Storybook perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I arrived after dark. Renate was nice enough to wait up for us. She was very gracious and showed us everything in the apartment. The apartment was warm, cozy, very clean, & had everything we needed for our 4 night stay.

So we got to wake up to the most amazingly beautiful & most majestic place we had ever visited. The morning was cold with clear blue skies against white capped mountains. It was absolutely breathtaking! We just sat there drinking our morning coffee staring out the window at the mountains and all the beautiful homes as well as a beautiful Church right across the street. We couldn't wait to get out and explore, so everyday we hiked around the village as far as we could walk. We don't ski but we saw a ski lift and a lot of skiers going up and coming down the mountain. There is a bank with an ATM for cash, there is also a cute little store with everything we needed to cook breakfast, lunch, & dinner. There are a couple restaurants in the village and we had dinner out one night. On the last day we drove down to Lucerne and all the other little villages along the way sightseeing and stopping at a restaurant for dessert & coffee. It was a vacation of a lifetime! I didn't really know what I was booking when I booked this gem, I just liked the Swiss look of the house and the fact that you are in a valley surrounded by mountains. We are from Tennessee in the USA and we have beautiful mountains here as well. But this was different. I'm so glad that I chose Isenthal, Switzerland. I feel like it is a hidden little village in a mountain that everyone needs to experience. Renate and her children are precious and she did her best to understand two Americans with a southern accent.

I highly recommend this village in Isenthal and I highly recommend staying at this lovely home.

Warm Regards,

Jill & Todd Schrock

My wife and I stayed four nights at this lovely apartment. The review will be in three parts.

1. HOST: Renate was a wonderful host, she was friendly, very informative and available. She was very knowledgeable about Isenthal and surrounding area. She gave us great tips on tourist activities, local restaurants, and local transportation.

2. THE APARTMENT: Located right in the center of the village, This is a ground floor apartment with a very large living, sleeping, kitchen area with all amenities including free WI-FI. The bathroom was clean and modern. There is also a second bedroom with a bunk bed. Outside there is a nice patio to relax and enjoy the surrounding panorama. There's a free parking lot located less than a minute from the apartment. Also, there is a bus stop located less than a minute away.

3. OVERALL: We fell in love with Isenthal (population around 500), it is such a beautiful village located in the Swiss mountains. The village atmosphere is so relaxed and peaceful, a true getaway from all the fast paced noises of city life. If you want to enjoy nature, this is the place to visit. A true hidden gem.

Angelo & Donna

P.S. Enjoy the road to Isenthal.

Beautiful location! Perfect for our family of four.

  • 4 of 5

I'll be honest that the drive/road up to this location was not the most fun. But it's worth it for the views! The town is quaint and quiet and a great location for visiting Lucerne and the surrounding areas. The apartment is on the ground floor and just the right size for us. The kitchen had all we needed and there was free parking right up the block. If I were coming back to the area I would definitely stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was easy to find when we drove from Zurich airport. Location is great for those who wants to enjoy beautiful lake Lucern suroundings. Also is very close to great ski resorts as Sattel and Andermatt. We family with small kids had lots of fun there. Renate was really helpful and very friendly host. Apartment super clean with all necessary equipment. Would definitely recommend to stay and will be back for summer. Many thanks

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Switzerland, and had an absolutely wonderful time. Isenthal is a beautiful place to stay, and this house was perfect for our family. Everything we needed was in the house, and there was plenty of room for our family of 4.

Isenthal is a little more off the beaten path than I had expected, but I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful and magical !!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two children and I stayed for four nights in this lovely, immaculate apartment. Renate greeted us in person and communication before our arrival and during stay was excellent. We were briefed upon arrival about the area and attractions. The apartment has everything required for a comfortable stay. The location was convenient and beautiful specially the drive into Isenthal was amazing. Great location to tour the wonderful areas around Lake Lucerne. Trip to top of mount Titlis was a life time experience. Very conveniently situated from all the beautiful and mesmerising attractions around lake lucerne.

In short this is a lovely part of Switzerland and staying at this apartment made our stay a truly memorable experience. Would love go and stay again.
