Laurie and Jason, before becoming the owners of The Captain Freeman Inn, collectively spent over 24 years in the Boston hospitality world. After spending the first 7 years of her career as an Interior Designer for a large Boston firm, Laurie made the transition into the food and beverage industry spending years managing two award winning restaurants before joining the catering sector as an Event Designer and finally, Director of Service. Jason’s years in the food and beverage world were spent behind the scenes managing digital and marketing systems to ensure the best possible guest experience.
Laurie and Jason have been married since 2002 and have spent a lot of time traveling and on Cape Cod. They love trying out new restaurants and have belonged to a Supper Club for the past 20 years. But their absolute favorite thing to do is surround themselves with family and friends and eat good food and drink good wine. Laurie loves to bake and Jason loves to cook and nothing combines all of their passions and talents more than owning The Captain Freeman Inn.
