Meet the Owner: Katie

Katie is one of John and Carol’s twin daughters. Although she doesn’t get up to the resort as often because she has a full time job in Orlando, Florida, she still is an integral part of the resort. She loves the ride Men in Black at Universal – and she got special tour – so that is her photo.

What do you love most about the resort?

That’s a tough one. I love so many things about the resort.
If I had to say one…My favorite is sitting on the edge of the dock with my feet hanging over the edge while watching the sunset. It’s so peaceful.

Ok well I can’t just have one… here’s another –

I love sitting around the campfire, cooking s’mores all while under the stars.

What is your favorite movie and why?

How to lose a guy in 10 days.

It’s funny and it’s everything a classic romantic comedy should be.

What is your favorite thing to do in the surrounding area?

The trout farm in upper Michigan. The owners are so friendly, and they really take the time to walk you through everything they do from start to finish with Trout. Plus we usually get to fed them in the ponds. Then at the end, you can catch one and cook it up and home.

What does being a resort owner mean to you?

I love the fact that we have created a place where families can create memories that last a lifetime. The resort is a very special place to me, and I love seeing it become that for our guests.

How has growing up in a resort business molded your life?

It taught me to take initiative. If I passed a piece of trash on the property or if the wind knocked down some branches, I always kept an eye out to keep the property looking sharp.
Also taught me to be a hard worker because there’s always something to do!
