The Eagles Mere Inn and the town of Eagles Mere, is rich in history and architectural integrity. The land parcel was originally purchased by Albert Canover Little on November 7, 1887. A C Little, who built many of the architecturally significant homes in the town, built the Inn initially as housing for his construction crew and sold extra rooms to travelers. The Inn was first known as the Hotel Lewis and the Hotel Little. One hundred years ago the Inn was purchased by the Inghams and renamed the Eagles Mere Inn. Under present ownership, the Inn has been completely renovated maintaining its historical features and decorated with period artifacts and photos. Each room has been renamed to showcase historic places and events in Eagles Mere, a town with an immensely rich architectural and social history.
