What an absolutely lovely way to start our vacation in Switzerland! Kerry, Peter, James, and Snorkels (the awesome cat), were so gracious and welcomed us into their home and made us feel like we were apart of their family. In the evenings and mornings, we enjoyed traditional, DELICIOUS Swiss foods and shared fantastic stories together around the beautiful large wooden... More

The Hayloft was a comfortable, immaculately clean and very cheerful place to stay. Kerry and Peter are delightful hosts. Friendly, courteous, helpful and in addition, well travelled, excellent conversationalists and very, very funny. We recommend you stay at the Hayloft if you like to laugh. Breakfast was ample with very good variety and nicely served. We also really appreciated the... More

Surrounded by a beautiful landscape, we spent a great weekend with our amazing hosts Peter and Kerry. We have visited the Hayloft first in 2011, and ever since we are returning guests, because of the good food, the great hospitality, the romantic atmosphere of the rooms and the house. Dinners and breakfast promise not only fine food, but also great... More

This is no ordinary B&B, this the Rauber family home, filled with big smiles, loving hugs and great banter, no wonder they are NUMBER ONE! After our millionth holiday to The Hayloft, it still feels like the first time all those years ago. Breakfast and dinner are a moreish affair, I have never left the table hungry....or sober (well I... More

We stayed at the Hayloft for three nights in January. We definitely had an excellent stay; Kerry and Peter were absolutely perfect hosts in all respect: picked us up at the train station and gave all sort of useful advice. And not least both Anchor and Snorkel are lovely!

This is the type of place you hope will remain a well kept secret, because it's, "Simply Superb!" There is little to add to what has been said by other reviewers, magical setting, delightful accommodaion and wonderful hosts. The breakfasts are great and do yourself a favour and check in for the evening meals. All in all, not to be... More

Four of us stayed at The Hayloft for several nights in early October and all of us agree that it was an exceptional B&B experience. Our hosts, Kerry and Peter made all guests feel at home and went out of their way to give us great information about the area and accommodated our every need. In fact, Peter devised an... More

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
