Devil’s Lake, N.D. is a hunting and fishing paradise. The Red River feeds the lake, which is a haven for walleye and perch. The rising lake has flooded adjacent areas, creating a perfect breeding and living habitat for water fowl.
Kyle Blanchard, owner of Woodland Resort had a growing hunting and fishing guide business, however, lodging accommodations in the area were limited to a few cabins and campgrounds. As a result, his ability to expand his core business was also limited. There was also no place to run his emerging marine and recreational equipment business.
Consolidated designed and built a masterpiece building incorporating lodging, showrooms, retail space, and offices for the operational aspects of Woodland Resort. It features a rustic, “heavy timber” and field stone construction mantra, with tongue-and-groove pine ceilings in the showroom.
The building includes special amenities for hunters and fisherman who travel with gear, boats, pets, etc. It features a pro shop with bait, tackle, and gear; a marine and ATV repair shop; boat and pontoon rentals and sales; along with a campground, meeting rooms, food and beverage facilities, and expanded parking to accommodate boats and recreational vehicles.
