If there is ever a place in the world that truly TAKES YOUR BREATH away it is out the front door of this home. I cannot believe what the location had in store. The home is only the tip of the iceberg. It was well equipped with everything we needed including a baby crib, mattress protectors and crib sheets. There is no dryer so things must be line dried outside (or inside by the fire when cold) but it added to the atmosphere of slowing down and appreciating life. Rolf met us and showed us thru the house and how to operate anything. He provided detailed lists of emergency contacts, his own POC, travel guides and info on the area. We stayed for the first few days in June and I cannot imagine how any other time could be better. It was breezy, warm and flowers were in bloom all over the hills. The sound of the river a few hundred feet from the cabin was serene and majestic. We have lived in Hawaii but for us this was paradise and the most beautiful place we've been. If the home description meets your family needs prepare to have your senses overloaded with awe when you actually are there. One tip I'd add for anyone is to be aware stores close early and most are not open Sundays. The nearest grocery store for basic provisions and a bit pricey is in Wassen about 10 min away. We had a family of 6 and needed a bit more and the next grocery store in size is in Altdorf about 30 min away. No matter how tired you may be GET GROCERIES first so you don't have to go back out. You won't want to anyway it's so pretty. Also, if you like to hike head deeper into Sustenpass to find a small parking lot on your right with a massive rock with "SEWEN" painted on it. You can hike about 80 min up to find a mountain top hut with drinks for all ages, snacks and a break from your hike. We didn't have time to do it but discovered it too late. We wanted to explore another region and decided not to bc what's out the front door was beyond enough. About 1.5 miles down the valley (toward Wassen) was a little playground of you have kids and the dirt rd thru fields of flowers and cows and sheep with bells on was perfect for all ages. We had a 7mos old, 2 yr old, 4 and 7 yr old and all did great. If you are debating whether or not to hit 'book'.... you WON'T be disappointed. If you want to be closer to cities and tourism look elsewhere. This takes you off the grid enough to feel the pace of life slow but still with full wifi access and oddly had great service everywhere (Tmobile)
