The owner of the property is the association "Kieler Kaufmann e.V.", which wanted to create a place of meeting and exchange of opinions with the hotel of the same name. The history of the hotel dates back to the middle of the 19th century, when the banker Wilhelm Ahlmann acquired the property to build his retirement home here. After his death, his descendants initially continued to run it until they had to sell it. The estate has been owned by the association since the end of the Second World War. The hosts at the Romantik Hotel Kieler Kaufmann, Carl-Heinz and Marlies Lessau and their son Kilian Lessau.
