Overview

About the property

Uninterrupted views, stylish and modern, large sunny dining terrace & BBQ

'.....they looked down on the Staubach Falls and the Lauterbrunnen Valley in all its glory' - John le Carré, (Our Kind of Traitor)

A stylish apartment with stunning views of the spectacular Lauterbrunnen Valley that are genuinely unsurpassed. Located next to open pasture, on the outside edge of a small modern chalet development, wide french doors open out onto a large sunny terrace, great for outside dining and barbecuing, but even better for just sitting and gazing at one of the world’s most dramatic valleys. The Staubach Falls are over to one side and alpine meadows straight ahead, the views of which are unobstructed by any other buildings. In winter a cross country ski trail skirts through the grounds. Unsurprisingly, the area beyond is a UNESCO world heritage site. (As for the inside of the property, see 'More Details' below).

Inside is a large lounge and dining area, with comfortable oak and leather furniture and cosy underfloor heating. A luxury well equipped kitchen includes granite surfaces, dishwasher and microwave. Bathroom and bedrooms are to an equally high standard. A large double bedroom, with solid oak furniture, has ample room for a cot, if needed. The second bedroom, with full size bunk beds and a single bed provides flexibility for families or groups of friends. The level access throughout the property is often appreciated by both older people and those with young children.

Other features include free and unlimited WiFi internet, international cable TV, DVD, iPod dock, washing machine and drier, ski room and private garage. The price also includes all Tourist taxes, end of stay cleaning, all linen, heating and taxed rubbish/garbage collection, (ie there are no extra costs).

The property is situated well away from the traffic on the main road, but still only two minutes from the Post Bus which runs regularly along the valley (free Ski Bus in winter).

A well stocked local store is only a short distance across the river, but a full range of shops can be found in the village, ten minutes walk away.

As well as the trains to Interlaken, cable cars link to the international ski areas of Murren and Wengen, including the famous Eiger Northface cog railway to the Jungfraujoch. Further afield the excellent train and Post Bus service makes a car unnecessary.

Tennis courts are 200m back towards the village, used for ice skating in winter. (More information on skiing and summer activities can be found below). The Trummelbach Falls are an easy 20 minute walk, one of 72 waterfalls which tumble into the Lauterbrunnen Valley. In summary, the location is truly glorious.

(Our reviews will tell you a lot more, all of which have been written voluntarily by guests. However, if there is anything else that you need to know, please contact me. During your stay our local manager, who has lived nearby in the valley for over 25 years, is also available to deal with any problems.)

Finally, in order to provide you with financial security, we encourage all payments to be made through the secure HomeAway Payment system, rather than directly to ourselves - see 'Pay with Confidence' or 'Travel with Confidence', in the column to the right.

About Sue Creamer

I am very fortunate to have been able to retire early, along with my husband. Having been a college vice-principle, I was always able to find time to do a bit more traveling than most - now we do a lot, including visits to Lauterbrunnen for both winter skiing and summer walking. Having three grown up children (and a grandson), who equally enjoy being there with us, is an added bonus.

Sue Creamer purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Sue Creamer chose Lauterbrunnen

When we saw the chalet being built we didn't see the building, we just saw the view! The other chalets are equally great, but this is special. It's a family retreat which we hope will be appreciated by our children and grandchildren for many years to come.

What makes this apartment unique

Stepping out onto the terrace into the heart of the valley with nothing to spoil the view.

We love staying here!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this chalet and it was just as good as the first time. It is perfect for us. Sue and her property manager Kath are very helpful and accommodating and the apartment itself is lovely. As I said last time the view out the window is like living in a postcard and it changes every day - sometimes every hour! We will definitely be coming again.

Absolutely wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 nights and enjoyed every moment. The apartment has the best views of the mountains and waterfall from monrnig to night. Clean. Modern. Plenty of space. Bed was very comfortable. Big bathtub - great after a 3 hour hike that turnrd into 6.5 hours. Kitchen was well equipped with everything one could need. Washer and dryer was very useful after many days of hiking. It was great having several English channels (including some movie channels at night) on the television.

Nearby at Camping Jungfrau was a great little restaurant with reasonable pricing for Switzerland. And a great little convenience store for drinks, snacks, and chocolate.

My favorite part was waking up each morning hearing the nearby cow and sheep bells and looking out the window up to the mountains from the Lauterbrunnen valley.

Ideal base for Alpine exploration

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment can't be topped: sufficiently removed from the crowds in the center of Lauterbrunnen, yet adjacent to the PostBus stop and the convenient Camping Jungfrau store. The views from the property are as good as advertised, the amenities in the kitchen are more than suitable for the needs of families, and Lauterbrunnen is a great hub for exploring the Berner Oberland. Highly recommended.

Better Every Time

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect apartment for two couples or a small family. A spacious living area and fully equipped kitchen make it easy to cook and relax after days walking in the valley or up high on the many stunning trails of Mürren, Wengen, or Grindelwald. There are countless villages and activities within an hour by train, bus, boat, or car.

The apartment is modern but warm, spotless, and convenient to town. The view is fantastic.

It’s why we return and why we bring friends.

Fairytale come to life

  • 5 of 5

The Creamer apartment was everything it was advertised to be. For other VRBO experiences I've elaborated more, but in this case there is nothing to add. Sue was great to work with and the setting was amazing. We are thankful Sue chooses to open the apartment to renters.

Prime waterfall viewing location

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second time staying at Sue's lovely apartment. Being able to stare at Staubach Falls while being in the kitchen, dining room, bedrooms or on the patio is a view you never tire of. This apartment is a short walk into town and next to the trails. The perfect spot! Thanks again Sue, we will be back!

The village provides a range of shops and restaurants, a ten minute stroll away along the river. A well stocked local store offers most things 7 days a week, including fresh bread. Other local facilities include nearby tennis courts and cycle hire. Outdoor swimming pool, paragliding, rock climbing, white water rafting and mountain biking are all local, with excellent golf at Interlaken. Visits to historic towns and lakes like Bern, Thun and Lucerne are all convenient, as are many famous mountain passes. But the main reason for coming to the Lauterbrunnen Valley is the scenery, 72 waterfalls, spectacular mountain railways, diverse wildlife, birdwatching, glacial valleys, the Eiger, the Jungfrau and UNESCO World Natural Heritage designation. The area is however very accessible by Eurorail, motorway and train to 3 international airports; Geneva, Basel and Zurich. (For more on the immediate area google Eurocamp Lauterbrunnen Camping-Jungfrau

Ski and Winter Activities : The skiing is rivalled only by the scenery, probably the most spectacular in Europe. Lauterbrunnen is also the only place in the Jungfrau ski region with equally easy access to both Wengen and Murren, both car free villages sitting on the cliff tops on opposite sides of the valley. Murren, the birthplace of downhill skiing, has an international reputation as an elegant, true alpine village. It can be reached by either of two efficient cable cars rising up from the Lauterbrunnen Valley floor. Wengen is even more famous, being the home of the Lauberhorn, the longest downhill World Cup race, run annually in January. The whole area has great skiing for all levels, with 230km of pistes, rising to nearly 3000m, and 50km of sledging. It also offers the added excitement of skiing below the North face of the Eiger and from the revolving restaurant at the top of the Schilthorn, made famous as the location for the James Bond film 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service'.

Winter Holidays for non-skiers: Whilst famous for it's skiing, the Lauterbrunnen Valley is equally ideal for other winter activities, including just absorbing the fantastic scenery. Access to mountain restaurants couldn't be easier due to the network of mountain cog-railways and cable cars. For the more energetic extensive trails are maintained for snow-shoe trekking and there are over 50 kms of toboggan runs. There is also a local heli-skiing pad, paragliding, ice skating, ice climbing and ice go-karting. In addition Lauterbrunnen is the starting point for one of the world's most dramatic train rides by rack and pinion railway, through the snow fields of Kleine Scheidegg and the Eiger northface to emerge at Europe's highest railway station at Jungfraujoch, providing direct access onto Europes longest glacier, the Aletschglacier. For more down to earth activities local trains run into the heart of great shopping at Grindelwald and Interlaken and a little further afield to Thun and Bern, Switzerland's capital city.

Spring and Summer Activities: Many of Lauterbrunnen's winter attractions are equally attractive in Spring and Summer, not least the mountain restaurants and the ride up past the Eiger to Jungfraujoch and the Aletschglacier (see Winter Holidays above). However the melting snow also reveals swathes of magnificent alpine flowers and a vast range of hiking trails. Wild ibex, marmots and chamois can be found in the more remote uplands, whilst golden eagles, wall creeper, nutcracker and red kites are amongst the rarer birds frequently seen. Cycle routes vary from gentle routes along the valley bottom to tough tracks over mountain passes. For more sedate pastimes traditional Swiss culture is regularly on show, from yodelling to folk dancing, alpine horns and Swiss bands. Local hero William Tell is also celebrated throughout the summer at the open air theatre in Interlaken, where there is also an excellent golf course. In addition a number of beaches and lidos can be found dotted around the huge adjoining lakes, as well an open-air pool back in the village.

Wheelchair Access: The apartment is suitable for people who may be less physically able or for those with young children, with level access throughout and a large flat terrace. Wheelchair users will find that doors are wide and the hallways , bathroom and corridors are roomy. Although there is a small step at the entrance to the building(5cms), the approach is level and there are suitable footpaths throughout the valley, including back to the village. The cable cars, trains and buses are generally equally user friendly.
