Well the whole experience was overwhelming.
A river by your side with a scenic mountain view from every room.
Interlaken: Schleusenhaus: "A river-side chalet! A dream come true..."
Date: 24th May 2011
We booked this chalet for a 4-day stay because it was a fully functional house, close to Interlaken West station.
We were a family of 8 from India, the group including 4 senior citizens & 2 kids, on our 1st trip to Switzerland. We stayed at Schleusenhaus in the last week of May'11 for 4 days. Believe me when I say that our stay here remains the highlight of our trip!
Its a comfy, fully functional 10-bedded chalet with 3 double rooms & 1 big bedroom with 4 beds! There is a TV & computer family room with complimentary internet. There is a kitchen & dining room with electric hob, chimney, microwave, oven, dishwasher, fridge et all. There are 2 bathrooms/WC, one has washing machine & dryer in it, with running hot & cold water. The big bedroom has a pretty attached balcony overlooking a lovely garden. River Aare runs beside this chalet built in 1803! Wow!!
The house was perfect, very comfortable, located on the first floor of this chalet. The owner's mother lives on the second floor & was of great help. The beds were very comfortable too. There is a supermarket Denner located at the corner too for ease of buying fruits, bread, milk & grocery.
As we all are vegetarians, we had taken ready to eat (heat & eat) packets from India which served as our dinner for 4 nights! We also took powdered milk, sugar, tea packets, coffee, instant popcorn, soup packets, snacks etc. This helped us save considerably on our dining-out costs there & all this was possible only because of this fully functional home!
It felt entirely like our own house :-) We were sad to leave in just 4 days & would have loved to stay for a longer duration. Its very rare that you find such a quality accommodation with all possible works included. Words are not enough to describe our incredible experience there.....
