Every ticket purchased enters you in a raffle to win a one week, Saturday to Saturday cabin rental with any available boat from our fleet. Any cabin and any boat, as long as they are available during the dates you choose. Up to a $1500 value! You can check cabin availability online or give us a call at 715-476-2347.

Tickets will be sold until September 26th, 2020. Winner will be announced and contacted September 27th, 2020.

What’s the catch?

There is no catch except that the winner cannot bump anyone from a previously booked cabin. A lot of people have the same cabins reserved the same weeks every year. Winner cannot bump them. Must choose from available dates – but there are plenty! There are only two weeks during the summer that we are sold out – July 4th week and the first week in August. Cabins are open (tentatively, we still aren’t sure when we CAN open) late May through early October.

Does the prize have to be used in 2020?

No. It will not expire.

Our returning renters get first dibs on next summer’s rentals though, so if you want to come Summer 2021, you must wait until after March 1, 2021 to book unless you are choosing a week that is currently available this summer. If the week you want is available this summer, it is also available next summer. If that doesn’t make sense please call and we can explain it.

What if I win but don’t want to stay at your resort?

The week will be yours to do with as you please. It is transferable as long as you let us know what is going on. You can sell your week, you can give it away, you could use it for the most awesome wedding gift ever….whatever you want, just keep us in the loop.

What if I win but already have a cabin reserved for Summer 2021?

  • You can cash it in when you get here and we will refund your security deposit, making your stay totally free.
  • You can use it Summer 2022
  • You can come again!

What cabins do you have?

There are 9 cabins ranging from a studio to a 4 bedroom. All except the studio have a full kitchen. Every one has a screened-in porch and private pier.

What boats do you have?

We have decent Lund fishing boats and a “vintage” pontoon. We also have a tiny pontoon, perfect for couples or getting away from everyone else. Give us a call to see what is available when you are considering coming.

What exactly happens if I win?

You give us a call to get your reservation settled (pick a cabin, a boat and dates) and that is it. You show up on the Saturday, enjoy and leave the following Saturday. You do not need to pay us anything. Taxes are included in the prize. The only thing you would have to buy is replacement gas for what you used in the boat, which comes with a full tank.

I can choose any cabin?

Yes, as long as it is not already booked when you want to come.

I only go up there for snowmobiling. Can I rent a cabin in the winter?

No, we do not have any winter-able cabins at this time.

Can I bring my dog?

Hell yes.

I want to bring 15 of my friends and pile them into my free cabin. Can I?

Please don’t. That would probably be the end of our septic system. We ask that you only cram in as many people as can comfortably sleep in the provided beds and maybe one air mattress.

I have my own boat and don’t want to rent one.

No problem. We have plenty of trailer parking and every cabin comes with a private pier.

I want to buy a million dollars worth of tickets. Is that ok?

Yes it is.
