This highly acclaimed, spacious, middle floor, 3 bedroom apartment is in a quiet chalet of only 6 apartments and is comfortable with a generous 110sq m of living space. We have 67 reviews all at 5 stars so you can be sure that we'll work hard to give you the holiday of a lifetime. You have here an opportunity to holiday in the famous Lauterbrunnen valley of 72 waterfalls. As you can see from the main photos that there are no chalets to the side or directly in front of ours and it is not by the road so it is likely to be much quieter than some others! The chalet has easy access to local shops, restaurants and the local train/cable car services to the Alpine villages of Wengen, Grindlewald and Mürren, from which you can access the many hundreds of kilometres of walking trails and ski runs. It is also convenient for access to the major towns of Interlaken, Bern and Lucerne. Getting to Lauterbrunnen either by train or car is very easy. A car is not essential but there is a lockable garage available to you free of charge. Whether your choice is Summer or Winter you can be sure of lots to do, or just relax with the fantastic views from our balcony. It is fitted out to a high standard for discerning people. The living area has a full width SOUTH facing balcony for sun bathing or eating outside and captures the view of the snow capped mountains all year round. The master bedroom has a sloping pine ceiling and looks to the Staubbach waterfall as do both other bedrooms and kitchen. Free wireless broadband is available. The price, based on up to 6 people, also includes heating, cleaning, linen, local taxes and taxed rubbish bags i.e. there are no extras. Please note that smoking is not allowed inside. We don't use bunk beds, sofa beds or shower curtains so your stay will be very comfortable. All reviews are genuinely and independently written by guests. The availability chart is kept up to date daily. If you have a larger group we will try to find a second apartment for you through our contacts.

Rob & Susi Weaver purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Rob & Susi Weaver chose Lauterbrunnen
Susi comes from Switzerland so it was a natural development for us to buy an apartment near ski resorts and walking areas. We fell in love with this property and Lauterbrunnen immediately, as you will too. Why this property? Simply, the convenience and location.
What makes this Apartment unique
The view from the balcony is a "wow" all year round. Please read any of the 64 reviews all at 5 stars. The chalet is warm and inviting and so convenient for everything. The balcony is warm for most parts of the year but the apartment is cool in the summer and cosy in the winter with underfloor heating. Summer air conditioning is unnecessary.

Location is just superb! View from balcony is breathtaking! Whole valley is right in front of you and ready to be explored. Very clean and spacious apartment for our family of 5. Well equipped kitchen. Bus stop is next to fist chalet by the road, we didn't have to use a car during a whole stay at Lauterbrunnen. Close to a mini supermarket and even closer to small convenience store at campground on other side of the river. Perfect home base to explore many attractions on both sides of the valley. Train and lift station 3 min ride by bus. Very efficient public transportation system. Owners advice for side trips were right on a money. All information and communication with owners was perfect. You will get all details right away. We could not be happier with whole rental experience.
Thank you for writing this review that will be most helpful to all viewing our apartment on this website. We are most grateful to you. Please come again soon and tell your friends about us.
Great apartment- appropriately priced-great communication
We have stayed at this apartment complex many times before and return as it “works for us” This particular apartment was one of the best we have stayed in but to be honest they are quite similar! ( sorry Rob). What makes the difference is Robs communication and the view from the bedrooms of the waterfalls.
Downside is a Softish mattress in the main bedroom but other than that the apartment is very clean well furnished and large.
As a general comment this apartment does require you to be organised in the morning if you want to be skiing before 10 but it does give you the choice of Mürren or Wengen/Grindelwald once you are At lauterbrunnen train station. The reasonable price reflects the fact you are in the valley ( for skiing) night life isn’t huge so most suited ( for skiing) for families on a budget in a top quality resort/UNESCO heritage site
Thank you for this constructive, helpful review. Types of mattresses are a personal thing. The one mentioned was expensive and we liked it so much that we had it shipped out from UK. However, we are replacing both in the 2nd bedroom next month.
Please come again.
Had an amazing holiday here. Lauterbrunnen is just fabulous and the Weaver apartment lived up to all expectations- well appointed, quiet, and immaculate. The hosts instructions covered every possible aspect of the workings of the chalet and apart from a dearth of dishwasher tablets and washing detergent, nothing could have been better. Will come again- need to see Lauterbrunnen in the snow!
One of our best holidays ever.
Great chalet in an idyllic setting. Snow covered mountain view from the balcony, what more could you want? This must be one of the most beautiful valleys in the world. Very comfortable accommodation and well maintained.
Rob and Susi kept in touch with us and ensured that all was well. They very helpfully warned us of a road closure that would have seriously upset our leaving arrangements. We are very likely to return in the future.
Thank you for this most helpful review. We are most grateful.
Perfect for a family stay in Lauterbrunnen
This was the perfect place for our family to stay while visiting the Berner Overland - clean, spacious, comfortable and all of the necessary amenities. The view from this apartment is incredible and it is a short, pleasant walk to the centre of Lauterbrunnen. The owners are a pleasure to deal with - we really appreciated the opportunity to stay in this great apartment and hope to return.
It was most kind of you to write such a glowing review of our apartment.
Your comments about your dealings with me are especially appreciated and helpful, I'm sure, to future enquirers.
Please come again.
Heaven in Lauterbrunnen!
The Weaver apartment exceeded its five star reviews. The location was the perfect spot from which to explore the area. I struggled with where to stay (Lauterbrunnen, Interlaken, Murren, Wengen etc.) and was so glad to be in Lauterbrunnen because it is central to everything yet allowed us to relax in the quiet with the amazing views. The three bedrooms and two baths were ideal for our family of 6. There is a bubbling brook right outside and views of the waterfalls from every room. Having the camp store and restaurant right next door were an added bonus. We stayed 5 nights and wished we had more time. It was the highlight of our trip. We would love to return and would not consider staying anywhere else! The hosts were great, with detailed instructions, and the apartment manager (Tina) is lovely.
This is our 60th review at 5 stars and we are touched by the comments.
Thank you so much. Please come again.
The Lauterbrunnen Valley is surrounded by the unspoilt natural beauty of the magnificent Swiss Alps including the Eiger mountain. Lauterbrunnen's cascading 300 metre high Staubbach waterfall, viewed from all bedrooms, becomes even more impressive when illuminated at night. The famous Trummelbach falls inside the Jungfrau are a short walk away. An easy walk along the valley brings you to Stechelberg with access to superb mountain walking. 10 minutes walk in the other direction are the main shops, restaurants, banks and post office. There is also a yellow Postbus which takes only 3 minutes to the station. Interlaken is 15 minutes drive or train ride away with its wide variety of shops and lake pursuits. Lauterbrunnen is a great base to explore the Jungfrau Ski Region. There are 45 mountain trains, cable cars, chair and ski lifts, with 210km of pistes for skiers, 100km of winter hiking and cross-country tracks, and 50km of sledge runs. Other Activities: heli-skiing, helicopter rides, hotel spas Golf: There is a qualtiy 9 hole course in Interlaken about 20 minutess drive away. Other Sports White water rafting in late Spring/Early Summer Shooting Ski: The prices in Switzerland are fairly comparable with UK and many other countries. For example here are the skiing prices:The three areas covering 213 km of pistes are linked with a single pass or you can purchase for part of the area: 2 days about 130CHF, 6 days about 300CHF. Individual passes valid for each area: 1 day about 60CHF, 2 days 110CHF. All the resorts have ski schools offering both daily classes and private lessons in skiing and snowboarding. Ski hire is available in Lauterbrunnen and the other areas. The cross country skiing track is situated right outside our chalet. Why stay in Wengen where apartments rent for about 50% more than ours when ours is so accessible to Wengen and Mürren?
