Locally or Family-Owned Business Notes

The inspiration for the location and name came from my grandfather “Doc” who loved the outdoors.
Many times he would sit on his porch swing, point with his tobacco pipe in hand across the lake and say “that would be a great place for a lil cabin.”

So his oldest grandchild, Robert, and I took his advice and built a cabin. We believe he would be proud of the place and it was only  fitting to honor him and his vision by naming it “Doc’s Lakeside Cabin”.

As our family surrounds this peaceful getaway cabin we want our guest to feel “they are family”.
