Without a doubt the best place we stayed on our trip. Our family of four stayed with Peter and Kerry for two nights and wish we would have stayed longer. We stayed in the Hayloft (family style room) and it worked great for a family....More

I'm not sure where to start I have too many good things to say about this place. We arrived by car (on the train, which was fantastic but that's another review) and it was very easy to find with our sat nav. Equally it would...More

My second visit to The Hayloft, and I doubt it'll be my last. A tradition Swiss chalet in a stunning mountain location with heaps of charm & character, yet has all the modern comforts. Above all, it's made home-from-home by engaging hosts Kerry & Peter,...More

About
Description
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 More 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. Less

I agree with Jackie about the distance to the Oeschinensee gondola. If you want to up into the mountains for hiking there is a cable car about two minutes from the Hayloft. If you have a vehicle there is also a car train... More
