Lenkerhof, Switzerland

Averill's Flathead Lake Lodge, Montana USA

“Mummy and Daddy, you told us we wouldn’t see the sea this holiday? Well, that sure looks like a sea to us!”, our daughters exclaim once they stand on the shore of Flathead Lake. The lake can indeed be called impressive, but it is the assortment of log houses surrounding us on the lakeshore that completely takes our breath away: Averill’s Flathead Lake Lodge. Read more...

Going through the large white door of Luna2 studiotel, it feels like we are entering a spaceship. Well, a spaceship that has landed here in the 1960’s.
