Great summer experience in the Swiss Alps
John and Jaqueline were both very communicative prior to our trip and were present upon our arrival to show us around their beautiful home. The property itself was spacious enough to easily accommodate our party of 13. That being said, parking space is limited, so guests arriving by rental car would be better served to have as few cars as possible. Guest rooms are clean and comfortable, but the common areas, especially the outdoor balcony, are what make this property special for summer guests. The views of Titlis and other peaks across the valley are stunning! The house is well -stocked with cookware, dinnerware and utensils, but short on items such as paper towels, toilet paper and trash bags. This was only a minor inconvenience, as there are two grocery stores within a 5-minute drive.
Excellent! Nice place for big group and beautiful setting
John and Jacqueline were so nice to greet us and show us around town Engelberg is a great place to stay in Switzerland!
A great place
This is a great place for a family reunion.

Words cannot express how much we enjoyed ...
Overall, we loved our stay and would come back any time if we find ourselves able to visit switzerland again.
Million thanks from our family to lovely hosts.
Lovely views and bucolic setting near town and cable cars
This is a great place for a family reunion and the owners are always very accommodating.
Great for large groups and families
John and Jacqueline were very thoughtful and helpful in assisting us not only prepare for our stay but also during our stay, especially with lifts to and from the house, from the station, delivery of food and local knowledge, (thanks John).
The house its-self has beautiful views and was well-equipped for the nine of our family who stayed. Especially nice was the log fire around which we gathered on the cold winter evenings over Christmas time during our stay.
Words cannot express how much we enjoyed and appreciated this place and our hosts. John and Jacqueline could write on book on how to be excellent hosts - they were helpful and offered many tips on the area but even beyond this they often gave us rides into town, even getting up at 5 in the morning to take one family to the train station as the taxi was not available that early.
The house was spacious, well equipped for anything (even with four rambunctious children) and the views were spectacular. I hope we will be back at some point, it was everything we wanted and much more. Thank you Jacqueline and John!
Thankyou Cynthia, we loved having you here and realized how much you appreciated Engelberg with all its activities. Model guests. We are delighted you had such a good holiday
Sincerely from us both
John and Jacqueline
