Grubens and Corona
March 26, 2020: and what a change in the world these pandemic days. The goal of this blog is to provide guidance on how we might best serve you.
At present and through April 10, Minnesota is in "shelter-in-place" mode. We also have ice on Lake Vermilion. The month of April is our customary "make ready" time for our season. The fishing opener is May 9; our premium season cabin rentals and boat / marine services are planned to be available from about the fishing opener to late October.
Our plans this year 2020 are impacted by the pandemic and "shelter-in-place" directive. We are intending to adjust our offerings and timings. We need to enable you to enjoy your cabin rentals following our cleaning and extra sanitization steps. We need to provide your boat from storage and support access to your island cabin. Key needs such as boat fuel and perhaps items from our convenience store and bottle shop may be made available. To do this, we need to support customer social distancing in a sanitary environment. We also need to assure our own staff neither become ill themselves nor unknowingly infect others. And, if our staff is ill, we need to backfill and maintain customer commitments and satisfaction.
Candidly, we think the clean and pure Lake Vermilion and granite and pine forest will be a wonderful place for you to escape to in 2020! We invite you to call 218-753-5000 and inquire about cabin homes with WiFi and the Lake at your doorstep. We also look forward to listening to your boating intentions so we maye schedule ourselves and a level of resources that meet your needs.
Of course, this years operations, hours of service, and offerings are subject to further definition based on governmental directives, and our customers and staff safety. Just because we did it in prior years does not mean it will be the same in 2020! We are looking forward to dialogue with you as we adjust to a challenging pandemic influenced environment. Thank you for your support and patience as we move forward and serve you long and well!
