The love of water is what brought me and my husband, Gaylen, who grew up in River Falls, together years ago as lifeguards and swim instructors in my home town of Hudson, WI.  After marrying and moving to Chicago, and then to Austin, TX we longed for family and the quiet lake days that we experienced many weekends on Lake Wapogasset.  We dreamed of one day owning our own lake cabin to share with friends and family.  This dream came true in 2009 when we purchased the Wapo Lodge.  We love spending long summer days and snowy Christmas vacations at our “home away from home”.  Our children love the time they get to spend with Grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousin and relatives at the lake and they are becoming lovers of the water, whether it be on the lake or ocean, river or creek.  We hope our guests will experience these same joys and happiness with their friends and family while on the lake and cherish the memories for years to come!
