Having a room with a balcony overlooking Lake Geneva is definitely a must. The location is perfect; very convenient to have the boat dock and info center right across the street. The Yvan and Gregorie, the two brothers who own this generational family-owned hotel, are so very hospitable; they make you feel like you are a visitor in their home. Yvan loves the US and talking with his guests; he even brought us glasses of a local rose wine and chips. We so enjoyed talking with him and hearing about history of this area. This is a charming, old building right on Grand Rue--what more could you ask for at this reasonable price. No air conditioning; there is a fan and nights were cool enough that we didn't need to have the windows open. Nice big shower with led-color lights--sure didn't expect this! Continental breakfast buffet; they cook whatever eggs, etc. you would like. Gregorie is the head chef, and we enjoyed talking with him the evening we had a delicious lake perch dinner. When we arrived, Dave was at the desk and was so helpful with maps, half-price passes, etc.
(TIP: Directions from train station to hotel: As you exit the train station, cross the street, turn left, go about one block (50 meters) to escalator going down to Grand Rue, the street along the lake; turn left, go half block to the hotel.)

Anyway, lots of experiences in just 5 days, and then we took the train up into Germany! ...
... In the picture we took in the aging cellar, you can see the robot at the far end of the rows of cheese, the little yellow light showing that it's in action.
We took a drive through the countryside to the town of Fribourg, walked around there a bit and returned to our B&B to relax before dinner, which was at a small restaurant next to a tiny chapel in a meadow. The lady who was the owner/chef went out to her garden to pick ...
... perfection (except for its out of place casino). The 2km promenade along the shore is a must with blooming gardens, sculptures and sights to see everywhere. Strongly recommend! A quick stop at the hotel where Barbara's art is exhibited then we headed back through town window shopping, mostly closed as it was 7pm after a long day. All we could manage was fried rice with shrimp from the Thai restaurant around the corner from us and an early night. Phew! This was definitely a day trip to ...
... her English and told me, "oh honey, Bern is boring. You will have much more fun in Lausanne. It's so pretty. *And* Bern is ugly." And this is how I ended up in Lausanne, a city which lies on Lake Geneva (I can't upload pictures at the moment, but definitely google pictures of the Lake and\or the city - it's gorrrrgeous here!).
That train lady wasn't lying - this city is amazingly beautiful. ...
