Luzern to Como. Where to stay in between fo 2 nights?

We are traveling to Switzerland in mid September. We have 3 nights booked in Luzern, then 2 nights spare and then we travel on to Como.

I would prefer to travel by train (or some other public transport)

I had originally decided to stay in Montreux, but the distance is just too far. Could anyone suggest somewhere, accessible by train, that we could stay for two nights, mid week?

I have no real interest in seeing snow (already go enough of it this year..). I am pregnant, so will not be climbing up any steep mountains or have no real need for late nightlife.... I would love to see some of the mountains - just not have to climb up them!!

A town, with a choice of restaurants and preferably near a lake would be the perfect place to relax! (Loved Lugano and Como on previous visits to the area).

Thank you in advance.

for 2 nights i would suggest lugano again. alternatively, you could go to locarno (roughly 1 hour before lugano - by train). try to find an hotel in muralto (the lakeside of locarno), recently, they have also opened a new ibis hotel: just navigate in internet and you would find something convenient for you (september is already half-season, thus no problems for a room). all sorroundings are accessible by tram/bus/funicular/boat. my suggestions: half-day to cardada/cimetta by cableway (also visit the abbey of madonna del sasso); half-day by boat to the brissago-isles; half-day by tram to the centovalli-valley; half-day by bus to ascona (could also be a combination by boat while going to the brissago-isles). have a nice stay.
