The Second Empire style, three-story brick hotel has undergone relatively few changes over time, partly due to the fact that it has remained in nearly continuous use as a hotel. The building is five bays across the front and eight bays deep, measuring 43'2" x 79'2". The segmentally arched second floor windows on all but the rear facade have brick archivolts with decorative drip moldings. Three entrances punctuate the ground floor of the east facade. One leads into the lobby, one into the stair hall, and the third into a guest room, the Parlor Suite. Running the front of the length of the hotel is a wooden porch supported on square columns with a simple wood balustrade at the second floor level.
The mansard roof with gabled dormers and the bracketed cornice with deep entablature are typical of the Second Empire style as it was interpreted at the popular level. Three dormers project from the east and west faces of the room and eight from the north and south. The roof is covered with tern metal, which is painted white.
The main floor currently houses two fully-furnished studios and a parlor suite, each with full bathrooms. The lobby entrance is graced by a large gilt mirror, a carved table, the original marble desk and a mounted buffalo head. The third floor provides 10 bedrooms (three with attached sitting rooms), 2.5 bathrooms (European style), and a wet bar. The second-floor living quarters offer ample opportunity for additional guest rooms. A gazebo, garage/shop and storm cellar are located on the property as well. The back drive is paved. Landscaping includes planted beds, an automatic sprinkler system, a fenced back yard, a gazebo and two concrete patios.
The current owner/resident has lived on the premises for more than 30 years, operating a popular family restaurant and Bed and Breakfast from 1984-1999.
