Between September 5th and 10th, 2018, my adult family and I (5 in total) had the great good fortune to stay at the lovely Haus Kammern in Bramberg am Wildkogel, Austria (10 min drive to Mittersill). We were in contact with hosts Avril and John as soon as our reservations were made, and they could not have been more helpful and kind, answering every question we had. They also suggested local markets, restaurants and activities available. After a 5 hour drive from Zurich, we arrived at Haus Kammern late in the evening, and were welcomed with a bottle of wine, local bread, milk, juice, teas, and sweets on our pillows. Their home is beautiful, spacious, impeccably clean and in great condition. Every amenity one could need was made available to us. Avril and John have maps and information related to just about everything within a 2-3 hour drive from the house for your perusal. As the next and new day dawned, we were able to see just how lovely the environs are in which the house is set. We immediately went out on the wooden deck to enjoy our breakfast, which faces the northern part of the Hohe Tauern National Park, with towering mountains in view in the lifting fog. Our intention in choosing Haus Hammern was to readily access the Hohe Tauern National Park and many of its gorgeous hiking trails. By car, it took us no more than 1/2 hour to arrive at the Goldried Gondola near Metrei in Osttirol to begin accession to our first hike/the Europa Panormaweg. Each evening, after hikes and other outdoor activities, we chose to sit on the beautiful deck enjoying the sunset on the valley. Due to only one day of inclement weather, we drove to Salzburg (2 hrs in pouring rain). While driving back towards Zurich, we drove through the Gerloz Pass (gorgeous) and to Innsbruck (2 hrs). The house comfortably sleeps 7; has 2 full bathrooms, making morning routines easy for 5 adults to ready themselves; dining area, and outdoor deck furniture, that both easily seat 6-8; has parking right on the property for 2 cars; and is set just below a farm, from which we were able to see cows munching in the pasture. We were delighted with our stay in Haus Kammern and would encourage everyone considering it to feel confident and comfortable in reserving it while it is available. While Haus Kammern is truly in a gorgeous and peaceful setting, you are in relative close proximity to neighbors, not isolated at all.
Overall a very nice place in a great location. Everything in the apartment worked like hot water, Wi-Fi, Sauna, etc. When our Sommercards were not available at check in, the owner made sure they were re-printed for us. The place could use a few more lights and there were not enough towels, toilet paper or paper towels for a family of 5 staying 6 nights. Overall very good!
