About Us

As a young man growing up in LaPorte, I remember nostalgically the Timbers Restaurant of the 60s, 70s and 80s that was in the old Holiday Inn. Many in our community share similar fond memories. The Timbers Restaurant of that time was truly at the center of our community. Known for its excellent food and extra-ordinary service, it was the favorite place for fine dining, parties, banquets, wedding receptions, reunions, corporate events and the like. It was a place famed for its prime rib, Sunday brunches and the preferred choice for special occasions.

While patrons through the years certainly have their own fond stories, I too have a soft spot in my heart for The Timbers… it was the place of my first job, bussing tables in 1971 at the age of 14. As a family, we came often for the Sunday Brunches. And it was the place I sat with my parents, seated at a table in front of this same magnificent fireplace, when I first introduced them to my college sweetheart, Carol, now wife and restaurant partner!

This has been a once in a life time opportunity to bring the Timbers Restaurant, as well the hotel and conference center back, returning it to its former status in the community. We look forward to serving La Porte County just as was done years ago. It is our fondest hope that you use The Timbers Restaurant and our hotel lounge, “Rother’s Pub” for all your special occasions. We pledge to serve our community, its visitors and our hotel patrons with gratitude and appreciation.
