Joel and I thank you for all of your wonderful compliments about
our website and our Resort; we really appreciate it.
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

June 7 & 8 during amazing Aurora Borealis
(Northern Lights) the babies were born. We named them "Aurie"
(short for Aurora) and "Boras" (short for Borealis). They are so
adorable. :) Oct 25:
Aurie and Boras grew up and left the lake by the end of
September. We had a total of 3 sets of twins this year
which is excellent. Looking forward to next season :)
