The historic background of this building originates at the height of economic prosperity derived from the salt which gave this whole region its name and can be traced back as far as 1807. The present structure was erected in 1845 and was used as a sawmill until 1962 Between 1978 and 1982 it was used as showroom and gallery for various art exhibits. It was eventually adapted as a private residence in 1986 - with all modern comforts. The rear wall of the living room has the original bricking.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Wonderful vacation home with superb view and location
I can’t say enough about this place. What a gem! There were 6 of us and we just wanted to relax for 3 days from all of the sightseeing in Austria our previous week. I booked this months before because of the location and found we had made the best choice of the whole area. Being on the lake, surrounded by so much beauty, was amazing. The home was clean, spacious, and plenty of room for 6. Even though it’s a 2 bedroom, the sofa bed in the back living room area worked out great and still gave some privacy. Large kitchen with plenty of the right type of cooking vessels. We enjoyed getting to know the owners, Josef and his wife; kind sweet people and very accommodating. If we ever have a chance to return, we will most definitely stay here again. Have also been recommending it to my friends.

Great holiday home on a beautiful lake near a picturesque town in a wonderful region.
We were there with four adults. The one-floor facility is very spacious and has a good kitchen. There is also a good CD-player and radio. Positives: help from the owner (restaurant suggestions, address any problem with the facilities, practical advice). Hallstatt is small, so everything is in walking distance. The view over the lake is fantastic. There is internet via WiFi, and a reliable 4G mobile connection. Negatives: No TV, only a screen which is a bit old (no HDMI for example). There is a private parking space just in front of the house, but parking there is a bit tricky.

Excellent accommodation with a superb view.
The house and garden share a marvellous view of the beautiful town. The house itself is large and extremely well kitted out. It’s also very comfortable and stylish. The location is perfect. Josef and Ursula were extremely helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this accommodation.

Dear Jane and the others of you - thank you for your great review. It also was a pleasure for us to meet you and who knows, maybe we will be in Australia once instead of Austria. The name is close, just not the distance. ursula & josef

The best of the best
This location is perfect, the space is fantastic, and the hosts were great. If you are traveling to Austria, stay in Hallstatt for four nights, take your time, see the sights, and most definitely stay at Loft Am See.

Unforgettable!
Hallstatt was absolutely breathtaking and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our 2nd wedding anniversary. It was romantic, cozy, had the best views imaginable, and a great fire to cuddle up to. The best part were the swans and ducks on the lake every morning, right outside the backdoor. The house had everything we needed and more. It was in a great location. We met with Manuela who was so lovely and friendly. We honestly will never forget our stay at Loft am See.

Marvelous lake view just in front of the house
Great Location. Just besides the tourist bus station, not in the center of town. The location offers you fantastic lake view sitting in the garden in front of the house to avoid tourist noisy. 10-15 minutes walking distance to the center of town, the church. So easy to get everything you want. The house is very spacious, living room and dining room has the view of lake. Open kitchen area is impressive, and you can enjoy the beautiful lake views while preparing the breakfast and dinner cooked by yourself. 3 nights stay just past quickly. We are lucky to have great weather during our stay. Never felt bored even you were just sitting in front of the lake and do nothing for the whole day. Holiday should be like that. Relaxing your body, reading or reflection in front of so beautiful nature.

Just fabulous.
Four of us stayed in the villa. There are two bedrooms, one with a king and one with a queen bed. The futon in the lounge area was made up for us also as we were travelling as individuals rather than couples. Halstatt is truly marvellous and this villa is located on the fringe of it it with a magnificent view. The property actually sits in the lake so it is not possible to get any closer to the beauty of the surroundings! It was equipped with everything we needed and a local housekeeper on hand with any problems. We would definitely return.

Spectacular, One of our absolute favorites
I'm sorry this is a long review, but I have to tell you how much I love this place. I consider myself a well-seasoned traveler who spends several weeks each year vacationing in various global locations (mostly Europe and USA). So when I say that this is one of our all-time favorite places to stay it really means something. There is no denying that the setting for this apartment plays a big part in our feelings for it - Hallstatt is absolutely beautiful, and there is a view of the lake and mountains from every room. But this place is special too. It has many rare items for Hallstatt - private parking, an actual green lawn and garden with fruit trees directly on the lake, and a huge, nicely-appointed apartment in an historic building. I had planned hiking and sightseeing trips out into the Alps for our three night stay here, but we ended up cancelling a lot of it just so we could spend more time here at this oasis. A few of our favorite memories: outside on the grass feeding the swans and ducks, taking early morning timelapse photos of the clouds passing the mountains, watching the ferry boat pick up passengers a few lots down, and just sitting at the big dining table in the back watching the lake. The stainless kitchen was fully equipped with high quality appliances so I *wanted* to cook here - we weren't trying to save money. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was great. I hope we can fit Hallstatt back into our future travel plans so that we can return here. I will comment that I booked direct with the owner via email and was required to wire transfer a deposit for half the stay. This wire transfer added an extra expense, and I was very nervous sending money to someone, having to trust that they will not take advantage. But as you can tell it all worked out just fine, and the owner contacted me two weeks before my stay to give instructions and confirm everything.
