Laid-Back Family Lake Resorts
Fun -- and loyalty
At Fair Hills, everybody seems to know everybody, the cabins have no keys, and few guests bother to leave the property during the week.
"Our activity list from the 1970s looks a lot like it does today," says Beth Kaldahl Schupp, the fourth-generation owner. In fact, most customers discourage change, almost rioting when lasagna moved from Monday to Thursday. So things stay pretty much the same, cementing die-hard loyalty. Beth's mom, Barb, says, "If you come here 50 years, you get a free week. And we're giving out more of those all the time."
