Window on a Village.
After a nail biting trip up the mountain, we arrived to a very friendly warm welcome from our hostess. The house faces the church and the steep pastures across the valley. We were surrounded by farm life. Cutting the hay and raking, including the use of scythes and pitchforks, the six cows living next door, and their friend....the cat. We loved our time watching the village life unfold from our spacious verandah, always something happening to keep us entertained. There are many beautiful walks in the Alps and Lake Lucerne is quite close. The house has everything to make you comfortable, and Renate was a wonderful and friendly source of information, on anything we asked. We had a wonderful week .
Rest, Enjoy, Relax
This home offered so much in both comfort and scenery. We are so grateful for the visit! I can’t wait to come back again and am hoping to come in the summer. It was centrally located in the very small town of Isenthal which provided both the feeling of getting away while still having access to some modern comforts. We cooked almost every meal in the apartment and enjoyed our time to enjoy the surroundings and relax. It was beautiful and the host was so gracious. Our daughter loved her time breathing in the clean air of Isenthal. I can’t wait to visit this home again!
Thank you very much for the rating. We are glad that you come back and welcome you again.
See you soon in Isenthal
Excellent hosts and pleasant experience
We had great time , Rene was an awesome host and we did not find any issues even though we were visiting for the first time
Would highly recommend this to house for small family
Thank you very much for the 5 stars that makes us very happy. a pleasant time. bye for now
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.

Von ganzem Herzen Danke für Eure so ausführliche Bewertung. Sehr schön dass es Ihnen so gut gefallen hat bei uns. In der Wohnung tun wir unser bestes dass unsere Gäste auch von weit her sich wohl fühlen. Auch Sie beide sind ganz tolle Gäste man hat Sie sofort gern bekommen. Es macht große Freude Gastgeber zu sein, und Gäste wie Sie zu betreuen.
Danke nochmal und auf wiedersehen in Isenthal.
Beautiful location! Perfect for our family of four.
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!
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.
