About us

Dear Oak Shores Family,

Wendy Chad CherylBy now we are sure you’ve heard that Oak Shores has new owners. That’s us, Chad and Wendy Lauterbach. Over the course of the 2022 season, we are looking forward to meeting each of you. We plan to keep everything about your vacation the same as you’ve had in the past. With that being said we welcome any suggestions for improvement you might have for us as we learn the ropes of the business.

We wanted to take this opportunity to share a little bit more about ourselves and our family. We currently live outside of New Auburn, WI near the farm that Wendy grew up on, but live for our weekends in the Northwoods. We stay at our hunting property north of Winter, not far from the East side of the Chippewa Flowage. We have 3 children and a son-in-law. Our daughter Kylee, 25, is married to Zach, and they have blessed us with two beautiful grandbabies, Mack, 2.5, and Nora who is turning one this week. Our boys are Dalton, 20 and Michael (Mikey) 18.(Yes, the mullet is gone!)

For this upcoming season we are hoping to make the transition as smooth as possible for both you and ourselves. We are going to continue working with Kris and Randy at Pat’s Landing for check in’s and will be able to meet you at that time. Also, Meegan and the housekeeping staff are going to continue working with us and doing the towel service for you.

In closing, we want to recognize Cheryl for all of the hard work she has put into Oak Shores over the last 25 years. She is truly an incredible person, and we will strive to carry her enthusiasm and hard work over into the next 25 years. We also look forward to working with Pat’s Landing to help make this transition a smooth one for us all. Finally, we want to thank you, the Oak Shores family, for your continued support and look forward to a great 2022 season.

Please feel free to contact us at the new Oak Shores phone number (715) 558-5526 or email us here.

Thanks again,

Chad and Wendy Lauterbach
