A Visit to the Last Resort

Danbury, Wisconsin

My 2000 summer vacation began with a visit to The Last Resort, located on 100 wooded acres and wetlands next to a private lake in Northwest Wisconsin. My grandparents, Ken & Lorraine Sansome, bought the resort for a family gathering place in 1961. My mom, Karen, and my Aunt Donna now own and operate The Last Resort for friends and family. For me, fishing is the primary attraction. Bass and sunfish are the main pursuits, and northern pike & crappie complete the foursome of sport fish at The Last Resort. Outstanding nature watching, biking, and family visiting filled out the two weeks I spent there this year.
