My name is Shannon and my husband Doug and I are the proud owners of
Little Winnie Resort. We have four children: Shawn, Mariah,
Alisha, and Cody, who love life at the resort as much as we do.
Oh, and I can't forget to mention our two dogs, Beaver and Tootsie!
I am a native of this area as I grew up a little north of here in
Dora Lake, Minn. Prior to buying the resort we owned Graupmann
Electric in Plato, Minnesota down by Glencoe. Life was very
busy with our business and our family - too busy! When we
bought a cabin in Dora Lake, Doug fell in love with the forest and
the lifestyle. Since we both love to hunt and fish we decided that
we wanted to live in this area year around. So we sold our
company and our house and...well...here we are. We love life
in northern Minnesota and love resorting. Every year we have
the pleasure of meeting many wonderful people and we always
look forward to seeing our repeat customers whom we've come to think
of as old friends.
Since purchasing the resort in 2000 we have worked hard to make many
upgrades. We enlarged the lodge to add a restroom, a bait and
tackle shop, a gift shop and an indoor fish-cleaning house. We also
added a heated swimming pool, a large patio out font, and we've
purchased new boats and motors for our rental pool. We have updated
and renovated our accommodations and have completely remodeled three
of our cabins to date. We also enlarged our seasonal
campground which includes full hookups and a centralized shower
Over the years we have tried to add services that make your vacation
more enjoyable like babysitting, fish cleaning, and professional
fish guiding. And in the lodge we offer a big screen TV, game room,
bar, groceries, pizza, sandwiches, and good conversation in a family
We strive to offer great year around Minnesota vacations. We
love what we do and it shows! Call 1-800-346-8501 to plan your
next "up north" vacation at Little Winnie Resort.
Looking forward to
