Each year we spend the month of February on the ranch. This year we had the opportunity to stay at the new Lakeside Cottage. It greatly exceeded our expectations with it's spacious living room and kitchen, comfortable beds and all of the facilities of home. It is set in a quiet country setting just steps from the lake full of hungry fish. Being outdoor people we enjoyed walking the scenic trails around the ranch. While touring the trails one can see flocks of bluebirds and cardinals, blue and white herons, deer, otter and beaver. Also on the working ranch are registered cattle, buffalo, miniature horses and a variety of animals to observe and pet. For a change of pace we often go to surrounding small towns for fine casual dining, inexpensive shopping, antiqueing and meeting some warm and welcoming folks. We have found that the real gems of the ranch are the owners Paula and Jim. They do everything to make ones stay comfortable and enjoyable. You might arrive as a stranger but will surely leave as friends. We would not even consider staying anywhere else when Lakeside Cottage has all of these features.
