Historic German Farmhouse

The Ski House of the Day is a Sauerland mansion called the Becker-Hendricks house in Germany:

This historic farmhouse was built in 1798...!  Check out the arched barn-like front entrance:

Inside there are furnishings from generations spanning the centuries:

The kitchen is compact, and rather ordinary...until you notice those massive log beams and the ceiling that has probably seen centuries of cooking (!):

Here's a one-of-a-kind stairway...

The historic house has four bedrooms that look quaint and cheerful...

This ski house is in the town of Brilon (Hoppecke), and is only about 10 minutes from skiing at the small (good for beginners) Willingen Ski Resort.  Not your typical rental ski house...but what a way to experience some real German history. Wunderbar!
