History
Initially a family home built in 1870, The Lasker Inn B&B was eventually repurposed as a Home for Homeless Children after the Great 1900 Storm. The property then became home to a Christian Academy and later an elegant event venue. Although the home was vacant for four years after a damaging hurricane, the home was bought and renovated by Richard and Linda Denson. Today, The Lasker Inn B&B is beautifully restored and boasts a rich history and vintage beauty.

    Easy planning - beautiful result

    LUXURIOUS HISTORIC VICTORIAN MANSION WHICH YOU CAN RENT ENTIRELY FOR THE WHOLE WEEKEND- THAT WAY YOUR BRIDAL PARTY CAN ALL STAY WITH YOU AND PARTY ALL WEEKEND! RICHARD, THE OWNER, PLANS AND INCLUDES EVERYTHING IN THE PRICE-SET UP, FOOD, FLOWERS, CAKE, DJ- THE WORKS! MAKES PLANNING SO EASY. YOU HAVE YOUR ALCOHOL DELIVERED FROM A LOCAL RETAILER AND THEY ARE LICENSED TO SERVE-SAVES A TON OF $! QUALITY MAKEUP/HAIR PEOPLE CAN BE FOUND NEARBY AND A LOCAL CARRIAGE SERVICE CAN COMPLETE YOUR FAREWELL. SO MUCH BETTER THAN STRUGGLING TO ORGANIZE EVERYTHING YOURSELF OR WITH AN EXPENSIVE OUTSIDE CONSULTANT

    BeBe,
    Thank you for the kind remarks. The bride & groom were so sweet, perfect weather for a garden wedding and all the family and friends were amazing. It was truly a pleasure to host Elizabeth & Rex's fabulous wedding weekend.

    Our Perfect Wedding!

    If you are looking for the perfect venue to tie the knot look no further then the Lasker Inn! Historical charm, lovely grounds, beautiful estate rooms and an amazing staff. We feel like Richard is part of the family now! He and his staff delivered on every expectation, from the food to the flowers, to the cake and the ceremony set up, he even made sure we all walked down the aisle right on time! My wedding was planned from out of state so the Lasker's all inclusive package made wedding planning a breeze and I couldn't have been more happy with how everything turned out. We are so thankful to the Lasker Inn for making our wedding day absolutely dazzling!

    Amazing Wedding Experience

    Richard is quite the southern gentleman, The gem of Lasker Inn...like all gentleman they are a man of their word. He literally sold us a dream and WOW did he deliver...the brides ideas were set into fruition, down to the flowers, cake,etc...He made it all happen..Richard is the Fairy Godfather of Weddings. A fairytale evening filled with devine eats, laughter, good cheer and even a romantic sparkler send off that set the night aflame. The Lasker is not your typical wedding event venue. It's a wedding experience, not only for the guest but the Bride and Groom. Just when you think it's all over, and reveling in the previous evenings festivities. A brunch is prepared and the chef will walk you thru the flavors of the feast set before you. Could not ask for a better experience, venue, or wedding coordinator than Richard Connor of The Lasker Inn.

We got to spend an evening at the Lasker Inn. Even got a tour. The rooms are magnificent. Breakfast was plentiful and wonderful. They have everything you need and are very accommodating. Richard and Linda are very sweet and will bend over backwards for you. We highly recommend the Lasker Inn to get away for a night or for your wedding, reception, and honeymoon.
