5 Highlights of the Summer

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.” -Lamentations 3:22-23

As our 2017 vacation season is coming to a close, we are once again reminded of the never-ending faithfulness of our Lord and Savior. Although it is such a blessing to be able to run a resort where families and friends can gather, there is much that could go wrong. The Lord has watched over our family and Riverside Resort in past years and this year has been no different. We want to share some of the highlights from this summer.

1. The Amazing Fireworks Show

We were able to top off our 4th of July celebration with a huge BANG! This is the second year in a row we put on a fireworks show from our main dock. This event was enjoyed by many. Our guests, family, friends, and even other boating on-lookers were able to share in the spectacular show. God again protected everyone on the shore and dock as working/playing with explosives is usually unpredictable.

2. Fabulous Fishing

It did not seem to matter this year if you were on the shore, dock, or out in a boat; you were bound to catch a fish. If you are just learning to fish or you are someone that needs more encouragement from the “thrill of the catch” this was definitely the perfect year for you. If our boys did not love fishing before this summer, they sure do now!

3. Exceptional Weather

We could not have asked for better weather during the peak of our summer season. Most years we plan for at least one or two weeks of intense heat along with at least one big storm. When the storm hits we are prepared for the electricity to go out or huge tree branches to fall. Neither of these things happened this year. As a result of this beautiful weather, our guests were able to enjoy any activity Riverside Resort had to offer.

4. Cabin Updates

This past spring we were able to make some fun changes to some of our cabins. New curtains and flooring helped to freshen up some spaces. We were pleased with the reports we received from our guests who stayed in those cabins and so glad they were able to enjoy the new updates.


This summer, at Riverside Resort, we had a record number of reunions and multiple family gatherings. It is so fun to see the resort flooded with members of the same family enjoying time with one another. To see cousins playing with cousins or grandmas and grandpas spending time with their grandchildren truly brings joy to our hearts.

Thanks for sharing in our wonderful summer!
