We have been very busy at the Goose this past few months since the state opened up from the COVID-19 pandemic. We strive to keep within the Covid-virus code as breakfasts are now served in shifts and seating is monitored to adhere as much as possible with the social distancing guidelines. We recommend you call early to reserve a room, especially in the high season between spring and late fall

Meet Charley "Yoder" Brown. He moved in mid January 2020 after losing both Slinky and Zoey this past year. He is a puppy version of Tigger and by far the best Hospitality director on staff!

Walkway to Suite - Too many hours... too many sore muscles. But now it's finished! Yea! Turned out better than I thought with it being a first time to try something like this.

Finished the fire pit. Hope it has many-a-nights of warm hearth.

From a stay in late July 2016 ---

"Our family chose the Grey Goose to be our “base” for our bi-annual family reunion. Some of us stayed here and others stayed in other venues. Diane and Jim went over and above to make us all feel welcome. We actually felt more like family then guests. We had our evening meals catered and delivered to the Grey Goose so even those who were staying elsewhere came and ate together. Everyone was welcomed. They made a point to know our names and call us by name. They helped with set up and clean up and allowed us to use anything we needed. I cannot say enough good things about our stay there. The rooms are nice and well appointed. I especially liked the bathroom set-up. The common rooms are very functional and extremely welcoming and were perfect for us. This is truly a perfect set-up for family get-togethers. If we lived anywhere close I would make this an annual getaway. Thank, Diane and Jim for your hospitality and friendship!

Tonight and tomorrow night we have a full house. All related. They played lawn games today, bubble guns this evening and closed around the fire ring and back deck watching the stars. Warms the heart to see such love gathered at the GreyGoose.

New addition- new shed. Call early to reserve a room or you may have to sleep out here!😉

Quilters and hunter unite! Have had a wonderful week hosting both at the Grey Goose. Both have had a unique shared experience. Both plan to return and share more time with us. The rain kept the hunter indoors the last two days, so he spent more time indoors than planned. Quilters were happy as clams to have their time together and even made Chris a small quilt as a keepsake to remember his time here. Makes everyone smile!!!! Loving my job and being the hostess at the Grey Goose.

Last week - first "spring" fishing outing. Fished from 10:30 to 3:00pm. Caught 60-70 Crappie, Bass, BlueGill. About a 3 to 1 ratio... 3 crappie to every bass. They were working quite hard. A strike almost every other cast. Didn't even take the boat, all shore fishing. What fun!

Better call and book now. the phone's starting to hum!

What a wonderful place to stay! Jim and Diane are absolutely have the best hospitality ever! There were 12 of us 2 kids and 4 dogs and it was like being at home. Breakfast was so good everyday!We had a lot of laughs and played games thanks to JIm and Diane. We had one little accident and Diane took him to Centerville hospital. Cody broke his arm! Just a little foot race and fell! If you come down to Lake Rathbun you need to stay there! We are already looking forward to next year already! Making memories!

We stayed with Diane and Jim for an evening. It was simply an amazing experience for me and my three teenagers. It was like being at home and we enjoyed the hospitality, accommodations, and breakfast! We can’t wait to come back....
