Gerhard and his staff do such a great job of making you feel welcome. Home cooked meals, friendly company, an awesome movie room and a games room. The games room has an awesome sound system, darts, pool table and complete sound proofing. So you can keep going for as long as you want. Or you can have a campfire along... More

I can not speak highly enough of this place. Gerard is such a great guy.. Friendly, informative and unbelievably kind. It's like a home away from home, cosy, clean, warm and friendly. The meals cooked each night were the best I have had in years and the breakfast is fantastic! The service from all the staff is top notch, the... More

What can I say... I love the Treehouse! Friends and I have been coming back here for seven years now. Gerhard is a legend, the place is beautiful and you can't ski/board decent slopes for cheaper in Europe. Gerhard has recently been doing a lot of work on the place so is looking top-notch again. Dinners are always good, as... More

This place was incredible and I can't recommend it highly enough. Gerhard is accommodating and lovely - he drove me to the train station at 6am!! The house is beautiful and looks like something out of a postcard. The house is only 5 minutes walk from the lifts at the Kasberg, which is by far the cheapest skiing I've ever... More

I think I have probably visited The Treehouse on around around ten to twelve occasions, my first visit being in 2003. I am a reasonably well-travelled person having lived and studied abroad and travelled fairly extensively worldwide. I can sincerely state that The Treehouse in Grunau is like no other place I have ever stayed and is an amazing little... More

There is something about this cozy hostel that reminds you of home, no matter how far you are from your own one. Such a welcoming place, with amazing people. It is so personal here and you can really tell the staff care and go above and beyond their job to make sure your stay is the best it can be.... More

I can even begin to explain the magical time we spent at Gehards treehouse. The hospitality was spectacular, Gerhard dropped us off at the activities we done which involved horse riding, archery and if u wanted a ride into the town. The food they provided was so delicious we even got a home made roast. I felt like I was... More

This hostel is amazing, set in the idyllic Austrian countryside. The water that runs through Gerhard's back garden is so fresh you can drink straight from it. Great place to wind down and chill but lots of activities to do too; Gerhard can organise horse riding, archery, hiking & bike riding. I recommend biking to the lake, a good 42k... More

The surroundings are really lovely and the food at the Treehouse is fantastic. The rooms were pleasant but the bathroom/toilet was a bit dingy. It would've been nice if the place was a bit cleaner but it wasn't terrible. I came across a room next to the kitchen that smelled awful but it was alright as long as I avoided... More

I cant say one bad thing about this place, Gerhard is GREAT. He is so helpful and makes it feel like your own home. He cooks and he is always smiling. We only booked two days here but could have easily stayed 2 weeks. If you do stay here, PLEASE walk to the waterfall and bike to the lake(if you... More
