This week we have had people in from Los Angles, Indiana and Peurto Rico.  Theres been some great conversations going on around here.  We heard all about Robins adventures in Ireland and Sonja's  busy life moving from Denmark to Wyoming to Indiana  to Minnesota.  Our new friends from the tropics did a lot of smiling and nodding as the language skills were not real polished.  Everyone really enjoyed their stays and now onto a busier week for me.

A close encounter
After dinner we hopped on the 4 wheeler and went into our back yard.  The dogs were running along with us as we reached the back of the property.  All of a sudden Teddy was on top of a brand new fawn that was lying amongst some down trees.  I think he hesitated for a moment just as Lyle jumped off the 4 wheeler & pulled him off the poor frightened fawn.  We got Teddy on the 4 wheeler and Lyle went to see if the fawn was ok.  It jumped up and stumbled about 5 yards from us and here comes Pedie, he was on it in a flash but unsure what to do with it.  We managed to pull both the dogs back and hold on to let the poor little guy escape.  He was not a happy camper but was extremely adorable.  Just before we left on this adventure I set my camera down and decided not to take it along~ Figures!

IN THE HOSPITALITY AND RESTAURANT BUSINESS FOR 40 YEARS. Lyle and Kathryn owned and operated a Minnesota Resort for 11 years prior to building the B&B.  Together they designed, built and created all the unique features in this exquisite round home built in 2007.  They added the tree house in the spring of 2015. This area is important to them as Kathryn grew up in these woods and so did her father and grandfather.
The B&B is Kathryn's baby and with her history in the restaurant and catering business she is a wiz in the kitchen.

 Lyle owns a cabinet and construction Business.
 Living in the Chippewa is a dream come true as both enjoy the lake and woods and all the activities they provide.  Both love to hunt & fish and take pride in the home and property.  Kathryn has expanded her gardens and really likes providing fresh organic vegetables and fruits to guests and family.  Another passion is caring for and grooming the ski trails, it takes a lot of hard work but is well worth the time spent.  If the temperature is above 0 Kathryn can be found on her ski trails everyday in the winter. Caring for every aspect of the B&B is what drives her and puts her in her element.
