A trio of us girls stopped in at the Hayloft this past June arriving by train. I have been in Switzerland before but never at this time of year when a chorus of thousands of alpine meadow flowers dotted the fields. The Hayloft, is an easy 10-15 minute peaceful walk from the train station. We stayed in the bright and... More

I spent 5 nights with Kerry & Peter and had a wonderful time. Their home is just beautiful, so much better than staying in a boring hotel. They make you feel at home & are brilliant hosts. It's nice to sit around the breakfast table listening to their stories of life etc with the other guests. They made my first... More

My daughter and I spent 3 nights with Kerry and Peter. The experience was great! The couple is very friendly, and makes one feel right at home. Peter was kind enough to bring us from and to the train station, which was great help (there are really no taxis that could take you to the Loft). I highly recommend visiting... More

A beutiful Place to be, welcoming hosts, we had some funny talks at the breakfast table with the hosts and the other guests, nice hiking around Kandersteg. We had the Lavendar room, so nice and charming. We will return for sure!

Kandersteg is a charming mountain town nestled in a beautiful valley. Peter and Kerry's Hayloft home is located just outside of town with stunning views. But the best is that Kerry and Peter welcomed us into their home as if we were returning dear friends. Lively conversation, banter and much laughter ensued during our 3 night stay. As reported by...

It has been almost one year since we stayed at The Hayloft and everyday since then I dream of when we can return! We were only guests for 2 nights, but Kerry, Peter, James, Snorkel & Anchor treated us as if we were family. Peter kindly picked us up at the train station and provided many great hiking suggestions for... More

The Hayloft -- what an incredible experience. Kerry and Peter were a joy to book with from the start, even through many iterations of plan changes on our end (adding a person, changing our arrival plans, adding dinner, adding hot tub (side bar: DO THE HOT TUB!) etc.) with no problems and always in an accommodating manner. Our group of... More

We recently stayed at the Hayloft and had an amazing experience in this truly authentic and charming B&B. Situated a short distance out of the town center, it was a charming walk over to the property with amazing Swiss views. The house itself takes you back in time to what it probably used to look like years ago, however has... More

From the moment when arrived until we departed, we experienced extraordinary service and rich, wonderful fun at the Hayloft. Peter and Kerry are ideal hosts, welcoming you into their home and village with a delightful enthusiasm for all the area has to offer. My husband was so giddy with the beauty of the setting that he did a 360 degree... More
