August 2017

Did July fly by with the blink of an eye or what?!? There has been a tremendous amount of activity around town and at the resort this past month. Once again the Forth of July Celebration was spectacular and the Blueberry Arts Fest didn’t disappoint!
To say that its been a wet summer is a little bit of an understatement but overall the weather in July has been great and guests have been enjoying some really nice days in the warm sun. All that equals fun times on the beach, water and anything outdoors for that matter. We have been seeing some pretty interesting (new to us) outdoor games again this summer. Where they come up with these we will never know but there is no lack of creativity. It’s not only great to see guests outside playing these games but it also means the grass is stomped down and there is less to mow!)
We are getting calls everyday for a few days this fall. Don’t forget The Harvest Moon Fest is the weekend after Labor Day weekend and the second annual Ely Marathon,  is happening September 22 and 23. Here’s the link
We still have some great vacation opportunities available. It’s never too late to make those last minute plans to visit us and the Ely area.  Make sure to call soon to guarantee the cabin and week/weeks or days you prefer. Please check the website for all the current up to date info and specials.

Take care,

Kerry and Sandy
