    Did this resort used to be called Elm Bay resort back in the 50’s ? I vacationed there as a young girl. It was owned by Al and Vi Grand Pre.

    Thanks

      Diane,

      Elm Bay and Sunset Bay were apparently two different resorts. These resorts were on Mission Lake in the 1950s:

      MISSION LAKE (MERRIFIELD) 1950s
      › Birchwood Resort (Bill & Sally Ross). Clean hskpg.
      cabins. Innersprings, electricity, bottle gas, bathing.’
      › Elm Bay Resort (Al Grand). Hskpg. cottages, electric
      refrigerators, gas, good boats and fishing.
      › Mission Beach Resort (Fred H. Carlson). 7 completely
      equipped modern and semi-modern hskpg. cabins.
      Showers.
      › Sunset Bay Resort. A photo of the cabins at this
      resort can be seen in Figure 57B. This resort is now a
      campground with 75 sites.

      Thanks for your interest in early resorts.

      Ren Holland
