March Madness! (Random Notes)

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010
  • The weather has been downright crazy this month.  We have consistently had 35-50 degree temps for highs during the last 3 weeks.  The snow has been rapidly melted, especially on the hillsides of the resort.  We have very little snow left standing.  The only snow spots left are where I have piled snow from plowing this winter.  The ice on the lake is slowly withering away.  There is probably only 18″ of ice left right now.  It’s crazy, but we LOVE an early spring and we will take it every year.
  • As stated in the past, we have been building a workshop building at the top of the hill so that we have a warm workspace in the winter to work on future cabin projects and wood furniture.  The building is up and the roof is on.  We still have to put the steel siding on and finish the interior.  Those of you visiting us this year will see it as you drive down the cobblestone driveway.  I will be chipping away at it all spring, summer and fall and hope to finish it before winter.
  • We are currently running a spring special up until June 20th.  On any NEW reservations, if you book 3 nights, you will get a 4th night free.  This special is not applicable to Memorial Day Weekend.  Be on the lookout for our new “Specials & Deals” page on our website where we will be posting our current deals for the future.
  • We still have some good availability for the summer weekly reservations.  Our availability page is updated once a day.  Also remember to scroll down on the far right side to see all of the units on the calendar.
  • Keep visiting our blog for updated ice-out conditions on the lake in the next month or so.  We will do our best to take photos and let everyone know the status of it.  Based on this weather, there might a be an extended open-water panfish season leading up to the May fishing opener.  Crappies, anyone?  Last year, the ice went out on April 24th, as shown in these pictures of our bay.

That’s all for now.  Enjoy the great early spring weather, everyone!

And by the way, HAPPY ST. PATTY’S DAY!
