About the owner

Capn Conrad, our founder and owner for 18 years:

“I used to have a short Bio here, but now I’m just an international man of mystery.  Any questions?  Just ask!”

Out of the 5 branches in our Armed Services, name the 2 I haven’t been in.

Out of the 7 continents, name the 2 I haven’t been on.

Ask me how to say “Two beers please” in your language….

Have you ever eaten a Birgus Latro?

Which of the 3 pyramids of Giza have I climbed?

I do my best to run the Guesthouse and keep it affordable for folks who don’t find the Hilton in their budget, or for folks who are tired of the white-walled-boxes of chain hotel/motels. If there’s ever anything that’s not ‘right’, please let us know so we have the chance to fix it.”

Pirate Jenny, current owner:

After helping the Captain run the Pirate Haus during 2015-2017, Jenny returned in 2022 to take over so Conrad can relax, hike, and travel. Flipping pancakes for 18 years is a long time!

“Originally from Missouri, I spent years traveling, volunteering, and innkeeping around the world. Before that I was an art teacher. My favorite thing to do is go for a swim in the cool clear springs in Florida. I prefer to maintain Conrad’s humor and charm at The Pirate Haus Inn – that’s what makes it special. With some luck, we can keep the Pirate Haus going as long as the old building keeps standing!”
