About Ulrike Denhof
When we first stayed in the Alpendorf in 2006, our German-American family loved the nature and the region so much, that the decision to buy our holiday chalet here was made without any hesitation! Our two sons were 3 and 7 years old at the time. As we have lived in 6 countries during the last 14 years, we are every year very happy to return to our 'Austrian Home' and have never regretted our investment for even a second...
Ulrike Denhof purchased this Chalet in 2007
Why Ulrike Denhof chose Annaberg im Lammertal
We fell in love with the concept of the Alpendorf because our privacy is important to us. Every family or group can be in their own cozy chalet, but the practical extras like restaurant, indoor pool, Ski rental and reception are at the guest's disposal in the administration building, a stone's throw from our house.
What makes this Chalet unique
Here in the fresh pure mountain air, our children and ourselves can relax from school and work stress during every season of the year. We ski, mountainbike, hike and explore the region around Salzburg that has so much to offer: magnificent nature, exciting, well-organized activities and amazing culture! Mom, Dad and the kids each have their favourite activities, be it the summer downhill sled, winter downhill skiing, mountain biking, hiking over gorgeous alpine paths and eating lunch in the rustic huts at high altitude, or shopping and museum hopping in the amazingly beautiful city of Salzburg.

Everything was wonderful! Exactly as described and let us check out late! 😊
Great place - cozy but adequate room. We were a family of 8 and had a great time. Super beautiful scenery. Smooth check in and out.
Thank you for your kind review. We have many guests from overseas who explore the beautiful Salzburg region during the summer. We are happy you liked our house and the view and hope to welcome you again some time. Kind regards, Ulrike
Great location in a very comfortable chalet
'John's Hütte' is situated in a wonderful location, close to local amenities and surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery. Annaberg in the Lammertal Valley is well-situated for visits to well-known places such as Hallstatt and Zell-am-see but a key attraction (in summer) is the opportunity to explore nearby mountain hiking trails. The summit can be accessed via the nearby chair-lift offering breathtaking views in the tranquil clear fresh air; the numerous paths lead to a number of welcoming mountain huts with good food and refreshments.
The chalet is comfortable and well-furnished with beautiful views of the mountains. There is constant hot water with effective heating. The nearby site reception offices has a small shop, offers meals and also take-out pizza. Annaberg has a good bakery and small supermarket.
We two couples thoroughly recommend this area of Austria for a late summer holiday as the Lammertal valley at this time is relatively quiet. 'John's Hütte' suited us perfectly!
Will definitely come back!
Everything was exactly as advertised. All of the tips and recommendations that were given by Ulrike were top notch, including the restaurants. In addition to an immaculate cabin, the facilities at the resort were also excellent.
All interactions with the owner were very positive. There was only one minor hiccup with the transfer of information prior to our arrival (i.e. who to meet, where to go) that was only resolved day of our departure.
I would certainly recommend this property to all types of vacationers (esp. families, couples, golfers).
Highly recommend the salt mines in Berchtesgaden and the trip to the Eagles Nest. There were so many things to do, we too did not make it to Salzburg althougnonly 45 minutes away.
We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our chalet and the Alpendorf Dachstein West! Early summer is a wonderful time to visit, as it is not so full, and the flowers in the mountains are beautiful in that season... We hope to have you as guests again to experience also other seasons :-)
We are trying our best to keep our chalet up-to-date with high-quality furnishings and all useful accessories. We are also giving our guests a lot of "insider" information about the best restaurants and excursions in the area, so that they know exactly where to get the best meals, deals and fun!
Sorry about the late arrival information - we usually send that out a week before arrival, but were travelling at the time. Please, all future guests,try to give us a mobile phone number for last minute communications. Our telephone number is on the website, and guests can always call if there is a problem.
We LOVED this lovely and cozy home away from home!
We booked this cabin on a whim because we had a last minute chance to get away for a week, and what a fantastic week it was- one of our favorite vacations ever. The views and scenery are straight from the travel brochures or the movies- we really felt like we spent a week in "The Sound of Music." The cabin is not really a cabin- it's a full, spacious home with plenty of room for two families. The cabin decor is local, authentic, cozy, warm and clean. You're surrounded by pine and have all of the modern conveniences. The beds were large and super comfortable. We also felt like this cabin had the best location in the whole village, because since it's the last one in the row, there are no neighbors on either side that can see in the windows. When you look out, you only see green trees on one side, or the mountains on the other. Also, this cabin is the closest one to the pool & restaurant- just a 3 or 4 minute walk. We had no idea there were so many wonderful things to do so close by. We rode the Summer Rodelbahn, jumped on trampolines, played mini-golf, went to the salt mines (on the only rainy day), went hiking in the mountains, went to an outdoor farming museum, swam at the pool every day, went to fantastic restaurants and playgrounds (usually located together so we could enjoy a great meal while the kids played), and went to Burg Hohenwerfen (a castle on a mountain top seen in The Sound of Music- after touring the castle we saw a great falcon show there). In fact we were so busy that we never even made it to nearby Salzburg, which had originally been our first priority! We loved it so much that we have already booked it again for the winter- can't wait to enjoy the skiing and the fireplace!
Sehr schöne Unterkunft, empfehlenswert!
Die Unterkunft ist super ausgestattet und hat eine super Aussicht.
Einzig die Parkmöglichkeiten sind nicht optimal, je Haus steht lediglich ein stellplatz (wenig Platz) zur Verfügung, dennoch gibt es 300-400m vom Haus enfernt ein Sammelparkplatz.
Das Haus bietet auch eine große Terrasse auf der man schöne Stunden verbingen kann. Zusätzlich ist alles was man braucht vorhanden. Die Räumlichkeiten waren sauber. Voll verdiente 5 Sterne!
Wir werden bestimmt wieder kommen!
Vielen Dank für Ihre Bewertung, wir freuen uns immer, wenn unsere Gäste sich wohlfühlen! Da unser Alpendorf direkt am Berg inmitten der Natur liegt, sind die Parkplätze genau bemessen, aber sie haben 50m vom Haus einen nummerierten Stellplatz. Es gibt einige Möglichkeiten für zusätzliche Plätze. Unsere liebe Haushälterin kümmert sich toll um unser Ferienhaus und achtet sehr auf Sauberkeit für unsere Gäste. Wir freuen uns, Sie hoffentlich im nächsten Jahr wieder als Gäste zu begrüßen!
Our charming, traditionally decorated Austrian ski chalet is located in the heart of the Dachstein-West ski region. Enjoy 130km of safe, family-friendly slopes (snow cannons in use) by connecting from the skilift 'Astauwinkel', only 500m from our chalet. A ski school (special fun classes for children!) and ski rental service are right by the lift. Nearby, you can also enjoy multiple other winter fun activities, such as cross-country skiing, sledding and horse-drawn sleigh rides.
In summer, many excursions in the area are possible.
Our chalet (altitude 925m) is built right across from the magnificent Gosaukamm and Donnerkogel mountains (2500m) which are part of the imposing Dachstein range. Right from our 50m2 porch, you can delight in the majesty of this Alpine view.
The administration building of the Hotel Village (50m away) houses an indoor swimming pool (great for kids), a sauna, a ski rental, mini-mart and family restaurant.
