“Beautiful”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We spent four beautiful days at the Gaestehaus Baeren in Gais. It is beautiful, clean and the service is exceptional. Breakfast, water and soft drinks were all included in the price. We also had a Neapresso coffee machine in the room. The owners went above and beyond to insure that we had a wonderful stay. We would highly recommend this establishment as a home base to visit the region.

I'm staying here for the second time with as much pleasure as the first one. Everything is just perfect. Clean is obvious... as you are in Switzerland! Confort is perfect with very comfortable beds (not to mention the wonderful cushions and bed covers), clean and spacious bathroom with wonderful shower and a gorgeous delicious breakfast. This is not the place for people who are used to travel and stay in Sheraton or Hilton or four season's but this is the perfect place for people travelling in authentic locations and who wants to enjoy a quite relaxing time. It is to me very emblematic of the "true Switzerland". There are beautiful trekking walks to make around. Try an escape to Bollenwees and the the Altman... really worth doing it!

We stayed only for a night in the suite but we would have loved to stay longer.
After a long hiking in the area, we were looking forward to arrive at the hotel. It was just very clean, warming, homely and perfectly furnished room with a typical & delicious sweet on the pillow to welcome us. The perfect mix of the Swiss culture with a modern touch.
The owners are lovely, always willing to help us. They gave us some recomendations for local restaurants and they reserved a table for us.
The breakfast was great varied with homemade cakes and appenzeller products.
We would definitely recommend and stay again!!

Initially I thought maybe I shouldn't stay here because I didn't have a car, but they were completely willing to pick me up at the train station which as it turns out is a 5-minute walk.. over a covered bridge. There are horses in the backyard, cows on the hillside, and endless trails to walk on right from the hotel. Appenzell is 10 minutes by train, but frankly, an afternoon in the town was plenty when there was so much country to enjoy. The guesthouse is immaculate and the guests couldn't have been more accommodating. It is also very easy to reach Santis from here. The tour books make it sound a little complicated, but it's not at all. All I can say is that this proved to be hospitality at its finest!

Room Tip: The rooms with a balcony are an ideal way to enjoy your morning coffee.

We stayed only one night here, but felt at home. The hosts were very attentive to our needs and the pension is decorated with very good taste, a mixture of tradition appenzeller style and modern. While it is aouside the town it is very quiet at night and one can sleep very restfully here.

We had a wonderful (one-night) stay at this recently renovated guest house. We were traveling with our young son & had some additional requests prior to arrival. Stephan was exceptionally helpful, generous & prompt in responding to our inquiries. The house and rooms are impeccable, cozy and lots of decor is traditional Swiss, most probably many pieces are family heirlooms. The furnishings are far nicer than anything we have in our own home! Stephan & Willy were very welcoming and warm, served a delicious breakfast, allowed our son to terrorize their dog, showed us the animals on the grounds, answered our questions and chatted with us about their lives and the plans for the guest house. We have lived in Switzerland for 5 years now and have stayed many places but these guys are certainly a cut above the rest. We have been recommending this place to all our friends in Zurich (only about an hour drive) & will certainly send any of our visitors their way.

At first, the location is not so attractive. But wait to come inside this old typical Appenzeller house and discover the hospitality of the Willi family !
The rooms are cosy, tastefully furnished with local craftsmanship and perfectly equipped. And above all, the Willi will do just everything to make your stay totally enjoyable : ready to give you very good hints for restaurants and authentic berghaus. You help yourself with drinks and tasty pies, fresh fruits, aso.
Not to mention an gorgeous breakfast !
Than you, Mrs and Mr Willi !
