Swiss Chalet in charming Grindelwald. Two levels, three bedrooms and two full baths gives everyone their private space. Delightful wrap around deck with amazing views of the Swiss Alps. Wakening and going to sleep to the sounds of cow bells made us feel close to nature. This must be the best location in the B.O. area. Down in town a fun festival just happened to be going on with grill outs and rides. Easy assess to Jungfrau Top of the World, Luderbrunnen and villages beyond.
One of the best ways to beat the high cost of eating out was to have this Chalet with full kitchen and dining while being entertained by the mountains that literally surrounded us. These are some of the reasons we chose this lovely home. I would not recommend a hotel in this area, you would miss out on so much.
Wonderful stay, Beautiful views. Ruth very pleasant and helpful. Hope to stay again someday.
The Chalet was much more than expected!! It was very large with three bedrooms, two large bathrooms and a large deck with indescribable views of the Eiger. It is very convenient to he area trains and cable cars. Our daughters took their first ski lesson. The Chalet was impeccably clean, and had everything you needed. The reception was perfect. Thanks for a great time!!!
Chalet Moosrain has probably given us the most memorable family vacation of our lives. The main balcony has the most breathtaking view one could possibly imagine. As the cook for the week, I was astonished to discover that the Chalet has a kitchen which is supplied with absolutely everything you could possibly want or need, other than the food itself. There are two dining areas, one in the kitchen and one in the ample living room. And the cupboards and breakfront contain every kind of crockery, fondue sets, lovely stemware and just about anything you could possibly need or want for dining at home. The three bedrooms were immaculately clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. The shower water pressure was excellent and, of course, the water from the tap tasted better than any brand of bottled water. Grindelwald is situated in an ideal location for taking day trips to the numerous waterfalls, cable cars, villages with no cars, mountain hikes, lakes... as much nature and attractions in nature that you have time for. Although we had rented a car, everything seems to be accessible by bus or by train. The train station is just down the hill from the chalet. After a week, we simply did not want to leave. Our next vacation will be back at Moosrain in the efficiency apartment without the kids. We had a look at it (the apartment we stayed in occupied the second and third floors of the chalet and the efficiency is on the ground floor but still with the same breathtaking view) and it looks just as well supplied as the upstairs apartment. The owner is so lovely and we just could not believe our luck at having found this remarkable, perfect vacation hide-away. We recommend it very highly.
I am somewhat hesitant in dealing with owners directly as I'd been burned in the past but this holiday was plain sailing from start to finish.
We arrived at Basel airport at about 9:30 and arrived in Grindelwald at about 14:30.
The walk to the chalet from the town was steep and we arrived sweaty and out of breath, not realising that we really should have taken a taxi for us and our belongings. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and invited us to sit on the balcony, having given us all a nice cold drink. Bliss.
I should mention the climb. It was the part of the day we always least looked forward to, especially as we'd been out walking most of the day. On occasions we took the free bus to the top of the road above the chalet and then walked down, but although less effort it took at least double the time to get there compared to walking. A minor irritation I suppose.
The chalet was very well appointed and clean, with almost all the utensils and facilities you could hope for. The free WiFi was especially useful in keeping the children entertained on their smartphones plus researching days out, etc.
Oh, the views. Did I not mention the views? Let's put it this way: no amount of video or photography of any kind can capture the pure majesty of the surrounding mountains. It was stunning. I'm also glad we went in the summer because the landscape was laid out in all its snow-free beauty. I'm sure it's beautiful in the snow but I suspect summer has the best views.
Grindelwald centre has a couple of supermarkets where we were able to get our self-catering food. Be warned though, prices are silly, even for fresh produce. In fact EVERYTHING in that area was expensive. Eating out in the evening for 4 people was always over £110. Drinks are pricey too. A pint of beer and a coke was over £10.
It was never crowded although we were surprised at the amount of Japanese everywhere we went. Everyone was unfailingly friendly, especially where customer service was involved. Waiters were very attentive and efficient too.
For getting around we used the half-fare Swiss pass and it seemed to cover most things, ski lifts included. I'm still not sure whether it was good value, given the base purchase price, but it was psychologically satisfying to get 20-50% off most fares, including a trip to the Top Of Europe – the Junfraujoch. Equally stunning and pricey.
All in all, a spectacular (if expensive) holiday. Thoroughly recommended.
Very quiet and centrally located. Approximately 5-7 minutes above Grindelwald, shopping mall and town center station.
Ideal apartment without a car.
