My wife and I stayed four nights at this lovely apartment. The review will be in three parts.

1. HOST: Renate was a wonderful host, she was friendly, very informative and available. She was very knowledgeable about Isenthal and surrounding area. She gave us great tips on tourist activities, local restaurants, and local transportation.

2. THE APARTMENT: Located right in the center of the village, This is a ground floor apartment with a very large living, sleeping, kitchen area with all amenities including free WI-FI. The bathroom was clean and modern. There is also a second bedroom with a bunk bed. Outside there is a nice patio to relax and enjoy the surrounding panorama. There's a free parking lot located less than a minute from the apartment. Also, there is a bus stop located less than a minute away.

3. OVERALL: We fell in love with Isenthal (population around 500), it is such a beautiful village located in the Swiss mountains. The village atmosphere is so relaxed and peaceful, a true getaway from all the fast paced noises of city life. If you want to enjoy nature, this is the place to visit. A true hidden gem.

Angelo & Donna

P.S. Enjoy the road to Isenthal.

Beautiful location! Perfect for our family of four.

  • 4 of 5

I'll be honest that the drive/road up to this location was not the most fun. But it's worth it for the views! The town is quaint and quiet and a great location for visiting Lucerne and the surrounding areas. The apartment is on the ground floor and just the right size for us. The kitchen had all we needed and there was free parking right up the block. If I were coming back to the area I would definitely stay here again!

Great place for family holiday! Recommended

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was easy to find when we drove from Zurich airport. Location is great for those who wants to enjoy beautiful lake Lucern suroundings. Also is very close to great ski resorts as Sattel and Andermatt. We family with small kids had lots of fun there. Renate was really helpful and very friendly host. Apartment super clean with all necessary equipment. Would definitely recommend to stay and will be back for summer. Many thanks

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Switzerland, and had an absolutely wonderful time. Isenthal is a beautiful place to stay, and this house was perfect for our family. Everything we needed was in the house, and there was plenty of room for our family of 4.

Isenthal is a little more off the beaten path than I had expected, but I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful and magical !!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two children and I stayed for four nights in this lovely, immaculate apartment. Renate greeted us in person and communication before our arrival and during stay was excellent. We were briefed upon arrival about the area and attractions. The apartment has everything required for a comfortable stay. The location was convenient and beautiful specially the drive into Isenthal was amazing. Great location to tour the wonderful areas around Lake Lucerne. Trip to top of mount Titlis was a life time experience. Very conveniently situated from all the beautiful and mesmerising attractions around lake lucerne.

In short this is a lovely part of Switzerland and staying at this apartment made our stay a truly memorable experience. Would love go and stay again.

My husband and I could not have been happier with this simple, but clean and efficient apartment. The village of Isenthal was a true find that we did not want to leave and the patio from the apartment had one of the best views in town! We did lots of hikes right from our doorstep and enjoyed being able to walk to the grocery store and the two restaurants in the village that were both very good. There are also various gondolas (in season) that you can ride up to alp restaurants and more hiking areas. The town had great public transportation for those who do not want to drive. The mountain road up to the village is a little precarious, but we did not have a problem. The village is a little slice of heaven that I almost want to keep a secret so that the word does not get out to everyone. The village is very Swiss and the people were all so friendly and good to us! Our hosts were also super! We look forward to visiting this area, again!
