Land of Jubilee (LOJ) BNB

Meet Your Hosts

Hello, and welcome to our historic Home! We are Paul & Sandy Clark and we want to welcome you! Together we have always had an open heart and home to welcome new friends so it seemed a perfect fit for us to begin a new adventure as hosts for a Bed and Breakfast. We have found a home with character, history, and beauty that provides a warm and inviting atmosphere. We look forward to offering one of our private rooms which includes use of a large sitting room, library and dining room. Our motto here is “come as guests, leave as friends”. This means we will honor your right to privacy yet be here to show you around the farm and hook you up with amenities if you like. We hope to see you soon!

History of LOJ BNB

The Land of Jubilee Bed & Breakfast (LOJ BNB) was started in the historic home formerly owned by Nelson Higbee.

Nelson Higbee was born on January 6, 1822, in Madison County, New York. He migrated to Michigan in 1854 and settled in Mecosta County. He played a significant role in the development of the county and the establishment of the city of Big Rapids.

Nelson Higbee was involved in various business ventures, including farming, lumbering, and real estate. He became a prominent and influential citizen in the community. Higbee was described as a “staunch Democrat” and held various positions of public trust, serving as a justice of the peace, supervisor, and county treasurer.
