Markus: Innkeeper with a passion
Markus Jankowitsch has been running the Tilisuna Chalet since 2018. He can already look back on 22 chalet summers, during which he managed the Freiburger or the Konstanzer Chalet. “After that, we spent two summers in the valley, but my wife and I sorely missed everyday life in the mountains. And that’s why we leased the Tilisuna Chalet,” the 50 year-old explains his return to the chalet life.
His passion for the mountains is deeply rooted in him. He realised on his first ever chalet tour with his father at age 12 that he wanted to become an innkeeper. And so it happened that he spent his first summer as a 16 year-old at theNeue Heilbronner Chaletwith the Immler family. Ten more summers followed until he himself had the opportunity to lease a chalet.
His entire family has supported his decision to this day and his children look back in gratitude on an extraordinary and beautiful childhood in the great outdoors.
What Markus particularly appreciates about the mountains is the fact that it provides a balance to his winter job as an emergency paramedic with the Red Cross. “In spring, I usually can’t wait to finally get back to the mountains,” he says with a laugh.
Hearty home cooking from the region
The guests of the Tilisuna Chalet are pampered with deliberately simple but delicious home-made food that is made from regional ingredients. Dumpling and noodle variations, roast pork and specialities made with the Montafon speciality ‘Sura Kees’ can be found on the menu. “No frills and no deep fat fryer,” Markus explains his philosophy.
During a period of drought in the summer of 2018, Markus proved that it is sometimes necessary to demonstrate resourcefulness as an innkeeper. “Some hiking groups passed by the chalet for this reason. So I decided to send my guests down to the Tilisuna lake below the chalet to have a swim. I treated everybody who made it into the ice-cold water – or at least went for a short dip – with a small beer,” Markus says with a wink. “That’s the beauty of being an innkeeper: There’s not a day that goes by without something amusing happening.”
