The symmetrical-front house features an accentuated full height central entry portico supported by Corinthian columns, and a one-story porch flanking it on either side across the full front of the facade. The house is rectangular in shape and rests on a Lake Superior red sandstone foundation. The Hoatson House faces northwest on a residential street in the village of Laurium, Houghton County, Michigan. Today the Hoatson House is a bed and breakfast known as the Laurium Manor Inn.
