Haus Hepi
Ranked #2 of 11 Obertraun B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 28, 2013

My husband and I stayed here during July 2013. Our primary destination was Halstatt, but everything there was booked up so we looked at nearby Obertraun. We both loved the accommodations as well as the town itself and would recommend it to anyone wanting to see the area.

The views from the balcony were unbelievable. We dined outside for our arrival dinner and were treated to amazingly delicious food at a reasonable price. The hospitality was solid; when we asked about hiking recommendations, we were provided with a map and some tips on where to go.

From Obertraun, Halstatt is a quick boat ride across the lake; after visiting Halstatt, we walked back to Obertraun. So it is walkable if you want to save some money and have a little time to kill. The walk definitely took some time, so it would be for people who are fit and without young children.

We loved the location, the room, and everything about the experience. Definitely a recommendation!

We had the great fortune of staying at Haus Hepi for two nights and can't wait to go back and spend a week there next time. Larry and Lisa were fantastic hosts and made our stay very enjoyable. They know so much about the area as their extremely active themselves. We experienced car trouble and the rental agency sent someone to repair it. Not knowing how to speak any German myself, Larry came to the rescue and gave perfect directions. The Haus is an excellent choice for using as a base. Many guests were staying for a week and we could see why. There's so much to do in the area and they gave us some great tips. It's only a short ride to Hallstatt which is a must place to visit.

This is similar to an earlier review, We knew from previous reviews that we were going to have a great stay at Haus Hepi but even with these high expectations we had an exceptional week with Larry and Lisa. Everything from our rooms, food, Larry and Lisa perfect hosts, and fantastic views. Not forgetting other guests who we had a great fun with as well. Also Obertraun, a perfect base for walks, cycling, the lake, and visiting the many other lovely places in the vicinity. We have to go back and try a winter visit next time. Thank you Larry and Lisa for the exceptional week's holiday we had with you.

My wife and I stayed with Larry & Lisa at Haus Hepi for 7 nights in August; our stay was relaxing, comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable.

Larry & Lisa are the perfect hosts, welcoming, hospitable & knowledgeable without being in any way intrusive. They have tons of useful advice and recommendations on where to visit, how to get there and little tips and tricks only locals can advise. And all their advice is based on real knowledge & experience, not on tourist brochures.

The room was comfortable with its own balcony and a different view each day as the weather in the mountains changed, and the location was just perfect, quiet but not isolated, handy for local restaurants and as a base to tour the area.

The room and en-suite bathroom were very clean, tidy & well furnished and it was a real pleasure to come back at the end of each day.

The area around Obertraun & Hallstatt is spectacular, with lots to see, great places to eat, and with Larry & Lisa’s help we were able to get the very best from our holiday.

Altogether a wonderful holiday experience, highly recommended. A great place to stay, and we can’t wait to go back.

Everything about doing a biking or hiking trip with "Bike and Hike", Austria is excellent. The accommodation is good, the hosts friendly and hospitable, the chef Larry, superb, the scenery and places to visit, lovely. If you're not into biking and hiking, then Haus Hepi would be an excellent base for this area if you don't want the hussle of Hallstatt.

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.
