Great Week for Church Group

We had a fantastic church youth group up last week. They enjoyed lots of time on the houseboat and got the grownups to put on one spectacular beach party. What a fun Minnesota adventure!

How’s the fishing on Birch Lake?

Here’s a picture of some of the catch from last week…

The fishing up near Ely MN has been great!

See the inside of a houseboat

You know what they say with real estate the most important aspect is location, location, locations. And the houseboats have that in spades – where else can you literally dive into the water from your bed. But lately we’ve had a few folks call asking for more info on the inside of the houseboat. They are very comfortable! There’s room to eat, sleep, play cards, sun tan. You can fish from your bedroom!

We wanted to post a few pictures…
