Originally operated as The Beaumont Hotel, the structure is an example of Queen Anne architecture in a historical block. The three-story brick building is decorated with elaborate pressed metal cornices and bays. At the corner of the building is a polygonal domed cupola that rises from a corner bay. The hotel was constructed in 1896 by Jacob Mueller, editor of the Dodge County Pioneer, one of the important German language newspapers for southeastern Wisconsin. The weekly newspaper continues to operate today as The Mayville News. The Beaumont Hotel became a showplace of the area offering 30 hotel rooms, a confectionery shop, barber shop, several taverns, bakery and restaurant. The town?s first post office and radio station were located on the second floor. A horse drawn jitney bus provided passengers services from the Mayville train station to the hotel. The hotel lobby was popular with huge leather chairs and rocking chairs set along the windows. People would gather to play checkers and cards, and tell stories. Many people made their home at the Beaumont. The hotel was extensively renovated and updated with elevator, including the return of the handsome turret on the exterior and declared a National Historic Landmark and one of the oldest Inns in the state. Each of the sixteen rooms and suites are elegantly appointed in Old English Country style, beautifully crafted with custom-made queen size four poster-beds, queen size futons in select rooms, topped with handcrafted quilts, brass lamps, cable television, coffee makers, Scottish lace curtains, and private double whirlpool baths complete the effect. Suites include a DVD and CD player in the parlor. Breakfast is included in your stay. All rooms are non-smoking.
