Jake’s – What We Are About

home2
In 1917, my Grandfather Jake made his home on the Northwest Angle. In the mid-1930s, Jake established the first post office in the area, and was the postmaster until he retired in 1967. In 1945, he and his wife Lucy started our resort, which has been operated by our family ever since.

Since 1995, my wife Karen and I have co-managed the business along with our three sons. Because the resort is also our home, we see it as a reflection of who we are. The atmosphere at Jake’s is friendly and honest. Jake’s is continually making improvements to our facilities, but for now, they allow 37 people for max capacity.

We work hard to establish a relationship with our guests, and many of them are repeat visitors. We love our home, and we know you will too. Contact us to schedule your trip today. And don’t forget, after 4 generations or experience, we know fishing!
