The first written proof of a predecessor of this hotel dates back as far as the early 18th century. The half-timbered building that makes up the original inn was built in the middle of the 19th century. Later, but still within the 19th century, an annex was built on the southern side. This also half-timbered part of the building was used as a hotel.
The architecture resembles the typical style of the Harz region, along with the recessed balconies.
The area also includes a carriage house and an outdoor restaurant.
Now (2016), only the northern part is still being used as a restaurant. The hotel part lies abandoned.
