A crazy week...
Ok, here is an example of taking on too much. On top of all my rooms being full and reletives up who we had to house in a nieghbors cabin for 4 days.  I also hosted a garden tour in which I fed 23 people lunch, had a dinner party for 13 people, took the relics out fishing, went out to dinner with family, went raspberry picking and had 8 turn overs on my rooms. Not to mention all the cleaning and meals with that many people in the house.  Whew glad thats over!  My garden is over flowing with peas, lettuce, raspberries, strawberries and herbs that need my attention this week, yah I'll get right on that!

Electricity is not something we take for granted
After two storm this week and 50 hours or so with no power, we appreciate it!  Although changing all the clocks and fretting about if guests will get here with the generators blaring is stressing, there is a rustic element to it to.  Some say we should charge extra for the pioneer experience.Foot in mouth

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.
