The Saanewald Lodge is located about a kilometer up the hills from the main road and the Saanenmöser train station right on the ski slopes and next to the Gondola. In summer the Lodge it's easy accessible by car, but in winter the road up the hill is only partially open to traffic because of ski slope and lift crossings,... More

We've stayed at Saanewald Lodge (and it's previous incarnation as Z-Loft) on a number of occassions over the last 5 or 6 years. And we've kept going back because of the ski in-ski out location on the slopes, and because we've always enjoyed our stay. We returned after 2 years this last weekend, and found that yet again the staff... More

Our satnav gave up but eventually we found the lodge up on the mountain. Very laid back and hip with nice retro touches. They did a great job of turning a genuine sixties venue into a hip retro place. The lodge is geared more towards winter than summer guests, it appears. During our 3-night stay just two rooms were occupied,... More

Vrey cosy and funky place, with relics and collector items from the early days of skiing to decorate the place. Added to that, a few modern design items, such as the lamp shades. We have been there several times for lunch, walking from the parking at the village of Saanenmöser. Food is good and so is service. Love the thick... More
