Prices

Prices are in Swiss Francs per room and night, including breakfast, unless otherwise noted. Net prices (incl. VAT and tourist fees). Dinner is not included in the price, unless special arrangements have been made.

Inclement weather

The Oeschinensee can also be wonderful in the rain. Naturally, the radius of movement will be smaller during inclement weather than with sunshine, but you can still take walks and go on hikes if you have a good raincoat. You can warm yourself by the fireplaces in the lounge and restaurant. The lounge contains board games, books and a TV. Toys for children are also available.

Quiet hours

Many of our guests value peace and quiet in the evening and during the night. So we ask you to show mutual respect. We don’t want music and commotion in our house until the morning hours.
