Many guests have said, " Your website photos don't do your resort justice, it's more beautiful in person." Joel and I thank you for all of your wonderful compliments about our website and our Resort; we really appreciate it.


 As the sun sets and fishing comes to a close you can cozy up to one of our nightly beachside campfires; relax and take in the fresh lake air; listen to the Loons call; enjoy laughter with friends and family; stargaze and make smores. Ahhhhh sounds like the best part of vacation.


2013 Loon Blog     (Our 2014 Loon Blog will be starting soon as Ice is Out)

  What a season for our Loons. The Late Spring and record late Ice Out brought many challenges this past season for successful Loon reproduction. We had a new Male this year and he didn't like our original Aluminum nest so on Memorial Day we built an Emergency Natural Cedar Nest and placed it. The Male claimed it the same day. Mama didn't lay eggs until June 18 & 20 and then July 13 Cedar was born. Our guests were fantastic taking the part of "Foster Parents" helping to provide the atmosphere the Loons needed to maintain nesting. Sadly the 2nd egg didn't hatch as the parents felt it was more important to tend to Cedar after some kayakers chased them into the reeds alarming them. It was sad to watch. This is why Loon awareness and understanding is so important for their survival and a Huge Thank You again to our Guests for all their help. We are hoping the Loons nest early and on time next year so the Lake isn't so busy when there are babies. 

  Today ~ November 2, the 3 baby Loons, one from each nesting site are still here and thriving. Cedar needed his parents for a minimum of 12 weeks and they stayed for 14 weeks which is wonderful. They never stay that late but Loons are the most amazing caring parents I have ever witnessed. I got behind on posting photos of Cedar so here is a collage showing how fast he changes and grows over 12 weeks.
