    This is the second year in a row we visited Rockwood. We have decided to make a yearly adventure. Loved hearing the loons in the morning. Stayed in the same cabin as last year and will be staying it again next year!

    Thank you VERY much! We think this is our happy place as well...and the loons STILL haven't flown south. See you next year!

    We have stayed several times now in a cabin at Rockwood Lodge on Poplar Lake, and each time we have had our granddaughter with us. It is now becoming "tradition" for us--a tradition that we greatly enjoy! This was our first time in cabin #4,...More
