Customers of Sawbill aren’t the only ones who love it here

5/24/09 – Customers of Sawbill aren’t the only ones who love it here and return year after year. The employees also have a tendency to become completely enamored with this life, the people, as well as a shared love for the Boundary Waters. Customers return year after year and so do the majority of the crew. This year, like many others, there was very little turnover in our staff. Luckily we gained two great new people (and Dan, who arrived mid April). – Lida
