Paul Bunyan's Wisconsin Dells

We’ve been closed for a couple weeks now, but that doesn’t mean the work ends! A lot of you have asked why we close in the off-season, so we wanted to give you a little glimpse into what goes on when the doors lock.

When we originally opened back in 1958, we closed in the off-season because the building wasn’t equipped to be open through the harsh winters, and the Dells became a ghost town! ❄️ ❄️As time went on, things changed and our family grew! The off-season became our time to spend some quality family time with all our babies, since the busy summer months didn’t really allow us to do that. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦💕We still cherish the time we have in the winter to be with family, even though we work side-by-side all summer! This winter we have the first of our 5th generation arriving, 👶🏽 so we’ll definitely be soaking up as much time as possible with that little munchkin! ❤️❤️ Now we take advantage of the winter by getting as much busy work done, so we’re ready to go again in the spring!

We’ve been busy cleaning all the dining rooms from the floors up! Everything gets tucked away so we can re-varnish the floors in the spring. The kitchen is fully gutted and scrubbed from top to bottom. We rummage through the gift shop and inventory every item from every company. Then we get ready to go to the trade shows and order great new items for next year! We do a ton of maintenance work both inside and out to make sure everything is in tip-top shape! 🔨🛠🔧

The countdown is on, and we’re already looking forward to reopening the doors in March for another great season! We hope you all have a wonderful winter!! ❄️
