Land developer W.A. Spurrier and his son W.A. Spurrier built the three story hotel on the corner of Hwy. 371 and Barclay Ave. for a cost of $30,000. Everette “Pop” Evans started construction during Pine River’s boom time in 1917. Later the hotel was named the Lake Region Hotel and was owned by Charles and Gertrude Hughes.
Heritage Group North encourages anyone with memorabilia from the hotel or information or a recipe for Conservation Raised Biscuits to please contact Pat Johsnon at 218-587-4795 with any information concerning the Spurrier Hotel or for ticket information.
