“After more than 40 years in Chicago, I no longer dread winter. I now have the ability to enjoy being outside all year long in Jefferson County. The weather is wonderful and the fishing is great. We originally visited Jefferson County for a lake vacation 10 years ago. We always said we would retire on Douglas lake as soon as we could—now our dream has come true!”

Jim S. from Chicago
