The people behind
The Kuen family Does a family guesthouse really work? Of course it does! And that’s how:
The senior boss who always knows everything
No matter what you want to know… Luis knows the answer! Even if sometimes his answer will make you smile, because that’s Luis - he loves to joke around. Our senior boss always helps out wherever there is a need, whether at the farm or at the guesthouse. He also takes care of the Mitterhofer’s vegetable garden and orchard, so that Hilde and Franzi can prepare plenty of jam for breakfast.
Hospitality consists in a little fire, a little food, and an immense quiet.

From farm to guesthouse
A (hi)story that moves
In 1967, at the young age of 20, Alois Kuen - alias Luis - took over his aunt's farmhouse. It was a great challenge to run a farm with no agricultural machines and few cows. In 1972, Luis married his long-time girlfriend Mathilde Mair, and in the following years they had four children: Christian, Ulrich, Petra and Silvia.
In the 1970s, the road that leads to the Mitterhofer was finally completed and a water pipe was installed to irrigate the meadows. In 1976, the barn was extended to make room for 30 cows.
Since the couple needed money to finance all the planned construction work, Luis tried to increase the family income by performing with his music band "Die fidelen Etschtaler" and working as a ski instructor. While he was working around, Hilde took care of all the work on the farm.
In the early 80s, renovation work continued - seven new guest rooms were built on the first floor. Business was going well, so in 1985 five more double rooms were built. Hilde looked after the guests around the clock and Luis entertained them with his music when he was not on the road.
Besides the guesthouse, in 1999 the farm was also renovated with the construction of a free-stall barn, an automated barn with milking robots and a concentrate feeding system.
In 2005, four double rooms and a holiday flat were built on the first floor and a new wellness area on the ground floor. Between 2006 and 2007, the roof and second floor have been completely demolished in order to extend the building with four holiday apartments and three double rooms. The dining room has been also enlarged internally and externally with a terrace.
In 2012, Christian, Luis and Hilde’s eldest son, has taken over the guesthouse and the farm, relieving his parents of a great responsibility. However, Hilde and Luis still help out diligently, because without them the Mitterhofer won’t be the same.
