Our Team

Devoted to the house, committed to your stay

Co-owners and innkeepers, Lisa Marie Ayres and John Ayres established roots in Franklin Grove when they purchased a small farm and prairie in 2010. They are the fourth owners of the house, the perfect spot for their shared love of nature and the countryside.

The revitalization of the Inn is a testament to the meticulous attention to detail and commitment to the community that Lisa and John embrace. They want guests to experience countryside living and appreciate the Inn every bit as much as they do.

Never more than a few steps away when you need them, Lisa, John and their dedicated team give you space when it’s time to relax. They’re here to ensure you have everything you’re looking for and anything you need.
