Hello there! We are Lesley & Michael Telfser. The owners of Rocklyn Inn. Lesley & Michael met in 2013 and married in 2015. They have a hypoallergenic cockapoo named Oliver.
After many years in the medical insurance industry, Lesley decided to change her career path and follow her dream.
She has been known by friends and family to be an over the top host always striving to make everyone who visits her home comfortable and cared for. This character trait led her to discover her dream in hospitality.
Lesley studied Hospitality Hotel & Operations Management at Durham College in 2017/2018.
She and her husband Michael began ownership of the Rocklyn Inn in February 2019. This unique century home built in 1891 was previously in Michael’s family as his Aunts & Uncles owned the Rocklyn Inn in the early 1990’s.
Lesley & Michael continue to update and renovate the Inn to make it the best experience for their guests. They recently created an Ice Cream & Snack Shop as another offering out of the Rocklyn Inn. The Ice Cream Shop serves hard scoop ice cream from local Chapman’s Ice Cream Company.
Their home is equipped with modern amenities, guest rooms, spacious bathrooms and all keeping the unique character of the home.
Lesley is a delightful and friendly host who believes in offering the best customer service to her guests.
Michael is a tradesman and licensed Gas Fitter. He is the resident handyman and looks after the tougher tasks and repairs at the Rocklyn Inn.
