Greetings! We hope this letter finds you well and looking forward to the upcoming new year. 2016 was our 20th summer at the resort. Wait! Did I just say that? We arrived in 1997 pretty green behind the ears, but energized for our new adventure. Our kids were just 2 1/2 years and 10 months old the day we moved in to this beautiful place. Grace is now a college graduate, Calvin is in the middle of his college years, and Jack will graduate from high school this spring. It is hard to believe that much time has passed already.
Another milestone is that 2016 was the resort’s 70th anniversary. Through six different owners over the years, we’re proud that Two Inlets Resort is still here and still operating as a classic Minnesota resort. Families continue to make memories year after year and we couldn’t be happier!
The wild turkeys are keeping us entertained at the bird feeder for now. And let me tell you, the chickadees are terrified! It looks like we’re going to have to move the feeders away from the deck. Those turkey claws are quite damaging when they get to scratching.
We were pleased with how the new lakescaping project at the swimming beach survived the winter and made a strong reappearance this spring. We’re told that the first year the plants “sleep”, the second year they “creep” and the third year they “leap.” We should see a color explosion when they “leap” in 2017!
We’ll be adding a 20 foot long Water Whoosh to the beach this year which we are certain will be popular for all ages! It’s one of those water toys that will be used differently every week, depending upon the creative ideas of the guests who use it. We’re also adding several new beds and continue to discuss some other improvements and additions for the spring.
Perhaps you have already confirmed your reservation for next summer, but if not, we still have room for you. Our online availability chart is 100% up to date. If you are thinking about booking a vacation with us it’s a good place to start.
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 2017!
