Usually it’s the children who follow their parents when they move.
In this case, Lynn and John Biwer followed their daughter and son-in-law, Katie and Mike Wagener, to the lakes area in 1997.
Mike and Katie had always dreamed of owning a resort, and when they found Cold Spring Resort off County Road 29 on Upper Gull Lake, they asked Katie’s parents to join them in the venture.
“So they said, ‘How would you like to move to Brainerd?’ And I said, ‘No way!’” Lynn said, noting she wanted to live in Minneapolis where her other children lived.
