Hidden Gem

We spent a wonderful get-away weekend at the Lazy Jack Inn. Mike and Carol are gracious hosts who make you feel like old friends. The atmosphere is cozy and relaxed with use of a refrigerator and beverage glasses if you chose to BYOB. The outstanding breakfasts were freshly made and delicious. Mike was always on hand to explain the courses and to refill your coffee cup.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind thoughts. With all the evolving industry changes is comforting to know that there are those that really appreciate a genuine B&B experience as opposed to some air thing!

Mike and Carol are wonderful hosts and ensure every detail is perfect. The Inn is lovely and the Garden Suite was spectacular. Breakfast food was wonderfully cooked and served with a smile. We would definitely recommend the Lazyjack and plan on returning soon.

Excellent inn keepers. One thing,for those who eat breakfast behind the wheel of a car with a cup of coffee and a Cliff bar a piece of , a piece of bacon would be great while on vacation.
