Great house!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time at Haus Steinalder and in Obertraun. The bedrooms and bathrooms were wonderful and although the kitchen has not been updated it was both functional and comfortable - we spent a lot of time around the kitchen table. Having bikes was great too. My husband and I traveled with our young daughters and my mother and we were all comfortable and happy. The area has so much to offer - we could have added another week. We hope to come back some day!

lovely area

  • 4 of 5

Haus Steinadler is in a lovely area with lots to see and do. We had a great holiday here. The house is huge, with fab bedrooms and bathrooms, but the renovations didn't extend to the kitchen and living areas. The kitchen is dated and dining area is a kitchen table which seats about 6. The living area does not have enough chairs for more than 6, so not enough for the number of guests. We coped with bringing in some garden chairs. It didn't really matter, but was expecting better. As we were here for 2 weeks we expected a change of bedlinen, but couldn't find any so had to wash the sheets etc ourselves. With a few improvements this could be so much nicer.

Owner's Response: The living rooms and kitchens have been maintained in traditional Austrian style with solid oak furniture in the main house crafted by two of the leading furniture makers in the Salkammergut. Both kitchens have all the latest cooking equipment and the main kitchen table seats eight. It can easily be extended by adding an extension table and bringing in extra chairs from other rooms. In fact there is seating throughout the house for 68 and table space for 74, so plenty of choice, and enabling inside, balcony and garden dining. Balcony and garden dining also give you gorgeous lake and mountain views. You can make up a further dining table for up to 10 by adding the balcony tables together. We have had dinner parties of up to 14 so far, inside and out. There are three changes of bedlinen per bed, both for the singles and the four poster beds. We use a professional laundry service which collects and delivers, but we do need to know when guests would like to use this service, or you can wash linen yourself if you prefer. For those wanting to see the local area, there are 11 bikes in the garage, with helmets, and a small fitness room upstairs if the weather turns for the worse. You can also use the sauna or steam shower to unwind and relax, watch a myriad of SAT TV channels or a DVD or listen to music, and children can use the large playhouse which will take up to eight children, or use the garden games. We also provide extensive summer and winter guides to what there is to see and do in the area, suggested walking routes, and a Haus Steinadler A to Z. Shopping can be arranged for your arrival and we can suggest routes to the house to enable you to make maximum use of your holiday time. All these elements have resulted in the house being given the maximum four edelweiss award. Viel spass!

Obertraun is situated in the heart of the Austrian Lake District, in a UNESCO world heritage site recognised for it's outstanding natural beauty, one of only seven in Austria. It sits on the southern shore of Lake Hallstatt, at the foot of the Krippenstein mountain and can truly offer something for everyone! If you are looking for outdoor activities, they are in abundance both in the summer and winter. From cycling to skiing, from rafting to rambling, one is never short of things to do (we can even help arrange specific activities with qualified instructors if you so wish). For those who prefer a more relaxing time, a gentle boat trip or a peaceful walk along the lake shore are always enjoyable as are visits to the spectacular Eishohle or Mammuthhohle caves and the local salt mines (steeped in history). There are tremendous views from the cafes up the funicular and the cable car. You could also simply allow yourself to enjoy the spectacular natural surroundings from the comfort of the spacious balcony or garden.

There are some beautiful towns nearby to visit too, such as Bad Ischl where the Emperor used to go on holiday, Bad Aussee, St Wolfgang, Altaussee, Salzburg and of course Hallstatt. You could go to the falconry dispaly at Werfen Castle, do archery in the fortress at Salzburg, go to a concert in the many places in Salzburg or even in the ice caves!

Summer Activities: Hiking, swimming, canyoning, caving, bowling, canoeing, boating, steamer trips, mountain railway, children's zoo, horse riding, go karting, white water rafting, birdwatching, paragliding, road cycling, mountain biking.

Golf: There are two courses nearby. One is just outside Bad Aussee on the way to the Sommerbergersee. It has the spectacular backdrop of the Loser mountain, and stunning views down the nearby valleys. The other is just north of Bad Ischl, set in a lush valley close to the Wolfgangsee. Both brilliant courses to play on in a unique and beautiful setting.

Send for a copy of our summer guide!

Ski: There are a number of skiing and snowboarding possibilities locally, with a total of 336km of runs in the region of all types. Krippenstein is the closest (3 mins by car or taxi, or free bus). The most well known route is the 11 km red route, one of the longest in Europe. You can stop and have a drink or lunch at Krippenbrunn. You can also go off piste in one of the largest freeride areas in Europe.

Intermediate skiers and beginners would be better off going to Dachstein West in Gosau (15 mins by car, taxi or free bus) or Russbach (20 mins). This area has 140 km of varied routes and types of skiing for beginners to advanced, with lots of cable cars and lifts, and a wide variety of places to eat. Ski schools are at Gosau and Russbach.

Loser (20 mins by car) is a great family resort with lots of variety. There are also possibilities for cross country skiing, ski touring, snow shoeing, floodlit tobogganning, ice skating, mushing, snow tubing, snow kiting, ski jumping, nude skiing. Ask for our winter guide.
