We are so glad that we chose Esther's Guesthouse as our home base for our trip to the Swiss Alps! The small town of Gimmewald was just what we needed - a place to slow down, recover from our week of travel and drink in the amazing views. Unbelievable! We would have been happy just sitting on Esther's front porch...

We stayed in one of the apartments at Esther's Guesthouse for 3 days as part of our honeymoon trip, and had the most amazing time! It was definitely one of our favorite place we stayed on our trip. Esther and team were so welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast was excellent. Gimmelwald is a beautiful destination to visit, and Esther's...

We hiked down (actually down then up) to Esther's at Gimmelwald from Obersteinberg. We'd spent the previous night at the beautiful but slightly spartan Berggasthaus Obersteinberg. The hike down was pretty brutal on our knees and feet, so we were ready for some greater level of comfort. Esther's fit the bill very nicely. Everything was done in beautifully rustic yet...

I have been home for a week and dreaming about the views from my room at Esther's Guesthouse. This B&B is located in the quiet town of Gimmelwald and surrounded by the magical Alps and fabulous hikes. I was happy with my choice to stay here instead of some of the busier tourist destinations like Murren and enjoyed the calm...

We had a wonderful time and were so thankful our first full day was sunny. We knew the forecast for most of our time was rain so we headed out our first day and did Esther's "favorite" hike. We took the cable car from Murren to Bier and hiked up to Shilthorn and back to Bier where we took the...

Esther's Guesthouse is quiet, very comfortable and has all that you need for a lovely stay in the Gimmelwald area. The rooms are spotless and comfortable. The village is beautiful, picturesque and quiet; it is only a short gondola ride or walk from Murren that has all of the amenities that you could need. We were given lots of information...

Gimmelwald is" heaven on earth" for those that want quiet, rustic, scenic and quaint. We liked it better than Murren. Esther's Guest Home was just what we needed to compliment our vacation. We stayed in Apt B. It was great! Plenty of space, comfy beds, well stocked kitchen and oh, the balcony overlooking the mountains! Esther is a dear and...

I have stayed with Esther three times now. Each time she greets me as an old friend. Many people come year after year. We stay right in her house. Two rooms share one bathroom. The rooms are recently renovated, cozy, and comfy. There is a large kitchen area where one can keep food in the frig and even cook meals...

We stayed for 3 nights at Esther's Guesthouse in the top room with the private bath. We were just a couple, so it was more than enough space for us. The room was clean and cool, with a beautiful, postcard-esque view. The Guesthouse is only a couple minutes walk from the cable car, and steps away from the few restaurants...
