Greetings from Wilderness Bay,
As the last leaves are falling, we’d like to thank all of our guests for another great season.
This year we picked more blueberries, ate more fish, and swam more in the deep blue waters of Snowbank. It was a truly beautiful summer!
We are now working to confirm reservations for 2016. If you haven’t done so, please send in your deposits before October 1st. This will help us know what cabins may be available for those waiting.
For next year we will be raising our rates $100.00 per cabin, but if you pay with cash or check, we will give you a discount of $50.00. We would also like to mention that we will have a new deluxe Lund Fury Boat for rent with a 25h.p. automatic motor, live well, depth finder, trolling motor and pedestal seats. If you think you might be interested, let us know.
Thanks for another great season at Wilderness Bay!
Sue, Jay, Kaley, Keith and Ron
Things appear peaceful here on Snowbank.
There are no boats or canoes on the lake but there is an underlying sense of urgency amongst all the creatures dwelling here. Only a small and precious number of days remain until the “freeze-up”. So the muskrats and beavers gather feverishly while the deer begin to migrate towards town. Thousands of ciscoes storm the reef off the point cabin in a mating frenzy. I can hear them tonight as I walk down to the sauna. They are jumping like crazy which sounds like a gang of children throwing rocks into the lake.
Looking across the bay towards the portage, I see Orion, the winter-maker rising.
I feel grateful for things like these.
These are things that happen every year at the same time despite what our calendars say. For some reason, this comforts me.
I also feel grateful for all of our guests who come to Wilderness Bay year after year and share their summer vacations with us.
Sincerest wishes for a good winter,
