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.


2014 Loon Blog    

    April 19: First Loon arrives in the inlet area and is a Male.  April 20: 2nd Loon arrives and another Male.  April 26: "Our" couple is here cooing at the reed area.  April 27: Nest is in with most of the Ice is out. April 28: Official Ice-Out. Lots of nasty weather for most of the week so haven't had a chance to watch if they claimed the nest. May 1: It appears they have claimed the nest since they are chasing other waterfowl out of the nesting area and guarding the Nest :)  May 2: We witnessed copulation on our webcam so look for eggs in about 10 days. May 11: Yes! Happy Mother's Day with one egg. May 12: Incubation has begun and we can't tell if there is a second egg yet or not. 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. :)
