I was worried about our trip due to the recent negative reviews regarding the owner, Bob. After staying at OPUS hut, I've realized that either 1) Bob read the reviews and is trying to be a better host, or 2) the negative reviews were written by people who didn't follow the rules. I guess if you leave your slippers in... More

I have read couple of the last reviews and this seems to be the reputation that this hut is getting on this website and by word of mouth. We have been to this hut twice now and have had a wonderful time. The terrain at this hut is unreal and is so gorgeous!!! Anywhere you look is wonderful and there... More

Let me start with the good (and there is a lot of good) by saying that I have stayed in this hut two years in a row with a group of friends. We are professionals in our 30's, 40's and 50's - so we are respectful, clean and frankly in bed by 9pm (this is important info - stay tuned).... More

We (four families, all friends) rented the whole place for a weekend. In advance we let him know that between us there would be 5 kids between the ages of 1-3. Right there, Bob should have told us not to come. Instead, we booked and he started in on negative comments about the kids or our parenting right when we... More

We visited Opus Hut in mid-August for one magical day and night. Bob, the owner and builder ( that's an amazing story in itself!) gave us a warm welcome when we arrived midday, and provided a perfect balance between being informative and friendly, yet providing us ample private time to enjoy the property and each other's company. He offered us... More

Initially came to do a bit of high country mt biking, but I knew ahead of time that good riding would be hard to come by there. Once we settled in, there was plenty of hiking opportunities though! It is a truly fascinating place in how it lives on its own up at 11,000+ feet...completely off the grid but very... More

Opus Hut is as near to paradise as you can get. At nearly 12000 ft and totally private with absolutely stunning back country scenery, hiking and skiing literally on the doorstep, the European style accommodation lends itself to the ultimate get away with as much peace and tranquility as you could ask for combined with the sort of comradeship that...

My family and I took our second month-long road trip around the West this summer, and the Opus Hut was definitely one of the most memorable and unique experiences we had (our first time staying in a hut), out of both trips. We're hikers, backpackers, and campers, and now with our new baby (seven months old), adventure seems hard to... More

So, if you are a person who has stayed in a lot in huts, and yurts, you will love it, you don't need to read any further. Buy the meal plan. If you are like me, you have hiked, camped etc, but haven't stayed in a hut...read on. I booked the hut a few months ago, after reading about it... More

If you purchase the meal plan you will not go hungry. Bob is a great cook, impressing my wife with his Gluten free home made cooking. The facilities are better than any other huts I have been to, spacious with a sauna. I made a couple of mistakes, I can use my cross country gear at the tenth mountain huts... More
