About Jerry and Els Smith

With our family we travel many times up and down to keep the houses in top shape for you and to offer it to you as we would wish if we rent something. After every winter and summer season, the entire chalet is thoroughly cleaned. Our family consists of two wonderful teenagers. Together with them we enjoy, between the companies, Austrian culture, delicious food Austrian flora and fauna and of course skiing. The diverse environment and pleasant mentality of the local population ensures that it is always nice to come home again. We warmly welcome you and make our home at home your home!

Jerry and Els Smith purchased this House in 2000

Why Jerry and Els Smith chose Fürth

Das Schmiedhaus has a rich history. The characteristic chalet radiates cosiness and warmth. In 2000 we stepped into the adventure with only a roof and wooden exterior walls without windows. In two years time the chalet has been built up by us with our own hands. The division could therefore be determined by ourselves. We wish no one a sofa bed. Therefore maybe cozy bedrooms, but everyone has one. Admit it, after a day of intensive activity, it's nice to have a good time with a book in bed, right? The location, centrally and on the southhang and also with snow loads easily accessible also contributed to the purchase. After 16 years the chalet has been thoroughly renovated in what it is today. We proudly present you the Schmiedhaus das. From mid-December to mid-April, Schmiedhaus is rented as a chalet. In the other seasons it is possible to book an apartment from 4 persons. We look forward to your visit and welcome to the Schmiedhaus!

What makes this House unique

What is the charm of das Schmiedhaus. The characteristic appearance, the location, the beautiful never-boring view of Kaprun, the Kitzsteinhorn with its eternal snow, the babbling brook, the cows that in the summer trudge through the village to the alpine pasture or back to the stable, when the sun shines you can almost always sit outside (lies in the lee), the peace but still close to all facilities, close to the different pistes, public transport (train and bus). In the house it is the atmosphere-defining wooden windows, the wooden beams in the living room, the cozy interior etc. The layout is very well thought out and the maximum comfort has been removed. Guests indicate that they feel at home as soon as they step inside. The chalet really embraces you as a warm jacket. Book and experience it yourself!

                                                              The house is very suitable for large groups of people,

                                                              the dining room is spacious and nice.

                                                              The kitchens are very well equipped and nicely organized.

                                                              The house is very warm and there is hot water for everyone.

                                                              There is ski room in the yard with heating for ski boots, very comfortable.

                                                              The ski bus is not faraway, around 3-4 min walk with the children, and ski bus is every 15 minutes in the morning and afternoon ( for both ski zones Kaprun and Zell am see )

                                                              One of big advantages of the house is the great number of rooms, they are not big, but there is a lot of rooms for everyone to be in his private space.

                                                              The other big advantage are the owners - very decent people. The communication is prompt and clear, plus the owners are always ready to cooperate you

                                                              in case of some question or issue.

                                                              Definitely would recommend the house to my friends.

                                                              Dear Blagoy,

                                                              Thank you that you have been our guest.

                                                              Best regards,

                                                              Family Smith

                                                              Size matters :D great for big families

                                                              Zeynep Y.istanbul

                                                              We enjoyed our stay in Schmiedhaus. It was a cosy house with many rooms. now that big rooms but cosy and cute. We were 8 adults with 2 kids. we were very comfortable. Cooked our meals with great pleasure and enjoyed eating them all together around the big dinner table. We traveled with cars and the transportation to the ski lifts was very easy

                                                              Perfecte plek voor een fijne vakantie!

                                                              Hein K.

                                                              Voor het tweede jaar op rij te gast geweest in das Schmiedhaus. Ook in 2018 weer het hele huis tot onze beschikking. De leefruimte boven is werkelijk subliem voor een gezelschap van 8 volwassenen en 3 kinderen.

                                                              Aan slaapplaatsen geen gebrek en elk stel volwassenen heeft op deze manier een eigen toilet en douche. De zolder hebben wij niet in gebruik.

                                                              Het huis ligt precies tussen de skigelegenheden van Zell am See en Kaprun. Een uitstapje naar de Panoramabahn in Mittelsill is ook zo gemaakt. Skimogelijkheden te over, dus.

                                                              Het huis heeft vier eigen parkeerplaatsen; wel zo prettig als je na een lange reis arriveert of na een heerlijke dag buiten de deur weer aankomt bij je stekje.

                                                              Beste heer Kuiper,

                                                              Hartelijk dank voor uw mooie review. Mijn man en ik vonden het erg leuk u en uw familie eens persoonlijk te ontmoeten.

                                                              Graag tot een volgende keer.

                                                              Een hartelijke groet,

                                                              Super Unterkunft für 4 Familien

                                                              Thomas C.

                                                              Sehr schönes Haus. Vor allem ausreichend Platz im Wohnzimmer des 1.OG um zusammen zu essen. Es fehlte an nichts. Die Schlafzimmer und Bäder sind sehr klein, aber absolut ausreichend für eine Urlaubswoche. Ein Schaumstoffschutz ganz oben am Holzbalken im 2. Stock wäre super. 2 Erwachsene haben sich da ganz schön den Kopf gestoßen.

                                                              Hallo Thomas,

                                                              Herzlichen Dank für Deine Bewertung. Es hat uns sehr gefreut euch persönlich begrüßen zu dürfen. Ich hoffe das es die beide wieder gut geht. In der Beschreibung steht das am Dachboden eine Stehhöhe in der Miete gibt von 1.74. Es ist ein altes Bauernhaus. Der Dachboden ist wunderschön, bequem und sehr gemütlich für Kinder. Alle freuen sich dort sehr! Alles zusammen, Innen und Außen, reflektiert den Charakter und die Charme des Chalets. Deswegen ist das Schmiedhaus sehr beliebt unter den Gästen.

                                                              Liebe Grüße,

                                                              Gezellige chalet voor kleine groep familie en/of vrienden

                                                              Patrick & Sylvie RivièreBUDEL-DORPLEIN NETHERLANDS

                                                              Wij hebben een fijne week gehad in het authentieke chalet, wat erg prettig was, was dat de kleine kinderen beneden konden slapen met hun ouders apart van de andere volwassenen, dit met betrekking tot geluidsoverlast. Alles netjes bij aankomst. De bedden zijn smal maar comfortabel genoeg om lekker te slapen. Helaas was er een miscommunicatie w.b. het linnengoed want wij kwamen zonder handdoeken aan...dachten dat deze waren inbegrepen bij het linnengoed. Maar even een belletje en het was geregeld. Uitzicht is zeer mooi en de paardjes voor de deur maken het compleet. Enige minpunt was dat we toch plek te kort kwamen aan de tafel...voor 10 volwassenen en 4 kleintjes was het net een beetje te krap. Verder alles prima geregeld en opgelost indien we vragen hadden of opmerkingen werd er snel gereageerd! Tip: Bakpannen zijn aan vervanging toe of neem je eigen bakpan mee. Wij hebben er zelf een aangeschaft tijdens ons verblijf. Kortom: een mooie plek, lekker dichtbij de voorzieningen en de ski gebieden. Ook het zwembad is bezocht en het vervoer is prima in deze gebieden. Volgend jaar weer! Groet, Sylvie

                                                              Beste Patrick en Sylvie,

                                                              Bedankt voor jullie review.

                                                              Bij boeking en een week voor aankomst wordt alle informatie gemaild. Zo ook aan jullie. Onze ervaring is dat jammer genoeg de informatie slecht of niet wordt gelezen. Ook is onze ervaring dat alle toegestuurde informatie niet of slecht wordt gedeeld met de andere reizigers. Misschien hebben jullie tips? Is de informatie te veel, of juist te weinig. Het is altijd goed om feedback te ontvangen. Alleen dan kunnen wij ons verbeteren.

                                                              De communicatie verliep prettig. We hebben het nog over de koekenpannen gehad. Voor het seizoen worden ze gecontroleerd. Ze zijn goed het seizoen in gegaan. Ik heb aangeboden nieuwe koekenpannen te laten bezorgen, maar nu begrijp ik waarom ik geen reactie heb ontvangen :-). Vanzelfsprekend was dat niet de bedoeling hoor.

                                                              De bovenwoning biedt plaats voor 8 volwassenen en 4 kinderen, beneden voor 8 personen. Het is dus juist dat met 14 personen boven aan tafel improviseren is. Onze ervaring is dat het de gasten altijd lukt!

                                                              Jullie waren fijne gasten. Jullie boeking zien we graag tegemoet!

                                                              Een hartelijke groet,

                                                              Els Smith

                                                              Super goed

                                                              Super mooie grote woning, netjes schoon, aardige mensen, mooi gebied. Zeker een aanrader voor grotere groepen.

A half hour from the largest waterfall in Europe, the Krimll Waterfalls. Well served by public transport. Can fly to Salzburg, which can then be taken by train to Zell am See. Within walking distance of the house is a station, so it is even possible to travel by train to nearby Schmiedhaus tie. Of course can also be taken a taxi. Only 20 minutes from the Gross Glockner Alpenstrasse.
