About us

Embodying the best of south Louisiana charm, the lakefront property was built in 1925 by Rudolph and Della Krause. The Greek-influenced manor is situated in the heart of Lake Charles on Shell Beach Drive.

Each public room and guest suite features hand-curated furnishings and decor for a truly dreamy experience.

The current owners, Kathryn and Drew Hoffpauir, Sr., purchased the property in hopes of preserving this iconic piece of Lake Charles history and to share it with the community and the world. While the property has undergone major renovations and upgrades, they have only added to the supreme grandeur and comfort. The property is spread across nine acres of scenic land.
