The house is called the dwarf school and is the annex of the "Alte Schule Kirmutscheid", which is listed inside and out. The school was founded in 1829. It is located away in the forest and is interesting for nature lovers, hikers, visitors to the nearby Nürbrugring and lovers of historical buildings. It can accommodate up to 4 people.
Dogs are welcome guests and cost €3/dog/night (payable on site).

The space
small half-timbered house with terrace and plenty of space outside. On the ground floor there are living room, kitchen with dining area, wardrobe, bathroom. Upstairs is a bedroom with 2 single beds (1x2m each) and a bedroom with double bed (160x200).

The house is suitable for lovers of authentic, historic buildings and nature lovers. If you're looking for modern comfort, you've come to the wrong place. However, those who want to trace life in the "good old days“, which were not always so good, are cordially invited. The passage width of the doors is smaller than usual, one of the doors measures only 50cm width. The stairs up are narrow, but easy to walk. In the bedroom, standing height of 175cm is only guaranteed on the outer wall.
The dwarf school is very nice for 2 people, good for 3 and still sufficient for 4 people.
The secluded location in the forest is distinguished for hikers, nature lovers and Nürburgring visitors.
The house is heated by an automatically functioning pellet oven.
The kitchen is equipped with stove/oven, fridge, cooking water appliance, coffee maker, toaster. You will find a dining service, a sufficient number of cooking utensils and other kitchen equipment.
In the living room a sofa and 2 armchairs invite you to relax, the satellite TV receives the usual programs. Internet access is not available here, as it is not possible. Mobile phone reception is better or worse depending on the provider, SMS are always delivered.

Where you’ll be

Wirft, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany

The entrance to the Nürburgring GP Loop and Welcome Center is 10 km away and can be reached in minutes directly via the B528.
On public holidays and summer weekends, however, you can also hear the departure and departure traffic via the B258.
The town of Adenau, through which the Nordschleife of the Nürburgringe runs, is 6 km away and offers all shopping opportunities.
Bonn is 55km away, Koblenz is 68km away, and Spa Francorchamps is 100km away.
The border with Belgium is 46 km away.

The Alte Schule is located in the core area of the large nature conservation project Obere Ahr-Hocheifel, which protects the rare meadow landscape and the water system of the Obere Ahr
The Federation for Nature Conservation writes:
The project area "Obere Ahr-Hocheifel“ is part of a low population density and high proportion of forests. A special feature of the open meadow valleys embedded therein is their seclusion over several kilometres - today a rarity. The 3287 hectare core area is of great importance for nature conservation. The rivers are often still close to nature and offer diverse habitats for a species-rich wildlife. An indication of the high value of the structurally rich waters in the core area are the good stocks of the river guide species kingfisher, water blackbird and mountain stilts.

Ich freue mich auf jeden Gast und nehme von jedem eine Erfahrung mit. Alle meine Unterkünfte, außer dem Grünen Appartement und der Wohnung nahe der Nordschleife befinden sich in historischen Häusern, die unter Denkmalschutz stehen. Heutige Bequemlichkeitsstandarts sind hier nicht zu erwarten, dafür aber ein Erleben der Wohnsituation von früheren Generationen und völlige Individualität. Am liebsten beherberge ich Gäste mit Hunden, in meiner Unterkunft leben gleichfalls Hunde. Wer keine Haustiere mag, sollte hier nicht einkehren. Die Unterkünfte sind ganz besonders für Wanderfreunde und Landschaftsliebhaber geeignet und - aufgrund der Nähe zum Nürburgring - für Ringbesucher. Der Nürburgring war der Grund, warum ich einst in diese Gegend zog, in der ich nun schon lange zuhause bin.

About the review: I like to rate my guests on request, otherwise I refrain from doing so solely for data protection reasons and because I believe that I am not entitled to a review of other people's behavior.
That's how I want it myself. I don't need a review, but prefer to have a face-to-face conversation with the guests I encourage to point out shortcomings so that I have a chance to turn them off.
If guests would like to leave a review, which is their right, please note that the item "Comfort" cannot be appropriate here, as there can be no comfort in a 190-year-old, authentic building, and find it obsolete to point this out in reviews, although it can already be read in the description.
The same applies to criticism of the 'carpets' that I read. These are necessary, because guests and especially their dogs would not pay attention to the ancient wooden floor and ruin it, so it is essential to lay carpets on it.
