The facility also makes a beautiful natural setting for weddings and receptions or other private events. The pavilion with kitchen and bathroom facilities, as well as the cabin, can be rented for such occasions.

So though it was never the Brickners’ intention to build a restaurant, the locals, as well as those who come from places farther away, are glad they did. On long summer days and evenings, they enjoy the view of the lake as they linger over dinner or a drink from the Tiki Bar, and their children learn how to swim in the lake or build sand castles on the beach.

For Debbie, the beach no doubt brings back memories of when her own children were little. Now, the Brickners hope others, too, can build the same kind of memories.

“Everybody should be able to come and enjoy it,” Ray said.
