East Lakeshore Road
as "Cricket Lodge," this house was built by John Himmelein &
his wife, vaudeville actress Beatrice Earle, in 1906. Until it was sold in
1965, it remained in the family. Dorothy
Himmelein Sun, daughter of John Himmelein, had married Gus Sun, Jr.,
nationally known theatrical promoter and booking agent. Over the
years, guests to the home often were world famous musicians, actors, and
actresses of the legitimate theatre. Later additions to the house greatly
added to its beauty and potential for entertaining.
In 1985, Dorothy Sun sold "Cricket Lodge" to Chris and Frank
Yako, who now operate it as a bed and breakfast.
