History of the Jay Lee Inn

858493kxThis handsome home was built in the Victorian Federal style in 1902 by William and Carolyn Krueger.  It sits along the historic path of the Elkhart Lake car race track.

This wonderful property has always opened its doors to guests in Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin. It’s worked as an inn, boarding house, and simply as additional guest rooms for the nearby resorts and hotels.

You’ll find the home has been masterfully renovated to reveal its many original charms. And today it bears the name “Jay Lee Inn.” That’s the title Jacob and Leitha Stein gave it long ago when it was affiliated with Pine Point Resort.

The Innkeepers

DCF 1.0
Grand Opening December 2007

Leo and Monica Lettow purchased the property in December of 2006; lovingly restored it and opened its doors to guests like you in December 2007. Much of the careful restoration and  gorgeous Federal style decoration was done by Monica and Leo, with a “little” help from their family and friends.

You’ll appreciate how  Monica and Leo have honed the art of inn keeping, always focused on making sure you feel welcomed and comfortable. Monica’s attention to detail is clear in everything she does. That includes designing truly comfortable sleeping environments; serving great coffee and tea; and providing a breakfast that’s really worth waking up for.

Leo and Monica love to keep busy traveling, entertaining, and staying involved in many local activities.  Prior to opening the Jay Lee Inn Bed and Breakfast, they lived on a farm near Random Lake Wisconsin, where together they raised three children.
