The winding, small wooden stair to the second floor may be a challenge for older guests and creaky floorboards a problem, especially for those in the one downstairs bedroom, but neither bothered us. We had trouble staying connected to wifi, a problem in much of Alsace, we discovered, but the owners invited us into their private area to help us with it.
The experience of living in an authentic 18th century Alsacian dwelling but with modern conveniences was delight. There are only three bedrooms (all doubles) in the B and B, and the hostess, Laurence, and her family offer warm hospitality and lots of help with the wifi and directions and even trips to the nearby airport. The antique chests and wardrobes and other furnishings are lovely, and the beds and high quality bed linens and towels and the private baths offer modern comfort. Delicious breakfasts --what bread and jams and cheeses! --and the hostess spent time with each guest. What a warm, wonderful family. They live in the attached family home. Guests have access to a small patio with a swimming pool in warm weather and can use the kitchen for coffee or tea or the small fridge to store things throughout the day. We loved meeting the other guests, too, over breakfasts at the big table. Many had been there before and found La Stoob as appealing as we did!
