Rookery Pub Fine Dining

This Week's Fresh Fish UN-Fry

Grilled North Atlantic Swordfish
in a fresh oregano and lemon marinade

Thursday thru the weekend or until it runs out (call ahead to reserve)

Moe & Larry
2-5 PM Sunday

Laura Moe and Larry Carpenter perform a unique mix of eclectic folk/Americana blended with contemporary tunes with exceptional vocals all accompanied by finger picking style guitars.

I first heard of these Twin Cities based musicians last winter when they performed in Ashland. While I couldn't attend that concert in person I was captivated by their beautiful vocals and graceful guitar picking in the music samples I discovered on their website.

I think Moe & Larry are just the sort of artists who will appeal to most of our Rookery music fans. Please come out on Sunday afternoon to help welcome them  to our outdoor stage  for the very first time.

Also for the first time this season it appears the weather may finally be a bit more cooperative for outdoor music. And don't  we deserve a little respite from all the rain and cool temperatures we've experienced here in the Northwoods this past month?   The long range forecast is calling for 72 degrees and mostly sunny on Sunday. Fingers crossed!

And don't forget, our outdoor music performances expand to Friday evenings (5-8 PM) beginning next week, July 7. Kicking off our Friday series will be Similar Dogs, another wonderful male/female duo we welcomed to the Rookery for the first time just last summer.

Looking to Buy or Sell a Lake Home or Cabin?

Recently one of our long-time Rookery guests expressed surprise upon learning that  I'm an active real estate broker, in addition to owning  the lodge and restaurant. That was a good reminder that it's generally unwise to assume much of anything. So this is my attempt to rectify that.

I've actually been selling real estate for more than seven years now. The first several of those I worked only part-time for a local real estate firm. Then about 2 1/2 years ago I decided to become more serious, earned my own broker's license, and launched Rookery Realty.

It was the right move for me at the time, since much of my real estate business begins over the bar. Still, when the opportunity arose last summer to sign on with one of the fastest growing companies in the Midwest  it made sense  to take yet another leap. And boy, am I ever glad that I did!

Since it began as a full service realty firm in 2010, has become Wisconsin's #1 lake property search engine. Some 3.5 million people visited our website in 2016. And in just the first quarter of 2017 the number of unique visitors to   surpassed  one million  for the first time  in company history.

Perhaps you've heard of Zillow? is essentially a regional website equivalent, but with one big difference. We have our own team of actual agents on the ground, now more than 100 spread between Wisconsin and Minnesota. Of these, I'm currently the northernmost agent in Wisconsin. It's a good position to be!

Since joining just a year ago I've already sold nearly as many properties as I did in my first six years in real estate combined. The most recent property I listed on Upper Eau Claire Lake near Barnes sold in just nine days!

My point here isn't to boast. My point is that if you're looking to sell or purchase a lake home or cabin, is where you want to be. And I'd love to your local agent...with this outstanding regional company to back us both up!
