Hi There, We're Tom and Steph Lantry. We are a second generation, small family business husband and wife team. We love wild blueberries, walleyes, campfires, sweatshirts and lake vermilion. At the ages of 29 (Tom) and 25 (Steph) left our day jobs as a pilot and registered nurse to run the family business. Today, you can find us raising our three daughters while operating a beautiful historic resort in Northern Minnesota.
year old resort
For us, family comes first. It's our main inspiration in this journey we're on, and we absolutely love connecting with others who share the same outlook on life.
We moved to the resort on a snowy day in April of 2013. Tom was a natural in his new role at the resort. After all, he had been training for the job since he was six. Steph took some time getting used to the rural setting, but after a short while adopted the natural landscape as home, and now couldn't imagine it any other way. We found a rhythm and have since grown our family and our business. We love calling this place home and can't wait to share it with you.
