perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

I rented the house for 2 nights for 5 of us. It is exactly as described. The lake is gorgeous, the waterfall is easy to get to and great to observe. We walked into town for fresh croissants in the morning, spent evenings sitting in the kitchen with a bottle of wine (the weather didn't cooperate enough for outdoor relaxation, but the patio has a great view of the lake.) Multiple activities are within easy reach, and this is a great place to come back and unwind.

  • 5 of 5

"This is very nice old country wood house with low ceilings, old fashion interior and family atmosphere. We (4 adults and 4 children) had there a plenty of space and felt very comfortable. There are amazingly furnished kitchen, cozy beds, everything is clean. The only thing that was missing for us is an internet connection.

It is good located: close to the lake, waterfall, the aerial passenger tramway is nearby also. The owners are living in close proximity. Exceptionally friendly landlords, we enjoyed a lot from their hospitality. I will recommend this rental as a good place to stay during vacation in Central Switzerland."

  • 5 of 5

A great place in a great location. Our stay in an old Swiss family home in the small village in central Switzerland was a very special experience for our family. Heidi's parents live in the house next door and they are very friendly and helpful as is Heidi. The places we wanted to visit were within easy reach and so too was the nearest supermarket for supplies. The ideal holiday home. Highly recommended.
