I'm living your Dream Life: The Story of a Northwoods Resort Owner

I'm living your Dream Life: The Story of a Northwoods Resort Owner 
Written by Michele Vanort Cozzens

I initially purchased this book filled with trepidation as on the one hand the reviews stated that it was a book about the trials and tribulations of a young couple when they bought a resort in the country to set up a Disk Golf Centre (I will fill in more about disk golf later as I had no idea what it was). However the title was meant to be a tongue in cheek joke about how many people say to them "Oh you are living my dream life!" when if they knew how much hard work it was they would think twice.

To describe the set up she operates is 5 or so family style self catering cabins which are rented weekly from about March to the end of September. Breakfast is not supplied but the cabins have kitchens.

It is a well written interesting peek in to issues such as maintenance, bookings, family life while running a similar business as well as how they dealt with difficult customers and insurance issues.

And last but not least Disk Golf is like golf but played with frisbies and can even be played at night with glow in the dark ones. This is a family friendly sport and if they rates they charge for green fees are accurate to the book very reasonably priced.

All in all a good read for a quiet monday afternoon. You can purchase this book click here and other books by this author here.  Author website:
