These faithful families have observed the inevitable changes; as the Rogers family grows and changes, so does Chimney Corners, the only resort of any size remaining on Crystal Lake. For the most part they approve, ‘It just keeps getting better,’ we’re happy to hear from ‘old’ guests.”Leola and Olin Rogers, Jim Sr.’s parents, opened the first guestbook at Chimney Corners’ main lodge in 1935. Olin, a former lumberman, was out of work in the midst of the Great Depression. Desperate to generate income for their young family, the Rogers’ turned their vacation home near Frankfort into a guesthouse for boarders. Leola oversaw the kitchen, creating wonderful Midwestern meals and presenting them gracefully for her guests. Even in the Depression era, she made sure there were rose petals in the finger bowls next to each plate. www.chimneycornersresort.com
