As the name of the hut suggests, a lake is nearby: Lake Steinsee is about a twenty minute walk away and 160 altitude metres above the hut. It is a beautiful mountain lake with many stones and rocks. And impressive ones at that; as the mountains of Lechtal Valley are both high and imposing, including the surrounding Parzinn Mountain Range. The hut itself is located in the middle of a small grassy slope and invites all visitors who appreciate good and freshly cooked food as well as comfortable accommodation. Visitors feel immediately at home in the two dining lounges. The area around the hut is the ideal venue for climbing courses as well as being very suitable for children.
Well known surrounding mountains: Schneekarlespitze, Hinterer Gufelkopf, Steinkarspitze, Dremelspitze, Parzinntürme, Spiehlerturm.
