Superb B&B, absolutely pristine in beautiful rural location. My wife and I enjoyed one night at this wonderful B&B in July 2015. Unfortunately, one night is not long enough to really enjoy all that this beautiful establishment and its surrounds have to offer. The guest rooms are modern, beautifully finished and include all you need, even a Nespresso machine. The... More

Mathias, the son who manages the guest house is a naturally charming host, nothing too much trouble and knowledgeable about the area. Even an 11:30 pm arrival was accommodated as if entirely normal. Its modern traditional decor is of this rural area. Not particularly our style but we appreciated its authenticity. The breakfast was as complete as one could want,... More

It is a small but very well kept hotel, part is old and rennovated, part is new and modern, but fits very well in this Appenzell area. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, nothing but top quality products! And this somehow fits perfect with the rest of this small but excellent hotel.

I have stayed in many 5 star hotels but this one is 10 star if I can say. The owners is extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms style is simple and cosy. It contains the most comfortable beds. Breakfast is tasty and frash especially the egg, the milk and the fruits.

Great experience Amazing hospitality and outstanding hosts. The breakfast was one of the best we had throughout our stay and no detail was overlooked. I would definitely recommend this B&B for travel in Appenzellerland. Truly great experience.

We arrived on a rainy day but were instantly warmed from the greeting and long conversation with our hostess, Vreni. The room was luxurious with a great view to their horse stable and meadows out back. Very comfortable loung area with complimentary soft drinks and the honor system for others. The bed and bath were superb and the breakfast outstanding.... More

We spent four beautiful days at the Gaestehaus Baeren in Gais. It is beautiful, clean and the service is exceptional. Breakfast, water and soft drinks were all included in the price. We also had a Neapresso coffee machine in the room. The owners went above and beyond to insure that we had a wonderful stay. We would highly recommend this... More

I'm staying here for the second time with as much pleasure as the first one. Everything is just perfect. Clean is obvious... as you are in Switzerland! Confort is perfect with very comfortable beds (not to mention the wonderful cushions and bed covers), clean and spacious bathroom with wonderful shower and a gorgeous delicious breakfast.

We stayed only for a night in the suite but we would have loved to stay longer. After a long hiking in the area, we were looking forward to arrive at the hotel. It was just very clean, warming, homely and perfectly furnished room with a typical & delicious sweet on the pillow to welcome us. The perfect mix of... More
