We are some of the grandchildren (in our youth) who own, manage and vacation at this wonderful log cabin built by our grandparents.
Our grandparents visited this area to fish in the 1910's and made the great decision to build this log cabin and make it their home for a large part of the year. Our parents, we, our children & theirs have made a seasonal sojourn ever since because there is so much the area has to offer.
