We had a fabulous time with Bradley, Marianna and their kiddos! What a lovely family. We had as much fun getting to know them as we did viewing the beautiful area surrounding them, although from the moment we met them, we felt as if we had known them forever. Their breakfasts were fabulous, and their recommendation for dinner was outstanding as well. I cannot think of one thing we would change. Thank you so much. Bob and Judy Johannesen, Texas
Views are incredible. Bradley and Marianna and the children are so friendly, helpful, and great conversationalists. Marianna gave us some vitamin C and Echinacea for our colds. Bradley provided an electrical plug for our hairdryer and electric razor when ours didn't work. Breakfast is very good. You are made to feel like you are a family member. The whole area is so peaceful, beautiful, and charming, yet close enough to Interlaken if you want more activities. We will DEFINITELY be back when we come to Switzerland again.
Where do I start? This was one of the best experience of our lives. We felt like that Bradley, Marianna and the kids were our own family and as if we always knew them. 1. Let me start with the Service: It was Exceptionally outstanding, as I said, it was as we were part of their family. 2. Cleanliness: I cannot stress enough on the cleanliness that we found there. Again, it was Exceptionally Outstanding. 3. Onsite Dining: Marianna was absolutely terrific, her breakfasts were amazing, especially her own style pan cakes which were out of the world. One evening, she made us awesome sandwich of tortilla stuffed with cheese and we became instant fan of this snack. 4. Value: We found it a great value for money as B&B is situated in the middle of beautiful Mountains and scenery. So money did not matter. Rooms: House is kinda historical and beautiful. Rooms aren't on the newer side of things but beds were very comfortable and each room had a sink, which for a family of 5 was a great convenience. Every room had a beautiful scenery so imagine waking up to a beautiful sight front of your eyes, Ah! just blissful. The best of all: We are Muslims and it was our first experience staying with a Christian family with a Jewish background. We learned a great deal of similarities from each other and I think this was the best I could provide my children in terms of meeting a brilliant family with a different background and discover similarities among Muslims, Christians and Jews. I can go on and on for the whole day but I will leave some suspense for the future visitors haha. I would recommend anyone, doesn't matter where you are from or which background you come from, please come and stay in Haus Schonegg. I can definitely say that hopefully this will not be our last trip there and whenever we will go to Switzerland, we will be booking Bradley and Marainna's B&B, because this place is more than just a B&B for us. Best wishes from Khurram, Aa'ishah and kids
We were 6 peaple with 3 kids under 16.5 years, staying there for 1 week. We highly recommend this place. For the beautiful house, the rich and such a tasty breakfasts, and above all, the special hosts that gave us a warm feeling like at home. Excellent location, quiet and peaceful with a fairy tale view. Excellent value for money and beyond. Brad, Mariana & the kids will stay in our hearts forever. Zeev Hosmand
Our family of 5 were warmly welcomed and the rooms and House were better than described! Absolutely Beautiful location with mountain views and a glacial stream in view from our rooms! Marianna and Brad were terrific hosts! Excellent breakfasts and conversations each day. Just a few minutes to Interlaken. We will definitely book Haus Schoneg again!
The family at Haus Schonegg is amazing! The breakfast is terrific! The views are breathtaking! We would stay there again if we travel back to Switzerland. It was truly one of the best experiences of our two-week visit to Europe.
Our hosts were warm and engaging people, and the rooms and setup were very neat and clean, and beautifully decorated. The location is absolutely stunning, and we took a lovely walk on the mountain roads that was quite inspiring. We would absolutely stay there again, and would recommend it to others.
This was our first time in Switzerland (2 adult, 2 kids). Driving the road leading to Haus Schonegg was a welcome on it's own: endless forests splatted on enormous, cloud-reaching mountains. The house it self is strategically located on what looks like a scene from a postcard you'd send home, huge trees, river just underneath you, snowy-peaked mountains, and the cleanest air you'd ever breath. We were welcomed by Bradly and Mariana the warmest welcome we can imagine, they were polite, helpful, ready to assist with anything we asked for, their hospitality and warm welcome remains the strongest impression to date. The rooms are very nice, more then enough for our family (we stayed in two rooms). Everything was very clean, very tidy, beds are super-comfortable, it's been a great pleasure. Bradly and Mariana serves fresh, very rich and tasty breakfast, it was way over what we could eat, and even our picky-eating children enjoyed the assortment and delicious cooking. While the facilities, breakfast and scenery, all were just perfect, we would say the the biggest "selling point" is Bradly, Mariana, their children and their dogs: They are welcoming, always smiling, interesting to have discussions with, our children played with their kids and dogs, we couldn't possibly asked for a better place to stay in our vacation. In terms of reaching around, we had a rented car, and we had endless places to choose anywhere from 15 minutes drive, up to however we cared to drive. We highly _highly_ recommend Haus Shonegg, it is one of the places that really leaves their impressions on you years to come.
There is a saying: a house is built by hands, a home is built by hearts. Haus-Schonegg is an amazing house & location, but the key there is the amazing family. We've stayed at Haus-Schonegg for 5 nights (Aug. 2015, Parents & 2 kids) The family's hospitality was very welcoming and warm. Bradley, Marianna and their kids have helped us a lot and were very kind. Their kids are so great and intelligent. our kids played with them each evening when we got back from our activities. They all know so many languages, so you will probably find it very easy to communicate. The rooms are very cosy. baths and W.C are all clean. Breakfast: WOW. An amazing breakfast-each morning a new surprise :-)
We had the pleasure of recently staying with this family and we all felt like it was the second time we had met them. Everyone was beyond nice and treated us like we were part of the family. From advice on what to do in the area, borrowing ski bibs, last minute cooking because we couldn't find anything open, to playing games with the kids, I can't say enough about our time with them other than it was too short. If you are looking at a bed and breakfast in the alps and close to Interlaken, you can't go wrong here! If we ever make it back we will be visiting the family again!
We stayed at Haus Schonegg in August with my parents and our family of 4. Brad and his family went out of their way to make our stay amazing! The house is regal, just look at the pictures. The location is not too far to drive to the "main attractions" and the valley they live in is really very beautiful. They have a fantastic view from the living room and we read bedtime stories as we watched the sun color the peaks. Great memories. Brad and Marianna are incredible servants and great cooks. My daughter still (yes, 3 months later) raves about Marianna's pancakes! They helped us with our itineraries, directions, etc and got us off to a good start each day. While we had the place to ourselves mostly, they do have other guests, and their kids are really nice and very respectful of our holiday. If you're in the area, this is a great alternative to the more "popular" areas. We'd definitely stay again, or maybe go there for cooking or language classes! Stop looking and book it. You won't be sorry.
Haus Schönegg is wonderful! We fell in love with the inn and the family. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the views are incredible. Breakfast was excellent. The entire family made us feel welcome and were very helpful with finding things to do. Both at the inn, with the kids hanging out and having fun together, and around the area, where we went paragliding (which was outstanding) and to the Rodelbahn at Kandersteg, which was a hoot and a beautiful hike as well. Highly recommended! The Kregel Family
My family of 4 adults and 2 kids and had a true experience of staying in a century old Swiss house with the most breathtaking views ever!! We can't stop raving about it and wish we could stay longer. The warm hospitality of all the family members was very heartening and made us feel at home. The kids had a great time playing with their sons and dogs. We wish we could come back here again one day. Our only low point was that there was just 1 bathroom given we had so many members and it was a struggle getting everyone ready in time. However, the family had informed us of this in advance and so we were prepared. This would have added that additional star to our reviews but this was nothing to worry about given the wonderful experience we had. Thanks Bradley, Mariannne and family!
The views from the house were stunning. I can't imagine more gorgeous scenery than what we saw out our bedroom balcony. The location was great for its spectacular views and easy access to Interlaken, Thun, and other great attractions. We loved staying out in the "real" Switzerland and we were even fortunate to see local farmers herding their cows up the road to the mountains for the summer. Bradley, Marianna and their children were awesome hosts and we felt very much at home. Our breakfasts were great and their home had a very comfortable atmosphere. We highly recommend this B & B. Kathie Taylor
This was the best and the friendliest bed and breakfast place we have ever stayed in. Bradley and Marianna really made our stay like visiting a family with perks of not helping around the house. First of all, the communication part cannot be easier since they speak 7 languages and can help with suggestions about many local attractions based on your family interests. The house and surroundings were so picturesque that we didn’t want to leave. We could not stop making pictures of the mountains and neighboring villages from our balcony. One of their daughters Lirit was free from school one day and she took us to waterfalls near by and that personal attention really made us feel welcomed. Breakfast in the morning with homemade pancakes, jam and sour cream was delicious.
We booked two nights in Haus Schönegg, from the 24th to the 26th December. We were in 6 adults and 2 kids and, as Brazilians, our wish was having our first X-mas with snow. It seems that this place, and the family who live there, are so magical and blessed that even snow they could deliver to us, at the very best moment: the morning of 25th December, when we woke up with one of the most wonderful views all of us had in our lives. The Alps where colored in a deep white and the lawn, which was still green at the day before, was making no more contrast with Chicho, the beautiful white-haired dog from the House. That was a fairy tale coming from the books to us. Taking some time with the family was an amazing experience, and it is wonderful how this family with their hospitality, some awesome food and also the huge language skills of the kids (who could speak at about 5 idioms each) can catch your best feelings and give you a sense of the peace in which they live on and for which they live for. I strongly recommend!
My wife stayed for three night in this delightful B&B in early October 2013. Bradley, Marianna and the children all made us feel so welcome. The steep, winding drive up to their home was a little "hairy" first time but after we had done it a few times it was OK. The "picture postcard"view from our balcony was stunning. The rooms, facilities and breakfasts were outstanding. I can highly recommend this B&B. Kevin
Haus Schonegg is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in. We were made to feel incredibly welcome not only by Bradley and Marianna but also their charming children (and their gorgeous dogs!). With stunning 360 degree views, breakfasts with local produce and their own fmaily recipes (russian pancakes), comfortable rooms and ideal placement for access to places such as Interlaken and Adelboden we will definately return when in the area again. Cheryl & Jake
What a wonderful introduction to B&B's. This was one of the first B&B's my wife, teenage daughter and I have ever visited and we were more than pleasantly surprised. Bradley, Marianna and the kids were great hosts and we immediately felt like we had returned to a long time friend's home for a visit. The rooms were very nice, each room had it's own sink, the shared bathroom and shower were very clean, the balcony and view was just simply breath taking. The area and scenery was so beautiful and pleasant. We loved our walk to the local town, down trails and to the pristine river. We really loved our conversations with not only the parents but the kids! It was so warm and friendly that we regretted not booking a longer stay...we miss Haus Schonegg very much! We would highly recommend this to any and everyone as Haus Schonegg, Bradley, Marianna and the kids now have a special place in our life experiences and in our heart.
We were not disappointed to stay at Haus Schonegg following stays in London, Paris, and Basel during our trip! We wanted a real taste of Switzerland, with peace and solitude--away from the hustle and bustle. Haus Schonegg was wonderful. Our family of 4 (including 2 teenage kids, ages 13 and 15) had a great time. We were made to feel as part of the family. Our kids enjoyed each other's company playing ping pong, board games, etc., and our entire family was awed by the gorgeous surroundings. It truly is like being in a postcard. For dinner, we made the short walk to Kiental each evening and ate at a local restaurant. Breakfast every morning was prepared by Marianna and was ample and delicious. Our family had no problem navigating each day back and forth to Interlaken and other surrounding areas, using the local bus (which stops just in front of Haus Schonegg) as needed to catch the train. To top off a wonderful stay, we celebrated Maria's 45th birthday our last night there---and Bradley, Marianna, and family were so thoughtful as to prepare a cake to celebrate! It was delicious and what a memorable birthday! Our rooms were comfortable, clean, and had everything we needed. Thank You for everything!!!!
Our stay at Haus Schonegg exceeded our expections. We stayed longer than we had planned because of the wonderful hospitality and peaceful setting of this bed and breakfast. Each morning we awoke to the sun rising over the mountains and the gentle sound of the rushing river as it tumbled through the valley. We enjoyed warm hospitality, delicious food, and a peaceful reprieve at Haus Schonegg. We have told friends and family in the States of our wonderful time in Switzerland and we phighly recommend Haus Schonegg as our favorite place to stay.
We loved Haus Schonegg and the family who owns it! Everyone in the family went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Our rooms (and balconies!!) were private and gave us the time to just sit and drink in the beauty together, but whenever we needed help or advice, each were eager to help. When we couldn't find the public grill tucked in the woods they'd told us about, one of them took us there. Above and beyond what we could have expected!! The breakfast Marianna made started our days off perfectly. Rooms are small & comfortable with a sink in each room. Our rooms had small balconies & we spent much of our time on them. A shared bathroom down the hall has a shower separate from the toilets making it not difficult to share. Truly a lovely home transformed into a comfortable BnB w/ small, lovely yard & large picnic table. Enjoyed eating dinner and watching the kids play in the yard, & listening to the cowbells in the distance. The charm and beauty of this BnB & village make the sacrifice of a private bathroom well worth it. Kiental offers wonderful hikes & is located near spectacular outings. Took our car up the Griesalps for a fabulous view & coffee and dessert at a restaurant at the top. Also rode chairlift to top of another mountain in the valley & had a nice 1 hr stroll down. Loved it! We couldn't bear to leave Kiental & Haus Schonegg!
After numerous trips to Europe including to Germany, Austria and Switzerland over the past 35 years, I was looking for the ideal place for beauty, relaxation and somewhat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life for my adult grandson and myself. We found this here in Kiental with a wonderful, generous family who welcomed us like family members. We enjoyed music, excellent conversation and good food and yet had the freedom to be ourselves and go off individually and together into the high Alps. The nearby town is a short walking distance and also provides a sense of history as well as good food. The host family is multilingual and fun to be around.
A wonderful BnB tucked away off the beaten track. A homely lodge hosted by a very welcoming family. Well worth the effort to get there! The location is truly representative of a traditional Swiss alpine village where the villagers still farm for their livelihood.
We stayed in this B & B for 3 nights. From the moment we arrived the family was so welcoming. This is why we booked our stay at a B & B was to receive local advice on attractions and get a feel for the culture and community. This family receives an A+ for meeting all of our expectations. It is very obvious why this B & B received an outstanding scenery award. Out of all of our Switzerland photos the one outside of this home is our favorite; it the true beauty of the country!
We spent 3 wonderful days at Haus Schonegg this year. Dear Marianna, Bradley and Kids! Thank you for the hearty welcome, delicious buffet and warm, very clean rooms. Your Russian friends, Sasha, Oksana, Andrew and Sergey
Haus Schonegg is a delightful place to stay. The accommodations were clean and well taken care of. The host family went out of their way to treat us as their family. The breakfast was scrumptious. The view was heavenly. Hope to visit again. Highly recommend.
