Warm food served all day
At the end of the 50’s, Stanglwirt already had its first guestrooms in the Stanglwirt annex building, cosy farmhouse parlors with running water and thick eiderdowns. The hostess suggested building a breakfast room; this is how the cosy “Stübei” on the upper floor above the dining room came to be.
Stacks of old wooden planks were stored in the yard after tearing down the old “Rehm”. These planks were pickled by the sun, wind and weather for centuries. Lois, the farmer and craftsman at Stanglwirt, did not let anything go to waste and he used the old wood for the expansion. With a healthy sense for cost-efficiency he cut the old “Tram” right through the middle, so he could use both sides equally.
The “Stübei” had such a warm and comfortable atmosphere, that it quickly became the preferred room for private parties. By the way, breakfast was never served in this room. This was typical of Anna Hauser. She reacted quickly to opportunities and converted them into commercial advantages.
During the construction of the cableway in St. Johann, many workers came to Stanglwirt for a snack outside the usual meal times. At this point she hung a poster saying
“warm food served all day”. This was a novelty at this time. She brought new clientele with this poster - the organized tourist traffic. This clientele was important for the off-seasons and brought many new guests. In accordance with her tradition she supported the church. In 1961 she was the co-founder of the “Goinger Schützenkompanie”, she suggested the creation of hiking paths, and she also was a co-founder of the Bergliftgesellschaft (lift and cableway association), she supported mountaineering and winter sports. It is no longer widely known that the hostess of Stanglwirt was also very successful in the field of economic policy. The central location and the popular house were often the focus and venue for commissions and congresses.
