I've finally got our itinerary down for our 10-11 days
Arrive Zurich 6:15 a.m. - get locker for luggage and spend the day in the city sightseeing and then travel to Lucerne for 3 nights, then Lauterbrunnen for 3 nights, Montreux for 2 nights and Zermatt for 2 nights. One more night, maybe, in Zurich before flying back to the US. We've managed to book some great spots with great reviews for a grand total of only a little over $1,000 US for the 10 nights. It took a great deal of time to look at many different lodging sites and options, check map locations and read reviews, but it paid off. We found the best deals on Booking.com and Air BnB and the one in Montreux on VRBO. One of our requirements is that we are not in a hotel for more than two nights. We only booked one hotel. The rest are apartments or rooming houses with either a kitchen or access to refrigerator, etc.
Thank you all for your suggestions.
