Cute and peaceful
We loved staying here on our honeymoon. The view from the porch is beautiful. The house is cute and efficient, having all the necessary items we needed available.
Thank you for staying with us and we are happy to hear you enjoyed yourselves.
Quaint Boathouse Stay in Interlaken
My wife and I stayed at the Boat House for 3 nights and really loved it. Juliet provided great instructions for arriving there by car and we had no issues finding it, even as first time Switzerland drivers. Everything was well kempt, clean, and the bicycles were a huge help in getting into town with ease! We actually found a free walking tour with a great guide in one of the brochures in the Boat House and it was that tour that set up the rest of our excursions while in Interlaken. For 2 small to medium sized individuals, the Boat House is perfect getaway with a fantastic view of the Aare River and the surrounding Swiss Alps. Had a wonderful time...thanks!
Compact rental with beautiful views
Basically one room with a separate shower room which is probably the smallest you'll ever encounter (the shower tray is not much bigger than a sink and by time the shower curtain has clung to you, you'd struggle to swing a mouse let alone a cat).
The kitchen area includes pretty much everything you could need, a couple of large wardrobes give plenty of space to store things, and a full length balcony is just wide enough to sit out on with a couple of chairs and table. Beneath the apartment is a storage area with a washing machine which is also used by a resident in the apartments next door (the cleaner?). The lower terrace is also used by that same family.
The rental was very clean and bright (lots of windows) with blinds to provide privacy (although will not block out the early morning light from outside if you need black out curtains to allow for undisturbed sleep). A bedside light would have been useful as you had to turn the lights out by the door then make your way to the bed in the dark.
The thing that sells this apartment is the view which gives you 180 degree views of the river and mountains (although not the Jungfrau etc.). It was lovely to watch the boats, canoes, paddle boarders and even swimmers (it was exceptionally hot when we were there).
What let down our stay was the condition of the bicycles. We knew and were happy the apartment is 20 minutes from Ost station but it is probably a further 15 to 20 minutes into the centre of town/West Station/Unterseen where all the better restaurants are. As a result, we were relying to use the bikes in the evening to go out for dinner and to return to the rental. However, the bikes are not safe to use; the gears don't work, the seat on the larger bike is broken, there are no front/rear lights provided for night use and they are very rickety. Therefore, we could not use them which entailed a long walk in and back each night. Luckily we had great weather and an extra 2 miles each way walk wasn't too much of a problem. However, if the weather had been wet, it would have been very different.
Although we enjoyed our stay, mainly because the weather was on our side, I wouldn't book here again.
The boat house
Great apartment. Fabulous location.
The Boat House was the PERFECT stay!!
My husband and I would highly recommend the boat house to anyone interested in staying in Interlaken. It is hands down the best place we could have imagined to stay. As soon as we arrived we were in awe over the breathtaking views. Although it is not directly in town, we took the bikes along the river and were there within 5 minutes and loved every second of the scenic ride. We had the best of both worlds, a beautiful ride to town, and our own personal secluded house with the best views in Interlaken. It was the first stop of our honeymoon and the best stop! It is absolutely perfect for a couple looking to have a romantic holiday. The accommodations were terrific, Juliet made sure we were in good hands. I have nothing but positive things to say about the boat house. If you are contemplating the boat house over a hotel in town, choose the boat house!!! We would not have wanted our stay in Interlaken any other way!! Thank you to Juliet for making Interlaken so memorable for us!!
This was our sixth stop on our trip and by far the best. Clean, comfortable, well equipped and the view from the balcony was unreal! Juliet was really helpful and sent us lots of information on things to do in Interlaken and the surrounding area. Hope to return one day.
