Hi Zass -
<<" The elevator looks cool, too. ">>
It is about a 1 1/4 km walk from the funicular terminal. About a 30 minute walk because you'll probably want to pause for a look or two along the way. Less if you are athletic and move fast. The climb is about 100 meters altitude change from the funicular station.

<<"Yes, I will have to check the boat schedule from Alpnachstad to Bürgenstock to Lucern.">>
It seems that we may not have linked you to the timetable:
Useful tips on the page.
In case the boat schedule does not work for you, you can return to Luzern by bus + train. The timetable will show you options.
There is bus service from Bürgenstock to Stanstad at xx50 until late in the evening, in case the lake boat schedule does not work for you. It connects with the train to Luzern. Takes 47 minutes. Funicular plus lake boat takes 45 minutes.
For that matter, after you come down from Pilatus, you can take a train from Alpnachstad to Stanstad through Hergiswil , with frequent service in the early afternoon and less frequent in the evening, in case the boat schedule from Alpnachstad doesn't work for you, or the funicular is too expensive. I6 minute connection from Alpnachstad train station to Stansatd, via Hergiswil. Then, bus from Stanstad to Bürgenstock Resort
I'm sure that the much cheaper bus is the way that the staff get to and from, unless they have some special arrangement with the lake boats.
