Stepping back in time

  • 5 of 5

We had 12 people staying at the house. Everyone loved it from kids to grandparents!

It is a very old house and not like staying in a hotel, but that was part of the experience.

Would definitely go back!!

Retreat in Haus Sonnenlehen / A great atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for helping to create the space for a retreat, which worked wonders for our retreatants! The house is lovely and full of character, charm and spaciousness. Enough space for 20 people inside, comfortably! Maybe a room or two with stacked beds would even be better, just in case you wanted to offer the property for larger groups - just an idea. On the other hand, the caretaker was so very helpful and we managed to get good bedding for everyone in no-time! Thank you again for the great opportunity of staying in this lovely villa!

we have visited sonnenlehen many times and it is a very special place in our hearts. it can absorb a large number of friends and family so easily without being in eachothers pockets. the location is superb, a lovely village with everything you need (including a wonderful doctors surgery, very friendly and helpful if needed) at the foot of the untersberg; our marvellous mountain with endless walks and trails if you're into that kind of thing, spectacular views, 40 mins by bus from salzburg which has to be one of the prettiest cities in the world, 20 mins by car from konigsee; the king of all lakes, outdoor pool (3.50 euros a day) a 2 min walk away...so many things to see and do it is truly a slice of heaven. my only reservation is wanting to keep it a secret! everytime we visit we have a slightly different group and each time everyone loves it. you do need a car...and we are already looking forward to exploring new places next time we go. there is so much more to austria than snow and skiing...but shh....keep it quiet, our little secret!

A One of a Kind Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six enjoyed 4 nights here. We've stayed in many Homeway/VRBO properties, but this is probably the most unique and perhaps the best value. The house is both both very old but also well-furnished, and one has the feeling of being transported back in time to another era. Grossmain is a nice base for a Salzburg area vacation--only about 30 minutes by car, and 45 minutes by a bus that stops right in town. Berchtesgaden National Park and Lake Konigsee are just 30 minutes away. Suggestions to visitors: get a Salzburg Card; eat at Kaiser Karl's in Grossman; eat/drink at Augustiner's beer garden; see Heilbrunn Castle and the trick fountains; watch the Sound of Music before going and then be surprised as you walk the City and discover all the places where scenes were filmed ( a cheaper alternative to a guided tour). Stefan and Lisa were very responsive and helpful.

Delightful Estate, Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end the experience was delightful. Our group of eight spent a week at Haus Sonnenlehen in April 2016.

We have booked several homes for large and small groups in Europe, the USA, and Central America and Haus Sonnenlehen was the best experience yet. Stephan was prompt with responses, and because we booked so far in advance, would even check-in periodically to see if we had any questions as we were planning our trip. Before even arriving in Austria, we knew we were renting from a family who cared about and were proud of their property--it's clearly an estate they wish to preserve, not just collect rental fees from while it's in their care.

Upon arrival, Lassim introduced our group of eight to the house and the grounds and quickly got a fire going--unfortunately, our arrival was timed with cold weather and a late spring snow storm! We enjoyed spending the week exploring the estate, it's even more charming than their extensive website displays. The spacious kitchen and sitting rooms gave us plenty of space to congregate as a group; but there was also room to spread out for some alone time--I think we all found our favorite nook in the house.

We found the location to be a perfect launching point for our daily excursions--Salzburg, Herrenchiemsee, Großgmain, etc.

In addition to all of this, this was one of the best stocked homes we've rented, and by far the best value for the money spent. There were plenty of linens, pots/pans/dinnerware, firewood, cleaning supplies, etc. We wanted for nothing during our stay. For most homes we've rented, the first evening we take quick stock and do a supply run; with Haus Sonnenlehen we were able to spend our first evening settling in and enjoying each other's company!

Overall, this is our favorite home rental yet. We'd recommend Haus Sonnenlehen to any family or group of travelers looking for a unique place to stay!

Fabulous and fun haus stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a fascinating house and my 8 member family throughly enjoyed our four day visit here. We were greeted by an attentive Lassim from next door, who gave us a tour and pointed out liquid refreshments and a delicious local cake left by the owner to celebrate two of our birthdays and an anniversary. We loved the history of the house and its many artifacts, including the autographed Richard Strauss photo in the gallery. We had just visited the Strauss house in Garmisch, and were interested to learn that the home owner's uncle was a former owner of the house and was an opera singer for whom Strauss wrote an opera. In addition we learned that the home had an interesting history during the war years. The location was very convenient for our trips to Salzburg, and we enjoyed convening at the outdoor tables. A highlight trip to Salzburg was our Fraulein Maria Sound of Music bike tour, which involved cycling past many sites from the SOM movie and the beautiful Austrian countryside. I would recommend this house to any large group wanting to create wonderful memories of their trip to Austria.
