About Us

Greetings and Salutations! We are the new owners of Thyme For Bed: William and Crystal Britzman. We are looking forward to this new adventure! Here is some background:


Married to Crystal for over 35 years! Worked for Fedex for the last 30 years. I recently earned my Associates degree from the College of Lake County (IL). I love cycling and sailing. I currently ride a 30 year old Raleigh that I converted to a fixie. I own a Hobie 14 and hope to sail it on Cedar Lake. Other interests are architecture (especially domes!), guns and dogs.


Married to Bill for over 35 years (quite an accomplishment!). I have a Med Tech degree (BS in Chemistry) and left my current job of 24 years (Advocate hospital) to run a bed and breakfast! However, I have been in this field since high school. My talents include cooking, baking, sewing and quilting. Together we have four boys, four daughter-in-laws, four granddaughters and one grandson. Together we love to ride bicycles, motorcycles, and enjoy spending time with our grandchildren! Family is important to us! Come join us for a night’s stay and relax!
