11/23/11 - We've added a couple of popular gifts to our online store in time for the holiday gift season. We also have quite a few used canoes left for sale if you are looking for that special gift.

Sawbill pint beer glasses were our most popular store item last summer. Each glass purchased entitles you to vote for which lake will be featured on next year's glass. Alton and Cherokee are currently running neck and neck with a few other lakes within striking distance.

Sawbill "Cup of Coffee" combo can remind you of Sawbill every morning.

11/22/11 - Here is a short video of Cindy Hansen and her dogs making their first foray onto the ice of Sawbill Lake, 11/21/2011.

11/21/11 - Winter has arrived - it seems like for good - here at Sawbill. Sawbill Lake officially froze over on Friday, November 18th. It had been more or less ice covered for more than a week, but it isn't official until it is more than 90% frozen. We have about 5" of snow on the ground, the ice is thick enough to walk on and the low temperature last night was 3 degrees - all signs that the season has turned. - Bill

The store hunkers down for the winter.

Looking west, from the store toward the canoe landing.

Cindy, Roy and Phoebe venture out on the ice for the first time this season.

11/7/11 - It's a sad day here at Sawbill. We lost our beloved golden retriever, Homer, today. He basically died of old age and his passing was as laid-back and gentle as his life. Rest in peace old friend. - Bill


Homer joins Kari and Jessa at a picnic in '07. He's looking for his plate.
