Beautiful almost 300 years old wooden cottage in heart of Switzerland at last plateau before Engelberg - mecca for freeriders.With unique familiar atmosphere which you can't find in hotels. Ideal for active holidays. You will be surrounded by nature.
Last plateau before Engelberg 800 m above sea level. When you wake up you can be within 10 minutes at the Ski station and after other 15 minutes on Titlis - 3020 m above sea level. In winter season freeriders from whole Europe come here. But there you can find much more activities than freeride - paragliding, via ferrata, mountainbiking, walking in mountains, sunbathing at beautiful clear mountain lakes, scuba diving...
The price 35 CHF is per person per night.
We have 4 rooms for guests - one with 6 beds, one with 5 beds and two with 3 beds. There are also 2 newly renovated bathrooms, 2 toilets, pantry, newly renovated kitchen and two livingrooms.
If you want to rent whole house it costs 450 CHF per night. Otherwise, it's highly possible that there will be more guests in house.
Even if in the calendar it looks the house to be full, you may write me since we might still have some availability. Because even with only one person's reservation, at the Airbnb calendar it appears full house booked.
In Klondike you have free wifi. In livingrooms are TV, in bigger livingroom is also Apple TV so you can play anything from your Iphone or Ipad. Use of washing machine only after permission. Kitchen is full equipped - electric water boiler, microwave oven, dishwashing machine, toaster, induction hob, coffeemaker...
At the pantry there are boxes for your food and two fridges with freezers.
Interaction with Guests
If you need anything I'm living here so I can help you anytime.
There are many beautiful places in neighborhood - e.g. Titlis, End der Welt, Engelberg Käserei, Brunni, Luzern, Pilatus, Rigi, Stanserhorn...
Own car is highly recommended!! Klondike is right between two train stations, Grafenort and Engelberg. It's circa 5 km through the forest. Furthermore, you might can use taxi service to Grafenort or Engelberg and from there make your trips into neighbourhood by train.
TIP: You can buy tellpass and make your trips much cheaper.

Thomas was a perfect host, friendly, nice, just awesome company
The house is terrific!!! Very beautiful
Great place to stay close to Engelberg. We were 3 families with teenagers and kids, total of 15 people, so we occupied the whole house! It was perfect for us with a well eqiped kitchen and good bedrooms. A very special old house! Thomas was a very friendly and good host, and really made us feel like at home! Good skiing in Engelberg with lovely sunny weather! I can really recommend this place for anyone, and specially for big groups with a lot of kids!!
Our stay in Berghaus Klondike was simply fantastic. The house itself has its own character and Thomas was friendly and helpful with all the information we needed. Location is away from the city that makes it a perfect vacation to enjoy Switzerland....I would definitely stay there and strongly recommend to anyone who wants a vacation at beautiful Switzerland.....thanks Thomas for being a wonderful host......
Thomas's place has a special feel of warmth and welcoming atmosphere sited in a beautiful area surrounded by mountains views and a river with a hiking trail
Thomas ist ein grossartiger, positiver und unkomplizierter Gastgeber. Klondike ist ein tolles Haus. Die Bäder sind besonders geschmackvoll gestaltet und die Küchenausstattung lässt keine Wünsche offen (von Jura-Kaffeautomat über Gartenkräuter bis Entsafter...). Das Haus liegt direkt an Mountainbike-/Wandertrails Richtung Engelberg. Da wir wie die Murmeltiere geschlafen haben (13 Stunden!!), die Einsamkeit und Stille der Berge zuvor bereits ausgiebig genossen hatten, und ansonsten rundum zufrieden waren, konnten wir das Summen des Wasserkraftwerks vor der Tür erfolgreich ausblenden. Merci Thomas! (NUR wegen des Wasserwerks fehlt der 5. Stern.)
Super freundlicher Host, bei dem man sich sofort wohlfühlt. Schöne Lage inmitten der Natur, schöner Fussweg nach Engelberg. Jederzeit wieder!
We had a great time at Berghaus Klondike and would recommend it wholeheartedly! The rooms are spacious and clean & the house has a nice authentic atmosphere + a lovely cat. Thomas is very friendly and helpful, he helped us decide on best options for hiking and made us feel like at home!
