We arrived on a rainy day but were instantly warmed from the greeting and long conversation with our hostess, Vreni. The room was luxurious with a great view to their horse stable and meadows out back. Very comfortable loung area with complimentary soft drinks and the honor system for others. The bed and bath were superb and the breakfast outstanding.... More

We spent four beautiful days at the Gaestehaus Baeren in Gais. It is beautiful, clean and the service is exceptional. Breakfast, water and soft drinks were all included in the price. We also had a Neapresso coffee machine in the room. The owners went above and beyond to insure that we had a wonderful stay. We would highly recommend this... More

I'm staying here for the second time with as much pleasure as the first one. Everything is just perfect. Clean is obvious... as you are in Switzerland! Confort is perfect with very comfortable beds (not to mention the wonderful cushions and bed covers), clean and spacious bathroom with wonderful shower and a gorgeous delicious breakfast. This is not the place... More

We stayed only for a night in the suite but we would have loved to stay longer. After a long hiking in the area, we were looking forward to arrive at the hotel. It was just very clean, warming, homely and perfectly furnished room with a typical & delicious sweet on the pillow to welcome us. The perfect mix of... More

Initially I thought maybe I shouldn't stay here because I didn't have a car, but they were completely willing to pick me up at the train station which as it turns out is a 5-minute walk.. over a covered bridge. There are horses in the backyard, cows on the hillside, and endless trails to walk on right from the hotel.... More

We stayed only one night here, but felt at home. The hosts were very attentive to our needs and the pension is decorated with very good taste, a mixture of tradition appenzeller style and modern. While it is aouside the town it is very quiet at night and one can sleep very restfully here.

We had a wonderful (one-night) stay at this recently renovated guest house. We were traveling with our young son & had some additional requests prior to arrival. Stephan was exceptionally helpful, generous & prompt in responding to our inquiries. The house and rooms are impeccable, cozy and lots of decor is traditional Swiss, most probably many pieces are family heirlooms.... More

At first, the location is not so attractive. But wait to come inside this old typical Appenzeller house and discover the hospitality of the Willi family ! The rooms are cosy, tastefully furnished with local craftsmanship and perfectly equipped. And above all, the Willi will do just everything to make your stay totally enjoyable : ready to give you very... More

We arrived during an unusually early snowfall, which we aren't used to, and were so warmly greeted and welcomed that we were immediately at ease and relaxed after a long drive from Germany. The owners were more than accommodating, in less than 1/2 hour we were settled in our beautiful, clean and cozy rooms with reservations for dinner and transportation... More

The Baeren Gaestehaus is beautifully situated just a few kilometers outside of "downtown" Appenzell. The Inn is impeccably clean, the owners warm, friendly, welcoming and helpful and the breakfasts offer everything one might want. Our elderly dog accompanied us and she too was catered for with a cozy bed and special treats. I can highly recommend the Baeren Gaestehaus for... More
