We stayed as a family (3 boys) in early Aug 16. We had a fantastic 3 day stay at the Hayloft in the family room.

We spent two memorable nights at the Hayloft with our delightful hosts, enjoying great food and the charm of a historic and beautifully decorated home. The location in Kandersteg is amazing too, with mountain views and a waterfall almost in the backyard.

We were so thrilled when we drove up to this place. The surrounding scenery is incredible. Almost like something out of a fairytale. The room we stayed in was very warm and cozy. Our 16 year old daughter had her own loft. Peter and Kerry were ideal hosts, and we wound up being very glad we reserved dinner there, as...

You can see how much Peter and Kerry love their home from the minute you arrive at this thoughtfully renovated farmhouse on the outskirts of Kandersteg. The room was clean and comfortable with fabulous views out to the mountains and a very quirky bathroom in the old cellar below the bedroom with a trap door access! Peter and Kerry were...

This was one of the very best travel experiences I've ever had. The hosts of The Hayloft went above and beyond to make my solo stay comfortable and fun, even lending me their snow boots and gloves, helping me get to and from the train station, recommending great hiking trails and restaurants, and making the chateau feel like a home...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hayloft is 1200m above sea level, south-facing and stands in about two acres of its own meadowland. The property is bordered by a trout stream and is very quiet; it has its own private access track and there is NO passing traffic. We have a superb outdoor hot tub for you to use. The house boasts stunning mountain views (over 3,600m) in every direction, clear views of glaciers and a magnificent waterfall. The Hayloft is about 1 mile from the centre of the village of Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland. Kandersteg is a rural working village but has a parallel tourist-based economy. The village has all the expected range of facilities without losing its unique Swiss atmosphere. ... more   less
