This beautiful Jerusalem zimmer is located in one of the capital's most picturesque areas. The Almond Tree is at the center of the beautiful village of Ein Kerem (meaning Spring of the Vineyard in Hebrew), and is also home to owners Yona and Moshko Susner.
Ein Kerem, a historical town thought to be the birth place of John the Baptist is a popular pilgrimage site for many Christian visitors arriving in Ein Karem as part of spiritual tours to visit the many churches and monasteries in the area.

All fixtures are brand new, with laundry, heating, Internet access, cable and of course a fully equipped kitchen.
The dining area
With amazing views overlooking Ein Kerem and the Jerusalem mountains, the large patio offers a private
surrounding for family meals.
A balcony with self grown mint and other home grown vegetables is available for use in the attached garden and a hammock is available as well.
As a supplement to hosting guests in their pleasant cottage Yona and Moshko make a great effort to advance organic vegetables, recycling rain water for garden irrigation, manufacturing their own compost, and advancing "Farmer Culture" to the best of their ability.
The location of the zimmer is very isolated but only a 15 minute drive from the center of Jerusalem and a
two minute walk to amazing restaurants, coffee shops and art galleries in the Ein Kerem village.
A great restaurant worth visiting is Pundak Ein Kerem (meaning the Ein Kerem Inn) on the main road in Ein Kerem. The food is great and reasonably priced.

A message from Yona, your hostess.
As the owners, we also have enjoyed home hospitality while traveling in Europe, South America and Africa and have a great deal of positive experiences due to our direct contact with the local people and through them with the "place" itself. As a result, we are happy to have the opportunity to allow our own guests a direct and unmediated connection to Ein Kerem and to ourselves as well. I would be happy to advice you on day trips in the area and with any other enquiries that you may have.
