HUNKY DORY FARMS RESORT, WI

HERE’S ANOTHER STORY FROM THE 1960’s…

A friend of mine has this to tell...

My dad traveled for a living and hated to take vacations!  So, my mom would load the three kids and one of my brother's friends in the car and just head off.  One year she found the most marvelous Lodge you could imagine on a lake in Wisconsin.  

It was called Hunky Dory Lodge, corny name I know, but I just can't tell you how absolutely wonderful this place was!!!!!

The Lodge itself was this neat old two story wooden lodge with huge wrap around porches where the meals were served.  We stayed in an immaculate cabin along the lake.  When meals were ready, they rang a bell which could be heard around the lake.  It was so perfect.  The owners were just the nicest people and planned some wonderful fun nighttime activities for families.  They also had canoes and a sailboat you could rent.   It's probably the site of a shopping center now.

Now imagine her surprise when I found that it was STILL THERE in 2010!

Although there is no website, you can call for a brochure. One blogger said that the brochure has NOT changed since the 1960’s and neither  has the place! When I get a brochure, I’ll put it up here!
