This lakeside eatery sprouted from humble beginnings.
In the early 40s, the land surrounding this eatery was surrounded by only dirt roads and cozy cabins. Marion Fowler opened a friendly little cafe in 1954, and the locals quickly flocked to it.
The original restaurant served juicy hamburgers for over 50 years.
Ski Shores Cafe was synonymous with home-cooking, and it was the go-to spot for tasty eats for five decades. In 2009, this beloved cafe fell victim to progress, and it closed its doors for good.
