Family owned and operated since 1936, Shady Shore Resort is in the business of providing simple, rejuvenating vacations for people looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Resort’s 35 acres of lakeside property were originally homesteaded by Swedish-immigrant, Gust Hedquist, in 1892 and still don the impressive White Pines integral to the area’s historic logging industry.

Offered in a variety of sizes and floor plans the cabins can accommodate couples and family gatherings alike.
