Hoover House B&B and Function Venue

Once the grand home of the managers of the Sons of Gwalia Gold Mine, Hoover House is a luxury Bed and Breakfast and function venue near the historical settlement of Gwalia.

The house was designed in 1897 by the mine’s manager, Herbert Hoover, who later became the 31st President of the United States of America.

The building has been completely renovated and today B&B guests can enjoy Hoover’s legacy – three magnificent bedrooms now opulently decorated in period style, the grand dining room where mining deals were once negotiated, and the tranquil views over the spectacular Goldfields landscape from the wide verandahs.

Guests can enjoy sitting on the verandahs or the wide green front lawn overlooking the modern open pit mine, for gold is still mined at Gwalia. As night falls and the stars emerge, the peaceful ambience on the back verandah overlooking Mt Leonora has to be experienced – you might even see a kangaroo!
