I apologize. Apparently you have really turned things around at this place.
My posts were based on our visit that as I said was about 5 years ago ( I looked through my fishing records and found it was actually the summer of 2004).
Nothing in my posts was made up though. At that time the resort was terrible. Probably the most troublesome issue was calling 1 of the cabins a 3 bedroom and finding 1 of the bedrooms was actually a closet. That really did happen. They had an actual closet ( or a tiny storage room, I don't know the exact dimensions but I would guess it was no bigger than 5' x 7') with a bed crammed into it, with the bed touching the walls, no window, no second exit. That was truly deceptive, dangerous and I'd have to guess illegal. We went up with 2 other couples and everyone was shocked by this. The previous owners of this place ran about the worst operation I have ever seen or heard of.
Of course we have not even considered a second stay here after that experience so I was unaware that ownership had changed and their business practices had changed. Not knowing about the changes I was hoping to give someone a factual description of our experience. I guess my post was a snapshot of a time in the past that thankfully has been improved.
Kudos to the new owners thankfully no one else will experience the ruined vacation that we did.
p.s. I did remove my previous post since it seems it is no longer valid
As for the fishing, it was great! We caught 25 plus pike and a bunch of panfish with sub-par weather. Every where on the lake we went, we caught fish And Jay, the guy in the picture and his friend caught a ton of fish. They have live bait and a wonderful fish cleaning house.
We've already told other people and they want to book a trip.
If anyone would like to send me a message with any question's, i would kindly answer them. Don't miss out on this great place in the northwoods.
Thanks Again Dan and Diane!!!
We have heard from our customers that there have been cleaning issues in the cabins by the previous owner. However, there are absolutely no bedrooms here that are closet size with no room to walk around the bed, nor any without windows. And there is, of course, a door to the room in which the shower is in.
None of the cabins could be considered to be "close to tar paper shacks, rickety shacks, or miserable, crappy cabins" as stated. The cabins were built between the 1920's and 1950's and are remarkably sturdy.
The property itself is certainly not a dump as stated, and to say that it is not good enough for a family vacation is also not true, as evidenced by the many families that are into their second and third generations of annual family vacations here.
We are very sorry for the stated sales tactics of the previous owner, and would never condone that type of behavior. We make sure our new customers understand the rustic style of our resort, which only means that it is simple and unpretentious. Our focus is on maintaining the relaxing, family atmosphere of an old fashioned fishing resort with clean, comfortable cabins and friendly personnel.
In the short time that we noticed your posts until now, there have been over a hundred views of it. We are truly distressed to think of the number of views there may have been in the prior week.
By the way, the fishing was great this weekend for our guests!! This picture is of the second 31"+ northern of the day for Jay.
