It all started when Todd
was a youngster, Roger and Sharon took their family on vacation to different resorts from Iowa to Canada, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
The Boys also went on hunting trips in Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. It was always said around the campfire how great it
would be to run a resort for a living.
After 30 years of working
at John Deere’s in Waterloo, Iowa, Roger retired temporarily to Lansing. Todd was in the Air Force for 10 years. His
job took him to Arkansas where he met Karen. They lived in Arkansas for a few years before moving to Lansing Iowa to start
a Metal Stamping business with Roger & Sharon. The whole family ran high speed punch presses and got the factory to quite
a prosperous business. Once there was an interest in a buy-out by one of our biggest customers, the dream came back. Lansing
was very good to us and we will miss the area.
So in late 2006 we started the hunt for the perfect place to start our
new life and found Dixon Lake Resort. In March of 2007 signed our names to this little jem of a place tucked away
in the Chippewa National Forest of Northern MN.
We left the boonies for the sticks and are loving it.
the “Keepers” of the resort, because we understand that, in a very real sense, this magnificent get-away belongs,
in a large part, to the families that travel here each year and find a period of peace, solitude and serenity. Our largest
goal as The Keepers is to make this a place where every one can feel like family and have a trouble free vacation on our beautiful
lake and enjoy all northern Minnesota has to offer.
We have been owners of this lovely place for 9years now.
Loving every minute of it. It is a lot of work, and you never run out of things to do, but nothing like the press shop. You
are never realy done with anything. The people we have the privalige of meeting each year or season make it all so worth it.
We try each year to do a few up dates here and there and its nice when our guest notice it.
The girls Sammy and
Emily 11 and 13 years old love all the friends they have made over the years. Its fun to watch them all grow up together.
What a life they live being on the resort. There new best friend shows up every weekend.
Thank you for visting.
