About Us

Welcome to the Mühlenvilla at the Bützow harbour

In our family-run bed & breakfast, 5 unique, beautifully furnished accommodations await you. From the 65m² luxury suite to the 10m² tea house, there is something for everyone. Each of our rooms is equipped with original furniture from the Victorian and Art Nouveau periods, small details such as an antique smoking table from the 1920s or an old folding game table complete the extraordinary flair of this heritage-listed guesthouse. 

On our 10,000m² waterfront property you can relax and unwind while a welcome drink is served. You can swim in the pool or in the Warnow River, walk along the Kiebitz meadows, watch wild birds or enjoy a massage and other wellness treatments in our spa.

Visit our carefully restored and designed Mühlenvilla from the Victorian period. We look forward to welcoming you as our guests. 

Michel & Neil, your hosts

Attractions in and around Bützow


In Bützow we can recommend the restaurant Bützowerhof, the takeaway Ramo (Pakistani), and the ice cream pavilion at the old harbour. In Schwaan, the Chilihouse (Indian-Pakistani) is a good choice.

How about a "Fine Wine Tasting"? You can find information here..

Bicycle and hiking tours

A total of 23 bike tours and 16 long-distance bike tours (e.g. Berlin-Copenhagen, Berlin-Rostock, Hamburg-Rügen or Krakow-Waren-müritz) lead through the island town of Bützow. If you only want to make a day trip, Warnemünde, Schwerin, Wismar, Pöhl or Schwaan are not far away.

For hikers and nature lovers there are numerous protected meadows, forests and lakes along the Warnow, which invite you to hike and walk. Directly behind the house are the remains of a medieval Slavic settlement.


Visit Bützow Castle, which was formerly used as the bishop's residence and widow's seat of Duchess Sophie-Charlotte. The town hall, the collegiate church, the museum "Krummes Haus" and the miniature town are also worth a visit. 

Day trips by car

Visit the castle and the impressive old town of Güstrow or the "Boitiner Steintanz" in Tarnow, which still puzzles researchers today. Schwerin, the "city of seven lakes and forests", is also always worth a visit. 

In less than an hour, you are at the Baltic Sea coast. Here, you should definitely visit the Baltic resorts of Warnemünde, Heiligendamm and Kühlungsborn. And of course, the Hanseatic city of Rostock with its seaport and maritime flair should not be missed.


Here is what our guests say

In Bützow die Villa an der Mühle
war wohl das Schönste unserer Ziele
Auf der Rad-Rund-Tour ‘Rostock-Schwerin’
führte das Glück uns hier hin.

Als erstes: Vielen lieben Dank!

Nach elf Tagen mit dem Rad unterwegs war eure Villa eine RIESEN Ueberraschung! Ich war erstaunt von der schönen Einrichtung, dem herzlichen Empfang, den Tieren (besonders vom Pfau) und dem Garten an sich. Irgendwo habe ich ein Schild mit “Oase” gesehen und das beschreibt perfekt euren schönen Fleck Erde!
Nach einer ereignisreichen +  abwechslungsreichen Radtour genau
das Richtige zum Energie tanken + entspannen.
Leider (im Nachhinein) bin ich nur eine Nacht hier. Bei der schönen Atmospähre wäre ich gerne länger geblieben.
Ich werde von der Mühlenvilla schwärmen + euch weiterempfehlen!

Grüsse aus Berlin!

P.S. Die Gestaltung des Frühstücks mit der “ Bestellkarte” kannte ich so noch nicht…. Find ich aber klasse!!!

Preis – Leistung hervorragend, Garten wunderschön, tolle Aussicht, Frühstück lecker.
Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt, schöne gemütliche Einrichtung, sehr individuell.
Bestens im Riesen-Luxus-Bett geschlafen, gutgelaunte Kids, traumhaftes Bad.

Vielen Dank, wir kommen wieder, dann zum Paddeln.

Wozu nach Afrika fliegen?!
Zebras, Strausse und Kamele haben
wir in Sternberg gesehen!
Wozu Steinkreise in Schottland suchen?!
Bei Boitin gibt es gleich 3 davon!
Wozu in Irland rudern?!
Auf der Warnow kann man herrlich
paddeln und Libellen zählen!
Wozu in den Süden fahren?!
Sonne, 32 Grad im Schatten und
über 20 Grad Wassertemperatur hat
auch M-V zu bieten!
Und alles nur 2 Stunden von
Hamburg entfernt….
Wir haben den Kurzurlaub genossen.

Schon vorbei!
Ein Ort, an dem man sich sofort wohl fühlt!
Man merkt, dass hier, liebevoll, jedes Detail gewollt ist, ob Einrichtung des alten Hauses, oder der “wilde” aber wunderschöne, ökologisch wertvolle Garten!
1000 Dank für die schöne, viel zu kurze Zeit hier in der Mühlenvilla zu Bützow, geht an Michel und Neil (immer offen und bemüht den Aufenthalt so angenehm
wie möglich zu gestalten).
Die Strasse hört man nur wenn man das möchte. Die Mückenstiche sind der geringe Preis für die Flussidylle. Die Gegend gespickt mit vielen Seen lädt ein alles zu erkunden…. per Rad, Bötchen oder mit  dem Kfz.
Die Verpflegung hier in der Mühlenvilla (viel ist aus eigener Produktion: Eier, Marmelade…) ist köstlich und am meisten hat mich die Grillmöglichkeit beruhigt.

Nochmal innigsten Dank… ich glaube wir kommen wieder.
