"This is not a hotel. This is not a mountain hut. This is something better. This is the friendliest place you'll stay in Switzerland."

Trip Advisor review August 2012

 We are very fortunate to receive many fantasic reviews, which have resulted in us winning the Trip Advisor Travellers choice award for 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016.  We are also rated by Airbnb as "Superhosts". It is true, we aren't a hotel, or a mountain hut, we aren't a purpose built B&B or a restaurant with rooms to let ............. this is our home which we offer to share with you.  A tradition that was first recorded in Kandersteg in 1658 as travellers rested in private homes before their trip across the Alps via the Gemmi Pass.

Below are detailed descriptions of the accommodation that we offer you today and photos of each room.  Every room is unique and has its own special features.

The Hayloft - Group room - sleeps up to six

The Hayloft group/family room is a thoughtful conversion of the original two-storey part of the house that was literally used to store the hay feed for the over-wintering of animals.  It has been lovingly restored using original timber and converted, it is now comfortable open plan accommodation for six persons, split on two levels.   An external access door ensures privacy from the main house. 

 

It has a superb view of the Allmenalp waterfall. 

 

 

 

 

A shower room with washbasin, toilet, hairdryer and electric socket,  has been integrated into the accommodation.  There is also a table and chairs.

The Augsburger Stubli

 

The single room is very quaint but has limited headroom. 

It is ideal for the single traveller not wishing to pay a 'single occupancy supplement".  It has a chest of drawers, small table and chair, hairdryer and hanging space.  There are fantastic views across open pastures to the mountains beyond. The bathroom, with both shower and a freestanding bath is shared on the floor below.

 

 

 

               The Hot Tub - for up to six people

The winter of 2011/2012 saw the very popular addition of our outdoor wood fired hot tub. Can there be anything more relaxing after a hard day skiing or hiking than to return to warm, bubbly water?  Spend a while relaxing and taking in the view, or maybe a romantic candle lit dip to watch the stars!

 

Please arrange to use the hot tub in advance.  As it is wood fired we heat it on request.  Supplementary charges apply
