Check In
It was a business trip for 8 people, we all perfectly accommodated. Communication with the hostess was excellent, Ute is very friendly and sympathetic. The arrival was independent and convenient (we arrived late). In the house we found everything we needed. There were interesting pictures on the wall, which at first frightened us a little, but then we fell in love with them :) We were cold and we switched on batteries, used a washing machine, iron, cooked food in the kitchen - everything is very convenient. Outside the window were very beautiful views and a meditative sound of bells of cows. Internet and one bathroom was not enough for 8 people, but we got accustomed. The area was very quiet and safe.

Ute's house was our first experience with Airbnb and it was just PERFECT ! We were 7 adultes and 3 children and stayed 4 nights. As Ute said, it's a big and very charming house, clean, well equiped, confortable.. We really looooved it! You can imagine the pleasure and excitement when you find Ute's warm words on the table, arriving at 1:30am in a raining night. And of course there always will be beautiful sunshine on the house in the morning. We are gratefull Ute for your magnificent house and your prompt advices! Thanks to you, we had a great time and some unforgettable memories ! Can't wait to come next time and strongly recommande Ute's house for a tour in Switzerland ( Zurich, Lucerne, Titlis, Rigi etc.)

My stay at Ute's place is definitely the most amazing experience I have ever had in Europe. Surrounded by greens and little farms with cute animals, you would not want to miss it if you are a group of nature lovers and would like to experience a classic Swiss rural life. The host is extremely helpful and easygoing, I strongly recommend this place to big group traveller.

A wonderful house in the wonderful Alps with access to Zurich. This is really one of those airbnbs of ye'olden days when the platform was still young. You have a sense of getting an experience that is just not accessible on the traditional commercial market. Ute is a host who isn't out to make a fast dime on the airbnb craze, but instead one of the most considerate hosts I've had to date. The house is old but in a beautiful condition. Everything is working as it should be and well taken care of. You can tell that the people who've been living there really liked the place and that makes it special. The garde is wonderful and has something for kids to discover in every corner. The kitchen is perfectly equipped has everything you want and more, regarding supplies and utensils. We even had some bread, fruit and chocolate when we checked in. The bathroom is roomy with a window and the water pressure is high. The area is so safe, you don't need to lock the doors. The mountains are gorgeous and over hikes for all skill levels. There is a small supermarket nearby which caters everything you need. Expect to hear nothing but cowbells during the night. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely weekend in this beautiful old swiss style house. Everything was really well organized. We didn't meet Ute, however, she prepared everything really well with excellent communication, which made our stay a great experience. I would recommend this house easily to anybody.

Ute was very responsive and forthcoming host. Upon our arrival we got a warm welcome from Ute's mom and really enjoyed the surprise breakfast goodies left for us in the kitchen. The house offers lots of room(s), a very well equipped kitchen with a big fridge and lots of books and games for rainy days. We had a great time there, it's the perfect place to just hang out, go for walks and enjoy nature.

From city to country and vice versa. I live and work in Zurich with my two children for the major part of the week and I also spend a considerable part of my time in our house in Vorderthal. All the years I could not do without one or the other.

I'm happy our house is being used and alive as a place to retreat, relax and exercise. It is perfect for families, with or without children and it is also suitable for any kind of work/art project. I am an open-minded and uncomplicated person.
