Our big news first.  Ben and Ali announced their engagement this weekend.  We are thrilled to be adding another member to the family officially.  7 years of dating through high school and college we are excited to see them enter their next chapter in life.  They are living in Stevens Point while Ali finishes up her Bachelors’s Degree and applying for her masters in speech pathology.  Ben has entered the working world in the middle of COVID19 and is thrilled after months of looking to be starting with Jackson Hewitt doing taxes later this year.  We are excited to see them heading into the world together and coming back to visit us and help at the resort when needed


The colors have been phenomenal



Troy has been busy making trees for my shop.  The Northwoods Art Tour is this weekend and we expect hundreds of people through the sock shop.  We also have 2 other artists coming Amy Jones and Erik Peterson who will be demoing their art along with the socks Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  It will be a fun weekend.  Troy will be busy churning out trees


Each tree has its own unique look 


Nothing says fall like helping put the storm windows on the house.  Jake and Sarah were also home and got the job of helping with those along with cleaning a few cabins before heading back to Green Bay to teach Biology and Spanish


We have been moving things around in our shut down rec room.  Since the resort rec room is closed until COVID is over we decided to move some of the games to cabins,  The foosball game headed out to Bear Den’s basement for the winter.  Centipede went to Red Pine.  Pacman and Rampage are headed I think to Holiday and Kaubashine.  We will bring them back to the rec room when we can


Back to enjoying pretty pictures




Keep an eye out for specials in the 2nd half of October.  I have posted a few.  We have been extremely busy in September and October with everyone trying to get away and social distance.  We expect this to continue into late fall and early winter so get your reservations in,.  Starting November 1st we will be guaranteeing 24 hours between reservations for cabins to air out with the furnaces on.  Until then we are opening the windows and doors and enjoying the fresh air in the cabins
