When Rick and Laura Sue met in 2005, it was desire and intrigue at ﬁrst sight. As much as they both tried to continue with their individual lives, there was never a doubt they would be together. But neither knew where life was to take them next. They had shared many a conversation about the future… what was ahead for both of them. Fate decided to give them a little nudge.
Shortly after Rick and Laura Sue were married, they decided a long weekend was in order and made reservations at a nearby bed and breakfast. Their experience prompted a simple conversation along with nervous excitement. This was it: owning and running a bed and breakfast. What a great way to share a new life and showcase their talents for cooking, artistry and customer service! So, they began their search together for the perfect location for a bed and breakfast. They found it at the Schuster Mansion.
Now the hard part of telling family and friends… or so they thought. The news was received with support and tears. As you can imagine, the tears were of joy and of sadness. A new chapter of life was ready to begin.
A native to Wisconsin, Rick learned his appreciation for country living from his family. Rick dedicated his career to running a family-owned retail business. He appreciates the value of high quality service and understands what it will take to get you coming back for more. Enjoy Rick’s company over a cup of coffee!
You’ve heard of the saying, “It’s all in the details.” Laura Sue is just that. Many of the ﬁnishing touches, the ﬁner details or the delightful tastes of her cookies are what she thinks about and what she makes happen each day. All of this is possible because of her commitment to a small company she founded in 1999 that specialized in graphic design – Lines & Designs, Inc. She is also a Wedding Coordinator, with that ﬂair that makes every bride feel at ease. It will be exciting to come back to the Mansion again and again as you can never expect what Laura Sue will create next to make your visit interesting and exciting each time you come.

“My wife and I had the pleasure of staying in each of the suites and found them to be spacious, comfortable and ﬁlled with beautiful antiques. Hostess Laura Sue has the true gift of hospitality and is a top-notch cook besides. The common rooms in the mansion are sumptuous and the details of the craftsmanship of the original builders are evident everywhere. We will be back. Beautiful mansion, restorations is a real labor of love. Great breakfast! Very gracious hostess.”
