His goal is to keep the magic of Lake of the Woods and Rainy River by growing a prime team to serve guests and help the labor shortage in the hospitality industry. “I am known as an idea person that likes to watch ideas happen. This happens by building and developing teams that like to learn and build for the future,” says Joe.
Joe understands and shares the same core values and high-quality guest service expectations as the previous owners because he has walked in their shoes. He is down-to-earth and grew his business from the bottom up. He plans to honor the long-standing resort traditions while improving the guest experience. To start, The Icehole Bar & Grill will be renovated over the summer of 2022. Wheeler Point Resort will continue to offer all the other amenities you are accustomed to and superior guest service.

Minnesota-based hospitality management company, Leisure Hotels & Resorts, has been hired to assist the Wheelers Point Resort team with day-to-day management. Leisure Hotels & Resorts is a small dedicated team specializing in independent resorts. They are passionate about hospitality and have over 100 years of experience in the industry. Like Joe, this team has worked from the bottom up, and they look forward to welcoming you back to Wheelers.
