Grand Rapids, MN, Pokegama Lake, Sunny Shores Resort #1, ca 1940s
My family stayed here from 1960 to around 1980 when the Greens and Walkers owned the resort. I think it was closed shortly after 1980 and the cabins were sold to individuals. My cousins purchased and still own the last cabin to the west of the lodge at the top of the hill.
My Grandpa Dr. M.O. Hoogestraat bought it when the resort was sold in the early 70s. Their are 4 family members that still spend a lot of time there through out the summer and some in the winter. Great place to vacation.
He bought the lodge house, sorry I omitted that.
This brings back some great memories. We vacationed here when Arthur and Elizabeth Baock owned the resort and also when the Green’s and Walker’s owned it. Thank you for posting! Jim Thompson
My grand aunt and uncle Rachel and Psul Green were proprietors of Sunny Shores along with Billie and Ona Walker; your pictures are of great interest to me.
