11-25-2017 The sunset was beautiful again tonight. Lake Florida has not frozen yet, so it seems like another beautiful, fall night. We’re looking forward to another great day tomorrow!
For quite awhile we have been planning a re-build of cabin #5. Our carpenter Keith called in mid October and said he would be here in 2 weeks so it looks like this will be the year! We are excited. There is much to do before he gets here. We started taking everything out of […]
Another great day at the resort. The shingling of the cabins continues in our great winter weather. The ice is getting really dark which means it’s getting water logged. If we are lucky it will just sink. We are so fortunate to live on the east side of the lake and be able to see […]
March is here and on Tuesday morning the supplies arrived to re-shingle the cabins. We had a storm in 2012 and not all of the cabins got new roofs. Justin is back now to finish them. Gigs came himself from Perkins Lumber in Willmar to deliver the shingles. Between trees and power lines it was […]
All of the sunsets in February have been very similar-bold and beautiful. Tuesday night was an exception. It was white everywhere as the wind blew and the snow flew! At times we couldn’t see the cabins!
With the resort all buttoned up for the winter and the fact that the sun moves so far south, we forget to take pictures of the sunset. In addition, the extremely cold weather isn’t fun to go out in with a camera. Yesterday, January 7th, Bob went out to check on the cabins and took […]
The kitchen cabinets for cabin #9 are being built and it’s time to pick the countertops. We are thinking we would like granite and have 3 samples to choose from. We also have 4 choices of high definition laminate to choose from. We asked our friend and neighbor Colleen to come over and give us […]
2 years ago the resort was hit by a very bad storm in May. This spring we are getting new shingles and steel siding on the cabins. Cabin # 11 is the first to be shingled. Justin Gronseth and his helper John used sheets of plywood against the cabin to make sure we didn’t also […]
Today we had our first guests visit cabin #9. As you can see, it was a beautiful day! The Peiks have been staying at Dickerson’s Resort for about 7 years. Their “official” cabin is #7, but they have also stayed in cabin #12 and the old cabin #9. The 4 of them had an overnight […]
There is a big decision to be made in cabin #9. There is a small wall in the livingroom that needs an accent color. I’m thinking blue or green. Blue is said to have a calming effect. Today we are trying out blue like the water of Lake Florida. Maybe tomorrow I will try painting […]
