This week on Urban Spelunking, we’ve got an update to a story we first talked about last October. The former Koeffler/Baumgarten family mansion, a unique 1898 side-by-side home, has been converted to a small-scale boutique hotel on the East Side of Milwaukee.

Now open as The Dubbel Dutch, 817-9 N. Marshall St., the home has been been beautifully restored. Led by developer Juli Kaufmann, architect Patrick Jones and contractor Andy Braatz, the hotel offers 17 guest rooms.

“The south-facing guest room windows offer great views of the Downtown skyline and glimpses of the lake,” writes Bobby Tanzilo in his column on OnMilwaukee.com.

“The gorgeous woodwork that was everywhere, in the form of moldings, paneling, hardwood floors, newel posts, staircase balustrades and the like are all still there,” he writes.
