Our Mission

"The staff of The Lazy Bear Lodge takes great pride in providing exceptional service to our guests from the time they make their reservation to the time they check out. We want their stay to be the best Bed & Breakfast experience they have ever had by providing a comfortable stay and helping them create wonderful lasting memories."

About the Owners

The current owners, John & Marsha Speer, purchased the Lodge from the Winkelman's in 2017. In their previous careers, John was a financial executive with a large public manufacturing company and Marsha's career focused on customer service while raising two boys. Although they did not have backgrounds in hospitality, they both have a passion for travel, and whenever they traveled they often looked to stay in unique small Inns and B&Bs. They often found that meeting Innkeepers and other guests made their experience more enriching and memorable.

Over the years they often had discussions with B&B owners about their experiences of running an Inn and their desires grew to one day own and operate an Inn themselves. Their search for a B&B to purchase took them three years and after visiting over 20 properties in six states they finally fell in love with the Lazy Bear Lodge and the surrounding area.
