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

A friend and I just went and spent the weekend here and were the season's first guests. The accommodation is perfect - tranquil, on the edge of the village, looking out onto a superb gushing waterfall. The whole house has been lovingly restored and refurbished; it's a delight to be in. We stayed in the twin-bedded Lavender room, which is... More

Having just moved to the UK from Seattle, US, we were looking for a new place to do some X-country skiing with our 17 year old son. We were looking for reasonably priced accommodations. We were very fortunate to find the Hayloft on the web. It is a beautiful home in a beautiful part of Switzerland. Most importantly, the owners... More

When booking our family ski holiday we don’t think of going anywhere else than to the Hayloft in Kandersteg. Our first vacation here was over five years ago and we have been going back ever since and not just for the skiing season, The Hayloft in Kandersteg has something to offer all year round. This wonderful Swiss hideaway is the... More

Our stay at the Hayloft (and Kandersteg in general) can be described with on world: perfect. Kerry and Peter are truly some of the best hosts we have ever encountered in our trips. Our room was very cosy and well-kept, in a house with great character. They kept us entertained during our (very good and really generous) breakfasts. Each morning... More

My roommate and I had the privilege to stay in the Hayloft over our Christmas break and it was truly one of the best places we have ever visited. Kerry and Peter made us feel at home and their house was absolutely adorable and very well-kept. They talked with us and gave us great advice on where to go in... More

If you do not fall under the spell of the Hayloft, then you cannot possibly be ever contented. From the cosiness oozing from every corner to Kerry's unique sense of humour and Peter's efficiency and patience, everything will be done, seemingly effortlessly (but we know it requires 24/7 hard work and commitment) to make your stay a memorable one.
