Hoefel Haus resides in an historic 1910 Queen Anne residence that was once the house of a former mayor, Fred Ruether.  The loving restoration to its glory took place over 2017-2018.  We are pleased to share the authentic architectural detailing that was prevalent in a time when paddle wheels, Model A's and locomotives brought you to your destination.  


Washington, Missouri was a bustling port in that era and remains full of the history and community that makes it a standout in the Midwest. Rich with wine country, historic sites, gourmet meal offerings, festivals and fairs, outdoor activities and modern amenities, you will have all that magical vacations are made of.  

Whether your choice is finding treasures at the many

antique  shops, exploring galleries of local artists, sampling historied viticulture or traveling back to the time of Daniel Boone, we can point you in the right direction.  Or perhaps you are content to watch the world go by from the comfort of the swing on our wrap around porch. We can't wait to share Hoefel Haus with you.
