Gordon and Leah Gallagher purchased the Irish Rose
Bed & Breakfast (formerly the Lazy Bear B&B) in December, 2006.
They hail from Kentucky, southern Indiana and Colorado where for seven
years they resided in the Front Range of the Rockies, west of Boulder,
Colorado. They believe they have found the perfect small community to
live in and to operate their bed and breakfast. Frequent guests at bed
& breakfasts throughout the Country, they have long thought of
running their own B&B incorporating the best practices and
amenities that they observed.

Louisville, Kentucky where he practiced law for over thirty years. He
was educated at the University of Cincinnati, University of Louisville
and Miami University, Florida. He worked in Yellowstone Park in the
early 1960s while in college and has had a yearning to settle in
Yellowstone Country ever since. Now retired from his law practice,
he is fulfilling a dream with Gallagher’s Irish Rose Bed &
