My husband and I were only able to stay one night at The Hayloft but we both agree that it was our best night in Switzerland. Kandersteg is breathtakingly beautiful and offers ample outdoors adventures for all levels of adventurer. Kerry & Peter were wonderful hosts and gave us excellent recommendations for activities that would get us out to the... More

We had a lovely stay with Kerry & Peter who are absolutely delightful hosts. The scenery is spectacular, the accommodations are charming and the food is amazing. Highlight of the trip was the dinner (prearranged) on our last night. They also provided a lot of information about local hikes.

We had an absolutely delightful time with Kerry and Peter and would highly recommend that if you are traveling to Kandersteg, that you book your stay with them! And please, have them cook for you! We hope to be back someday!

This may have been our favorite spot of our 2 week Europe trip. We were pretty nervous about it, having never really been bed-and-breakfast kinds of people--the idea of hanging out with strangers in someone else’s kitchen never really appealed to us (who was it that said that “hell is other people for breakfast”?), so we had our misgivings at...

We had a delightful room with views of meadow and mountain. Very comfortable. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Peter gave good advice about where to walk. We had a lovely raclette meal one night with the other guests, which was great fun. Breakfasts were very good. Peter and Kerry were very helpful in suggesting where to eat. I... More

We stayed at the Hayloft for 5 nights in May, we had a fantastic time! Kerry and Peter are wonderful hosts, very welcoming and friendly, great company, and had great recommendations when required! House is lovely, setting is beautiful and serene, just a short walk from town. Kandersteg had lots of options for hiking and eating. We'd definately recommend The... More

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
