Our family of 4 spent two nights in Macken in between the larger cities of Frankfurt and Cologne. The location is convenient for day trips along the Moselle River. We had a rental car, so we visited castles, wineries, and postcard worthy small towns. Trying to stay here without a car would be complicated. Exploring the house was fun since it is obviously a historic structure and had lots of character - imagine timber framing, carved staircases, low ceilings, and shuttered windows. We tried to guess how the house might have looked 200 years ago and how it may have been used. For our family, the extent to which we used the house was simply sleeping and showering. The village of just a few hundred people is very quiet...like REALLY quiet - with the exception of the steadfast hourly chiming of the church bells next door. We found that the house was clean and easy to access when we arrived. There was plenty of space in the interior for us to spread out our stuff and reorganize all of our bags, as well as a well sized parking place. We did not get to meet the host, but the instructions were detailed and very clear. We didn’t use the kitchen, but it seemed capable enough to prepare small, simple meals. There was no food in the house, so if you were to plan on cooking, you would want to budget in a trip to the grocery store prior to arrival. Also, we didn’t use the interior sauna, but that seemed like a nice feature. Honestly, the most useful amenity for our family was the washing machine/dryer combo machine. We never were able to locate the wireless internet...I didn’t contact the host to report this because, again, our time in the house was limited to mostly sleeping...but it was advertised as having wireless internet; so if that’s something that’s important to you, perhaps it is wise to verify accessibility ahead of time. All in all, the Macken house was an interesting experience that served it’s purpose well enough for us. In our experience, two nights was more than enough time. I believe this location is best suited for families seeking a quiet “get away from it all” respite from the hustle and bustle of city life.
