I believe my mother and father found this gem back in the late 70s/early 80s. I believe they returned every year since there at least once. Whether it was for a summer vacation or the Schlachfest in October. I now take my mother there every year for Schlachfest and we have booked 2011 already.
As I have seen from the other reviews here they pretty much cover the old world charm this House has to offer. All their meals are excellent! For Schlachfest weekend your price includes ALL meals and are pretty much all you can eat. You won't go away hungry that is for sure!
As far as cellphone coverage goes, yes you will have to head for the nearest mountain top which isn't that far away. But you could be reached if there is an emergency as all you have to do is give them the main house phone number and anyone of the staff will get you asap.
You can't go wrong staying here if you want to get away for a few days or weeks with all the fresh air, old world charm and the best owners and staff I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.
