Faith…Family…Business/Work…and ALWAYS in that order

December 21, 2015

I recently read an article in Northern MN Girlfriends by Darcie Novak that hit home for me and thought I would share it.  It’s a must read for any woman looking for success and achieving life balance.

How to become a successful woman.  By Darcie Novak

For reasons I cannot explain, I have always been […]

Remodeling Spruce cabin

April 9, 2015

Our Spruce cabin is currently getting a major over-haul! The bathroom and kitchen were completely gutted. The wall between the bathroom and kitchen was removed to make the kitchen bigger. Unfortunately once John started removing the interior wood paneling on an exterior wall did he realize that their wasn’t enough support in the […]

Remodeling White Pine downstairs living room

February 15, 2015

The next room in the White Pine cabin that’s being remodeled is the downstairs living room. Here John is working on the ceiling. He torn down the false ceiling and put up pine. New light fixtures will be installed and new knotty pine doors to the bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room along with new pine trim. […]

Remodeling the White Pine cabin

February 6, 2015

Our White Pine cabin is currently under construction!!!! To be ready for summer.  We started with the downstairs bathroom.  The walls had nasty green/gold swirled paneling on them and the floor had the old gold flaked vinyl on it.  It looked like a bathroom from the 70’s 🙂   John took all the paneling off […]

Fall is the perfect season for hiking and biking in Northern Minnesota

August 23, 2013

Things tend to slow down a bit on the resort after Labor Day.  The kids are back in school.  The resort is a bit quieter.  The pace is even more relaxed.  For folks who enjoy nature and the outdoors, it’s the perfect season to get out into the woods to do some hiking […]

Labor Day: End of Summer or Beginning of Fall

August 12, 2013

I love summer.  I love the warmth.  I enjoy watching the kids play in the water and jump on the water trampoline.  The families and friends gather around the campfire while roasting marshmallows.  The fish house is full of the fishermen telling their stories and exaggerating the size of the fish that got […]

Family Reunions at Loon Point Resort

March 23, 2013

We have had the pleasure of having quite a few family gatherings and reunions here at Loon Point Resort.  Some are just a one-time event.  Coming one year here . . . and then the family may go to another part of the country the next year.  But many families have called Loon […]

Dreaming of warm summer days

March 13, 2013

March is one of those months in northern Minnesota  when the snows keep on coming and we get really tired of winter in general and shoveling/snow blowing in particular!   It helps to try to visualize the warmer days of spring and summer.  This is often when we start getting more emails and phone […]

Minnesota Winter Getaway

Jan 9, 2013

There’s nothing like a relaxing winter weekend in a Northern Minnesota cabin.  Recently, we’ve had a number of guests whose primary reason for coming was to RELAX!  Secondarily – some went ice fishing, another attended a biatholon at nearby Mount Itasca, and another group came for some cross-country skiing.  Soon, the snowmobilers will […]

Birdwatching at Loon Point Resort

July 29, 2012

One of our favorite things to do in the summer at our Minnesota family resort is to sit on our porch and watch the hummingbirds.  We have several feeders just off the porch and for reasons we don’t understand, we have more hummingbirds at the lodge than any of the cabins on the resort.  And July […]
