The spiffy fully equipped modern kitchen has granite counter tops, dishwasher, 4 burner stove and oven. The fridge has a freezer. There is a bar with bar stools. The chalet has a wood burning stove and radiant floor heating. In the winter it is essentially ski in/ski out offering ski lockers and boot warmers.. You will love this space in the typical charming Swiss village of Murren.
We're adjacent to a wildlife preserve, with daily sightings of graceful charming Chamois, so we cannot accommodate dogs or cats.
If you want spacious, quiet, private, cozy and spectacular, this place is for you. World famous hiking and skiing are at the doorstep. And a Peace you've never before experienced.
After you check in, you'll be welcomed by our wonderful Property Managers Dave or Karleen, who will help you fill out the Kurtaxe form. While we pay the Kurtaxe for you, you need the filled out form in order to pick up the "Kurkarte" ID card at the Sports Center. With this card you can enjoy the free indoor swimming pool/hot tub plus free ice-skating in the winter. You can also benefit from discounts at various stores.
To access the chalet, you will take the BLM cable car from Lauterbrunnen, via Grutschalp. Turn right when leaving the Murren train station and enter 2nd historic chalet on left side of road. Here are ski lockers where you can store your skis/boards et al, before ascending an outdoor stairway of 60 steps to Chalet Snowbird. There are also boot warmers near the ski lockers. At the chalet, you are rewarded with the best view of the Eiger North Wall & Jungfrau Massif that Murren has to offer!
During Christmas, New Years and February there is a 7 night minimum stay required, from Saturday to Saturday. The rest of the year, there is a 3 night minimum, or a 3 night charge for stays of less than 3 nights.
We ask that you take good care of our new home, treating it with the same care & respect you'd use in your own home. Please leave the home as you found it with clean kitchen. Enjoy the beauty that is Murren.
My Swiss born (Murren!) Olympic skier husband, Beat, and I live in Salt Lake City where I am a Travel Consultant and he is a Ski Area Planner. We have 2 children. He grew up in Murren's 4* Hotel Eiger. At his parent's death, he inherited 2 superb view building lots on the north edge of the Village of Murren. During 2011 and 2012 he has built two chalets, now available for rent. We are avid skiers/hikers. Our family cherishes the extraordinary scenery and village atmosphere of Murren. We're excited to introduce/share it with other skiers/hikers/seekers of Peace, harmony and clean air! Nancy von Allmen
