About Juliet Fowles

I am from the UK and fell in love with Interlaken on my first visit in 2001. I now live here permanently with my son Charles.

I hope to make your first stay in Interlaken as special as mine was, or your returning visit one to remember.

Juliet Fowles purchased this house in 2010

What makes this house unique

The Boat house is a free standing house located directly on the banks of the beautiful river Aare allowing swimming and kayaking from your doorstep. A tranquil location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a week at the Boat House in September 2013. We really enjoyed our stay and can strongly recommend it. Although small, it had everything we needed and we found it very comfortable. It was great to sit on the balcony and look across the river. There always seemed to be something happening, be it pleasure boats, trains, joggers, or the changing clouds across the valley. You could easily walk along the riverside path into Interlaken or beyond to Unterseen. Interlaken was a good centre for exploring the whole region: the Thunersee and Brienzersee, the Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald valleys, the Giessbach and Reichenbach Falls, and the three passes (Grimsel, Furka, Susten). We also had a lovely day in Bern, conveniently reached by

train. We thought the Boat House was a great place to stay and there are many

more things to do if we came again.

The Boat House was the PERFECT stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I would highly recommend the boat house to anyone interested in staying in Interlaken. It is hands down the best place we could have imagined to stay. As soon as we arrived we were in awe over the breathtaking views. Although it is not directly in town, we took the bikes along the river and were there within 5 minutes and loved every second of the scenic ride. We had the best of both worlds, a beautiful ride to town, and our own personal secluded house with the best views in Interlaken. It was the first stop of our honeymoon and the best stop! It is absolutely perfect for a couple looking to have a romantic holiday. The accommodations were terrific, Juliet made sure we were in good hands. I have nothing but positive things to say about the boat house. If you are contemplating the boat house over a hotel in town, choose the boat house!!! We would not have wanted our stay in Interlaken any other way!! Thank you to Juliet for making Interlaken so memorable for us!!

Great view from the balcony!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our stay at the Boat House in Interlaken! The apartment is small, but has everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is even a washer and dryer in the basement of the apartment. The apartment is located right on the river and has unbelievable views of the surrounding mountains from inside and especially from the balcony. We managed to walk from the train station to the apartment with our luggage in about 20 minutes. It can be difficult since the path along the river is stone, but it wasn't too bad for us. There is no parking at the boat house, so a taxi would need to drop you off at the parking lot a few hundred feet down the path. The bikes provided with the apartment made subsequent trips back into Interlaken and around town very easy. The owner was very easy to deal with, always being available for questions or concerns. She provided a great package of suggestions and left us a bottle of wine as well! I would recommend the apartment for active couples who want to be away from the center of town and enjoy the quiet nights on the river. We cant wait to come back to Interlaken again!

Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

What a stop. It´s location on the riverbank was only 20 minutes walk from Interlaken OST station and is perfect for day trips. We stayed during winter and absolutely loved the cosy feel to the place, also the central heating was very good. The Boat House is compact, but was well equipped and suited our needs perfectly. The host was very easy to deal with and even though we never met, everything was as described. The information folder provided was very handy and answered any questions we had. Just perfect and we hope to come back again soon.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth stop on our trip and by far the best. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and the view from the balcony was unreal! Juliet was really helpful and sent us lots of information on things to do in Interlaken and the surrounding area. Hope to return one day.

A wondeful honeymoon spent at the Boat House

  • 5 of 5

We found the Boat House perfect for what we wanted. It is comfortable and quiet. It is compact but has everything we needed for 2 people and is well equipped. The best thing is definitely the fantastic balcony and amazing view that this provides. We spent nearly all our time on the balcony for breakfast, dinner and relaxation. The bikes were really appreciated too, great for getting into the town and train station. We stayed for a week and will be back for sure.

Paragliding, Skydiving, Hiking, Hang gliding, Canyon Jumping, sledding, snowshoeing, skiing and snowboarding are activities availalbe during the winter.

For the less adventurous and families there heaps of famous train journeys, boat rides on either Lake Thun or Lake Brienz and lots of day that include amazing playing parks. There are children friendly hiking routes, with bbq spots on the way.

The 1st of August is National Swiss Day. The day has continuous events, parades and is capped of with one off with a brilliant fireworks at 10pm followed by live bands.

Basically Interlaken has so much to do, I am still working my through the list. The safety, simple style of life and beauty of the place is why I feel lucky to live here. I truly cannot recommend it enough.
