There’s a lot of fishing going on at the resort today!

12-01-2017 Today our plumber Jerry and his brother Ron came to rough in the plumbing at cabin #5. As this was an existing cabin, they will need to cut a few holes in the sub-floor and fish the water and gas lines under the cabin. Keith, Travis and Justin are also here working on the […]

6 tools – it’s time to destroy!

We gathered some tools (always at least 6 for an official project) and started the actual cabin demolition on November 1st. We started by taking off all of the window trim and floor moldings so we could remove the carpeting. Bob took out the bathroom vanity and found that we had actually wallpapered this bathroom […]

Lake Florida sunset & loons on April 5, 2016

One of the things we love most about spring is having all of the wildlife return, especially the loons! There were many clouds, but in the end we were treated to a pretty sky. You just never know until it’s over how pretty the sunset will be! 🙂

Easter Sunday

It’s been an amazing, full Easter Sunday. We started our day at 4:15 making donuts for the choir and brass players at our Easter services at Calvary Lutheran Church in Willmar. After 3 services we had Easter Dinner with our friends Brad & Bonnie and their family. We had so much fun laughing and catching […]

Dickerson Donuts for a good cause

During the resort off season we like to be involved with things going on in the community. March is Minnesota Food Share month. The Willmar Area Food Shelf in conjunction with the local radio stations had an “I CAN” challenge. I can make donuts for anyone who contributes to the Willmar Area Food Shelf. The […]

A record has been set – the dock is in!

Today was a very exciting day. Previous to this, the record for putting the gas dock in was April 6th. Today, March 21st, Bob and I put the gas dock in. It’s not complete, but enough that we and the cats can walk on water!What fun to be able to walk on the dock to […]

At Dickerson’s Resort it’s all about the sunsets!

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 […]

The resort cat, the squirrel & the sunset

March 6th was a beautiful day at the resort and the cats enjoyed being outside. Climbing trees and chasing after us occupied their time most of the day. Simon found a red squirrel and cornered it up in a tree convinced that he could get it. Of course the red squirrel was much smaller and […]

The cabins get new shingles

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 […]

Warm weather vacations just ahead

We don’t have a lot of snow at the resort and the temperatures this winter have been quite variable. We’ve had many bitterly cold days below zero, but today was just the opposite. It’s February 19th and the temperature rose to 41 degrees causing melting everywhere! The sunset is beautiful reflecting on the water on […]
