JIM (far left), the "man-of-River-House", is affectionately known as the inn's professional visitor when not occupied with IL & WI Michalsen Office Furniture stores.
While PATTY (second from left), River House owner and hostess, loves cookin', going trippin', playin' with the grankids, and boatin' on the river every chance she gets.
And then, there's WHISKERS the innkeepers pet, now deceased, who we remember fondly as the friendly guardian of the Getaway Lodge from 1997 to January 2011.
Housekeeper VESNA (far right) makes sure guestrooms are clean and prepared just right for the comfort of our guests. Gratuities are appreciated, but not necessary.
