After sitting quietly for three years, Fishermen’s Inn is slowly coming to life once again. The treasured red barn in Elburn that was a destination for decades could open its doors this fall thanks to Mark and Patti Southern, of Big Rock.

The Southerns took ownership of the inn and the surrounding prairieland last fall, and they are in the middle of updating the building’s interior. Other than a deteriorating roof, the restaurant held up well over the few years it sat vacant and mostly is just in need of a facelift, Patti said.

The roof is fixed, and the Southerns are working on stabilizing the grounds and bringing the building up to code. They’ll add an elevator soon. Construction, including the modification of the 150-foot-long trout run, is being documented on their website at www.fishermensinnelburn.com.
