My latest wildlife siting

(Well besides all the ducks, geese, swans, skunks, porkies and squirrels.) 
        We got nailed with 6 inches of ice and snow and had no power for 4 days.  I got my ski's back out and went for a 5 mile trek with the dogs.  As I glanced down the trail a wolf ran across my path.  At first I thought it was a deer because of the size, when I went down to investigate I saw the very large oval track he left behind in the snow. Ironically this was very close to the same place I saw a cougar last summer and even closer to the place my girlfiend & I saw 2 very large bears. I may have to name it wildlife alley!


The Loons are back!
Yesterday I was out having a beer on the veranda and heard that old familiar yodle.  This is truelly the sound of the beginning of summer here on Dixon lake.  That and the morning dove which I have loved and payed attention to since childhood.  Speaking of birds we have several species visiting our feeders this time of year and you just never know what you are going to see.

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.
