Serious craftsmanship in the service of entertainment. We brought the freedom of the outdoors inside the Three Bears Lodge Water Park. Finely wrought pine paneling leads into a bright, airy interior, while a more intimate space conceals a pair of hot tubs. Throughout, hand-painted murals, sweeping curves of sculpted concrete and towering support columns inspire the imagination.

Play and stay, North Woods style. It's almost too much fun: blue and yellow water slides twist and turn unexpectedly, curving indoors and out among warm wood ceilings and whimsical stone paths. Our satisfaction comes in seeing families enjoy the clever and unusual construction elements.

I enjoy being in a building that I know was built with the utmost quality, craftsmanship and design. Once my dream, now my reality.
