarkollektoren auf dem Dach, die das Warmwasser aufbereiten und einem Kamin, der im Winter die konventionelle Heizung unterstützt. Und: Eine große Zisterne speichert Regenwasser, das unser Hauswasserwerk in die Toiletten pumpt.
The house in Uckersdorf was originally used by our family of four. Right now I live in Frankfurt or I am travelling around if my job allows me to do so. If you would like to rent the house, make easy contact with me - preferably by e-mail. I am close to nature and environment friendly. You hire a house with solar panels on the roof, which prepare the hot water and a fireplace, which supports the conventional heating in winter. And: A large cistern collects rain water for the toilets.
