Who We Are

Introducing your new owners: Brian Buzzard, Rachel Buzzard, Sean Ryan, and Rebekah Ryan shown here with previous owners Eddie and Kate Carlin. We live in Flagstaff, Arizona – all grew up here, in fact – and are excited to share this wonderful venue with you.

Brian and Sean have been close friends since childhood and could often be found playing basketball together. Rachel and Rebekah are sisters! It is perfect, two sisters finding long time friends to marry! On top of that, our families live here in Flagstaff. For all of these reasons, buying Mountain Man and keeping it local was a no brainer for us.
