About Your Hosts
We’re John and Sherrie Porth, the owners of Loon Point Resort. In February 2014 we purchased the resort and moved here from Worthington, MN, our home since we were both kids.
Our story began in the fall of 2008 when we took a fishing trip ‘up north’. It was a breath of fresh air (literally) to be isolated from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. The air was crisp and fresh with a hint of pine, the waters were pristine, eagles soared overhead, the loons would let out their call and the quietness of the north woods was enough to soothe the soul. What a peaceful place to reflect on life and its true meaning. The trip started to create an unsettling feeling in us, a feeling of – there has to be more to life than running in different directions every day. We wanted to spend more time together as a couple and as a family but how do we do this? Then it hit us – how about running a resort. We love the outdoors and everything nature has to offer so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to live the quality of life that we were longing to have. So it began and here we are, loving every bit of it!!
Our goal is to offer a place for you to escape, reflect on life and spend time with the ones you love. Watch the sun shimmer across the lake as it starts to peek over the trees in the morning. Hear the birds wake up and sing as the sun comes up as if celebrating another new day. Another new day for you to be thankful for, to be able to spend with family and friends.
