Ice Out and Soft Water
It has been a while since I update our Home Page. The past couple of months have been pretty quiet but, suddenly, things are changing quickly as a new season is approaching. Last Saturday, April 8, the last of the ice cleared off Girl Lake. As in years past, the loons quickly populated the ice free water and we are blessed with their calls throughout the day. Loons calling and frogs croaking, our first real signs that winter has pasted and spring is here.
Already, we are busy cleaning up the resort grounds and getting the cabins ready for their first guests. In a couple of days, we’ll turn on the water to the cabins and start spring cleaning. All cabins are scrubbed from top to bottom, all the linens and curtains are washed and repairs are made where necessary. Spring is a busy and wonderful time of the year.
Fishing opener this year is May 13. Some cabins have already been booked for opener but we still have others available. You can check our Availability for opener, Memorial Day and the entire summer by clicking the link below and scrolling through the weeks. A hint if you check the chart frequently. Updates are made as reservations are taken and those updates are posted daily. Some browsers hold old versions of a page so you will not see the updated page until you clear your browsers history and refresh the Availability page.
Several week of this coming summer season are already booked full but there is availability in every month. Spring rates are discounted over 30% from our peak season summer rates and run until June 16. We are very flexible with spring and fall reservations and will accept any dates that work for you with a two night minimum, subject to availability.
Summer rates begin on June 17 and run through August 18. Our primary reservation period for summer bookings is a full week running from Saturday to the following Saturday. However, we have found that offering shorter stays works for many guests so we offer three and four night reservations during our summer season as long as you arrive on a Saturday or depart on a Saturday. Mini-week rates are listed on our Rates page and on each cabin page of the website. You can also call us if you have any questions.
Fall rates begin on August 19 and run until mid-October when we close our seasonal cabins for the winter. Once again, we will accept any reservation that suits your time schedule with a two day minimum. Rates for all seasons are posted on our “Rates” page.
One of the key features of the web site is our “Availability” chart. On it are listed our cabins and a calendar of the upcoming vacation season. You can instantly check the availability of any cabin for any week from May through October by clicking the link below. Scroll through the weeks to find the time period you are interested in to see which cabins are available.
There aren’t many of our guests who get up to watch the sun rise but Jamie Daby, here with his family, was up with his iPad Air one day the week of June 14 -20. He took a time lapse video of the event and sent me a link. Check it out. That’s Grandpa Wipplinger getting his boat ready for an early morning outing in the lower right hand corner.
