About Us

Lynn & Michael Anderson, Owners


Mike & Lynn are both natives of Nebraska. Lynn comes from a long line of farmers and cattlemen, several of whom are still at it. She is a graduate of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and received a graduate degree in  Science and Education from the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Mike  grew up in the Los Angeles area of California after his dad’s service in the Navy stationed at Camp Pendleton, but eventually his family found their way back to Nebraska. Mike is also a Husker alum and is a Registered Nurse by trade but a fisherman at heart.

In the early 2000s, Mike & Lynn found each other and have been blissfully married ever since. Together, they owned and operated an Assisted Living Community that Lynn developed in the early 1990s, following a few years of public health service. The experience of serving people in need of special care gave them a keen insight on what it takes to ensure a tranquil and healthy environment. The lessons learned during this time in their life have been invaluable  in the attention to detail and easy peacefulness that come with helping people feel at home.  After years of visiting North Georgia, they fell in love with the trees and people and are now where they feel they should be.

Mike is an avid outdoorsman, enjoying fishing, hunting, and photography. He is excited about having a whole new handful of lakes and forests to explore. He is a tried and true Nebraska Cornhusker, and will be sporting Husker Red every Saturday during football season. Lynn can be found with her nose in a book when she’s not cooking breakfast, is a huge fan of both movies and music, and is thrilled any time someone wants to play Trivial Pursuit.

Their busy lives before coming to North Georgia led them to appreciate “down time”,  and how sacred it is. In their own travels they discovered “The Joys of the Bed and Breakfast”, and feel blessed to have found The Overlook Inn. As Innkeepers, they hope pass along that joy to everyone who comes up the front sidewalk, into this truly special place at the top of the mountain. They hope to see you soon.
