“Paradise”

The setting of this house is one of the most phenomenal in the world! The views of the mountains....the quaint village....wow, we were awestruck.

The owners live on the bottom floor, and Dominic was very welcoming, helpful and accomodating.

The house is a 20 minute (somewhat uphill) walk from the town where the train station is. It can take longer, thougn, because you'll have to stop to take pictures!!! Cars are not allowed in the area. There is a taxi service, though.

There is a main room which serves as kitchen, dining room and living room. Surrounding that there are four bedrooms. One has an ensuite bath. Two others are very large with small balconies and fantastic views. Another is small with bunk beds. Three of the bedrooms share a bathroom.
There's a nice garden area, with a picnic spot, room for kids to play. There was also a toy box in the apt.!!
The only things that could make this idyllic retreat better would be more comfy beds (and a larger bed in the Master) and a couple more chairs in the living room.
I hope we can go back some day!!!!

“Everything as described, wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Dominic and Barbara are terrific hosts. The place is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. The views are better than pictured. We followed Dominic's recommended hikes and were not disappointed. We have with 3 children ages 9, 12 and 14 and all loved their stay at Shlosseck. Very happy with our stay. Loved it!

“Loved amazing views, the big airy bedrooms, and the location!!”

My family, consisting of 5 adults (my husband and I and three grown kids) and a 15 & 10 year old, stayed here for 3 days last weekend. We were provided good information by the owners so we knew that we had to park our car in Lauterbrunnen and take the train up to Wengen (for 3 days the cost was around 45 chf). We reserved the parking online ahead of time and were grateful the ski season hadn't fully opened yet so there were spots left available (the following weeks were totally booked). Reserve your parking early during peak season stays. We were able to catch a taxi from the train station in Wengen to get us and our luggage up to Schlosseck the first time. After that, we really enjoyed the 15-20 minute walk into town and absolutely loved the location being out of town. Ski season wasn't open yet and the area was very peaceful and quiet. On an evening walk, I passed a couple of small working farms and at least at that time, it felt very much like a small alpine village. I loved the feell of the area and the amazing views in every direction! It was stunning!!

Two of the bedrooms are huge, open and airy rooms with big windows with window seats. Then there is a smaller room with bunkbeds and a bedroom with it's own bathroom which is a little smaller but more than adequate. There are multiple balconies, and plenty of windows to see the incredible view.

The kitchen is very nice and the kitchen, eating area, and sitting area are all one big space with the bedrooms coming off of it. There is a large balcony of the main area with a small table and chairs so you can enjoy the view while sipping hot chocolate. There is also a balcony with table and chairs off one of the large bedrooms. The main bathroom is well set up for multiple people to use. The bath/shower area closes off from the toilet area so both can be used at the same time.

We really like the central gathering area with a big table. It promoted spending time together. If I had one suggestion to make for the owners, it would be that the couch and chair in that area aren't very comfortable. I think it would have been absolutely perfect if those would have been inviting and comfy.

All in all, we loved this property and setting!! It met the needs of our family of 7 very well! We would love to stay there again sometime.

“Wonderful holiday in an stunning setting”
Reviewed 19 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We were fortunate to have the privilege of staying at Schlosseck in Feb 2014. We were a group of 7 including three kids. The chalet is about a 20 minute walk from the town of Wengen, although you can ski to within about 200 meters from the apartment where there is also a ski lift. The chalet is in a glorious setting with extraordinary views of the Jungfrau Mountain and the Lauterbrunnen Valley. You could spend a life time there and never get tired of the view. The owners are fantastic and very approachable. The apartment was immaculate and the owner arranged (at very short notice) for some basic groceries for us for dinner on our arrival as we arrived quite late. This place must be magnificent in summer!!!

“Superb place to stay - simple yet elegant and spacious”
Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Schlosseck is extremely comfortable - simple yet elegant and spacious. It is picture perfect in the snow and the views from our apartment were wonderful. It has a very peaceful feel to it and yet it is only a few minutes to one of the ski-lifts. The hosts are really friendly and it was a great place to stay as a family.
