“Welcoming Accomodations in Lake Hallstatt!”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Everything about our stay with Larry and Lisa at Haus Hepi was perfect. A warm welcome, spotless facilities, expert advice, a great location, and wonderful dinners made it a memorable vacation. Larry had answers to all our questions and his suggestion to visit Goausee was spot on! The plentiful breakfasts were a great start to each day after a wonderful nights sleep on the most comfortable beds ever. Be sure to try the Koppenrast restaurant in Obertraun for an amazing and affordable meal when Larry's not cooking. Truly two of the most welcoming and pleasant hosts we've encountered during our extensive travels throughout Europe. Not to be missed!

I was looking for a cycling holiday for me and my 2 teenage sons and came across House Hepi during my search on the internet. Lisa was very good at dealing with my various enquiries. When my son and I arrived after cycling from Ebensee we found a charming house in a great location. We had great food every night to refuel us after cycling, hiking, lake swimming or all three! We also enjoyed sitting on the terrace playing cards and looking at the moon rising over the Five Fingers. Thank you for a lovely break.

We decided to explore Austrian Alps in June and were very lucky to find Larry and Lisa friendly,comfortable house with warm hospitality (believe or not you really feel like home after long hiking day!) and very professional every day guiding advices. Every dinner (made by Larry) were nice gourmet surprise, with good wine and interesting evening after dinner conversation. Larry and Lisa and all guests were sharing jokes, stories, personal experience, which make our stay in Haus Hapi even more unique and unforgettable. Me and my husband like hiking and travel a lot, but, to tell the truth, we rare had experience of combination of real hiking and luxury end of a day. Our friends, who like easy walking/hiking, had a lot of different options to explore the area, so all of us were very happy. Reasonable price make it even better!

It was our third visit in Obertraun and at Haus Hapi (from 9th of July for 8 nights).
Our dear hosts Lisa and Larry helped us to find new paths, new lakes and new interesting sights.
Thanks for all.
It looks like this place has special charm and attraction for us.
But that we will find out in the next visit.

Staying at Haus Hepi is like staying at your uncle and aunt's place: you feel very much at home. Owners are very welcoming and there is a separate guests' lounge.
The coffee in the morning could be better.

I hope your aunt takes good care of her guests and has wonderful mountain views from her bedrooms.
Sorry to hear you were not keen on the coffee. If only you had mentioned it while you were staying here I could have offered you a different type. I will make a note for your next visit.

You are sure to receive a very warm welcome at Haus Hepi, a very well set up B&B, Bike/Hike guesthouse in Obertraun. They offer a unique experience if you are lucky enough to book with them and their expert advice on the attractions of their region was brilliant.

It feels so much more like a relaxing holiday when you are in Larry and Lisa's capable hands.

Larry and Lisa are trained hoteliers and their execution after 8+ years at Haus Hepi testifies to their training, dedication and love of their product. Additionally Larry is a trained chef which makes the food an uncommon treat and value in such a setting. Their local knowledge of what to do and see is excellent developed by assiduous personal reconnoitering of places near and far.

Their location is truly within easy walking distance of many fine hikes and experiences - not the case with all such places.

Dinner al fresco with mountain views was an added treat. We met other interesting guests over the free-flowing Austrian wine served each night.

The short walk to Obertraun Lake with a beer/wine and dip from the dock of the local hotel was another plus as was the recommendation one night to eat at the Koppenrast Restaurant which featured true, first -class, local food.

We highly recommend the long (3 hour) Dachstein Walk and the Gosau See walk.
