Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't thank you enough for making our stay at Maiglück so easy, warm, inviting and truly a wonderful experience. After a very grueling week working in Cannes, me and my co-workers needed to relax and Engelberg was the perfect place to do that. Your house is so comfortable and a truly relaxing experience. The cool mornings, surrounded by the mountains, the sound of the cow bells mixing with the ringing of the church bells in the fresh crisp air,the smell of clover and cut grass all work to create one of the most beautiful atmospheres I have ever seen.

I cooked up some wonderful meals, we went to the truly wonderful spa at the hotel Waldegg and spent hours looking at the majestic mountains and green, lush meadows.

The 3 of us have traveled all over the world, but we all agree that Switzerland and our stay in Engelberg was one of the best experiences ever.

I look forward to coming back as this has been a trip that touched our heart and soul. Thank you! Your friends from New York

A Swiss delight!

  • 5 of 5

Maigluck is a fabulous place to stay. We came across this property on the internet and found the booking process very simple and the owners to be extremely helpful. The accommodation is clean, spacious, well equipped and well laid out. We had four adults and two children in our party and everyone enjoyed themselves. The centre of Engelberg is a lovely 10 minute walk away and has all the amenities you require. Both the local swimming pool and the Eienwaldli were fantastic. We would especially recommend taking the cable car to Titlus, 4 meters of snow, fantastic, and the train journey to Lucern is not to be missed! We had an exceptional meal at the Schweizerhaus restaurant one evening and it was only a couple of minutes walk away. We would happily recommend this chalet and hope to return ourselves very soon.

Excellent accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

All I could say is that it was a one-of-a-kind experience. I was glad that I chose this property because we were very satsified by it. The host was so accommodating and warm. The house was clean, spacious and we feel very comfortable. Everything that we need was already provided.

Outstanding home!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful. It is well-located and well-equipped. Monica was very accommodating and helpful. Our only minor criticism is that, oddly, the second floor bathroom has a shower but no toilet. So a bit of a drag if nature calls in the middle of the night.

Owner's Response: Traditionally many Swiss Chalets in Ski Resorts, invariably have smaller cosy rooms to ensure warmth and comfort for the guests. In particular when Maigluck was built, it was suggested that an extra bedroom dedicated for children, would be more beneficial than a larger bathroom on the upper floor, especially as there is a family bathroom (with WC) on the middle floor, plus a shower room (with WC) on the ground floor which services the 2 double bedrooms located there. Looking forward to have you back in Maigluck another time!

Highly reccomended

  • 5 of 5

We came for a week vacation in December.

When we got there, the house was ready early and we were able to come right in after our long journey.

The chalet was beautiful and spacious, and had everything we needed, even toys for the children.

We were 8 people and didn’t feel crowded at all. The home was very clean, and the beds were comfortable. our vacation was perfect and I don’t have one bad thing to say about this property.

the location was good, only 10 minute walk to the ski area at brunni.

The owner was extremely accommodating and easy to work with.

Thank you for letting us rent from you, and I highly recommend your home!

Pleasant stay

  • 4 of 5

My husband,myself and 4 teenage children stayed at Maigluck for 4 nights in December. The house is comfortable but compact with comfortable beds and lounge/dining furniture. The kitchen is new with good quality appliances. The owner was very helpful and welcoming. The position is great, close to a free ski bus stop and the beginners ski area. The views are spectacular.

We felt the main downside to the property were the showers, particularly on the middle level where there was very poor lighting above the shower. The shower curtains were annoying as they kept flapping against you. An extra light fitting in this bathroom and glass shower screens would be great improvements. Also a few extra pillows and blankets as well as small things such as better quality towels, matching glass ware, unchipped coffee mugs and sharp chopping knifes in the kitchen would give the property the luxurious feel it deserves.

Overall it is a good property in a great location but a few improvements are needed to make it even better.

Owner's Response: We are absolutely delighted you enjoyed your stay at Maigluck as we continually strive to make your holiday a memorable occasion. We also really appreciate your valued comments which enable us to constantly improve wherever possible. I regret you were unable to find the extra pillows which we keep stored in the wardrobe of each bedroom, and I only wish we’d had the opportunity to point these out to you during your stay, to ensure you have everything you need. Inevitably during peak season we are fully booked with some guests departing late and others arriving early, which leaves very little time to inspect the house in every detail, so my sincere apologies if you found any kitchen equipment that was less than your liking. As in the case above we would always ask our guests to let us know immediately they are not satisfied, so we have the opportunity to address and rectify any issues that they may have, to ensure they have everything they need. Many thanks again for your valued custom and we very much hope to welcome you back to Maigluck another time!

Mountain View

Good family home - Stunning mountain views

  • 4 of 5

The highlight and main reason to book this cabin are the spectacular and majestic mountain views. The house is situated on a road outside of the main village center (Major grocers, bakery, butcher, most restaurants, retailers approx 20-25 minutes via a slow hike in the hills). A restaurant is down the road, while another small hotel/tavern is at the corner of the street entrance. Given the valley location on a open field neighboring the back, the view is unobstructed with a full view of the impressive mountain range. While modest from the outside the interior of the house, although a bit worn, is a clean, fully-functional, multi-level family-home with a cozy living area, dining room, kitchen/breakfast nook with stove, fridge, oven, microwave, kettle, coffee maker (drip and expresso machine), utensils, cutlery. The top floor includes a generous sized room with work-stations available if needed during your holiday. The shower-room on this level does not include a toilet so guests on this top floor need to go downstairs, which could be inconvenient during the night. During our stay, there was a damp smell, especially on the bottom floor & bathrooms. (This lessened with open windows and am told only happens during the Summer months.) Overall, the home was comfortable. Fantastic WiFi, appliances worked great, water pressure/hot water was plentiful and worth noting digital cable is available including several English-language channels and a variety of stations across nationalities. The sectional sofa/2 love seats in the living room allowed plenty of space to relax, while the dining area was prefect to enjoy home-cooked meals. Monica was an absolute pleasure, as she kindly greeted us at the station, stopped at the bakery for us, and dropped us off at the house. On our departure day, they returned to drive us back to the station for the easy 5-min commute.We all left with lovely memories and agreed the house was the perfect base to enjoy the summer holiday.
