Peters Sunset Beach Hotel

While the Pope County Museum is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be highlighting historic sites around Pope County. We hope that you can walk or drive to visit these sites while maintaining appropriate physical distancing.

Peters Sunset Beach Hotel


Peters Sunset Beach Hotel was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.  Henry Peters organized a company in 1914 to build the hotel. In continuous operation since opening on June 1, 1915, the Sunset Beach Hotel remains the most visible link to one of Pope County’s most significant industries; its seasonal visitors.  The Hotel’s historic character and craftsman style details have not been lost despite significant change and expansion.

The current Peters Sunset Beach Resort features not only the historic hotel, but also cabins, condominiums, and family reunion cabins. Recreational options include an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, boating, and swimming.
