SUMMER 2016... THAT'S A WRAP!
October 8, 2016
What an exciting summer! Being brand new owners of a store and resort we weren’t sure just what we were getting ourselves into. We definitely knew that we would face some challenges as we navigated our way through. Somethings were easier than others, but we made it happen and are happy to be here!
One thing we didn’t expect was all of the support. The people of Jose Lake have been awesome! From helping us with our logo, cleaning up the left over junk from previous owners, donating items for the cabins and property, bringing a tractor down to help make our beach bigger, to just brightening our day with a good laugh when coming in to the store. It’s all been much appreciated.
Most all of our cabins are open and available for rent now. Cabin one will be opening soon. We’ve updated them with new carpet, paint, and lots of cleaning. New heaters are being installed this weekend. As far as the store goes, we’ve got our liquor license and are an authorize DNR retailer (so stop by to get your hunting licenses). We are still working diligently to be able to accept E.B.T., offer lottery, and to get the gas up and running. Unfortunately, the pumps were not maintained well and the repairs necessary are quite costly, but we’re working on it.
So plans for the coming months…. yes, we are going to be open for the winter! And, since we love to have fun we are going to be hosting several events throughout the year. Our Labor Day volleyball tournament was a blast! We had about 10 participating teams and about 70 people came out for the event. We will definitely be making that an annual happening. Saturday, October 22nd is our “Hall-O-Weekend” where we will have games, campfires, trick-or-treating and a haunted cabin tour from 7 to 9 pm. More fun things are in the works such as a winter fest, summer games, and fireworks for the 4th of July! Make sure to like us on Facebook and check the website often for details and updates.
Thank you all for a great summer season! We look forward to becoming a staple in this area and serving this awesome community.
