Our latest grouse hunters
Grouse hunting is a big deal up here and we get couples that come up for a quiet weekend, bring along their guns and walk or ride the many trails in this area.  The last few hunters did well and plan to come back again for a second weekend as the saw a lot more birds than they got.

Breads Galore
Yesterday was bread making day.  With all my fresh garden grown veggies and the apples from the orchard I visited I made 11 loafs of bread.  An all day project, with my kitchen looking like a tornado went thru it.  I ended up with 2 loafs of apple, 2 loafs of peach, 2 loafs of pumkin and 5 loafs of zuccinni bread.  After all the taste testing I didn't need dinner.

Quick trip
Visiting an apple orchard with my grandson, niece and nephew they had a corn maze and animals so they enjoyed it.   The drive was gorgeous and I returned home with lots of apples for all my baked goods.  Now I have to get busy!  I already gutted a couple of the pumkins I grew and the zuccinni, raspberries and blueberries are ready to go.  There is a winter storm warning coming for Thursday so the baking is put on hold so I can pack away all the outdoor furniture before the snow comes.

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.
