Welcome to the Hunze House. Built in 1891 and recorded in the City’s register of Historic Homes, this Queen Anne Victorian-era Bed and Breakfast has been meticulously maintained and beautifully restored to satisfy modern sensibilities and expectations while preserving the timeless beauty and charm of yesteryear.
Located in the heart of the historic district known as Old Town Cape, this lovely home is a short stroll from antique shops, boutiques, nighttime entertainment, art galleries, fine dining, cafes, the mighty Mississippi River and several historical sites in downtown Cape Girardeau.
From the moment that you gaze upon the outside of the home you’ll notice the three unique dormer styles; one Gothic, one Queen Anne and one Renaissance style. Walk onto the spacious front porch and ring the original doorbell as you enter the double front doors of the Hunze House. Admire the rich architectural details, tastefully themed décor and beautiful antiques that create a peaceful atmosphere for the homeowners and the guests. The stenciled 10.5 foot ceilings, stained glass windows, hand carved wood, beautiful wood flooring, original doors and trim work all create a “wow factor” that is not easily replicated.
The home has five uniquely designed guest suites spanning two floors. Each suite is beautifully decorated with antiques that have been hand selected from around the world to reflect the theme of that specific room. All rooms feature a private bath, TV, DVDs and extra sets of luxury linens.
Enjoy relaxing in the East Ladies’ Parlor and the West Gentlemen’s Parlor. Both parlors have working pocket doors, original fireplace mantles with seasonal mantle decorations, games for entertaining your guests or family and beautiful artwork.
The formal dining room is a wonderful gathering space to enjoy afternoon coffee and gourmet dinners. It includes antique English Country Rose place settings for eight and a stunning crystal chandelier that reflects rainbows of light throughout the room.
Unique to the age of this home is the oversized kitchen with space for an island and informal dining, a generous pantry, an office area, and a full bathroom with a clawfoot tub and antique toilet. Also unique is the roomy second floor laundry room.
In the rear of the home you’ll find a spacious deck with outdoor dining and seating that overlooks the gorgeous organic garden of flowering trees and blueberry bushes. The landscaping attracts many birds and butterflies and is maintained by a Rain Bird automatic watering system.
