Need hotel recommendation near Appenzell, Switzerland

We (my husband, 4 year old son, and 9 year old daughter) will be traveling to Switzerland in June for my brother-in-laws wedding (first time there for us). We have a few days to travel and enjoy before arrving in Bellinzona for the wedding. I have put together an itinerary for us, but the hotel I wanted to stay at in Appenzell (Haus Lydia) is full, so I'm looking for any other recommendations in the area.

Also if you have any recommendations or resaurants (with 2 kids) please let me know!

Sunday:

  • Arrive in Zurich (flight from US lands at 9am)

  • Drive to Appenzell to see a cheese factory (Appenzeller Schaukaserei in Stein is open on Sunday according to their webpage)

  • Stay at around Appenzell - wanted to stay at Haus Lydia (based on reviews fromt this site), but it is full - so this is what I need help with :)

Monday:

  • Visit Schoggi Land chocolate factory in Flawil

  • Drive to Hohenschwangau and stay at Alpenhotel Meier (based on reviews from this site)

Tuesday:

  • Visit Neuschwanstein Castle

  • Drive through Liechtenstein and visit the postage stamp musem

  • Arrive in Bellizona

Thanks so much for your help!
