Thanksgiving Weekend

11/28/18 – I was lucky enough this past holiday weekend to have my family gather together right here at Sawbill.  It was a ton of fun to have the group together in a setting only the snow covered northwoods can provide.  Thanksgiving included the obligatory tonnage of food, card games, a million piece puzzle, lots of bird watching, and great company.

Black Friday was celebrated by hitting the great outdoors in search of those coveted door buster bargains.  Some of our scores included; fresh snow the perfect temperature for snowman assembly, short lines at the sledding hill, and a solid 5-6″ of ice on the lake perfect for a stroll along the shore.  -Jessica

Shortly before we departed the lake a few snow angels made an appearance, but otherwise crowds were minimal.
The final cap to the weekend included Christmas tree hunting.  We were pleasantly surprised to find the isles remained fully stocked following a busy start to the holiday shopping season.
