It is oh so lovely with grand views of surrounding Alps
Chalet Drei Tannen is a fabulous retreat, cozy and warm, furnished in Swiss Alpine decor. Dining area is wunderbar with knotty pine walls and ceiling, plus table, chairs and hutch to match. Kitchen has modern utensils, lots of glassware. We had trouble with the stove, but Isabella from Home Away came to get it working for us. The dishwasher and espresso coffee maker were never used. We couldn't figure them out, and instructions were in German! The living area has wood panels and an acoustic tile ceiling. There is lots of good seating, books to read, games to play.
The chalet is in a difficult position—just 400 meters from the bahnhof. But the little road has some steep climbs. Once you arrive at the street address, there is a challenge of 56 (we counted) awkward steps up to the chalet. Not recommended for oldsters. At 82, I had much difficulty making the climb, especially with luggage. Because of the somewhat remote location, our group decided to make only one trip away per day.
We used the local taxi a few times. Frau Wegmüller would take us the 400 meters for CHF 18 (about $20 American). We always used her service when moving luggage from and to the station.
Views from the wrap-around veranda were fantastic. We looked down on Lauterbrunnen and Staubach Falls. We looked up at mountains that surrounded us.
Oriental rugs covered wood floors. Most everything you could desire in a vacation rental was here. The Restaurant Bären, which we passed on our walks to the village, was our choice for dinner twice in our week here. The dining room has a window view of the Alps. The service was attentive and the food delicious. The Bären offers sumptious feasts. Out of 26 restaurants in Wengen, it was rated No. 1 by online TripAdvisor.
