A forester's house from the 16th or 17th century is assumed to be the predecessor. The Jägermayrhäusl was first mentioned in a document in 1741 when it was sold to Wilhering Abbey . The Jägermayrhäusl has been run as an inn since 1762 . At the beginning of the 19th century, Franz Schubert is said to have often stayed in the inn now known as the Jägermayrgut. Schubert praised the excellent beer in the Jägermayr. In 1825 he chose the Jägermayrgut to organize a Schubertiade together with Anton Ottenwalt , at which he presented new songs and marches for piano. 
In 1912 the property was owned by Anton Dreher , the owner of the Schwechat brewery . This initiated a new building according to the plans of the builder Max Ortner. In the course of this new building, the existing old building structure was placed under monument protection. In October 1912 the “Caffe-Restaurant zum Jägermeier” was opened. 
During the February fights in 1934 in the Freinberg area , the Jägermayrhof was a hotly contested place. About 100 Schutzbündler led by Franz Schlagin holed up in the building. While the advancing infantry platoons of the armed forces received reinforcements, the Schutzbundler withdrew. At the surrender that evening, only 26 men were present.  6 people died and the building was badly damaged by bullets and grenade launchers.
After the Second World War , the inn didn't really get going. In 1949, the owner at the time, the sugar industrialist farmer, carried out another renovation and the "Höhen-Caférestaurant Bauer" was opened. However, in the 1950s, business continued to decline. In 1956, for example, the building was used as accommodation for refugees from Hungary. In the same year, Bauer sold his “Hotel Bauer” to the city of Linz. This enabled Mayor Ernst Koref to prevent the Jägermayrhof from being demolished. A little later, the city of Linz offered the Upper Austrian Chamber of Labor (OÖAK) the Jägermayfhof, which took over the building. 
In 1973 and 1974 another major renovation and extension was carried out according to plans by the Schinko-Nowak-Steinfelser architectural team. 
Further renovation work was carried out towards the end of the 1980s and in 1999 and 2000. In 2013, planning began for a total renovation of the Jägermayrhof. However, this required a temporary move. A suitable property was found in the Linz industrial line. 
In 2015/2016, according to plans by the Dornstädter architects, a general refurbishment of the building services, a renovation with the construction of a hotel and the creation of an underground car park took place.  There were still some buildings that were over 100 years old and no longer met the latest requirements.
The building has undergone major changes since the beginning of the 20th century. Older components can only be recognized in the basic structure. The main house has two floors with a loft. A flat gable roof with a row of flat roof dormers . On the ridge sits a ridge with an onion hat , a weather vane and a tower clock . The facades are without decoration, with a coarse-grained plaster. In the middle of the main façade (east side), the entrance door is located at ground level in a segmental arched wall made of sandstone, slightly offset inwards. To the right of it is a bronze plaque commemorating the events of February 12, 1934. Further to the right is a window with a pre-built rectangular oneBay window . There is also a memorial plaque to the left of the entrance door. This is made of marbled green artificial stone and serves in memory of Franz Schubert who was often a guest "in the old Jägermayrgut 1825". Further to the left is a window with a rectangular bay window. On the upper floor, two large arched windows are installed in three groups . In the middle of the attic, two rectangular casement windows were installed next to each other , as well as a single casement window to the right and left.
On the old building's south facade, three large, floor-to-ceiling round arched windows are used. Four single arched windows the size of the main facade were installed on the upper floor.
To the west, the extension wing from the seventies adjoins the old building. The facade was taken over without offset. On the ground floor, the same room-high round arched windows are used at ground level. Rectangular windows were used on the upper floor.
In the garden are two secessionist putti made of artificial stone, which probably date from the time it was built in 1912. They are shaped like garden gnomes , one with a dog, one with grapes, and are around 90 cm tall.
