The B&B Oberhaushof is a work in progress. The holiday maisonette and the first studio are already open for our guests, a double room will follow soon. As soon as we receive the approval, we will install a bathroom in the existing large kitchen to complete the double room “Glärnisch”. As part of the same building phase, we plan to refurbish the former wash house below the garden. We already have the permit, we are only waiting for approval.
The idea is to create a spacious breakfast room for the colder days of the year in the wash house. In addition, the room can be used for recreation all year round. We will also install a kitchen where you can cook your own meals. On the south-facing side of the wash house, there will be a gravelled seating area with a view over the fields to the lake.
The wash house on the Oberhaushof farm has an eventful history: It was built around 1800 and, as its name suggests, originally served as a laundry building. Later, it was converted into a pigsty. Stefan’s grandfather Albert Bühler turned it into a fish farm, and under Stefan’s father, it served as a mechanical workshop. In between, it was repeatedly used as a storage room. Most recently, artist Vinzenz Meyner had his studio here.
Now, the one-storey building with a large room on the ground floor is to be integrated into the Bed & Breakfast. In addition to being used as a breakfast and recreation room, the wash house will also host events. We look forward to seeing our guests cooking, eating, talking, laughing and enjoying themselves here soon.
