Good experience. Great food. Great location and hiking straight from hut. Nice that we were able to have our dogs with us. Bob has a dog that is stays there too, although He was a bit territorial. Enjoyed our stay.

This was by far the best Hut trip I've ever been on. All 15 of us were well accommodated and fed amazing meals by Bob , Fiona, and Chris. The terrain is unreal with great views and skiing options on all aspects. I definitely plan to come back next year.

How Bob managed to build such a super hotel (hut) near the top of a mountain pass is beyond imagining. Not only a lovely (did I say large) building, but complete with perhaps the nicest sauna anyone has ever seen this side of Finland Cant say enough about this jewel of a property and the love and care that goes...

This is a bit of a chalet/hut hybrid IMO, definitely more chalet in amenities, all its principle operations and features made especially remarkable by the knowledge that it was all, as I understand it, contrived and constructed by hut proprietor Bob. Our only prior experience being Andean huts, we were pleasantly confused when ushered up to the dining area and... More

This Charming little hut was our home away from home for one night. The views were incredible. You can tell a lot of love and thought has been put in to the design and construction. Every window had a picture perfect view. Bob was a knowledgeable host with an extensive range of information about the area and hiking. He is... More

We visited the Opus Hut in late June with snow still on the ground. Our experience was true to the European alpine mountain hut tradition that provides shelter and amenities for hikers so that they do not have to pack in. Those seeking a luxury hotel experience, or traveling with children who might not appreciate the alpine hikers' quest should... More

My husband, 11-year-old daughter and I had the hut to ourselves and just can't say enough good things about what a wonderful time we had. We completely unplugged and enjoyed our surroundings. Our dog Gabby had a great time as well, hiking with us and playing with the hut-keepers' dogs. We spent two nights and enjoyed every single meal, which... More

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
