Fall Arrives at Cedar Rapids Lodge!

      Fall comes early to northern Minnesota, but this year it seems to be coming slower than past years!  That's a good thing, because we all know what comes after the fall season!  We are not ready for snow!  I can't get enough of the fall colors...and they are not even at peak yet!

      September is a slower time of the year...guests are a little quieter, pool is closed, playground is empty, but fishing continues!  Lots of crappies, bass, northern and a few walleyes!  The best part of fall and September has to be the sunsets!  These pictures were taken last night...15 minutes apart...I just couldn't stop looking!  Just awesome!

      We had a very short visitor a week ago that is beginning to remember her visits each time...
She's the perfect height for the stools in the lodge...making faces!
If you give a little girl a taste of ice cream, she will remember where you got it and beg for more!
She thought she was so cool riding her own four wheeler!  She giggled!

      We had a guest last weekend who brought a catamarand and it provided some awesome photos on a beautiful fall day!

 This kid LOVES doing fish guts with his Papa...and he celebrated their last chore...

We look forward to some quieter time to do our own fishing, reading, spending more time with our kids and grandkids!
I look forward to sewing and crafting...
Need to make more of these for the silent auction at our resort conference...coming soon!

As the resort season winds down, the construction of our "retirement home"/reunion cabin/retreat center...continues...We won't lack for something to do...we love watching the progress!
Walls going up in the walk-out basement.

Floor trusses on...beautiful sunset too!

Flooring sheets are done...ladder shows where stairs will be...main level is next!

If your family is looking for a place to make might want to check out this family resort in northern Minnesota!  We love this resort life and look forward to the 2015 resort season...after we get a little rest this winter!

Your family needs to come!  It might be your first family vacation at a resort...but I guarantee you it won't be your last!

Happy Fall!
And the Lodgemaster gets time to fish!
