Built in 1915 as a Boarding house for workers at a local mill, The Osprey Inn has lent its structure to a variety of uses. In the late 20’s through early 30’s the house served as the Harrison hospital, later restored to serve as the home for the single female teachers at the school behind the Osprey and still later as an apartment complex. In 1990, the home was restored to its full glory as a Bed and Breakfast.
About the Owners
Larry & Sherry Skarda are the proud owners and inn keepers of the Osprey Inn. Sherry’s dream of owning and operating a Bed & Breakfast is a dream comes true. She is known for her outgoing personality and decorating talent. Larry’s culinary skills and years of owning his own home repair business makes for the perfect team to run the Osprey.
The Skarda’s are both California natives who longed for a quieter life away from the hustle and bustle of what Los Angeles has become. While looking for a future location to retire to, they came upon the beautiful town of Harrison and found The Osprey Inn Bed and Breakfast for sale. Seeing this as a gift from above, Larry and Sherry sold their home in Simi Valley and joined the residents of Harrison.
They are excited to have you staying with them at their new home and look forward to seeing how they can be of service to you during your stay.
The Skarda’s are animal lovers and their four-footed fur babies reside at the Osprey Inn too. Skidles, Sam, Dagwood and Gideon live in the private living quarters and are not allowed to venture into the guest rooms or hospitality areas at the Osprey, but potential guests with allergies should consider this before booking.
