After five years of operating the Mosquito Inn, owner Ramon Martinez Jr. has shut the doors for good.

The log cabin-themed bar located at 3208 4 Mile Rd. in Caledonia closed Tuesday.

“Time for a change for me,” he said. “I want to invest in a new business.”

Martinez told his customers that he had a great time running the bar and he had made good friends.

“Gonna try something new, definitely not bartending!! LOL!!” Martinez said on Facebook. “I want to thank all my bartenders past and present, you all made the place so much fun.”

A number of customers commented about the bar closing on the tavern’s Facebook page.

Barbara Caruso:I will miss every thing I’m speechless.”

Kristin Swoboda:Me too! So many great memories! Me and David Swoboda started dating there, went there on our wedding day with our wedding party and all our great memories with you and Gregory Plantz and Char Plantz. Truly a sad day!”

Vanessa Swift:  “So sorry you guys were the best. didn’t get to go there in the last year much at all as we had a lot going on at home but i had planned on going back again soon. makes me sad Sharyl Moan and Mie you guys were the first people that were nice to me when i came into town and i always felt welcome like a part of the family there. will miss it.”
