“The service at the lodge and the hands-on friendliness of owner Valerie Hoperich. Valerie has been doing this for years and she brings a welcoming touch to the lodge that was not lost on many of the guests there. Little things like a warm bowl of homemade soup waiting for you when you came in off the boat were a huge hit.” -Shawn Arnold
