Our visit and stay in the Kings Room was pleasing to all of the senses. Using our sense of sight we enjoyed taking in the history of the Alpenhorn Gausthaus, beginning with the bricks, large windows & beautiful bed. Our eyes drank in the beauty of the home as Kate gave us the tour.
Next with our sense of smell and taste, we enjoyed the scrumptious raspberry desserts and ports during our Chocolate & Wine Rendezvous in the candle lit cellar at 9 pm. We were accompanied by another couple staying at the Gausthaus and enjoyed the conversation with our evening.
In the morning Kate served us a Gourmet Full Service Breakfast in the Harvest Room. A thick sliced type of Frenchtoast topped with a fruit medley was accompanied by poached eggs and sausages. The champaigne Mimosa was a wonderful compliment to the meal.
The guest book in the nice quiet room was a treat, as it was a glimpse the lives of those who had stayed before us. I enjoyed adding my own personal experiences to the journal. I enjoyed reading the book of poetry as I relaxed in the comfortable chairs in my room and tasted the chocolates. The shower was refreshing and had great water pressure and plush towels. The flickering fireplace was romantic and a nice touch as well as the warm and cozy robes.
Our stay was enjoyable and romantic and peaceful.
