The Outdoor Retreat is a very special place that most but not all appreciate.
It is easiest to explain by describing what kind of guest does not like The Outdoor Retreat.
People who use public transport and can not walk for an hour up hill.
People who must have their own private toilet.
People that do not understand that it is a part of ANY rural living where agriculture takes place to smell organic fertilizer particularly when there is a forcast for rain.
People who are looking for maximum service.
People who are unable to communicate. People who do not seek assistance but instead get a kick out of putting slander on the Internet.
People that might not make a good fit with the place and other guests.
People who are just looking to make a tick been there, done that.
People who do not appreciate that this is also a home for us and for volunteers .
People who are disturbed by bell-less cows, mooing.
People who would leave a place with wide open doors and windows.
People who are not open minded to alternative lifestyles.
People who do not treat their partners with respect.
People who use drugs or abuse Alcohol.
What makes The Outdoor Retreat so special.
It has one of the most spectacular views you will ever find.
Elevation difference of 1400 to 2500 meter in plain sight.
Lake and Alp view at the same time or in Iceland Lake, waterfall and Mt Fuji type of view
One of the few places where you have a wonderful lake view (normally) without Mosquitoes and normally not many other flies (sometimes more, but often less or none)
Centrally located in Europe, On route between North and South Europe and East and West Europe and centrally located in Switzerland with a fantastic micro climate. Days when you can sun bathe in winter. A bit cooler in the summer when it is unbearable in the valleys and cities below.
Or on the edge of Europe in Iceland (actually on the American tectonic plate) where the Atlantic Ocean meats the Artic Ocean.
