The holiday home consists of a living room (incl. 100Hz cable TV, DVD player, WLAN, and stereo system), a bedroom, and a child’s room (w/extra bed), as well as a nicely furnished kitchen, and a bath with a tub and shower. All areas are equipped with heated floors. They have separate entrances and their own partially covered terraces. The window frames to the terrace can be opened completely. For some physical activity, there is a table tennis setup and, out on the meadow, a trampoline and a sitting area for some relaxation. The sauna with tepidarium and hot tub can also be rented out. The fire pit can be used for a bonfire or for some grilling fun out in nature. There is a free community pool near the banks of the Rhine and many inviting, hot springs in the area. The home is located at the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac and the new, cycling path starts right on the property. NO PAYMENTS BY WESTERN UNION OR CHECK! THE TOTAL AMOUNT IS DUE 1 MONTH BEFORE ARRIVAL! The area: for a diverse offering of leisure activities, there are a variety of flyers to help you explore the region according to your own tastes. Public transportation can take you straight to the heart of the Swiss metropolis of Zurich. In addition to its lakeside location with stunning views of the snow covered Alps, Zurich offers over 150 museums, galleries, cathedrals, and a zoo as well as a unique shopping experience full of international labels and sophisticated Swiss brands. Countless cafes, clubs, bars, and other hubs of activity round out the multifaceted offering of late-night options. Of course, the street festivals, like Zürifest, Caliente, and many more cannot be ignored. The rustic Baden, with its gorgeous setting, features an interesting and historic, city centre; plenty of cultural opportunities; and the unique, mineral-rich, thermal springs (maximum Swiss total mineralisation of 4450mg/l at 46.6°C, Aquae Helveticae), as well as the Baden Grand Casino and the teddy bear museum. The area: The beautiful Upper Rhine Valley hiking trail to Bad Zurzach is a great way to get there by foot or bike (PT is also available). The location boasts a hot spring, which includes the Spa Medical Wellness Center; a castle with a substantial clock collection; castle ruins; and other historic structures. In the Reuenthal Fortress Museum and the Full Swiss Military Museum, an original German Tiger II tank is on display and in the nearby German village of Waldshut, there is a plethora of antique, rummage, and weekly markets with a special, historic ambiance. The cultural heritage site of Kaiserstuhl is possessed of many charms and the picturesque Regensberg, with its castle and upper/lower forts, is worth working into your agenda. The Mammoth Museum in Niederwenningen is located directly on the road. A nostalgic steam engine travels between Schaffhausen/Blumberg on the weekends over the summer, running along the famous Pigtail Line through the Wutach Valley. You can also take a boat trip along the Rhine to the Schaffhausen Rhine Falls, enjoy a wine tasting, admire the Alpine roses, visit a cheesemaker and try some of their offerings, take a hot air balloon ride, watch an antique car rally, or visit a mine, a cloister, or the Augusta Raurica–there is just so much to discover. Aargau is the Swiss canton with the most castles and forts. Daytrips to Bern, Zug, Schwyz, Lucerne, St. Moritz, Lake Constance and Lake Lucerne, the Grindwald Glacier Gardens, the Rapperswil-Jona Rose Garden, the Säntis Massif, the seven Churfirsten and the Flumserberg, Heidiland, the tall mountains that shield Andermatt & Gotthard, the Matterhorn, Eger, Mönch, & Jungfrau, are all great for enjoying the snow, even in the summertime.

I'm so bummed I couldn't stay entire length I reserved. I loved the property, the area and the owner was VERY hospitable. Will recommend this place anyone. If you like peace, quiet and seclusion this area and property is a go to.
Thanks and nice that you liked the Ferienhüsli. You are welcome for another visit with a longer staying...
Have a good time!
Very comfortable, private apartment, part of the owners home. Torsten and Cathrin were always available for questions and were very helpful and welcoming. If you do not like to be in but near the city, this is a great spot. Only 20-30 mins to Zurich. The Aldi store across the German border ten mins away is your go to for cheap groceries. The hot tub is only available in winter time heads up, but the bath tub in the apartment is just as good!!
Classic cottage with basic amenities
The scenery is beautiful in this small Black Forest village. The driving directions weren't very straight forward so be sure you have a GPS device or have a data plan on your cell phone to help with navigation. Parking is a little cramped at the cottage so be prepared. The owners were courteous & provided information so we could grocery shop in a nearby village. Great trip.
For a better finding, we always send a plan after booking...
Thanks for your visit and greetings to Alaska.
Depending on what you are looking for this apartment is nearly perfect
We stayed for 3 nights in May as part of the first leg on a 2 week vacation. We wanted a location that was quiet and afforded us an opportunity to acclimate to the time change and provide a launch place to explore the area of northern Switzerland. For those purposes this apartment is a perfect option.
Pros- The apartment is clean and comfortable. In particular we thought the beds were amazingly comfortable and afforded our rest and time zone adjustment
- The surrounding country side is spectacular and us arriving in early may it is hard to imagine a more picturesque setting. We put about 500 km on our rental in 3 days sightseeing in the area.
- The roads in the area are easily driveable and access is good to Germany as others have mentioned in their reviews
- There was plenty of space for our group of 4 with college age sons.
- Cathrin and her husband were welcoming and helpful in orienting to the area and providing directions
Cons- The WiFi works but you have to stand outside or in the kitchen for good access. This wasn't a problem for us, but I could imagine that others might.
- Parking was difficult for us. The apartment is located at the end of a road in neighborhood. It was possible to park, but getting in and out was sometimes tricky. There were a couple of large vehicles taking up space that might not always be there. As I mentioned, we were able to make it work.
- Access to the bathroom is limited. The one bathroom is accessed through the master bedroom. If 2 couples were sharing the apartment it would be awkward to access the bathroom at night. For our purposes, we were staying with our children and it wasn't an issue.
Overall, we would certainly stay again, and given what we wanted to do the apartment was nearly perfect.
Many thanks for your efforts Ed and many regards.
Because of the badroom is a roomplan at our homepage and we informate our gast, if they not one family. In the next step we want to swich the intternet provider, but more power is in 2018 possible!
We are pleased, you liked our Ferienhüsli.ch
Finest regards to Texas from Switzerland

Clean and Nice Stay
We spend 5 nights here in Aug 2016 ... The house is clean and cozy ... The village is quiet and relaxing ... Germany is 10 mins away .. Where you can go for a cheaper grocery ..
Zurich is just 30 mins by car ... Unfortunately there was no Internet .. The one they offer .. you have to go outside the house to get the signal ... The host lady and her daughter ( Cathrine and Anna ) are very kind and helpful .. They were around whenever we needed something ( they also washed some cloths for us when we asked about a laundry shop ) ..
It was pity their trampoline was broken .. The kids would love it .. Was one of my reasons to stay here honestly.
We liked our stay ... So many things and places to do and go close to the house .. Car is necessary for that ..
Thanks Cathrine and Anna
Great property in a lovely location to explore Switzerland
Excellent property in a great location for exploring the surrounding areas of Switzerland and Germany. The rooms are very clean with comfy beds and plenty of room for a family. We travelled as a family of 4 with two young children and it proved to be perfect. The apartment is quite roomy with parking outside. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We explored the surrounding areas, Zurich, Lucern, Germany, Basel, and drove the Furka and Grimsel passes. This location was great for all of these things.. There is no local shop in Siglistorf but a post office and a Bar/Pizzera. There are some lovely walks to do locally into the surrounding woodlands. I will certainly be recommending it to friends. Excellent place for a quiet break away.
Siglistorf is located in the sunny valley of the Upper Rhine at the edge of the Jura Mountains between Zurich, Baden, Bad Zurzach, and the southern Black Forest, in a diverse, natural landscape that begins right at the doorstep of the home. It is just 15 minutes to Bad Zurzach or Baden, 30 minutes to Zurich or Schaffhausen (Rhine Falls) and 0 minutes to gorgeous nature. The newly-built, bicycle path is located directly at the end of the property and offers something for everyone along its extensive, cycling tour. Horseback riding is available in both the neighbouring towns and, when combined with the nearby forest and its countless, winding roads, is sure to be a truly impressive experience. Public transportation is available for visits to the Zurich metropolis and the historic town of Kaiserstuhl on the Rhine, as well as the hot springs in Baden or Bad Zurzach, the casino, or the Swiss Military Museum in Full-Reuenthal, where one of the original German Tiger II tanks is on display, if that piques your interest.
