Lake Florida Sunset

Watching the sunset across a frozen Lake Florida. Dreaming of warm summer days and families playing on our beach! Are you thinking about your summer vacation plans?

Pouring the footings for cabin #9

On Thursday, John came and started the forms for the cabin footings. Late in the day, Tom came and finished up. They are also working at our neighbors to the north of the resort, so it is quite handy! The footings for cabin #9 were poured on Friday, October 25th. There are many of us […]

5-16 Lake Florida Sunset

The thing we like best about the ice being off of Lake Florida is seeing the reflections in the water. Tonight we had another great sunset! This is a sure sign of spring-the leaves are coming out on the trees! 🙂 Come watch the sunsets with us!

5-5-13 The Ice stays on!

In 2012 the ice left Lake Florida on the 18th of March. 2013 is a whole different story. It is now May 5th and Lake Florida still has ice! This morning we had so much fog with the ice you couldn’t see across the lake. 🙁 The beach is still there and it is great […]

The hydro bikes will be […]

Another beautiful sunset

Snow again-that’s Minnesota!

Two days ago, April 17th, we had boat races on Lake Florida and today the boats are on “ice dock” The sand beach which was so visble is now covered with snow. The weatherman predicted cold and snow and he was right. We are very thankful-we only received about 6 inches rather than the 12 […]

Boat races on Lake Florida

4-17-13 It has been a truly long winter at the resort and in all of Minnesota. Today we had a glimmer of hope as there was about 6 feet of open water at the edge of the beach of Lake Florida! We decided it was time for boat races! Bob got a yellow and an […]

Simon looking for summer!

It has been a long winter. Simon and Sasha are just as tired of the snow as we are! We keep telling them “it won’t be long and summer will be here along with all our our wonderful resort friends. We hope we’re right!

Visitors at Dickerson’s Resort

It’s not only children and adults who enjoy coming to the resort. Many animals including birds, pheasants and deer come to visit on a regular basis. This has been a particularily long, windy and snowy winter making it difficult for the animals to find food so we have been feeding them. Now it would seem […]
