A peak at our Business Plan from 2013
"A generous man will prosper: He who refreshes others will himself be refreshed" Proverbs 11:25
We are Ken and Sue Schauland, Currently of Appleton Wisconsin, but soon returning to Marquette Michigan to build a new business and start our second season of life together. We will, with our combined skills and abilities, build an owner occupied Bed and Breakfast lodging, called Nestledown Bed and Breakfast. Here we will earn our livelihood, while providing "Sheltered Rest" for travelers to Marquette. We are creating a new Business in a new structure at 975 N. Lakeshore Blvd. in Marquette Michigan just 174 steps to Lake Superior. This unique Scandinavian inspired Inn will be our home and a place for Marquette's visitors to enjoy for many years.
Nestledown Bed and Breakfast L.L.C. has three simple goals:
1. Build an energy wise beautiful home that reflects the Finnish/Scandinavian esthetic, on our 1.01 acre of a former industrial foundry site, in one smooth and efficient construction year.
2. Establish and open the preferred Bed and Breakfast Inn for travelers to Marquette that offers comfort, breakfast, quiet, a warm fire, sunny windows, fresh air, gathering spaces, walk-ability, a sauna, and dramatic connections to Lake Superior and the Marquette region.
3. Build a profitable business that is able to provide an income for the owners, jobs for needed staff, tourists for Marquette's economy and to be a strong, sale-able, debt free business in 20 years.
That is what we set out to do and we are glad to report it's working!
our Scandinavian Bed and Breakfast
is 3 years old today.
We are grateful
