A lil about John

Kind of boring but a picture of me in the office this winter.

Hello my name is John Burger those who have stayed at Ludlow’s in the past 2 years might remember me. For those who have yet to stay with us I will give you some details about who I am and what I do here at Ludlow’s.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota, Crookston with a degree in hotel & restaurant management and an emphasis on Spa & Resort Management. I am an only child, I grew up in Afton MN, I attended high school at Stillwater area high school and graduated in 2001. I have always kept a positive outlook on life since its too short to do otherwise. I love helping people and making people happy, which is why I am in the hospitality industry. I love the outdoors, fishing, hiking, meeting new people, and just hanging out and having a good time.
I first started at Ludlow’s through an internship opportunity at my school, I started in guest services as live in help and worked with Than Tibbetts my first summer. It was an awesome experience and I learned so much about everything here that summer. I never thought I could meet such a wonderful bunch of people, both the ones I work with and all the guest that I got to know that summer.
The last summer I graduated college and was ready for my second season at Ludlow’s, that summer I got to be the head of guest services and it was a lot of responsibility, but it was another awesome experience and once again I learned so much. Although I thought that last summer would be my last here at Ludlow’s and I would move on to some other adventure in the hospitality field, but Mark Ludlow offered to have me stay through the winter and learn some more about the business, how could I say no?
So I have spent the winter up here in the North Country, and I have loved it, winter up here is something that every one should experience, I have experienced some rough ones in Crookston but this is different and much more fun.
I am excited to kick off the 2006 season here at Ludlow’s Lori and I have been working pretty hard in the office and this summer is looking pretty busy and should be great, lots of old guest and lots of new ones. I am actually moving out to the resort this coming weekend to start the Island Life that I am used too. I will be living on the island with Adam who is a Ludlow’s guest services veteran, I feel that we will make an awesome team and will have a good time this summer.
There is a lot more but I will save some for the book I write when I am older , haha

Have a good one
John Burger
