I am my wife arrived at the Chalet Zum Steg with our 3 daughters ages 4,9,13. We took the apartment on the upper floor. Katrin our host welcomes us to her lovely place with homemade sweek pie she has made especially for us. She then showed us to the apartment, which was basically all what we dreamed of - very cosy and fully furnished apartment, very large, a double bedroom for the parents and another two beds in a separate room (beautiful wooden room) and another bed in the hall. All beds were very comfortable. the house overlooks the lovely Alps Meirinigen-Hasliberg. It is a breathtaking view that can be seen right from the balcony.
the room also has a large fully equiped kitchen (with microwave, oven, gas, pots and dishes, plates etc.and also some herbs in the closet you can use for hte cooking) and a nice dininig area with a table and some chairs.
Breakfast is also something we cannot forget - starting from the high quailty local cheeses, and various kinds of local bread and ending in the most tasteful musli, made fresh and daily by Kathrin. This musly is the highlight of the breakfast, and no one should miss it. We had it each and every morning and just could not have enough from it :)
Katrin also took care to entertain us during the breakfast, dancing and singing to us and playing the piano.
Katrin is a woman one in a kind. although not young in age, she has endless resevoirs of energy and patience to always help, advise and serve her guests.
The chalet is ideally located in Meiringenm in a peaceful quiet area just 2 K from Aareschlucht, 10 KM from beautiful Brienz and its lake, and 30 minutes from Grimsel Pass and 40 minutes to Lucern and the Titlis.
3 minutes drive from the chalet you can also find Migros supermarket for cheap (well relatively cheap, as there is nothing really cheap in Swiss :) ) groceries. The town also has some restaurants and its main street is quite charming.
Meiringen is basically the best location in Swiss close to everything and driving there is really easy from almost evrywhere in Swiss and neighbouring countries.
I would definitely recommend this place starting from the remarkable hospitality of Katrin, going through the wonderful chalet and accomodation and the great location. This is actually the best value for money!
Katrin, keep the good work! You were amazing, and we will never forget the stay at your place! We all miss it already!
In case you are family with up to 3 children, ask for the apartment. It is the biggest accomodation...
