Dear Friends,

We hope you have been staying well, and keeping motivated in your days. Here at the resort we have been greeted with some early winter weather, making for crisp and frosty sugar dusted mornings. Every season is beautiful, and we are embracing this one (albeit a touch early) just the same.

Our message this week is rather simple and straightforward...
We have made it a very clear point to not make our newsletters political, and we are not going to start now. By reminding everyone to vote is not taking a political stance, but rather encouraging everyone to use their voice. The right to vote is a privilege, and one that many people around the world are not afforded. Voting in this country gives us the chance to be heard. To have a say in our futures. To be a part of the process. To make a difference. To matter.

Look into the quiet and private caverns of your heart and mind and let your vote represent what YOU truly believe. Be a part of the forward change you want to see in this world.

Stay strong, stay kind, stay inspired. VOTE.

With love and gratitude,
Sue, Denny, Steph, Todd, Scott and James

Family-owned since 1918...
Dillman's is a nostalgic vacation getaway on a lush, private peninsula with boating, beaches, tennis, biking & more. Perfect for family vacations, reunions and retreats our resort can accommodate guests in larger lake homes, charming lakeside cabins, contemporary townhouses and motel style units, and a rustic guesthouse. Pets are welcome. For special travel packages and promotions please visit

In addition to our family resort, we also offer art workshops through the Dillman’s Art Workshop Retreat which was founded by Sue and Dennis Robertson in 1978. Through the years our retreat has hosted over 12,500 students for art workshops at Dillman’s Bay Resort in Wisconsin and various international locations. The 4 and 5 day workshops are offered in lakeside art studios as well as plein air. Students are invited to bring their friends and family along on the trip to enjoy the relaxing resort environment. Local artists are also welcome to attend classes on a day student basis. The average class price is $70 per day. Information about our 2020 schedule of workshops in watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastel, mixed media, collage, pocket sketching, fiber arts and more is online at (Up to date information and amendments to our schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic may be found here.)

While continually striving to keep our workshop pricing competitive, we recognize that the costs may still be beyond the means of some. With that in mind partial scholarships / honorariums are available as we are committed to offering art workshops because learning is a life-long and fulfilling process. To apply please visit
