An introduction to Gutshaus Gross Toitin

How would you describe Gutshaus Gross Toitin in a nutshell?

The manor itself was probably built in the second half of the 19th century and has a particularly attractive location at the outskirts of a settlement with essentially 270 degrees of open views onto a river valley.

Please tell us bit about the history of Gutshaus Groß Toitin.

The history is quite diverse. It has a long, rather happy history. I think the first mentioning of the property was actually on Valentine’s Day in 1305, and then it prospered over several hundred years as a fiefdom.

Then came the tragic part for a lot of the German country estates. After the second world war, many of the East German estates had fallen into disrepair. We tried to rebuild all of the important architectural elements where possible to uphold and reestablish the classic character. Now it again gives you the authentic feeling of a Prussian country estate from the 19th century.

What was your inspiration to rent Gutshaus Groß Toitin out to holiday guests?

We like having guests. This property is unique in the sense that in the Prussian highland, there are only a few luxury properties open to the public. There are a lot of simple hotels, but showing people how the estate looked back in its heyday was the primary motivation to open it up to guests.

How would you describe the atmosphere of Gutshaus Groß Toitin, with the parks around it?

For one thing, the natural surrounding is a unique one. Off the Baltic Coast, we have a coastal climate with quickly changing skies, particularly in the morning and evening, with very strong colors. And you have the complete openness of space. The population is not very dense up there, so you can look for hundreds of meters through the countryside without any settlements disturbing the eye.

This is, in essence, what we tried to capture for the atmosphere in the house, working a lot with natural colors, and with textures rather than with glamour. The outside is untouched nature, which is unique in Germany, and it is reflected on the inside with the signature of 19th century German-Prussian architecture. The colors are blended to be soothing to the eye, and the shapes reflect the history of the property.

What has been the most rewarding to you personally about renting out the two holiday villas?

That’s very simple — that our guests are happy and that they come back. For us it’s all about making holiday guests happy and providing them with an experience that exceeds their expectations, both in terms of facilities, but more importantly in terms of service.

Our staff try to accommodate each and every wish that guests may have. That’s what sets us apart from any regular hotel experience.

Can you describe what would be the perfect stay at Gutshaus Groß Toitin for you?

The perfect holiday for me is one where you are secluded from any form of mass tourism; you’re on your own but taken care of and you can completely relax and forget the hustle and bustle of the world.

After two or three days maybe you can explore the area more. There’s the whole Baltic Sea and the nature and history of Pomerania to see. And eating and drinking are a big part of it too.

Do you also cater for weddings and celebrations at Gutshaus Groß Toitin?

Absolutely. We are a small property on purpose because we want the seclusion and an intimate setting. At the same time, it’s ideal for any form of small celebration where you want to be with a group of friends or family without disruption from the outside world.

We have a chef who can offer a seven-course dinner in a private dining hall. Our estate can also provide the perfect retreat for companies or organisations to brainstorm on ideas and similar activities.

Gutshaus Gross Toitin rooms & rates

Currently the estate of Gutshaus Groß Toitin has two renovated holiday villas that we rent out — the Manor House with four en-suite rooms and about 350 square meters, and what we call the Coachman’s Cottage.

The Manor House reflects more the grandeur of the 19th century, whereas the Coachman’s Cottage offers three en-suite rooms and has more of a country cottage character.

We put a lot of emphasis on gourmet services, with access to our wine cellar and large kitchens where guests are invited to cook. Much of what we have revolves around well-being in the sense of relaxing, eating well, sitting in front of one of the open fireplaces and enjoying a time out.

The historic brick wine cellar holds a careful selection of European and New World vintages and is open to guests.

The idea is that when you come to Gutshaus Groß Toitin, you have complete privacy, but on the other hand, you don’t have to be burdened with being on the property by yourself. Our basic services offer breakfast, which is an assortment of ecological and regional products — something I hope will provide an authentic experience of the Baltic Coast — and housekeeping. Beyond that, we can basically organise anything the guests wish, whether it be a private chef, a music session, a chauffeur, guided tours, and so on. We try to accommodate any request.

Things to do in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern & Jarmen

  • Art / Culture
  • Massages / Treatments
  • Yoga classes
  • Golf
  • Hiking
  • Cycling
  • Horseback riding
  • Fishing

We offer guided tours to the islands and cultural tours to the most important castles and manor houses in the region, which you can’t normally access because they’re private property. One of the highlights is a picnic at one of the castles considered to be the most important Renaissance palace in Northern Germany.

We offer nature tours as well, where a biologist takes our guests on one of the most eco-diverse rivers of Europe. You can see the beavers and the otters and much of the bird life there.

Finally, we also have hunting and fishing tours into some of the most dense hunting grounds in Germany.

I would also recommend not only the old Emperor’s spas on the island of Usedom that have been rebuilt and are interesting for day tours, but also the island of Rügen and the UNESCO world heritage city of Stralsund with the Ozeaneum, which I think has been voted the best museum in Europe for two or three times in a row.

There’s a lot to do. One or two weeks would not be enough to see all that this part of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is about.

The location of Gutshaus Gross Toitin

In many ways, what makes the area so fascinating is that it’s completely off the beaten track. It is a countryside uncluttered with villages and towns, people, cars and roads, but open to the eye, where you get the feeling that humans aren’t the dominant species but take second role to nature. We chose the Baltic Coast in Germany, particularly the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern or Pomeranian landscape, because the feeling that nature is the more important element still exists here.

We have a rich cultural history of Prussian country estates and there’s a reemergence of the region with some of the estates being renovated and some interesting tourist attractions being established. Quite close to the property are a multitude of historic castles and homesteads that can be visited and will give one very interesting insights into this part of Germany.

When is the best time to visit Mecklenburg-Vorpommern?

Most people think that the Baltic Sea coast is only for summer vacations, and it might be true in some areas, but although the estate is beautiful in the summer, all of the seasons are nice.

In spring, nature comes out in full display of colours and fragrances. You really see it and experience it.

Autumn is harvest time. We have a large vegetable garden and plan to extend to a little farm. You can get the goodies right from the garden and cook what you like.

Winter is what I think is almost nicest because it actually snows up here, which you don’t get everywhere. And sitting by the fire with a glass of wine makes the winter experience more enjoyable.
