We are looking forward to another exciting year of hosting family vacations at our Park Rapids area resort. We recently emailed a copy of our New Years letter to resort guests and their family members who are in our database. We realize that many of our blog readers may not be guests, so I thought I'd post a version of our letter on the blog, too. Enjoy!
Until next time ~~ Jennifer
Happy New Year from Two Inlets Resort
Northern Minnesota continues to show it's beauty in a variety of ways as we settle into winter. We heat our house with a wood burning fireplace, and the ambiance it creates with it's smell and sounds adds some romance to our longest season. Don't ask how many times the wood has to be handled before it finally makes it's way into the fireplace. The extra effort is worth it!
2013 will go down in history as "The Year the Ice Wasn't Out for Opening Weekend." Bob fished Two Inlets Lake on opening day at the north end, while plenty of ice was floating around in the south half of the lake. Thank goodness the wind didn't shift. By late afternoon all the ice was finally gone. That was May 11th. It was back on November 11th, resulting in a fairly short open water season. It seems no two years are ever alike!
Speaking of fishing, Park Rapids hosted the Minnesota Governor's Fishing Opener this spring. We are proud to announce that the two biggest walleyes were caught on Two Inlets Lake! One was 28.5" and the other was 28". Those are nice fish, and it says a lot about the walleye population in our lake!
Each Christmas season we get several letters from guests. We feel it is a real compliment when either their family picture was taken here at the resort, or they mention their Two Inlets Resort vacation in their letter. It is good to be reminded how special family vacations are, and these letters remind us that your "week at the lake" is cherished time.
Thanks for being a part of the Two Inlets Resort equation. Whether you are a guest from the past, present or future, we sincerely thank you for your business and friendship.
Wishing you all the best in 2014!
Jennifer and Bob Bateman, Grace, Calvin and Jack
