Testimonial | Beautiful Wedding

“Our entire family stayed on grounds for weekend to celebrate my daughters wedding. The cabins were clean and comfortable. The view of lake was spectacular and made a beautiful wedding backdrop. The owners were amazing and very helpful. It was the perfect location for our family to spend quality time together and enjoy the beautiful northern woods. The wedding and location were absolutely perfect!”
