Run by a really fun and welcoming couple, we loved our stay at the Hayloft. We enjoyed a great dinner both nights and the very warmest hospitality. Kinda like joining the family. My only criticism was the charge on using the hot tub, but I'd happily go back. Nice Swiss experience.

Thank you very much for your review of your stay in mid-February last year (not April). We are pleased that you were happy here. It is worth remembering that a six person wood fired hot tub takes a lot of wood and time to heat, hence our charge for usage. It is offered as an optional enhancement to your stay....

After our 3 day-trip we stayed in 3 separate rooms. The entire b&b is renovated and decorated real cosy and with great respect for the original features of...

The house is impeccably cared for by Kerry and Peter as well as the guests that descend on them. Nothing was too much to ask and we were made to feel at home from...

I loved everything about it. The house, the room, the view, the bathroom, breakfast.. Everything was perfect. As been said a dozen times before: Kerry and Peter are incredible hosts. They have many great stories and a good sense of humor. I laughed a lot and felt at home. Thanks for the amazing experience!

Cannot explain how happy I was with my stay. Kerry and Peter are the most incredible hosts. I highly recommend booking the hot tub for at least one night. Kerry and Peter made me feel so comfortable on my solo trip to Kandersteg. They offered great advice on hiking trails and restaurants that I would enjoy. I truly felt at...

We had a wonderful stay. Kerry and Peter welcomed us as friends. The hayloft is a beautiful renovated house within walking distance to the center of Kandersteg. The rooms are spotless and the breakfast and dinner were absolutely wonderful. Thank you Kerry and Peter! We will come back for the kletersteig and for all the laughs and jokes we had!

Kerry and Peter are fantastic hosts. Staying with them was among the top experiences of Switzerland. Food was excellent. Wood heated Hot tub was enchanting in the evening. So nice not to be surrounded by too many tourists. We want to go back to the hayloft again. Absolutely fantastic.

We spent two memorable nights at the Hayloft with our delightful hosts, enjoying great food and the charm of a historic and beautifully decorated home. The location in Kandersteg is amazing too, with mountain views and a waterfall almost in the backyard.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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. ... more   less
