This small, cozy apartment is located in an old Appenzell house just outside Herisau. Round-framed meadows, forest, and sky in between a walker, a biker, a tractor, a fox, a deer ... what one meets so in the country.

Diese kleine, gemütliche Wohnung liegt in einem alten Appenzellerhaus etwas abseits von Herisau. Rundherum Wiesen, Wald, und Himmel dazwischen ein Spaziergänger, ein Biker, ein Traktor, ein Fuchs, ein Reh... was man halt so trifft auf dem Lande.

The space

When the snow falls or rains, the tiled stove warms you. Seems the sun you find around the house quiet seats for - idleness! The apartment is ideal for a few days to retreat and yet you are close to everything. It has its own entrance, a simple kitchen (two-burner stove, no oven), a living room with sofa, double bed (140x190) and sofa (sofa bed 80x200), bathroom and separate toilet. If you lie in the bathtub you look directly into the (stars) sky. Even if you are in the city of St. Gallen (business, trade fair, visit) or on the transit, the apartment is ideal. 10 minutes from the motorway or 15 minutes from St.Gallen and you already have a little holiday.

Interaction with guests

In the apartment it has everything you need, something is missing, I help you gladly, I live next door. Otherwise according to your mood!

In der Wohnung hat es alles was du brauchst, fehlt etwas, helfe ich dir gerne aus, ich wohne gleich nebenan. Ansonsten ganz nach deiner Lust und Laune!

Other things to note

The rooms are low (about 190cm) also the bed is a bit shorter (140x190cm), typical for Appenzell. The apartment is heated by a tiled stove. In the winter the tiled stove is warm on your arrival, you can then continue to fire (wood is parat), it also has an electric oven. Heating with a tiled stove takes some time and patience, when you are traveling from spring to evening, it is not so ideal.

Die Räume sind niedrig (ca. 190cm) auch das Bett ist etwas kürzer (140x190cm), typisch fürs Appenzell.

Die Wohnung wird mit einem Kachelofen geheizt. Im Winter ist der Kachelofen bei deiner Ankunft warm, du kannst dann selber weiter einfeuern (Holz ist parat) es hat zusätzlich auch ein Elektroöfeli. Das Heizen mit einem Kachelofen braucht etwas Zeit und Geduld, wenn du von Frühmorgens bis am Abend unterwegs bist, ist es nicht so ideal.

Our stay at Renate's place was just wonderful. The place is great located, in a beautiful old house, perfectly clean and very nicely decorated with many lovely details (even nicer than on pictures), so you can just enjoy the environnement and relax. But overall, Renate is the most adorable and careful host we met. She was full of little attentions, that we didn't even expect, so we felt in a little paradise. Thank you so much Renate, we are looking forward to come back!

Renates house/apartment on Stierweid is just perfect!! The location is really amazing, you're surrounded with nature and views, you dreamt of thinking of staying in Switzerland. Everyday, I took my breakfast in the garden and had the most amazing views! The interior of the apartment is so tasteful, you feel immediately at home! Also it's very very clean! When you open the fridge, you'll find all kinds of little snacks and drinks, which made me feel very welcome!! She really thought of everything, you will discover every day new things which make your stay very enjoyable, like umbrellas, slippers, a marzipan cookie on your pillow,.... If I decide to go back to Herisau, St-Gallen, I will not doubt a second, and hope to stay again in this little piece of heaven!! Thanks!

We would highly recommend staying at Renate's very charming place. It is great for resting, but also near St. Gallen, Liechtenstein and other places for easy side trips. The place itself is on the fringes of the town, with cows and sheep grazing nearby. You can see hills and trees from the windows and we even saw a couple of deer in the distance. Everything is very tastefully done, bedding very comfortable and the bathrooms newly renovated. Renate has thought of every detail. She put a fresh garden flowers and herbs in small vases for us and she left several delicious items in the fridge, so we could have a little something for breakfast and to munch on. No wonder she is a Superhost!

We had a perfect stay at Renate's farm. We enjoyed a lot of kind attentions from our host such as fine local products to eat, fresh fruits, wildflowers, lot of guides and books, nice decoration… The place is quiet and surrounds by fields, very peacefully, perfect for our small dog and young baby (so unfrequent to accept these "special populations" on Airbnb, thank you again Renate). The apartment has all amenity you need (kitchen, bathroom) in very good condition. Herisau is ideally located to visit points of interest from Lake Constance, Appenzell or Ebenalp for instance. There is several hikes from Herisau. So if you want a 100% Swiss experience in Appenzellerland, don't hesitate a minute! Thanks again, hope to come again soon!!

Renate has one of the most charming air bnb apartments I have stayed in ! The apartment has many personal touches and everything one should need during their stay, including Appenzell cheese in the fridge. Renata is a great host and came to pick up us up from the train station, as we arrived late at night. The apartment located in farmland and is a super relaxing place to stay. I highly recommend to stay at her place.

Renate was lovely and very flexible about check in times on the day that I arrived. She had filled the fridge with lovely food and drink, which was a wonderful welcome. The apartment is gorgeous, part of a lovely farmhouse that feels remote in the countryside, but is actually only a short drive from Herisau.
