My husband and I stayed a week with Katrin and Franz and they were great hosts. Katrin treats all of her guests like friends and makes them feel so welcome. Every morning the breakfast consisted of wonderful muesli, and a variety of meats, cheeses, and breads. She always asked what time you would like to eat breakfast the night before. She made us some excellent cheese fondue and even raclette. Our room (the Green Room) was very nice and clean, as well as the bathroom. (Everyone has their own bathroom, but it is across the hall.) Katrin sings, plays the piano, and dances to country music as well! Both Katrin and Franz were very helpful and provided us with brochures and information for tours and activities in area. The Chalet was much more cozy and personal than a standard hotel. We met so many nice people while staying there from all over the world. The Chalet is located in a gorgeous area and is just a short walk from the town. We had to leave early in the morning and Katrin got up to hug us goodbye and even sent some of her yummy nut sticks with us. It was an excellent stay and we can't wait to (hopefully) return some day.
