“The highlight of our Austrian vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2011

My husband and I just returned from a two week vacation in Austria, and we spent three nights with Larry and Lisa at Haus Hepi on a hike and bike tour. Larry and Lisa were wonderful hosts - we felt like part of the family. The bikes worked perfectly and they gave us suggestions for good rides. The area is beautiful with mountains, forests, clear lakes and rivers, and charming villages. Each day they packed a picnic lunch for us and we were treated to the best meals ever in the evening prepared by Larry. It was so relaxing at the end of the day not to have to go to a restaurant. We had a wonderful view of the mountains from our bedroom window. We wish we lived closer so we could cross-country ski there in the winter.

We stayed with Larry and Lisa for the 4th time, travelling independently from England. We have stayed at different times of the year, last time in the snow 18 months ago. This time the weather was great for walking, and sitting out on the terrace in the sun. Great fly-fishing in the river Traun but sadly no trout for dinner! Scenery fantastic. Brilliant views from the top of the Krippenstein, enjoying 3 cable car rides to the top. Most of all the welcome from Larry and Lisa, and their continuing attentiveness to ensure you get the most from your stay, is the real attraction. Their standards are as high as ever, nothing is ever too much trouble. Thanks again Larry and Lisa.

We have stayed in this guest house twice over the last couple of years. Larry and Lisa are the best hosts that you could hope for. Welcoming, friendly, helpful yet not intrusive. The location is absolutely superb. You can get a boat across the lake to Hallstatt or walk in about 45 mins if you prefer.. The train station is a five minute walk away and get you pretty much any where in Austria you need to go. The ice caves are close by and there are a lot of walks you can do if you are into hiking. You can also hire bikes and the hosts are happy to advise you on the best locations to visit. Larry is a chief so the diners are not only wonderful, but inexpensive. Locals still wear their national costumes on a daily basis so you feel like you have stepped back in time. Also, on a side note, the wine is good... and thats coming from an Australian who is used to good wine! I cant recommend this guest house highly enough. Are there any negatives? Yes, Its a long way from Australia otherwise we'd be there every year.

Larry and Lisa Hepi run a beautiful B&B at the foot of the Krippenstein Mountain in Obertraun. After a long journey, we were happy to be picked up by Larry at the station. Our room looked out over the valley towards the mountains and Hallstatt Lake. The room was very comfortable. The breakfast was more than enough including cereals, juice, eggs, cold meat and cheese. Supper was beautifully prepared and delicious - wonderful cheesecake for dessert. We found the location to be very convenient for hiking the local region. It was only a short walk to the Krippenstein Cable Car or to the lake and over to Hallstatt.

We stayed at Haus Hepi for 11 nights on a bike and hike package in June and were very comfortable. Lisa even provided tea and cake on arrival. Lisa and Larry were very accommodating and friendly hosts. Our room was comfortable and clean although not large. There is a spacious lounge for guests to use. Larry created a delicious meal each evening and desserts are definitely his speciality. The surrounding area has stunning scenery although we struck mixed weather and couldn't fully appreciate it all. Free wifi certainly makes life easy when you are travelling.

We stayed here for four days and everything was perfect. The rooms were clean, modern and comfortable. Lary and Lisa were perfect hosts and we felt we were staying with good friends. They thought of everything. And the suppers! Lary is a chef superb...better than anything in a five star hotel. This is the best place we stayed on our vacation! Well located within walking distance of everything. Highly recommended!

We stayed for four nights with our five month old son and felt completely at home from the moment we walked through the door. The rooms are fresh and very clean - we even had a flower-laden balcony with a couple of chairs to relax and take in the view. They had even set up a baby bed with bedding for us when we arrived. There was more than enough selection for breakfast and the dinners were exceptional. Each morning Larry or Lisa would enquire what our plans were for the day then help us by making recommendations, finding train schedules, giving directions, etc. We would recommend Haus Hepi to anyone without hesitation and will definitely be visiting again.
