The Skipper House is a very cool, unique space in a beautiful and quiet village. Dirk is a great host and has done an excellent job restoring and renovating the historic house into a great vacation cottage.

Dirk’s place is a wonderful place to stay while exploring the Rhine Valley. Kaub is very cute and left out of most of the American guide books but it is a great place to explore. Dirk was a fabulous host and replied quickly to all my inquiries. The place was perfect for our famil…

Very cozy and charming home in a quiet Rhine village. We loved returning each night. Dirk’s place is full of interesting art, ship models, and books about the Rhein ... we also had fun cooking our meals on the cool old Gaggenau stove. Danke Dirk!

Tina, I hope very much to welcome you again! Thanks, Dirk....And the historic Gaggenau stove was originally in the house, when I bought it, ... is from about 1950, electric energy and wood combined, and I think very very very seldom...;-)
