                        The place was a little hard to find via GPS but turns out a really cozy little house with spectacular views. Juliet was really prompt and helpful when we had queries, and the house was really very well furnished and stocked with everything we need to have a comfortable stay. The complimentary bottle of wine that Juliet had prepared for us and all the other little touches here were really thoughtful. Also quite close to the town centre if you are driving. Will certainly go back if I am visiting Switzerland again!

                        One of the most beautiful places that I visit in Europe is the city of Interlaken, and which really add this value that the good and professional dealing with the owner of the property The place is beautiful simple contains all the supplies Beautiful views of the lake You can spend the entire day in the Balcony The car parking close to home Nearby city center Access to the city center is easy by car or by bike inside the house i suggested that if they add external lighting of the house from the back. Because is very dark and a little scary at night That place is beautiful and has a high Privacy

                        We spent a week at the Boat House in September 2013. We really enjoyed our stay and can strongly recommend it. Although small, it had everything we needed and we found it very comfortable. It was great to sit on the balcony and look across the river. There always seemed to be something happening, be it pleasure boats, trains, joggers, or the changing clouds across the valley. You could easily walk along the riverside path into Interlaken or beyond to Unterseen. Interlaken was a good centre for exploring the whole region: the Thunersee and Brienzersee, the Lauterbrunnen and Grindelwald valleys, the Giessbach and Reichenbach Falls, and the three passes (Grimsel, Furka, Susten). We also had a lovely day in Bern, conveniently reached by train. We thought the Boat House was a great place to stay and there are many more things to do if we came again.

                        We couldn't have picked a more stunning setting for our first part of our Honeymoon in July...... The apartment was small, very small, but it was brilliantly laid out and really worked. I had the best nights sleep in that bed, and the views in the morning are to die for! I've never seen water so turquoise. On our arrival we came across a bottle of wine and a mountain of helpful leaflets, which was a great personnel touch. We used the Mountain bikes everyday to get about, it's quite a walk into town if you don't use them! Unfortunately we were disturbed between the hours of 7am-6pm on a couple of occasions by noisy building work going on over the other side of the river, but we might just been unlucky and it may only have been going on for the few days whilst we were there, & the owner wouldn't have had any control over this so we could hardly complain at the time. We soon realised we had the best spot on the river, and a trip on the water ferry/Taxi is a must as you can view the Boat House from the river side, then you really get to see the fantastic setting that its positioned in!! We both tried to use the Kayak, however It only had one seat, we just couldn't see how two people were meant to use it......... So my Husband enjoyed a trip up and down the river quite happily whilst I took photos of him from the balcony............ Location,Cleanliness,Views, communication with the owner and Value for Money TOP marks, would re-book again in a second, such a little gem.

                        The Boat House is a perfect next for two. It's small, but has everything needed. My husband and i made good use of the bicycles to get to town, as well as the kayak to enjoy the river. The balcony was a favorite spot to sit and watch the river roll by. It was so convenient to ride the bikes into the train station and then all of the alps were available to us. We also used the bikes to pick up groceries at the COOP. It was great to save a little money by cooking in one night, since Switzerland is pretty expensive. The kitchen came with all we needed, including coffee and a welcome bottle of wine. The apartment was very clean and comfy, with a very tiny bathroom. It kind of feels like the bathroom on a cruise ship. Juliet was very helpful, and provided information for us, and when an issue came up solved it quickly. The trek from the train station is a little long the first time, but it is worth it to be away from the hustle and bustle of Interlaken. I would recommend this property to fit couples who want to be away from it all.

                        Right by the river down from Interlaken, we found it a bright and light studio with wonderful views to the mountains. It is as described a 5m by 5m studio, but for the two of us it was perfect. Cleaned and well maintained, and the owner was very easy to deal with. For us, we couldn't have imagine staying anywhere better in Interlaken.

                        Cozy, nice, tidy house to stay in on the riverside. Great location, a footpath goes to the centre of Interlaken, and close to the train station and to the lakes. Thank you very much. The prices is really reasonable.

                        The Boathouse is in a beautiful spot on the banks of the River Are just outside of Interlaken city. The accommodation has all the necessary facillities. . . even if some are a little limted. The bathroom is ridiculously small. Access to a couple of pushbikes made it easy to get around. . .getting into town could be a drama without some type of transport. Clothes washing and drying facilities are available and was a real bonus. It is a very relaxing place to stay. The owner's communication and response to our enquiries was excellent in the lead-up to our stay. Great support from the owner's friend helped to iron out any hiccups that may have occurred in her absence. Would be a great summer stay if you are keen to use the river.

                      About: I am from the UK and fell in love with Interlaken on my first visit in 2001. I now live here permanently with my son Charles. I hope to make your first stay in Interlaken as special as mine was, or your returning visit one to remember.
