Jacob Lake Inn
Jacob Lake Inn has been family owned and operated since it was founded by Harold and Nina Bowman in 1923. Now, their daughter Effie Dean Bowman Rich, her children and grandchildren continue the tradition of competent friendly service, comfortable beds, excellent meals and baked goods, outstanding quality Native American Arts and Crafts, and useful information about this unique area.
Jacob Lake Inn is an "Inn" in the original sense of the word: a public house which offers hospitality and recreation. The name evokes the idea of home-like comfort, rustic surroundings, and friendly service. We welcome you to visit and experience what it was like to travel when the journey was as important as the destination.
For more than 80 years we have followed the following philosophy at Jacob Lake Inn: Travelers are our guests and are welcome in our home.
