A Little Bit About Your Hosts….
Our life at Floras Lake all came about because of a phone call from Will’s friend in Oregon. Norm, whom Will had been windsurfing the Oregon coast with since his college days in the early 80’s, phoned us to tell us about a great piece of property for sale on Floras Lake. “Hey,” he said, “you guys should buy this property, build a bed & breakfast - and Will can open a windsurfing school on the lake.”
I guess it’s obvious we took his advice. We moved to Bandon in the summer of 1989 and opened the B&B in July of 1991. We lived downstairs at the B&B for the first 5 years we were open, along with our then toddler Reed (born 1990) and baby Josh (born 1992). The opportunity arose for us in 1996 to move to a home very closeby, which made two things possible: Will could be closer to his windsurfing/kiteboarding school and, most importantly, our “boys could be boys”.
We still run the B&B, do breakfast each morning, etc., but now have caretakers who live at the B&B, greet guests for us and much more.
If you get a chance to visit Floras Lake, you will see why we are here and why we have no plans to leave.
We hope to see you soon!
