The Jesse family has a long tradition of hospitality and a passion for cycling. It all started with Franz Jesse, who celebrated many successes in the Carinthian cycling team and opened an inn and guesthouse in 1953, the Bacherlwirt. In the 1980s, his son Hubert took over the business and expanded the small inn into the Hotel Alte Mühle. In 1991, the passionate mountain biker bought a hotel from his cousin that would later be renamed Hotel Ariell. Hubert realized his idea of the first bike and family hotel in the region. Together with his wife Annemarie, they have been running the family business on Lake Klopein for 30 years now, which has been repeatedly adapted and brought up to date over the years. In 2017, their daughter Sandra bought an apartment house next to the hotel and incorporated the enJOY house into the family business. Sandra also runs the enJOY cocktail bar in the center of Klopein. Today, the hotel and apartment house offer all the amenities for a perfect cycling holiday – and the Jesse family is looking forward to your visit!
